  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!

    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. 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!

    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?

  5. 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!

    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!
