  1. From that angle, both the Sooty and the Shorty look similar. Size is going to help ID, Short is 33% smaller. Small tern size vs. gull size.
  2. Did you hear them, that helps to ID when they are overhead. Tundras have a cooing /whooing voice ,owllike while the Trumpeter ,is hornlike. The lores are different but you need to be ground level to see that.
  3. Western Tanagers would be my 3 cent thought. Really not enough to go on for a positive ID.
  4. Today, sw ohio. First is sparrow,Vesper maybe? Sulking in margin area between mowed and brush ,stayed close to ground and as hidden as it could be while foraging. Second image of duck, long and skinny, first thought it was a Loon or Merganser from afar. First thought of Long Tailed but even that doesn’t look right.Thanks.
  5. If the bird called at all, and it should have being breeding season, if Willow sounds like two syllable fzzzbuu .Listening for the vocalizing of flycatchers is the best way to tell them apart.This is a Willow taken earlier this month.
  6. Blue grey gnatcatcher,eyering + nervous behavior. Warbling vireo would have eyestripe.
  7. Dunlins are going to have dark bellies this time of year, easy ID. Image for learning purpose.Note that the Sanderlings lack a back toe, only 3.
  8. After doing some research, and I am looking for a second and third opinion, this looks good for a Raven because the upper mandible curves over the lower creating a “beaked” parrot look, the nasal feathers creep halfway down the beak.
  9. 5/19/19 today SW Ohio, when I first saw it I thought ,that’s a big Crow, the size of a Hawk.
