    Boat-billed Flycatcher?

    Meh, I'm going back. Boat-billed.

    House or Purple Finch?

    Yeah, agreed on all purple

    Boat-billed Flycatcher?

    I don't know, personally, I can't see this as a Boat-billed. I've seen plenty of Kiskadees that when it flies up you think the bill is huge, but it's really not when compared to boat-billed. It is called boat-billed flycatcher for a reason. Kiskadee seems fine to me here. I might look back in a few hours and see if my mind has changed...

    That would make much more sense timing wise, but I really can't see this bird as one. Unless the picture is altered to the point where the breast bands are invisible, and if that's the case, then this bird is unidentifiable.
  6. Confirmed on all. I don't have a lot of experience with the yellow-bellied kingbirds, but I think it looks good for Couch's.

    Possible Hoary Redpoll in S VT

    Sorry! This is a ways off for a Hoary, pretty far into the Common side of things actually, so I think it's a pretty safe bet genetically. Tons of thick flank streaking, undertail streaking, big bill, and overall 'relatively' dark, and least for a Hoary. I understand the struggle, Hoary is one of the last 'easy' birds I need to pin down for my Ontario list before it starts getting really hard. It's interesting about the genetics as well, as there is several very distinct subspecies of each of Hoary and Common as well, just to make things even worse genetically speaking. This bird is a flammea, the 'intermediate' form of Common that's close to the exilipes form of Hoary.

    I think I'd agree with a Plover here, despite that not really making sense time of year wise. And you really don't have any options after that, just one, which is American Golden.

    Northern Goshawk?

    Red-tailed Hawk. Structurally Goshawk's are slimmer (despite being the chunkiest accipter), and the back colouration would be more bluish, with horizontal barring in an adult, and much streakier on the whole front on a juvenile.
  10. Not sure on the passers, I feel like I should know them but to be honest I haven't heard any summer/spring birds for a few months now...
  11. I think I can pick out a Tennessee Warbler in the first one, not sure I can hear the second one, although I can maybe see it on the sonogram. Not sure on that one. The third might actually be a Red-winged Blackbird call, but I don't know if that's what you're referring too. Last reminds me of Yellow, but that doesn't seem right for the top of a canopy, maybe a variation of Tennessee.

    Gull Id

    This is a first or second cycle Herring, I'd lean second. Bill and body structure of Ring-bills is smaller and thinner, and overall much less bulky and heavy. Ring-bills have pink legs as first cycles, but this bird is much dirtier then any first cycle Ring-billed would be, and again the structure is different.

    Help ID-ing a Duck?

    Yes, American Wigeon.
  14. egosnell2002

    What is this

    Yep, Black-bellied Whistling-ducks.

    Just a dark Herring Gull?

    Yeah that's true, wasn't really sure what could be said about mine, since the pics are so bad. I was hoping it was a SB, but alas
