  1. Yes, this is a Scott's Oriole. Note the dusky head, distinct wingbars, and streaking on the back. It's a juvenile with that pink fleshy gape.
  2. That's a juvenile Brewer's Blackbird. Cowbirds have stouter bills.
  3. Yeah, Ovenbirds are usually found low in bushes or walking on the ground, but I've seen them in tall trees before. Being found in the understory is a matter of preference rather than an inability.
  4. A juvenile Cooper's Hawk is correct. Sharp-shinned are much more compact.
  5. This looks like a juvenile Song Sparrow to me, with the large bill, reddish appearance, coarse streaks, bold malar stripe, and long tail.
  6. A House Wren is correct. Note the dark brown appearance and medium-length tail.
  7. Maybe a young Chipping with those dark lores.
  8. That appears to be a Lesser Goldfinch. Note the conical bill and black crown.
  9. I like Greater. Extensive barring and upturned, long bill.
  10. Double post. https://forums.whatbird.com/index.php?/topic/11588-bird-i-d-help/&tab=comments#comment-65121
  11. Welcome to Whatbird! That’s a female/young male House Sparrow. Note the buffy appearance, pale eyebrow, and stout bill.
  12. Red-tailed is correct, but it’s not a juvenile. Juveniles have brown striped tails.
  13. Yes, Downy. The small bill, lack of a black shoulder spur, and spotted outer tail feathers are all good ID features.
  14. You got it! Note the blue-tinged wings/tail and spotted underparts and back.
  15. Those are Sanderlings. Note the light gray upperparts and relatively thick, black bill. You can tell Sanderlings apart from most other small waders by their lack of a hind toe. This is what makes Sanderlings such great runners!
  16. These are all Yellow Warblers. The dark "cap" is just a shadow. A Wilson's Warbler would have a shorter bill, less yellow edging on the wings, and a longer dark undertail.
  17. Pied-billed Grebe is correct. Note the stout bill and almost nonexistent tail.
  18. Yes, immature Least Tern with that smudgy eyepatch and yellow legs. I love the composition and low POV of that shot.
  19. Yes, there's some feather on the EAKI's tail. EAPH are just far more compact with daintier bills.
