  1. Did you mean "Yellow-fronted Canary"? I look at pics of the Yellow-fronted Canary, but that's not what I saw. Yellow did not extend over the eyes, and the bill wasn't that thick. This bird was more vireo-like than finch-like. Thanks for everyone's opinions, I do appreciate them. Looks like this will be the dreaded "bird sp" ID.
  2. Definitely NOT a Canada Warbler - No eye ring, wings and back weren't that dark, no streaks on breast. And this bird have a malar stripe.
  3. Observed this bird today (9.21.21) in Bradenton Fl. No photos but I did get 2 recordings. A Vireo/Warbler sized bird, overall yellow colored (not dull yellow or green). No wing bars, but wings and back were slightly darker. The area above the bill and between the eyes was bright yellow, but there were no yellow or white eye rings (or spectacles). It also had a thin black malar stripe (mustache). Here are the two recordings. 2021-09-21 0752.wav 2021-09-21 0756.wav
  4. Here a several recordings and I need some assistance. Recordings dated 2021-08-09 are from Homestead FL and the 2021-08-03 are from Okeechobee Fl. Any opinions? 2021-08-03 1043.wav 2021-08-03 1046.wav 2021-08-09 1222.wav
  5. This morning (9.15.21) I got 3 different Veery voice ID's from my Merlin voice app while birding in my back yard in Orlando FL. I know the Merlin voice ID isn't 100% accurate, so I wanted to get the Bird Community's opinions on whether it's a Veery or not. Note the recordings aren't very good and the alleged Veery calls are faint. 2021-09-15 Veery, Blue Jay.wav 2021-09-15 Veery, Cardinal.wav 2021-09-15 Veery.wav
  6. My first Ground Dove was in Delray over 40 yrs ago
  7. 2021-07-27 0813 Orchard Oriole.wav Yesterday (July 27) I recorded this bird in Madison County FL. Merlin Bird Sound ID came up as an Orchard Oriole. Since I didn't see the bird and I'm not proficient with Orchard Oriole calls/songs, I'm asking the WhatBird community for their collective opinions. The call begins at about 12 seconds. Disregard the RWBB's at the beginning.
  8. Agreed. My default is SB until I hear that its LB (generally speaking of course).
  9. The only 100% accurate way to differentiate a SBDO vs LBDO is by voice.
  10. Location: Egans Creek Greenway, Nassau County, FL (Amelia Island) Date: 4.27.21 Grasshopper Sparrow?
  11. and War Eagle from a former Alabama birder
  12. Location; Orlando FL Date: 4.12.21 Opinions???
  13. Date: 4.3.21 Location: Ft Desoto Park, St. Pete FL Wilson's? Snowy? Wilson's? Semipalmated?
  14. Location - South of Lakeland FL Date - 3.30.21 I thought Savannah. What say you? Sorry for the poor lighting, neither the bird nor the sun were cooperating that day.
