  2. I took this picture today in norther Illinois, by water. Is this a young bird or female of some type? Karen
  3. Here is another shot, don't know if this helps or not.
  4. I took this picture yesterday in northern Illinois, in a woody area by water, in the morning. Is it a Least Flycatcher? Thanks in Advance Karen
  5. I took this picture in Illinois yesterday in a woody area next to water. It was in the morning. Is this an American Tree Sparrow or a different sparrow? Thanks in advance. Karen
  6. Is this a House Sparrow with 2 young? They were around a feeder and she would feed them seeds. This was taken in southeast Wisconsin on 6/10 at about 5pm. Thanks in advance Karen
  7. Going through some old pictures and found this one of a small yellow bird. It was taken last July in Southeast Wisconsin in a field. Is it warbler of some type? Karen
  8. I was listening to this bird last night. He/she was siting at the top of a tree and was backlite so I could not get a picture of him. He was about the size of a Robin, Multi-purpose bill about the size of its head, brownish, with white chest with brown streaks. At least as best as I could tell. He was singing various songs, I was able to record this one between the dog making noise. Can someone determine the bird that produced it? Thanks in Advance Karen Bird tonight song.m4a
  9. A friend of mine took this picture of a Goldfinch and asked for help on what maybe wrong with his bill. His upper bill has a bump on it and seems a bit longer than normal and the bottom seems to have a growth. Does anyone know what causes this, injury or infection, and is it contagious for other birds? Thanks in advance, Karen
  10. In the past I had identified all my little red birds as House Finches, but yesterday someone identified one of my pictures as a purple finch variant. So I've gone back to look and see if I need to change any of my pictures to Purple Finches. Not sure I know them very well but I do have a question on one. The first picture I believe is a Purple Finch and the 2nd a House Finch. The 3rd I think is a House Finch, bill and markings under the wing, but with red down his back, a little orange in his head and red rump I'm not sure. All pictures were taken yesterday in Southwest Wisconsin. Thanks in advance, Karen
  11. I took this picture today in Southwest Wisconsin. The orange is throwing me on what type of bird this is. I assume an immature bird but not sure which one. Thanks in advance Karen
  12. Thanks, I read so many different things on this but none said for how long. I'll take them down tomorrow and clean them all out.
  13. I was taking pictures of birds this morning in southwest Wisconsin and came across this goldfinch. Does it have conjunctivitis? It was only in this bird that I could see that had it and only its left eye. These were birds at a feeder, is there anything I should be doing to stop it from spreading? Karen
  14. This hawk is hanging around a field by our house in Wisconsin. Is it an immature one? Thanks in Advance, Karen
  15. My title was not very clear. I was questioning if this was a sparrow or the female of another type of bird that does not look like its male. example the female Red-winged blackbird or female Rose-breasted Grosbeak. I know there are others too.
  16. I took this photo early June last year in Wisconsin. Is it a Warbler? Thanks in Advance Karen
  17. I took this picture of a little grey bird in Wisconsin at the end of May last year. I though it might be a dark-eyed Junco but the beak is wrong. Thanks in advance Karen
  18. Picture was taken in Wisconsin last the beginning of June last year. Bird was taken in a field. Thanks in Advance Karen
  19. This is a picture of a blackish bird I took in Wisconsin last May. I'm guessing that it is an immature bird but not sure which one. thanks in advance, Karen
  20. I took a picture of this bird at the end of April in 2020 in Wisconsin. Also around that day were White-throated Sparrow and Red-Winged Blackbirds. I'm not sure if it is one of those femailes or possibly a young female or a whole different bird. They are not the best shots but hopefully are enough. Thanks in Advance Karen
  21. I think this is a White Throated Sparrow, but want to confirm. I took the picture last April in Wisconsin. Thanks in advance Karen
