  1. agree with purple finch.. And the house finch near me (Baltimore Co MD) have a brownish cap . We have had many purple finch at our feeders the past week or two..then they seem to leave and the house finch come
  2. agree with downy...shorter beak. (unless just the angle) and spots on tail. And in my opinion...the Downy has a more pronounced forehead
  3. and just to confuse matters....I would have said crow - the bird seems a bit "smooth" to be a raven though i have not seen an eastern one...only out west. Also the crows in MD seem to fly in flocks - murders ...if that helps while the ravens i was in the west were usually in pairs if not singly but as Millipede said - bet wait for others
  4. Edit again...not paying close enough attention on photo with three middle sparrow - chipping left sparrow - white throated....that yellow touch right sparrow.....will leave it to others
  5. that was my impression as well..from the hook on the beak to the split tail...looks like some i saw in Florida...and some pictures were like these - Magnificent Frigatebird
  6. smiling....now I see the little blue.....and the difference between the tri-colored heron earlier
  7. got it thanks...was put off by the beak and leg color
  8. could this be a non-breeding plumage of a little blue....beak and legs are darker than I would expect for Tri-colored
  9. and I have another question...I am not disputing the ID...far from it. But how does one determine this..what field marks should I look for
  10. beat me but a more probable ID anyway...i was going to say Tundra because in the first and second photo....I though I saw a patch of yellow rigth in front of the eye but the photo was enlarged and it may have been the sun...but Trunda
  11. This is a good one....picture great but i cannot ID it.....Looked at all three (prairie, peregrine and gryfalcon) to me closed to dark morph gryfalcon but while have been spotted in NJ it is considerably of normal range...Head lacked "sideburns" of peregrine or prarie I will pass this one on
