  1. Still a novice at waterfowl! Taken this morning (December 8, 2021) in East Texas (Smith County). Conditions were stormy, overcast, and very dark. Range maps make Lesser more likely but would appreciate an expert opinion.
  2. I think relative size and chest marking are right for juvenile Red-Shouldered. Wanting someone to double-check my work. Observed today (December 7, 2021) in northeastern Texas (Smith County).
  3. Having difficulty discerning this one. Torn between Alder and Least Flycatcher. Observed today in East Texas (Smith County).
  4. I think this is an Acadian Flycatcher but would like a second opinion. Taken in East Texas (Wood County) today (5/1/2021).
  5. Can some confirm this is a Great-Horned Owl? Taken 3/28/2021 in East Texas (Tyler). Thanks!
  6. Having a difficult time with this one. I feel like it is a Swainson’s Hawk, but color and facial markings don’t seem quite right for it unless it is a juvenile. Thanks in advance! Taken in Motley County, TX on September 6, 2020.
  7. Please help with ID. Taken in Glacier National Park, Montana last July. Asking for a friend.
  8. Saw this flock from quite a ways away. Pretty certain they are White Ibis but seeking confirmation. Observed today June 13, 2020 in East Texas (Smith County).
  9. Unless a juvenile’s behavior is vastly different than an adult, hopping along the ground does not sound right at all for a flycatcher.
  10. Foremost, I am loath to post pictures of such poor quality. I will spare you the several excuses for why they are bad. We spotted this one at dusk—solitary and hopping along the ground in a field. Its breast is yellow with dark grayish head and back. I included the pathetic attempt with the flash so the wing feathers can be seen from a posterior view. Taken yesterday in East Texas (Smith County).
  11. What of the white “collar” around the neck?
  12. Observed in East Texas (Gregg County) on April 1. Approximately crow-size.
  13. Observed today in Northeast Texas (Marion County). Would be a lifer for me and a spring migrant, so not very familiar with the species. I believe it is a Black-Throated Green Warbler and looking for confirmation. Thanks!
  14. Photos taken today (as you can tell--shooting against sunlight) in Northeast Texas (Marion County). I'm leaning toward Scarlet Tanager--body is more drab and more contrast between body color and wing color. Also appears to have a slightly more slender bill.
  15. I’m fairly certain this is a Licoln’s Sparrow which would be a lifer for me. Was wanting to get a confirmation on the ID. Seen today (4/16/2020) in East Texas (Tyler).
