  1. Any help appreciated - 30 miles south of Rochester, at our feeding station, feeding from the ground. Elusive hopper.
  2. 30 miles south of Rochester NY, at a feeder with sunflower seeds. Seemed like an immature flyer. Noticeable yellow tinge to the underside. A bit larger than a mature house sparrow. Thanks as always!
  3. Immature bluebird was my wife's first thought. Said, 'no way it's a cedar waxwing - wrong shape.'
  4. My almost 6-year-old bird-watching daughter saw this new-to-us bird today. She said it was acting territorial at the water, spreading its wings out when a house sparrow came over (seen flying away in top picture). The bird was larger than an adult house sparrow. There was an impression of some hint of blue-grey under the wing and on the back. It had subtle brownish-red streaks on the breast. As always your help is much appreciated!
  5. Not sure we've seen this fellow before. Juvenile White Crowned? Brown rather than black bold stripes on head. Pink legs and feet, brown beak. Thank you!
  6. Apologies in advance - we're doing FeederWatch and hadn't seen this bird yet this year. Any help appreciated.
  7. Thank you. Here the hawk is after going down for a rodent:
  8. First time I have seen this hawk, he was sitting on one of our feeders, then up to an ash tree, then a casual attempt at a rodent, then back to the tree then gone. We are 30 miles south of Rochester NY. Striking bird, small hawk size 12-14"? Thank you for your help as always. Best, Nic
  9. Some photos of the bird this morning, getting run off the jelly feeder.
  10. We have had about 10 Baltimore Orioles come to our feeding station (20 miles south of Rochester NY) in the past week. This bird is smaller than the other orioles, its orange breast coloring is quite dark - rusty, and it gets run off the jelly feeder by the Baltimore Orioles. Mostly black back with white stripes but orange on the rump. Thanks Whatbirders!
  11. Here are somewhat clearer photos of the Clay-colored Sparrow. Thanks for the identification..
