  1. e-bird photo ID shows up with both Henslow’s and Lincoln’s Sparrow. My husband and I are having a difficult time deciding which one it really is. We were at Desoto Bend National Wildlife Refuge in Iowa. Photos were taken yesterday, around 3:30pm near a small pond with lots of other sparrow species around. Let us know what you think.
  2. Saw this little guy in a tree at my house in Council Bluffs, IA. He hopped around from branch to branch eating bugs for about 10 minutes but was always on the far side of the tree. I didn’t hear any calls and have never seen this bird at my house before. I think it might be a Nashville Warbler, Orange Crowned Warbler, or maybe some type of Vireo. What stands out to me is the white ring around his eye. Any ideas?
  3. There was one lone Sandpiper amongst seven Killdeer today at Big Lake in Council Bluffs, Iowa. We saw this little guy when we were watching the migrating Pelicans. Can you help us with a positive ID?
  4. Thank you. That is what we thought but the olive color was tricking us.
  5. We think it is some type of Warbler or could it be an Oriole? We think it was to big to be an Oriole. There were three hopping around in the tree eating insects. They were fast movers but we didn’t hear them make any sounds. Taken at Big Lake in Council Bluffs, IA on August 30th.
  6. We think it is either the Eastern Wood Pewee or the Least Flycatcher, but can’t tell for sure. We took this picture on August 30 at Vincent Bluff State Preserve in Council Bluffs, IA. We did not hear it make any calls.
