  1. Hi everyone. I saw this sparrow today in Sweetwater Wetlands Park in Gainesville, Florida. It was in the grass near the reedy bank of a large artificial pond. I saw some savannah sparrows nearby, but this one was by itself. I did not see yellow above its eyes like with the others.


  2. Hi everyone. I spotted this bird in the late afternoon in a suburban neighborhood of Gainesville, Florida. I did not hear it make a sound and it soon flew away into some large trees. The best I could guess is it's a type of flycatcher, but I have no idea which if that's the case. According to Merlin the following are the possible flycatchers in Gainesville today: the great crested flycatcher, the Acadian flycatcher, the alder flycatcher, the least flycatcher (rare), and the willow flycatcher (rare.) There are also eastern wood pewees. But maybe it's something completely different?

    Thank you!


  3. Hi everyone, I saw this cardinal that I presume is male but had a lot of coloration I'd associate with females. I know many of the cardinals are currently molting/have recently molted but this is the first time I've seen a cardinal look like this. Could anyone ID this definitively as a male and/or help explain this bird's color? Thank you!

    Details: Taken in Gainesville, FL around 9:00 AM on July 25th. The bird was alone in a tree not making any sounds. It then flew away.



  4. Hi everyone, can you help me id this bird? I saw it at the edge of a small wooded area next to a pond in Gainesville, Florida yesterday (July 21st) at about 7:00 PM. It was an unusually cool night, about 78 degrees F. There were some feeders nearby senior being visited by house finches, cardinals, mockingbirds, downy and red-bellied woodpeckers as well as nearby juvenile and adult eastern bluebirds. This bird was alone and stayed on a tree branch at least fifteen feet off the ground. I did not hear it make sounds.
