  1. I'd go with Cooper's too, due to the slope of the forehead lining up with the angle of the beak, and the "fierce" look it has.

    Bird ID

    Agree with Yellow-rumped, for the same reasons meghann stated.

    Hawk ID

    Agree with Red-shouldered Hawk. Nice shot!!
  4. Welcome to Whatbird!! I agree, Yellow-rumped Warbler.
  5. Agree with House Finch. I get some with this color variation at my feeders almost every year.

    LOL forum topic

    I would think maybe Moronus maximus!
  8. Welcome to Whatbird!! I agree with male Anna's. We have them here (Sacramento) year round and only have Black-chinned in the summer. A Black-chinned should have a longer, slightly curved bill, and the gorget is better for an Anna's as well.

    ID this ball?

    I agree with American Pipit, especially after seeing the other photos. I was shooting from the hip with Yellow-rumped as my 1st impression.

    ID this ball?

    First impression is Yellow-rumped Warbler, Myrtle variety. The white throat and streaking look right.

    Fall Migration 2018

    Very true. When I lived in N Alabama as a kid, Robins were a sign of Spring. After we moved to Fla they were a Winter bird, being there in large flocks till Spring. I think now they tend to winter farther north, as many species are doing.
