  1. birds 1 and 3 are ruby crowned kinglets. bird 2 I think is a song sparrow. and birds 4 are both swamp sparrows.
  2. see i agree with @akandula but disagree that you all should agree to agree with him
  3. 1-3 not sure 4 is a Swamp Sparrow 5 is a female Mallard I believe and yes 6 is a Carolina wren
  4. agree with palm warbler, nice picture
  5. although rare I would say Neotropic, Note that there are feathers between the bill and the eye which is a distinguishing factor between the two, but wait for more opinions
  6. i am sorry wrong picture here is the correct one
  7. I think you might have to let this one go because as far as i can tell from the picture and my knowing there is no way to ID this bird without further photos and probably a song description or recording. this comparison shows how close in appearance these two species really are picture via "all about birds"
  8. nice find, Istill am yet to see that guy
  9. most likely based on your location is a great crested with some faded yellow its breast, but if i was not paying attention to location this would to me appear to be an Ash-Throuted a comparison is shown here, notice how the great crested has some brighter yellow and no whit wing marks, witch your bird does have. i believe we can rule out an empidonax by the clear yellow wash on underparts and redness of tail and wing feathers.
  10. yes on on and two not sure on three.
  11. I actually do think this is a chat i think that some of the blades of grass are making the beak appear more curved than it actually is, every other feature checks out for a chat the yellow coloration on the breast the location and the size and shape..
  12. i don't know on this one, purely going on instinct i wold say this is a hairy but i don't know why so don't take that as a actual ID, i do believe the tail feathers are pure white and do not have black spots
  13. i agree with a female cowbird you can see the brown color and whiter patch on the breast
  14. note the spot on her wing and the eye line that is very close to the eye
  15. looks like a female black-throated blue to me with a little bit of over exposure
  16. I have recently taken notice to the little phrases underneath certain accounts responses such as @HamRHead I was wondering how you got this? just took a screen shot sorry for bad cropping.
  17. the whiter marks might just be some downy feathers from its rump being pushed up by wind or something like that, could also just not be shown on "all about birds"
  18. okay thanks i have been trying to work on my hawk id's
  19. i was thinking Red Crossbill as well
  20. would you mind explaining why you think it is red shouldered? i would love a zucchini!
