  1. Yes to black bill and eye stripe can be much more subdued in female. Also a much more typical bird up in Vermont.
  2. Looks much better for a female Blue-winged to me.
  3. I didn't even look at the third pic... thought they were all the same bird. But yes I agree with Savannah for that one.
  4. You only have a certain amount of time to go back to your post and 'edit" it. I wanted to add my third post into my second post, but the edit clock beat me to it. And was supposed to say HATE the edit time limit.
  5. Head the edit time limit... Anyway. It may not be singing as it is still migrating through and/or is not on territory.
  6. Yes to the head stripes... it is a definite Grasshopper Sparrow.
  7. This is better than a Savannah.... Grasshopper Sparrow there.
  8. The cap looks grayish... for s Catbird, I would think it should be darker since those feathers have pigment. Plus the under wing pattern looks like a mockingbird(just reversed). @The Bird Nuts I agree it is not a Phoebe. As far as a crest goes.. are you talking about the last pic? I am not sure that is a crest or just some windblown or out of place feathers. Another thing is...in the second pic, it looks like a yellowish eye.
  9. I couldn't tell much from the first pics... but these new ones, especially the one with wings open... have me thinking leucistic Northern Mockingbird.
  10. @Jefferson Shank Just the name of the game this time of year... They are year round birds and are not migrating back from Central/South America so they can start early and early nesting is all it is... some birds will have 2 or even 3 clutches (and sometimes even more) if they can. It pays to get started early, just in case something happens and the nest fails. If they are successful... then they have time for the next nest/clutch and so on.That is the goal to keep the species numbers up. If they lose a nest/clutch with enough time left in the season, they will usually attempt a new one as well.
  11. Just realized this was from 1 1/2 years ago...
  12. Looks good for and I agree with Caspian Gull... Regionally, the only other real option in June is Black-headed(which it certainly is not)
  13. I think immature Bateleur here...just holding head feathers flat..
  14. Looks like a 3rd winter Yellow-legged to me.
  15. Agreed.... nice comparisons there.
  16. Red-tailed for me too. Side note: I've seen plenty of Osprey on the ground(usually feeding but not always.)
  17. I was taking it as many tree-tree jaunts/flights... I've seen them move between 2 or 3... but not more than that. Doesn't mean it does not happen of course. And I guess the OP could mean chasing, when it was "chasing" but really basically hopping from one tree to another... who knows.
  18. Sorry, I missed the tree-tree part... a gull will not be landing in a tree at all. Green Herons would probably not be moving tree-tree-tree also. Rock Dove seems a good choice.
  19. I am gonna suggest a Green Heron... bright orange legs and feet. They Greenish color sometimes can look gray in the lighting. https://identify.whatbird.com/obj/32/identification/Green_Heron.aspx
