  1. Ah, that's what I thought. I got excited for a second because I thought it looked a little light to be a house sparrow. I'll keep looking! Thanks!
  2. Saw this bird on a fence near a bison enclosure in central KY the a couple days ago. May just have been a little house sparrow, but I'm always hoping for something more exciting! ? Any help is appreciated!
  3. I didn't manage to get a recording, so I can't remember exactly what it sounded like, but I am confident it wasn't a Bell's. It was hopping from branch to branch and singing, so it was hard to get a good picture, but I like warbling vireo based on the colors. Listening to the warbling vireo's song on ebird, I am not 100% that that is what I heard, but I am more inclined towards WAVI than BEVI. Thanks for the help! ?
  4. I do not know about Bell's vireo - I know it wasn't doing that scratchy scribble-sounding BEVI song. Also, where I was birding central KY is a little far east for Bell's. Definitely not ruling it out though, I would love to spot a Bell's vireo here! I don't suppose it could be a blue-headed vireo? It may be a trick of the light, but it looks like the chin is lighter than the cheeks and head.
  5. Hi guys, I was birding yesterday in central KY and got some semi-blurry pictures that I need help identifying. I think the first is a flycatcher species based on the wing bars, but not sure which. I don't know about the second species. I thought it might be a titmouse, but I thought the call sounded odd. Sorry for the bad quality. 1. Flycatcher? 2-4. Maybe a titmouse
  6. Hi guys, I have two IDs. Both were in central KY today. The first is some type of flycatcher, but I don't know which species. I believe the other two are Baltimore orioles, a male and a female, but I have never actually seen one in person before, so correct me if I am wrong! 1 & 2 - flycatcher 3. male BAOR 4. female BAOR
  7. Thanks everyone! Looks like I need to work on my swallow ID skills! ?
  8. Sorry for the bad quality. This is the clearest picture I got. I know it's probably a long shot, but could anyone tell me what this is? I am pretty sure it was either a northern rough-winged swallow or a bank swallow with the body shape and the colors. It was skimming over a pond earlier this afternoon in central KY.
  9. Thank you! I had a suspicion they were, but the coloration threw me off.
  10. Let's try this again - let me know if it does not attach. Sorry about that! Saw these in a pond in KY and I thought their coloration was interesting. Possibly domestic mallards?
  11. Saw these ducks at a pond in KY recently. The coloration was interesting - possibly just domestic mallards?
  12. Saw these ducks at a local pond recently. The coloration was interesting - possibly just domestic mallards?
