  1. I have one picture where the wings are a little lifted but I'm not sure if it helps. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/613759065
  2. Seen this morning in central NC. There has been a Clay-Colored Sparrow reported here for the last couple weeks or so and I think I got this morning. I have a couple reasons for my ID but I would like a couple more opinions. Any help would be greatly appreciated. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/613757609
  3. Rusty Blackbird https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/612983463
  4. I feel like the rufous is a trick from the lighting. The reason I believed it was a Greater Scaup is because one had been reported within half a mile from where I saw it, and pictures of that individual look almost identical to the one I saw. Here are some pictures of the bird I'm describing. In the pictures you can see the sharp line between colors on the neck and that the bird doesn't have as much white on the sides as you'd expect. I observed the bird at a different location than where it was previously reported, but at the end of my observation it flew back to the original place it was found.
  5. What indicators make this a Redhead instead of a Greater Scaup?
  6. Both birds were seen today in central NC. The scaup I believe is Greater but would like confirmation. The falcon I believe is a Merlin as a Peregrine would be larger (It was much smaller than the crow that was chasing it) and a Kestrel would have more color. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  12. Your Swainson's Warbler on that checklist is I believe actually a Northern Cardinal.
