  1. 2, 4, 6, 8... who do we appreciate? Pine Warblers!
  2. OK, well I didn't completely flunk but I've left room for improvement. Thanks for having a look!
  3. OK, I'm still trying to figure these warblers out. I saw a bunch of them together today and it's starting to make more sense. Please grade my quiz for me. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 1. Palm warbler 2. Yellow-rumped, I think 3. Palm 4. Yellow-rumped 5. Every quiz has to have one gimme question 6. Pine 7. Trick question, White-eyed Vireo 8. I don't know, Pine, maybe? 9. Yellow-rumped
  4. Thanks for the link to that graph Tony. I wasn't aware that tool existed. I'm in Hillsborough County Florida where the Palms outnumber the Yellow-rumped by a little this time of year. I'm sure I've seen many Yellow-rumped though and just mistook them for Palms. This is all good information. I keep learning, albeit slowly.
  5. "wingpits". I didn't know that was a thing. I'll be able to remember that, for sure!
  6. OK, there you go. The second picture is a good match. And yes, I didn't get to see it from above so no yellow rump from my perspective. Thanks for the additional info. It seems like once I've asked for help with an ID I end up seeing that bird all them time. I'll be able able to spot a yellow-rumped from a mile away now. ?
  7. I find these warblers to be puzzling. I expected to see more yellow on the rump of a yellow-rumped and thought white underparts and a black tipped tail pointed to Magnolia. I am sure I'll have them all figured out eventually if I hang out here long enough. Thanks for the ID!
  8. I've seen a lot of Palm Warblers this fall and a few Black-and-white ones but hadn't bumped into one of these previously. Can you confirm it's a Magnolia Warbler? Thanks!
  9. It seems like everyone should be happy while vacationing at the beach. I'm not sure why he was so grumpy.
  10. An immature Brown Pelican testing the waters this morning.
  11. OK, thanks. I've seen them around quite a bit lately, often on the ground which I guess should have been a clue. I appreciate the ID and info.
  12. Are these Pine Warblers? Do you suppose they are fighting, dating or just playing tag? Thanks.
  13. Thanks for the replies. I see them often but this one looked odd to me. I guess just because it is a young one. Thanks!
  14. Is this just a rough looking Northern Mockingbird or something else? Seen today in Florida. Thanks!
  15. Thank you all for the responses. I'm new to the hobby and am learning along with my kids, ages seven and ten. We appreciate the definitive answers and all the supplemental information.
  16. My guesses have not been very good so far. I better sit this one out. Taken near Plant City, FL this evening. Thanks in advance.
  17. Thank you. I heard the commotion and ran outside with my camera and took them in my front yard. They are crops from much larger images so they aren't super sharp but good enough to get a feel for it. I counted another five birds that were circling much higher, just spectating I suppose. There are are few more pictures from the series here: http://sean.mcrobert.us/
  18. Thank you both for the good information. It was a treat to watch even if I didn't know what I was looking at.
  19. I caught this Red Shouldered Hawk in a dog fight with what I assumed was an Osprey yesterday in central Florida. I thought the head should be more white though so I am asking for a positive ID. Thanks!
  20. These have been regular visitors to our feeder in Central Florida but I haven't determined what they are. Some kind of Tanager perhaps?
