  1. This little guy was seen in NW Missouri last Wednesday. Is it a Swamp Sparrow?
  2. Photographed in Council Bluffs Iowa in September 2021. Is this tiny gull, dwarfed by the nearby Ring-billed Gulls, a Bonaparte's Gull?
  3. Pic was taken in Spring in central California. I assume it was a wren. I only got two pics, and this is by far the better one. I'm in Nebraska, so I'm not familiar with those western birds.
  4. Forgive me if I've posted these pics before--my memory isn't great. The photos were taken in NW Missouri in October 2020. Is this a Henslow's Sparrow?
  5. Image taken in eastern Nebraska in August. I know this is a male wood duck. But is it an immature male molting into it's adult feathers? Or is it an adult male in its post breeding cycle eclipse plumage?
  6. More specifically, what is the large gull towering over the Forster's? Terns? Pic was taken several years ago in Augist in western Iowa.
  7. I assume it's a sandpiper. But which one? Shots are several years old, taken in August in western Iowa.
  8. They were seen in western Iowa in September 2017. I'm leaning toward some kind of flycatcher. But can you really determine Alder, Acadian, etc. at this stage? I think Eastern Wood Peewee is the most prevalent in this area. At least that's what I see the most.
  9. Seen in May 2020 in western Iowa. There were Barn, Cliff, and Tree swallows all flying in the area at the time.
  10. Pic was taken in September 2020 in eastern Iowa. I think this is a female (Myrtle) Yellow-rumped Warbler. I just needed a 2nd opinion.
  11. Seen at DeSoto wildlife reserve waaay back in April 2021. Are these Least Sandpipers?
  12. Never mind. They both are. But is it a juvenile or non-breeding adult?
  13. Thanks blackburnian. Then what's this one? I've been calling it it a Semi-palmated. Same location, but in September 2015.
  14. Seen at DeSoto wildlife reserve waaay back in April 2021. There were sandpipers around, butt, he was the only plover that was there.
  15. Photographed in Council Bluffs, Iowa, way back in November 2019. Maybe a domestic duck and Crested Duck hybrid? Intergrade?
  16. This bird was photographed in NW missouri last week. Is it an adult female or an immature male?
