  1. That is an American Avocet in non-breeding (winter) plumage
  2. Florida is it's own separate beast when it comes to things like this. I believe the state bird record committee has to determine what species they are going to except and the criteria. Surely the Muscovies there are from domestics long ago... but have been breeding there so long they are now "established" and considered a wild domestic, if you will. They are certainly not like the truly wild Muscovy from Mexico/Central America. Same is true for the other exotics that are excepted in FLA... Black-hooded Parakeet, Common Mynas and the like. I would bet in the next few years other species are add
  3. One sees a lot of things over 35 years of birding and 10 years banding. Carolina Wrens will nest in anything... doesn't even need to be a nest box. old pots and even old boots have been used. However, it is perfectly fine there... they are very hardy birds.

  5. It is a Carolina Wren.... they are known to roost like that. Nothing is wrong with it.
  6. Don't think I can take it any further than Boat-billed FC or Great Kiskadee from this angle/pic alone.
  7. Pass on the first. Others are Red-breasted Mergansers and White-winged Scoter
  8. Yes... agree with Great Egret, Herring Gull and all Tern IDs
  9. This bird appears to be a juvenile bird..feathering on the face as well as a gape. And if I had to guess I'd say Great crested.
  10. All your IDs are correct... except 2b might be a Greater IMO(head looks rounded and bill wide).
  11. No need for other pics... it is clearly a Song Sparrow.
  12. Not sure... but is there a "Welcome back" due here?
  13. All geese look good for Canada to me. The ducks in question look like Black Ducks to me..
  14. Seconded Remember Red-shouldereds in Florida are much lighter...
  15. Hard to hear.... but what I can make out sounds like a Pileated Woodpecker.
