  1. Check out eBird data for the county you'll be going for, and use the Targets function to see a list of species and their frequencies. Depending on your warbler list, you should be able to pick up a few, especially if you learn their songs beforehand! I'll add the warbler song site that someone on here made (my mind is blanking on who to @) http://benguofilms.com/quiz.php?quiz=1&id=5992
  2. Some other things to note: ECDO are HUGE in comparison to MODO, and are much paler than normal MODOs
  3. I've seen quite a few female-type mallards with that buffy facial pattern, as well as some other oddities (dark eyebrow, black bill...). The answers I have usually received from others is that it's within the variability of typical plumage, even if it is noticeably odd. I will add that the saddle on this bird's bill is "translucent" something I haven't noticed before
  4. Glad to see the midwest is getting a taste of Redpoll mania! I have so many great memories from last winter.
  5. Oh, I see what I did. I thought the first photo was distorting the bill to make it look longer, so I thought it was only the "solid" part. My bad @cccougar. Hopefully you'll get those Rusties soon!
  6. Not a Screech. They wouldn't have that much black. I'm having trouble finding anything with that pattern. Closest I've come was a certain variety of chicken with that same pattern on a body feather, so some sort of game bird seems like a good guess. Most of the raptor feathers are barred, not whatever you call that pattern.
  7. Really? The tails don't look nearly long enough to me.
  8. When I get back to my dorm room I’ll pull out my feather book.
  9. I believe so. Bill looks curved. Definitely not grackles!
  10. You'll still be able to find a bunch of warblers in the summer!
  11. What is Olympic? Also, thank you @AlexHenry for the specification on the others!
  12. This one is on my bucket list: https://ebird.org/species/wallcr1 Those wing patches!!!
