  1. Another consult said, “The head appears to be rather blocky and squared, the bill fairly large in relation to the head, and more importantly; the outer tail feathers appear to be shorter than the central tail feathers, the “graduated” look of Cooper’s Hawk. These are tough, but this one is likely Cooper’s.”. Thank you everyone!
  2. Photo Taken Wednesday, October 5, 2022, in Jim Wells County, South Texas. This one caught a dove in my garden and promptly landed nearby with his catch. I was so glad that I had my phone in hand. Help in identifying this one would be awesome! Happy Birding!
  3. Looks like a Sharp-shinned to me. Happy birding!
  4. Lovely photo. This looks like a young female to me but so far has no real red to her tail and wings. However, that seemingly darker brown (maybe the lighting of the photo) may fool us and this might be a young male. But my thoughts say female. I hope he/she stays nearby where you can watch him/her change color. Happy Birding!
  5. Thank you, Peromyscus - Rob! The dark eye really messed up my choice of Bronzed Cowbird. Happy Birding! Sandie
  6. Happy Birthday!

  7. Jim Wells County, South Texas, 07/31/22 I can’t figure out which bird this is. Any assistance would be appreciated. A cardinal has been feeding it for quite a while. I suspect the parent bird chose the cardinal nest, but I just suppose. The Merlin app came up with the same choices for the type of bird. Can anyone help me figure out this one, please?
  8. Jim Wells County, South Texas, July 23, 2022 Can anyone help me decide which Thrasher this is? olive eyes wing bars
  9. Yep! I think so as well. I had a couple more show up today and they were more easily identifiable. Thank you for the assistance.
  10. Thank you. I made them smaller and it looks like they loaded this time. Any ideas of which bird? thank you, Happy Birding
  11. Thank you for any help. It has a thick beak similar to a cardinal or a Lazuli Bunting, and about the same size. It looks like it has a pair of wing bars. Its underbelly looked to be lighter in color and the head appeared to have an orangish/red tint to it. Again, many thanks for any assistance. Happy Birding!
  12. Thank you for your assistance! Happy Birding!
  13. May 13, 2020 - Jim Wells County, South Texas Photo Sleuth said this was an Orchard Oriole with 95% confidence and 3% it was a Hooded Oriole. I have had many visiting Orioles, but not an Orchard. However, I have had quite a few Hooded Orioles. Can anyone help me with this one? Immature Male Orchard or Hooded Oriole Thank You, and Happy Birding!
  14. Can anyone help me identify this bird? Buda, Texas today. Sorry for the lousy photo. He has taken up residence in the owl house. Thank you!
  15. Can anyone help me identify this little yellow bird, please? Jim Wells County, South Texas today. However, I’ve seen him flitting about in the late afternoon the last few days. Thank you in advance!
  16. Today, Saturday, March 14, in Jim Wells County, South Texas. I thought this was a Common Ground-Dove, but then perhaps a Ruddy Ground-Dove. Your Thoughts would be appreciated. Thank you, and Happy Birding!
  17. Could anyone help with the type of Warbler I have here? The photo was taken today, Wednesday, March 11, in Hays County, Texas. Thank you and Happy Birding!
  18. Jim Wells County, South Texas, today. Can anyone help with identifying this youngster, please? Thank you! Happy Birding to All!
  19. Jim Wells County, South Texas, October 27, 2019. They were not the same bird, but perhaps the same species? Maybe Orange-crowned or Tennessee Warbler or Verdin??? The one on the weed, was just hanging out. Two photos of the other - it was enjoying the Turks Caps. Any assistance would be appreciated.
