  1. Well thanks for letting me know it wasn't posted! I'm thinking juvenile goldfinch from the size/coloration/wings, but I don't know juvenile birds well enough to tell for sure.
  2. Sure thing, sorry about that. How┬┤s this?
  3. Juvenile goldfinch? Seen yesterday evening in southern KY parking garage. I did not see any parents but I assume they were nearby.
  4. Thank you! They were both odd angles, so I wanted to double check ?
  5. I think that these pics are an eastern kingbird and a purple martin respectively, but I would like someone to confirm. Central KY. Thanks!
  6. Could it have been a Blackburnian warbler? Possibly a female or juvenile - I thought I saw a dark gray mask and some light orange feathers on its chest.
  7. Is this a cedar waxwing? I didn't think it looked like one originally, but I didn't get a great look. ID might not be possible from this pic but any help is appreciated ? Central KY on Thursday. I think it had a longer beak and some black around the head and face - my first thought was a nuthatch or a Blackburnian warbler, but this pic doesn't look great for either. Help!
  8. Ah, I thought it didn't look blue enough. Thanks!
  9. Seen in central KY last week. I'm not sure about PROW - it seems a little dull - but that's my guess.
  10. So if I have everything straight, then 1/2 is spotted, 3 is a least, 4 is pectoral, and 6 is spotted. Is 5 a Baird's? That's the one I'm still unclear on. I keep going back and forth between photos of Baird's and Least trying to figure it out, but they both look good! I don't have an eye for sandpipers yet.
  11. How cute! That makes sense, there was an adult in the next tree over keeping an eye on it. Thanks!
  12. Seen in central KY today. Hopping around in the bushes, chipping, and watching me. I thought it was just a chipping sparrow or song sparrow, but the odd posture and the wing bars threw me off. Is it just a sparrow that's hunched over?
  13. Awesome! That's a lifer for me! Thank you!
  14. Saw this fella today at a KY fish hatchery. Is it a juvenile bald eagle? There have been adults and juveniles seen in the area over the past couple weeks.
  15. It was bobbing its head, but I didn't notice anything about the tail. Is that a good way of identifying them?
  16. Thank you!! I was surprised it let me get that close, but it was definitely keeping an eye on me!
  17. Here's a different view for 4. This one flew away pretty quickly, so these two pics were the best ones I could get.
  18. All pics taken today in KY at a fish hatchery. Are these all the same species? I don't know much of anything about sandpipers, so I'm not even going to try to guess what they might be. Pics 1 and 2 are the same bird, but the rest were all different individuals. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.
  19. Thanks! I thought so, but the picture was so bad that I needed a confirmation ? much appreciated!
  20. Seen today at a fish hatchery in Kentucky. My guess is a belted kingfisher, but obviously the pictures aren't great.
  21. It was in a suburb across the road from extensive farmland. I've seen meadowlarks, hawks, and cowbirds in the area as well.
  22. Any hope for this ID? I took this pic from my car in the rain today in central KY, so it's definitely not going to end up in National Geographic. I think I see a white chest and darker head/shoulders? It's probably something pretty common, but I'm curious and I'd appreciate an ID if it's possible!
  23. What kind of hawk is this? Seen in central KY today.
