  1. Perhaps an Eastern Phoebe (EAPH)with a round,dark-capped head, white throat, and black bill.
  2. The pale translucent crescent across the outer primaries suggests a Red-shouldered Hawk. Wait for the experts.
  3. Lots of Yellow Warblers and Common Yellowthroats along the hiking trail at Crystal Cresent Provincial Park in Nova Scotia this morning. I am unsure of these two warblers and could use some help. I believe the photos are of the same two birds but can't be sure. Thanks for taking a look.
  4. Thanks, Peromyscus. I'll wait and see if anyone can pin down the first bird before I submit my list for today.
  5. Sea watching from a point this morning in Nova Scotia. A great morning once the fog moved off with no wind and calm seas. Many Shearwaters flew low to the water, and I managed a couple of photos of smaller birds that overtook and passed the Shearwaters. They both had rapid wingbeats. The first bird may be a Murre of some kind or a Razorbill and the second an Atlantic Puffin. Can you folks confirm or suggest something else? Thanks (oh, The photos have been cropped but not altered. )
  6. Please disregard my guess but not my welcome. Tree Swallows don't have white tails.
  7. Perhaps a Tree Swallow. They like to sit on cables and their song is kind of tinkling. Welcome to the WhatBird community.
  8. Might be a Say's Phoebe as per Peromyscus as I think there is visible rufous showing under the tail in the 4th picture.
  9. The first bird is a Lark Sparrow distinguished by its unique bold facial pattern. The second bird may be a House Wren with its plain brown crown, thin slightly curved bill, and lack of discernible eyebrow. The third bird looks to be a flycatcher but I'm not confident, perhaps a Willow. (just a stab so wait for the experts)
  10. Thanks, @Avery I was leaning adult (eastern) as well and will report as such.
  11. Is this an Ipswich Savannah Sparrow? Nova Scotia this Morning. Thanks for having a look.
  12. I have just one blurry picture of this woodpecker in Nova Scotia this morning. Looked to be about the size of a Hairy Woodpecker. My guess is a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker but I am unsure. Thanks
  13. I agree with your ID. Young Broad-winged Hawk. Markers are pale underparts with tear-shaped brown spots-- short, yellow feet--upper parts brown with white flecking--indistinct mustache--wingtips just short of the tail tip. I could be full of malarkey, so wait for an expert.
  14. 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.
  15. Also, skinny legs and square-tip tail. I agree with @Snake Fingers. Sharp-shinned Hawk.
  16. Rusty cap, gray underparts, dark eyeline through the eye, and hangin' out on a lawn. I'd say, Chipping Sparrow.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. Lincoln's. The fine streaking and yellow wash on the throat do it for me.
  20. Looks like a female Long-tailed Duck.
  21. my favorite tip is that the split white eye-ring is incomplete at the top and bottom of the eye.
