  1. Taken today in South Central Kentucky. I've seen him a few times, but he finally sat still for a minute so I could get a picture! So, is this an Eastern Phoebe? Thanks
  2. Apparently Crows are having an aversion to perching on rooftops lately....lol
  3. Are we still searching for a raven or crow on a roof? I've seen them everywhere but there. LOL This is fun....waiting on the next challenge
  4. South Central Kentucky here. Over the past month, Eastern Towhees and Indigo Buntings have been at my feeders. Goldfinches are brightening up the scene too. Yellow-rumped Warbers are about and today I spied (thanks to ID help) a Ruby-crowned Kinglet. Hermit Thrush and Brown Thrashers too.
  5. I was stalking some YRW's this morning but when I went thru my pics, well, this one looks different. Feel like I should know, but this solitary confinement has my brain a bit rattled.
  6. Thanks! Since I'm pretty new to all this, I'm gonna defer the decision for the next challenge back to you @The Bird Nuts.
  7. Glanced out the window and saw this Robin and Northern Flicker just chillin' with each other. I imagine they are discussing how peaceful it is with all the Humans staying indoors! lol
  8. hmmm. They were 6 frames apart with not so great shots in between them. However, they were dropping below the tree line and popping back up. Never saw both at the same time. Thanks for the correction. Feeling a bit silly, so I'll pay closer attention to what I'm doing in future posts. Thanks
  9. Went back thru my pics. I guess I missed this one. Pretty much leaves no doubt it's a Red-shouldered Hawk. duh Thanks again.
  10. I took these yesterday and today in Warren Co. Ky (about an hour north of Nashville). I believe that the first is a Broad-winged Hawk and the second a Red-tailed Hawk. The third I think is a Red-tailed but just thought I'd check. The Hawks around here have been making the Crows crazy the last few days. Thanks.
  11. Thank you VRVan and Charlie for helping this old dog learn some new tricks. ? I've always loved watching birds and considered myself generally knowledgeable...until last year when I found this site. lol. I'm still working on my photography skills which I currently rate as "picture taker." Last year, with the help of all you wonderful people at Whatbird , I was able to id nearly 70 different birds just taking walks on my street. I live in the county and am surrounded by a combination of Woods and pastureland with ponds and everything in between all in a bend of the Barren River. It's turned into a treasure hunt of sorts, trying to spot something new everyday. And my life adventure is about to take a huge turn as I will soon be moving to the Piney Woods of NE Texas with a whole new list of treasure to discover. So, thanks again for the explanation and for helping this budding bird watcher expand her knowledge base....
  12. I took this today (same bird/2 pics). When I pulled up images of yellow-rumped warbler, it also discussed the myrtle warbler. So I was hoping someone could explain this to me. Am I understanding correctly that there are multiple kinds of yrw, and this one is the myrtle variety? Sorry if this is a silly question--I'm just trying to learn. thanks
