  1. I don't have my ebird charts pulled up so I don't know exactly how rare it is, but November is very late for Ovenbird in Northern Illinois. I'd report it.
  2. Is it? The young bird in the initial photo is a Trumpeter.
  3. It's hard to say with just a single photo, but it certainly feels right for a hybrid.
  4. Agree, with those photos all are definitely Common.
  5. FWIW, my impression is a light CORE on the left, rather than HORE, on account of its heavy bill
  6. This is a Fox Sparrow, of the eastern 'Red' variety
  7. The goldfinch is a Lesser, notice the yellow undertail coverts.
  8. FWIW, structurally the first bird just seems a bit too chunky for Forster's, and that tail is real short.
  9. Right, the first photo appears to be Surfs, the second Blacks.
  10. I don't have experience with Kelp Gull, so take this FWIW, but other than the rather dark back and dark primaries, what else would suggest that this is a Kelp Gull over a Great Black-backed Gull? The legs are a bit pale for what one would expect on a Kelp, and I don't really think that, particularly from one photo alone, there is anything particularly unreasonable about the mantle or primaries for a ratty GBBG. Obviously though, more photos would be good.
  11. Large, pink-legged Gulls in the pacific NW with varying black on primaries... Two species should stick out to you...
  12. I'm seeing a Pacific in the last three photos
  13. Glaucous-winged Gull or any variety of hybrid x Glaucous-winged.
  14. I don't think this is identifiable, but Palm Warbler is the most reasonable guess IMO.
  15. No way to rule out a hybrid here, obviously.
