  1. Hello, Today in central Florida I saw this duck very far out on a big lake. It looked way too big to be a mallard, and the body shape is a big off too. I know the photo is very low quality due to the distance, but do you guys think it is a mallard x Muscovy duck hybrid? Thanks!
  2. Hello, I am going through some old photos from Montana taken last Summer, and I've been trying to ID all the birds I saw. As a Floridian, I am not as familiar with some of these. Let me know if I am correct! 1.Cassin's Finch Female 2.Clay-Colored Sparrow 3.Slate-Colored Fox Sparrow 4.Ruby-Crowned Kinglet? 5.Golden-Crowned Kinglet? 6.Hammond's Flycatcher or Least Flycatcher. 7.Willow Flycatcher 8.Willow Flycatcher 7.Hammond's Flycatcher? 8.Western-Wood Peewee 9.9. This is the most difficult one in my opinion. I am pretty sure it
  3. Sorry for the compressed audio. This audio was actually clipped from a much better recording focusing on a white-eyed vireo, I just noticed this song in the background when listening to the rest of the recording, so I digitally enhanced it. Thanks though, I was 75% sure this was a yellowthroat, as I saw a beautiful male when kayaking. Unrelated but I just realized today is my first anniversary since joining this site!
  4. Hello, When kayaking in central Florida, I noticed this red-tailed hawk with an extra pale belly. I was wondering what subspecies it was. My guess is borealis, since the head is too dark to be Krider's.
  5. Hello, Simple question. I heard this bird singing in central Florida this weekend. It was heard in when kayaking in a creek where I have seen many common yellowthroats before. I tend to get some of the Warbler songs mixed up, so I just wanted to make sure this is a common yellowthroat. Common Yellowthroat.mp3
  6. Hello, Recently I saw this Yellow-Rumped Warbler in Central Florida. However, I am confused on which subspecies it is. The striking yellow dot on top, combined with a grayish back, and a tiny hint of yellow on the throat makes me think its a Myrtle x Audubon's? What do you guys think?
  7. Greetings, I have a difficult one today. For new year's I traveled to Miami and found a lot of parrots. However, Psittacara parrots tend to look really similar... The eBird reviewer counted all of these as correct, but I just wanted to verify If I got these species correct. Starting with easiest to most difficult. 1. Red Masked Parakeet: The almost completely covers the face. 2. White-Eyed Parakeet: Note the distinct eyerings, and complete lack of red on face. You cannot see it here, but they had a red+yellow mark under the wing. 3. Mitred Parak
  8. Hello, a.) Today when at Ponce Inlet Florida, I saw this gull flyover (see the first 2 pictures). Recently, a first winter heerman's gull has been seen around these parts, and I was wondering if this was him. He was flying with 2 ring billed gulls and was around a similar size, but looked way darker, without any streaking. Here is a picture of someone's past eBird checklist which contains the bird for comparison. https://ebird.org/checklist/S76906583 b.) This duck was mixed with a flock of black scoters moving south (See last 2 photos). I'm pretty sure its a female lesser
  9. Hello, Today I saw this extra pale looking red-tailed hawk in Central Florida. Is it a Krider's? The thing that is throwing me off is the belly-band, which kirder's usually lack. It kind of looks like a juvenile borealis too. Sorry for quality, it was taking before sunrise.
  10. Hello, I saw this Warbler at Cape Canaveral, Florida. At first I thought this was a plain-old yellow-throated Warbler, but someone said it may be the rare subspecies, Setophaga dominica albilora. What do you guys think? The lores look pretty white to me (but I see a faint faint bit of yellow near the beak), but I not sure I want to submit it to eBird and iNaturalist before I run it through here. Thanks!
  11. Thanks for the help everyone. It seems my second photo that I posted in order to help everyone just seemed to confuse people oops! I just posted it on eBird as sulid sp. So hopefully an eBird reviewer can help clear things up. I'm still leaning towards gannet since I cannot see that mask, but I may be mistaken.
  12. I took this picture of an immature gannet today as well, so I am assuming that that bird is just an immature gannet. The distance might have made it seem smaller than what it was.
  13. Hello, After reviewing my photos from my seawatch at Cape Canaveral in Florida today, I found this bird. I remember when I first saw it, it looked smaller than a northern gannet, and was oddly heading out to sea, unlike all the gannets who were heading south. Its flight pattern seemed to be a bit different too. The wings match a masked booby (black sleeves), and so does the tail, but I don't see the mask. Also, the head is not yellow like a gannet, but that might just be the quality of the photo.
  14. Hello, Today I saw these ducks flying over the ocean in Florida. I cannot tell if they are female blacks, female Surfs, or nonbreeding ruddy ducks. I assume blacks, but they look a bit different than the other black scoters I saw, plus they were heading south while the blacks were heading north. I added a second photo of black scoters I took just to compare them too.
