  1. Photo was taken at the end of July in Cary, NC. At first I thought it was a Red-eyed Vireo but when I went back to it, its back looked to green for me. Any thoughts on this would be very appreciated.
  2. Both pictures were taken yesterday evening in a marsh located in Cary, NC. Both birds were in groups of about 4-5. Any help with identifying them would be appreciated.
  3. Picture 1 was taken about 3 months ago and picture 2 yesterday, both in Cary, NC. I think the hawk is a Red-shouldered and the sparrow is a Song but I need confirmation. Thanks in advance for your help.
  4. According to Sibley, juvenile Turkey Vultures have grayish heads.
  5. This is a Turkey Vulture. The 2 colored wings give it away. A black vulture just has lighter feathers on the wing tips.
  6. Photos taken in late June 2020 at Wrightsville Beach NC. Photo 1 I think is a Willet but I'm not sure, photo 2 I need confirmation on Least Tern, and photo 3 I couldn't decide between Common and Foresters Tern. Any help with ID-ing/Confirming these birds would be very appreciated.
  7. Sadly I don't have another pic but this spot is really close to my house so my family and I will keep going there. If I get a better shot I'll post it here.
  8. Thanks. If it is Hairy then that's a lifer for me.
  9. Taken today in Cary, NC. I'm not sure if it's a Hairy or Downy. It's a pretty heavy crop but hopefully it's still ID-able. Any help would be appreciated.
  10. I only started birding in April so my year (and life) list is only 62.
  11. In the second picture you can see the white eye-ring and spotted chest indicative of a juvenile American Robin.
  12. This was seen today in Raleigh, NC. I think it's a Pine Warbler but I need confirmation. Sorry for the fuzzy picture and thanks for your help.
  13. I saw this unfamiliar bird today in Cary, NC. It was hanging out with some blue Grosbeaks and I initially thought it was one too but when I got home and looked at the pictures, it had a black back and head and a whitish belly. Sorry for the bad photo quality. Any help identifying it would be very appreciated.
  14. When you zoom in you can see some redness on the head so I'm thinking turkey vulture.
