  1. I saw this bird at the pond in Old 4th Ward Park in Atlanta, GA. Is this a type of Flycatcher??
  2. So, I've become somewhat obsessed with the resident Great Blue Heron at the pond in Old 4th Ward Park in Atlanta, GA. He (or she...but I think of it as a he) is there all year, except for a few weeks in late winter. I've been taking pictures of the bird going on 3 years now but I recently compared a picture I took 2 weeks ago with one I took this past October....and, I'm not sure it's the same bird. If it is the same bird, why is the color on the beak different?? Top picture is from 2 weeks ago. Bottom picture is from October 2020 (not sure why that one uploaded sideways??)
  3. Help. I've looked through several bird books I have but I cannot identify this bird. I'm thrown off by the black band that starts on the top of its head down to the bottom of the back of its neck. I couldn't get a clear shot of the front but there is black on the throat as well. Picture taken yesterday 3/24/21 in Atlanta, GA.
  4. You can't really tell from the picture but the bird in my picture has horizontal black and white bars on its tail.
  5. I believe this is a Cooper's Hawk. There was (maybe still is) a pair that I would see together earlier in the year but lately I've just seen the one bird. Any way to discern male or female from this pic? Seen at Brookhaven Park in Atlanta, GA. https://www.dropbox.com/s/fjn539ljs982gmr/20201231_094151.jpg?dl=0
  6. I'm at the pond at the Old Fourth Ward park in Atlanta, GA. There is a Great Blue Heron that is a resident of the park and lots of mallards, turtles & frogs and song birds. The pictures I have attached aren't great. This bird has a brown/rusty neck & breast with white streaks from the bottom of the bill to under the belly. The bill looks to be green and the head is a greenish blue that he/it occasionally forms into a crown.
  7. I saw this Hawk perched on a low tree branch. This was as close as I could get and I was not able to see the tail. I think it's a red-tailed hawk but I'm not 100% certain. Picture taken in Atlanta, GA at the Beltline at Tanyard Creek on 1/23.

  9. I'm going to be traveling to Northern Ireland (Belfast and Portrush) in 3 weeks and I'm looking for recommendations for small field guide books and/or websites that can help me discover the birds common to those areas. Thanks in advance!!
  10. This bird flew onto my aunt's balcony in Atlanta, GA. Unfortunately she did not get a clear photo of the face. The bird is banded. I think it's a pigeon but I'm not certain??
  11. I've seen this bird in my yard lately and initially I thought it must be a Robin...but if it is, it is really funny looking. There is an odd dark spot/patch on the cheek. I couldn't get a good picture of the front of the chest but the chest is spotted rather than fully chestnut. But it definitely has the eyering and beak of a Robin. I'm in Atlanta, GA. I'm linking a folder from Dropbox. Let me know if there are any problems accessing the pictures. Thanks!! https://www.dropbox.com/sh/r1s9v89n7hnemg6/AADNdVdSXJQxgTMEJt7eE5Rna?dl=0
