  1. Pine Warbler. Markers- Contrasting yellow/green front and gray/white rear- relatively large bill- tail appears notched- diffused streaking on the upper breast. Only a guess to open the bidding.
  2. Also, skinny legs and square-tip tail. I agree with @Snake Fingers. Sharp-shinned Hawk.
  3. Rusty cap, gray underparts, dark eyeline through the eye, and hangin' out on a lawn. I'd say, Chipping Sparrow.
  4. White vent, dark undertail, maybe an eyering in photo #1. Could be a Nashville but the fine streaks on the throat seem wrong. Just a guess.
  5. The nictitating eyelid in the first photo doesn't look fully closed, perhaps allowing in a little more reflective light resulting in a clearer eye image. Just a guess.
  6. Lincoln's. The fine streaking and yellow wash on the throat do it for me.
  7. Looks like a female Long-tailed Duck.
  8. my favorite tip is that the split white eye-ring is incomplete at the top and bottom of the eye.
  9. The sloping forehead and the white patches on the wings would suggest a Common Goldeneye. Wait for an expert.
  10. Kinda looks like a flycatcher to me. Maybe an Eastern Phoebe? (in my opinion) I am not an expert.
  11. Looks like a Loggerhead to me with the big head, large bill, and lack of any fine barring on the chest. I am not an expert.
  12. Thanks for your help. As Colton V pointed out, the Junco is most likely a female Slate-colored. It's just that I see many Juncos all year long and this one being so brown just stood out.
  13. On the Salt Marsh Trail in Halifax, Nova Scotia this morning. Could be a female Red-winged Blackbird but I thought I should ask you folks to have a look. Also I saw a very brown Dark-eyed Junco that stood out from the others. Thanks
  14. Thanks IKLland. Since I posted, I looked at last weeks' ebird reports for the Salt Marsh Trail hotspot where I took these photos and there were two Long-billed Dowitchers confirmed at the same spot on Dec.21st. Since there hasn't been a Short-billed in oner a month, I think they are probably continuing birds.
  15. Blurry pictures taken at sunset this evening in Nova Scotia at a tidal marsh. Very sketchy yellow light. Long or Short-billed would be a new bird for me. Thanks for looking.
  16. Thanks folks. It's causing quite a stir. Posting photos is so important because, You never know!!!
  17. This morning in Nova Scotia. Most likely Hudsonian but I have no experience with this bird. Thanks
  18. I see lots of both here in Nova scotia often together and size difference is a good field marker with the GRCO being larger than the DCCO. Even without comparison that white throat and stout bill would be enough for me to ID this bird as a Great Cormorant. The rarity of GRCOs in Alabama has me doubting myself. I defer to the experts
  19. I wouldn't expect to see a woodpecker on a roof, but a male Williamson's Sapsucker has a mostly black back and white stripes on it's face.
  20. My guesses : Sabine's Gull, Common Tern, Sanderlings, Piping Plover, Black Bellied Plover.
  21. Today in Nova Scotia. Prairie Warbler would be a new bird for me so I would like confirmation before reporting. Thanks so much.
  22. I think it looks kinda like a Wood Duck? Although I can't discern a crest.
  23. I think you might have misunderstood blackburnian's response.
