  1. Same bird in both pics. I'm leaning towards Black-throated Green Warbler, but can't rule out a few others.
  2. Should be the same bird in both pics. I'm leaning towards Ruby-crowned Kinglet.
  3. I was fairly certain this was a Great Blue Heron, but after I posted it on FB somone suggested it might be a Green Heron. Maybe it's an immature Great Blue? Note: It doesn't have YELLOW LEGS!
  4. I was checking out the swallows for some time trying to get a decent pic and never noticed the distinctive pointed tail of a barn swallow. Not sure what else it could be besides a Tree.
  5. 1. Northern Mockingbird 2. ??? 3. Tree Swallows?
  6. Getting close to wrapping up all the birding pics from my AT hike last year. These I took with my cell phone. Sent the Canon SX730 home when I got to New Hampshire to offset the added weight of cold weather gear. 1&2. Spruce Grouse 3. Canada Jay
  7. 1. Little Blue Heron 2. Yellow-rumped Warbler (despite the lack of yellow flanks) 3. Yellow-bellied Sapsucker 4. immature White Ibis
  8. If #1 is a Black-throated Blue, then I guess they don't always have the diagnostic white patch on outer edge of wing. At best, this guy has a tiny speck of white.
  9. 1&2. female Common Yellowthroat 3. bill looks a little thick for a warbler. 4. video clip of #3 MVI_0269 mystery warbler,trimmed.mp4
  10. 1. adult and juvenile Black and White Warblers 2. Spots don't look quite bold enough for a Wood Thrush. Does that make it a Hermit?
  11. Thank you! I figured it was going to be a lifer of some sort, but now it has a name.
  12. 1. no clue what this guy is. Looks like some kind of sparrow, but can't find one that has this much yellow on its undersides. 2. pic was actually taken near CT/MA border if that matters. Looks like an American Robin, but the white throat seems out of place.
  13. For comparison, here's the undertail pattern of four Cape Mays that passed through SW PA recently. All were already confirmed Cape Mays on this forum and all appear to have only a dark outer edge of undertail. The OP's Cape May appears to have a more extensive dark undertail. Maybe its tail is squeezed together to hide the light central part of the tail? Or, maybe its a natural variation of first fall Cape Mays?
  14. Ovenbird on the Appalachian Trail in Pennsylvania last June after the climb out of Duncannon shown in the clip. I owe this bird, its cousin thrushes on flute and many other songbirds many thanks for making my journey on trail such a splendid auditory experience. MVI_0175 Ovenbird, trimmed.mp4
