  1. 1. Looks like a House Finch, I think... 2. Wandering Tattler 3,4. Amakihi 5. I think so
  2. Really, really weird looking. Doesn't really strike me as an Acadian structurally, and it doesn't seem very green either. I was thinking least but the primary projection seems too long. I guess it could be an Acadian. Anyone else?
  3. 1. Warbling Vireo 2. Probably Eastern Whip-poor-will, but hard to rule out the (much) rarer Chuck-will's-widow without good tail photos or a side profile.
  4. Tough, but I'd say Long-billed. Proportions seem good good on the first, and the white edged scapulars on the second.
  5. Definitely Dickcissel. It's even saying its name (dick-dick-ciss-ciss-ciss)!
  6. It's a tough call, but I think mostly Long-billed. There's a couple of birds that look like possible Short-bills, but I wouldn't call it from that.
  7. These are definitely Red-tailed Hawks. The red might not be super bright from some angles, and I'm pretty sure that birds hatched last year could still have barring in the tail a little bit. EDIT: If you look close at the second last photo, you can see a little sliver of the upper tail, and it looks pretty red, and the undertail is clean. I'd say it's probably older.
  8. Correct, 9 Ruddys at the back, 6 Redhead (3 males 3 females) and 2 Ring-necks in front.
  9. Yep, Blue-winged. Green-winged only has green in the secondaries, whereas Blue-winged is blue on the coverts, like in this picture.
  10. Hybrid meaning Mallard x something, in this case, it looks like Mottled x Mallard, and I'd say the same for the other bird because of the tail feathers. It's getting harder and harder to find a pure Mottled!
  11. Typo error, that was supposed to be "NOT 100% sure on the first one", changes the meaning a little!
  12. This is a male (yellow-shafted) Northern Flicker. There is a green tab at the top of the page that has advice on how to deal with injured birds. The fact that it was unable to fly means it either has a brain and very likely wing injury. It could also be that it's lost its flight feathers and can't fly. Either way, leaving it outside would be leaving it for dead I think. Their main food source in the wild (from what I've observed) is actually ants and beetles. I'm not sure if it will eat the seeds you've provided, but maybe. It's obviously incredibly stressed, and you should keep it in a dark space with ventilation, and contact your local animal rescue shelter ASAP. Either he'll just need time to regrow feathers, or it's (likely) much more serious, and there might not be much hope for this poor little guy. Keep your cats indoors, a study in 2013 found that outdoor cats kill between 1.4 and 3.7 BILLION individual birds each year in the US alone! Even if it's not your cat, maybe talk to your neighbours.
  13. Agreed, but 100% sure on the first one. I was thinking Warbling Vireo for #2
  14. Actually, this is a juvenile Eastern Towhee! Cowbird bills are more conical, and the white outer tail feathers is a Towhee thing.
  15. I think I'd lean Scarlet with this bill, but it's tough since I haven't seen summer for nearly a year, and scarlet for about half a year...
  16. Yeah, I think the head size is being affected by the angle. Bald for me.
  17. How come? The yellow extends high up on the breast, and the grey extending down is quite light, whereas on Cassin's it should be darker.
  18. Yeah, I don't think Brewer's would ever show this much rust, especially on the undertail coverts.
