  1. I always think that the treeline by my house is closer than it actually is. One time I saw what I thought was a red-tailed hawk perched on one of the branches with its feathers puffed up from the cold, but when I went and got my binoculars it was just a fat mourning dove. But I will say, I got a second opinion before I got my binoculars, and the consensus was that the thing definitely looked hawk sized!

  2. Yeah, I posted in the birds outside North America forum as well, but since gwte is a North American bird too, I was hoping I could get a confirmation from this forum since there’s a little more traffic. If it’s not a gwte though, I guessed wrong, and the North American birds forum isn’t going to be much help lol. Thanks anyway! 

  3. I posted this in the Birds Outside North America forum, but I thought I might post it here too just in case, since I believe this might be a green-winged teal. Let me know if that’s a problem! 

    I saw this bird the other day in a group of eastern spot-billed ducks. It was much smaller, and the coloration and the head shape in addition to the size make me think green-winged teal. Spotted in central Japan. 





  4. Hi, long time listener first time poster for the non-NA bird forum! I saw this duck in central Japan yesterday with a group of eastern spot-billed ducks. This one was the only non-spot-billed in the flock, and it was much smaller and slimmer. My guess is a green-winged teal based on the coloration and how the bill looks in the low-quality photos I managed to get. What do you guys think? 





  5. Hi all, it's been a while! I heard this bird calling today in a suburban area in southern KY. There were about three of them in the treetops. I couldn't get a great look at them, but they looked to be grayish with lighter bellies, smaller than a mockingbird but larger than a titmouse. They were flying from tree to tree and chattering at each other. They could have been a color besides gray, but it was cloudy today so I'm really not sure. Thanks!
