  1. These are 2 different birds. Added the obvious Yellow , with the banded tail, for comparison. It is probable that they are all Yellow, but immature birds take some extra effort, hence my posting. Additional images, different birds.
  2. The thrushes and cuckoos descended en masses in this sycamore grove , feasting on crawly things. Most of the Cuckoos were Yellow, but one seemed different.No banding on tail, but showing yellow lower mandible ,at least at base. Iris and orbital ring are different.Thanks, Top,Black,no tail banding/iris and ring, bottom Yellow. l
  3. Based on the vocalization alone, all I can offer is a recently fledged bird that is hanging around near its nest calling for food from the parents. Were adult birds around? Youngsters of all species will make a ruckus for more food, exposing them to predators.
  4. Wow ,that is one of the few Piping I have seen that doesn’t have 3 or more bands attached to it. Lucky Goose.
  5. I am seeing a little bit of dirty yellow legs on top image. The breast streaking continues down from the neck to the upper belly in image 3 and 4 and ends crisply. Pectoral would be my best thought. Baird’s are rather squat sitting birds ,from the knee joint up is minimal.
  6. This was taken 10 days ago , one of a family of Warbling that I have followed all season, through mating, nesting and fledging. Just for comparison.
  7. I am getting crickets from the local data base here in Ohio as well which is unusual.
  8. A female Barrow’s will have a yellow bill in breeding season. Assuming the ducklings are hers, I would guess that she has breed recently. That being said, the forehead slope is near vertical ,which is diagnostic of Barrow.Fence sitting.
  9. This species rocks back and forth centered on its legs as a pivot point rather than just the rump bobbing up and down like a Spotted.
  10. This morning SW Ohio, Kite? The dark face mask is throwing me off.
  11. Thanks all, next episode will feature Sultry Starlings-the untold story.
  12. The Eastern “red” sub has visible but not outstanding median and primary bars.A recessive gene that may or may not occur? The western birds behave differently than the eastern, they are not as much ground hugging.
  13. Rockies subspecies Fox Sparrow, white collar patch.
