  1. I never thought I would get a good look at a Henslow's Sparrow let alone a good photo. Until Yesterday.
  2. From my local cemetery in Chicago. 18 seconds between the two recordings. birdnet_mobile_2340026484_recording_4367.wav birdnet_mobile_2340026484_recording_4369.wav Thanks
  3. This swallow was very close a Bank Swallow colony and there were Bank Swallows flying all around. Wondering if this might be a juvenile. Would normally call this a NRWS. Thanks.
  4. Red-tailed Hawk for sure. Belly band and dark area on the underside of the front of the wing are good marks.
  5. I can bump and verify a Dunlin in photo 1. And......that's all I got.
  6. All in Chicago on 5/21. I thought they all had long primary projection. Was searching for an Acadian. Thanks. Bird 1: 2 photos Bird 2: 1 photo Bird 3: 1 photo
  7. The head is at an angle so it is tough to judge exactly how long the bill is, but I think this looks good for LEYE.
  8. The tail looks too long for a WEWA. I do not have a good suggestion though. Maybe Chipping Sparrow?
  9. 1 Indigo Bunting Female I think. 2 Eastern Towhee 3 Northern Waterthrush 4 and 5 Great-crested Flycatcher Feel free to correct me.
  10. Leaning Northern but the legs stood out as very pinkish and a plain throat. What say you? This morning in Chicago.
  11. Coopers? Just to stir the pot.
  12. If I saw that in the field with the red on the bill I would call it common.
  13. This morning at my local cemetery in Chicago. There was a Blue-headed Vireo nearby. Thanks!
  14. Kentucky Warbler. Well worth a little birding in light rain after work to get this lifer.
  15. Seems like Orange-crowned fits.
  16. Hey, 2 Questions. 1) This was taken east of of Marco at the 10,000 Island NWR observation tower off of route 41. Any hope for these Dowitchers? It is a freshwater area. 2) No photo. A couple of times at dawn on the southern tip of the Marco Island beach I say some birds fly in off of the ocean and disappear into the small palm trees and low shrubs of the hotel on the southwest tip of the island. At first I thought they were Fish Crows but they were not as dark and a little smaller. They did not have fingers on they wings. The wings were perfectly perpendicular to the body. I never got a photo. Any Ideas?
  17. Don't think I will ever get in the top ten. Only at 199 species at this spot. Gotta step up my game.
  18. Not sure how rare these are including their Caribbean range, but their range in the US is a tiny sliver of south Florida. I did know what they were when I spotted them. My best bird by far from spring break on Marco Island. White-crowned Pigeon.
  19. The buff colored area on the breast with the fine dark streaks distinctive.
  20. All from 3/6 in Chicago at Burnham Harbor. First 2 photos are the same group. Is there enough in the photos to call some of them either way? 3) Greater and a Lesser? 4) Redhead left in for size comparison. 5) Greater? 6) Do not know. Thanks.
  21. I have all of these listed as lesser/greater right now although I have suspicions about all of them. 1) 2/21 Montrose Harbor in Chicago. 2) 2/27 Montrose Harbor Chicago. Looking at the bird at the bottom. 3) 3/6 Burnham Harbor in Chicago. 4) 3/6 Burnham Harbor in Chicago. Thanks.
  22. Thanks for clearing this up, I had listened to a bunch of mammal sounds that I found online but I guessed I missed some. I have a couple other good recordings from that same day and location that birdnet gives me recommendations that are not in North America. I am going to guess they are mammals as well. At least I will carry the fond memories of my kids freaking out when they spotted a huge rattlesnake on the edge of the trail. Thanks!
  23. From 8/5/2020 in Lory State Park west of Ft. Collins in Colorado. The terrain was scrubby foothills with exposed rock and small bushes, a few trees and tall grass. Time was around 1:00 PM. These two recordings were take about a minute apart. I have been comparing the to recordings of many species for this location and I can not figure it out. birdnet_mobile_2340026484_recording_1304 Unknown.wav birdnet_mobile_2340026484_recording_1303 Unknown.wav Thanks for any suggestions. I will also include the bar chart for this location for the last five years. https://ebird.org/barchart?r=L456475&byr=2018&eyr=2022&m=8
