  1. Thank a lot for your comments. They help a lot. One more
  2. here are a couple of extra pictures
  3. Rufous? Taken today near Houston Thanks in advance
  4. Hard to tell with these poor pictures but It is worth a shot. Taken today near Houston, TX Thanks in advance
  5. I have been playing with BirdNet app to learn how to recognize songs and calls, and for the most part it makes a decent job. Obviously, it is highly dependent on the quality of the recording and it handles some groups of birds better than others, but it is much better than any others that I've tried. This morning it gave me an "almost certain" and "highly likely" for an Alder and yellow-bellied flycatchers respectively in two different recordings. I would like to get confirmation so I learn how much to trust the app when it comes to flycatchers. Thanks in advance. Recorded near Houston this morning YEFLrecording_260.wav Alderrecording_252.wav

  8. who's this fellow? picture taken this morning near Houston, TX Thanks in advance
  9. the wing bars seem quite faint and the bill looks curved to me so I want to make sure that I am not missing a hooded here. Thanks in advance
  10. Some features just don't look right, perhaps because is quite worn out. I would like your comments Taken last week near Galveston, TX Thanks in advance
  11. LEt's see how many did I get right Pictures taken yesterday near Galveston, southeast TX 1. Western Sandpiper 2. Western Sandpiper 3. Semipalmated Sandpiper? 4. Western Sandpiper 5. Semipalmated Sandpiper
  12. My bad, this was taking today near Houston
  13. Quite confused about this one. Perhaps a semipalmated? it is just seems too big when one takes into account the size if the phalarope in the back. Anyway, any help will be appreciated. thanks in advance
  14. I forgot to mentioned that the picture was taken this morning near Houston, TX
  15. I need help with this oriole. the picture is awful and they have me very confused https://www.amazon.com/photos/shared/TStoMxatSviK4ZhPvSfxYw.NWtHwy81V7WUnPjHU8B7T6 thanks in advance
  16. I took that picture yesterday in Galveston, TX. I initially thought it was a Herring but that head looks way too white to me and I don't see enough contrast between the mantle and the underparts to call it a lesser black-backed (bill color does not seems quite right either). Always a difficult group for me and I would love to hear more opinions. thanks in advance
  17. is this a juvenile white-fronted? It does not fit any profile in my guide and I would appreciate any help thanks in advance
  18. I believe the bird on the far right could be a possible Iceland (thayer's) immature, but I need confirmation Taken saturday near Houston thanks in advance
  19. taken today near Houston Thanks in advance
  20. I would love to hear opinions on the bird seen on the far left. The sunlight is complicating things and I want to make sure that I am not missing anything Pictures taken on Thursday in Fort Bend County, TX, near Houston. Thanks in advance
  21. Couldn't get better pictures. My guess is Great Horned Owl. Taken this morning near Houston thanks in advance
  22. Very pale individual, I tried all possible marks but i would love to hear from more experienced birders. Taken yesterday in Houston, where we mostly get eastern but western can be found regularly. Same individual thanks in advance
  23. who's this little fellow accompanying these Northern Shovelers? taken this morning near Houston, TX Thanks in advance
  24. Based on location (Houston, TX) and the grayer aspect of the crown and auricular i think this is a black-chinned. Agree or disagree? Any comments will be appreciated. Taken this morning. Thanks in advance
  25. This one is confusing me although I am probably overthinking it. It doesn't;t have the whitish throat of indigos but it has a brown and white two-tone body color. It almost fits lazuli but this picture has been taken this morning near Houston so we are a bit out or range. comments? Thanks in advance
