  1. Wow! Thanks, everyone. My Sibley's Guide is from 2000. 😂
  2. Orlando, Florida. September 14, 2019. I only took this one picture, unfortunately. This has to be a Common Moorhen, right? Red shield. White flank stripe and white tail visible. Red on back of leg. Usually the Coots and Allies are pretty simple. BUT, when I try to enter it in eBird, it's not listed as an option for Orlando. The SIbley's map doesn't show it's rare, but shows it should only be in this part of Florida in winter (so, September wouldn't be right). But, this is a Common Moorhen, right? I don't want to override eBird's generics unless I'm super sure.

  4. I'm from Iowa, and I've ID'd most of the Florida birds from a short trip last October, but...stuck, again. I thought maybe a thrush, but then the bill made me think it was in the Corvid family?

  7. Me, too. I've been going back and forth with the Sibleys and I thought Black-bellied was closest. Thanks!
  8. Clearwater Beach, Florida. October 2018.
  9. Whaaat? Wow. Looked way too big and fat for that. But, you're very obviously right. Going through old photos and for some reason I thought it was a much larger bird. Until now! haha Thanks!
  10. Thanks! I've never seen a Baltimore in my backyard in Iowa, so I'm not much help. It just looked so scruffy to me.
  11. September 4, 2017. Davenport, Iowa. Middle of the day. Thanks!
  12. Awesome! I was focused on the head and breast I didn't even really look at the tail. That's a lifer for me. Thanks!
