  1. Seen on fence in Brooklyn, NY backyard. It is near a feeder, but he stayed on the fence for a few minutes. It was around 2 today. He is a lot darker than pics in Merin ID. Main colors are black and grey. More like a black cap than a black head.
  2. Thanks for the pointers, I had not noticed the uniqueness of the tail. The body was almost as dark as the head, which threw me off. In the pics, the beak blends with the water.
  3. Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge, Queens, New York, 11:30 am today. This guy would dive for food:
  4. Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge, 11 am today.
  5. It was spotted by a bird feeder in my Brooklyn backyard, yesterday afternoon. There were House sparrows, and squirrels nearby.
  6. Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge, Queens. Last Friday, around 10am. There were a couple of these around each of several nesting boxes. I saw them mainly on the boxes or nearby branches.
  7. I put up a bird feeder about 2 weeks ago, that has not attracted any birds. It is hanging from a 10' branch, about 6' above the ground. Is this too close to the ground?
  8. Is it common for them to be this light?
  9. It flew by around 9:30 today and landed in a tree in Brooklyn backyard. It stayed there for a couple of minutes. I assume it is a red tail hawk, but don't really know any other hawks.
  10. robin.mp3 Song is from a Brooklyn, NY backyard in a 50 ft pine tree. Bird is not visible. It is loudest and most persistent in the early morning, but this is from early afternoon.
  11. The birds were seen this afternoon in a Brooklyn backyard. They are taking a bath on a pool cover. The cardinal provides scale. The head looked rather plain, and slate colored for a sparrow, though it does have a white streak.
  12. This bird was spotted this afternoon in a Brooklyn backyard. The feeder has sunflower seeds. He or she is the size of a sparrow.
