  1. West Tenn this am. Believe this to be a Blackburnian but appears drab. Lighting ? Incomplete molt into breeding plumage ? Thanks
  2. Nest photographed this a.m. West Tennessee. unique in that it incorporates honey locust needles. Quite the fortress. Is this use of materials a characteristic that is species specific? Thanks.
  3. Confirmed as a Ringed Teal. An escapee or dumped at large urban lake.
  4. Small duck. West Tennessee yesterday. Posted for a friend.
  5. West Tennessee yesterday. Although not an ID inquiry, interested in “growth” above eye, symmetrical bilaterally. Ticks ? Parasite ?Thanks.
  6. West Tennessee this am. No experience with this species, but understand there are East and West subspecies. Both present here, or only East subspecies ? No vocals. Thanks
  7. West Tennessee this am. Large number of Yellowlegs in proximity, but dark legs and white eyebrow appear distinct. No vocals. Thanks.
  8. West Tennessee this am. Mixed flock of sparrows including Song and Savannah. No vocals Stronger facial pattern and auricular patch than I am accustomed to seeing on local Savannahs.
  9. Confusing my reds and raspberries ! Thanks to all.
  10. West Tennessee yesterday. One gull appears larger than others. Posture ? Alternate species ? Thanks.
  11. Yesterday, west Tennessee. Sequence ( 1st image ) ? 1. Ross’s 2. Ross’s 3. Juvenile Blue Morph Snow 4. Snow Thanks.
  12. West Tennessee this am. No vocals. Thanks.
  13. Thanks. Interesting in that this RSHA, prior to this recent snow/freeze, has shown very little interest in bird prey, and has been consuming rodents and earthworms. The feeder birds have ignored him/her when present, unlike their behavior when the COHA is around, when they vanish for an extended interval. Apparently the freeze has necessitated a change in diet. I appreciate the insights.
  14. Immature Cooper’s with transitional tail plumage ? West Tennessee this am. Robin the prey. Thanks
  15. West Tennessee yesterday. RSHA or RTHA ? Adult vs Immature ? The rear view always a challenge for me. ID and hints re: this backside perspective welcome. Thanks.
