  1. Thank you both for the information - these are a cute bird but not to common in my area so had trouble pinpointing. I appreciate the input and answer! Do I need to do any closeout?
  2. Thanks - a second confirmation is always welcome. When it gets to these small birds - it does get difficult because of minute similarities. I appreciate the help.
  3. Based on the details and your notes - I totally AGREE with the Great Crested! You have been very helpful - thanks!
  4. Okay - those are the little things I miss ...I just don't see the yellow and It doesn't have brown tail feathers on my bird that are prominent on the Great Crested - could it be the Acadian Flycatcher. the other person mentioned. Those do enter my area in Iowa. https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Acadian_Flycatcher/id
  5. Thank You for the ID on the Easter Pewee - that has me excited because not easy to spot one of these in our area except for migrations. I am still leaning my first image is a Least Flycatcher (I only have the two photos and none showing belly). If you compare my image to the one in this link you might think they were brothers! https://www.audubon.org/field-guide/bird/least-flycatcher#photo4
  6. Thank you - it is either the Acadian but think when looking at my image and then your hint put me onto a Least Flycatcher (see link below) - I vale your opinion between the two. The Least would be migrating .. the Acadian all year. https://www.audubon.org/field-guide/bird/least-flycatcher#photo4
  7. No I don't think it is a Pewee - but funny the next bird (see attached) I believe is one - wasn't sure if a Tufted titmouse. or Pewee. The bird in question - I'm sure on my exposure has a deep olive- gray colors and stronger wing band marking.
  8. Another small bird - (PHOTO ATTACHED) found May 23rd, 2019 near Waterloo Iowa. At first I thought a female goldfinch but don't really see any hints of yellow. Sorry could not get its underside. The head and shoulders is what threw me. Thanks for any help!
  9. I'll accept. all above - it just appeared much smaller than the normal females I see - so I threw the additional question out. Redwings are aplenty here. Please close as I agree.
  10. Could be but rather small only 5 inch - unless a juve! If you think so I will mark agreed next time
  11. Found - Waterloo Iowa, May 22, 2019 Photo attached Brown striped -
