  1. It's a scientific paper: a blessing and a curse
  2. I have only lived here for a few months, I haven't seen too many song sparrows this winter. But I haven't had much time to bird in the winter
  3. Thanks, I struggle with sparrows, sandpipers, and hawks....and gulls
  4. 4/23/2020, afternoon, Corpus Christi, TX. Not a great photo, but I want to make sure if this is a species I have a picture of already. I think this is an eastern wood-pewee
  5. 4/23/2020, afternoon, Corpus Christi, TX. This is probably a Song Sparrow, but it looks a lot like a Lincoln's Sparrow. I don't know for sure.
  6. Grasshopper's do have that black-white-black on the head. They also have a very unmistakable song that I didn't hear. Could that be because it was in the afternoon or the time of year?
  7. 4/23/2020 Corpus Christi Texas in the afternoon. I am fairly sure this is a savannah sparrow but there are a couple things that make me question. For one, I did not hear its unmistakable song, it doesn't have the streaks on its breast, and the beak/head junction doesn't look right. It may be a Nelson's Sparrow but I'm not too sure about that either. I've provided three pictures: the first two are of the same bird (one showing a profile, the other the top of the head). The last picture is likely a different bird of the same species but showing its back.
  8. taken today 4/18 in Corpus Christi Texas on a drizzly morning. The best I can come up with in IDing this guy is a female/immature male Indigo Bunting. What do you all think? I did see in the same area a pair of little, pale blue birds fly out of some cattails the other day. This part of Texas is a migration area or them, according to my book. could they be in breeding plumage?
  9. Thanks, I struggled a bit finding the name of this one. Which is surprising because, as you said, it's very distinctive
  10. 4/15/2020 Corpus Christi, TX. This is a Lark Sparrow, right?
  11. This is a brand new species for me. A Golden-fronted Woodpecker
  12. Both pictures taken about a week ago (3/12) in Corpus Christi TX. The first I think is a Western Sandpiper due to the white above its eye, but the elevation of the sun makes seeing the color of its legs hard to tell. The second I think is a Least Sandpiper. I was smaller than the first and you can tell it has green/yellow legs
  13. Juvenile double-crested cormorant? Taken march 12, 2020 in Corpus Christi, TX
  14. It's been a while since I had something to post. Here's a Royal Tern
  15. I was afraid of this. I'll just label it as "American or Fish Crow" for now. Thanks
  16. Picture taken back in 2015 in Melbourne, FL. I can't tell if it is an American or a Fish Crow. I know identifying them based on their calls is easy but I don't remember the sound this one was making =/
  17. This picture was taken on Florida's Space Coast September 2015. At the time I thought it was a Sanderling in breeding plumage. But now as I am looking at its range, Florida seems to be strictly non-breeding. If it is a Sanderling, is it a juvenile? If not, what kind of sandpiper could it be?
