    Vireo of some kind?

    Yellow-throated Warbler is correct.

    Hawk ID help

    For starters, there's actually no belly band. I know it's hard to see because the photo is overexposed or whatever, but the streaking continues all the way to the dark head/throat. Also, and I'm not sure how much of a real field mark this is, but Red-shouldereds always look like they have smaller beaks than Red-taileds to me. EDIT: Referring to photo one here.

    Palo Pinto Co.

    Agree with Red-shouldered Hawk, Yellow-rumped Warbler, and House Sparrows.

    scaups, yes more of those

    Peaked head, looks like Lesser to me, especially the male. Less sure on female, but leaning Lesser there too.

    Red-tailed Hawk

  7. That's a chickadee, looks like Black-capped. Where was this?

    Yucatan heron like bird

    American Flamingo a possibility down there? Juveniles or sometimes adults can be pretty pale.

    Wood Stork, White Ibis come to mind.

    Hawk questions

    Agree with all this. I knew as soon as I saw the first photo what it was, but laying out specifics as to why my brain jumps to an ID is something I still struggle with.
  12. I'm looking at Sibley second edition and he has painted the throat and cap very dark brown. I've also seen this species in the wild, trust me, brown is the right color. From distance I guarantee it looks black and white though.

    Buffy malar, gray face, thin streaking- looks like Lincoln's to me.
