  1. Thank you all for the input. It is much appreciated.
  2. Not sure if this one will be identifiable... SW Alberta earlier this week.
  3. Thanks. I thought the cap wasn’t black enough and the body not yellow enough so I convinced myself it must be something other than a Wilson’s.
  4. Window strike that later recovered and flew away. I only took this one photo. SW Alberta earlier today.
  5. SW Alberta yesterday. Observed along brushy edge of pond in aspen and cottonwood forest. I have attached audio/video of the bird calling (link after last photo). 00001.mkv

  7. Here are more photos (as well as repeats of the original three). The first 3 photos were taken through a window. The 3 photos of the bird perched (with the bill appearing thinner) have a solid white background behind the bird (and are cropped more) which may be contributing to the appearance of the bill losing some thickness in the photo. With that said, I can't say for sure that this is only one bird in all of the photos.
  8. The photos were all taken within minutes of each other. I think they are all of the same bird but I am not 100% certain. I don’t have feeders in my yard. The bird was feeding in a willow tree outside my kitchen window. Calliope and Rufous are expected around here but I thought there might be a chance this was a Black-chinned.
  9. SW Alberta (20km west of Pincher Creek) earlier today.
  10. Confused by this one. The beak seams to point to grosbeak but maybe I am missing something. SW Alberta, this afternoon.

  12. I just listened to a couple of flight song videos on YouTube and I feel confident it is the same song I was hearing plus a few other photos I found online look very similar. Thanks everyone for your input.
  13. Thoughts on Sprague’s Pipit? They perform a song flight high in sky and their profile (from Sibley drawing) appears very similar to the bird I photographed though the tail length in the first photo appears longer.
  14. Twin River Heritage Rangeland Natural Area at approximately 49.1588, -112.3646 which I believe is outside of Western Bluebird range.
