  1. So I recorded this song this morning in eastern Nebraska in a wooded area. The bird I'm interested in repeats a similar phrase. Sometimes it's puh-CHEEP, and sometimes it has a faint third syllable puhduh-CHEEP. In some ways, it sounds robin-y, but I listened to all the robin variants on petersonbirdsounds.com and none really fit. Can you help? Bird song on flickr
  2. In the field, I thought this bird was a tufted titmouse. But after I got home and looked closely at the pictures, I began to doubt. Observed today in eastern Nebraska. Can you help?
  3. I saw it fly into the tree, and it didn't have the jizz of a falcon. I also have a picture from behind (which unfortunately doesn't show the tail), and the bird's back is all-over blue grey, so I think that would also rule out the Kestrel.
  4. Hi! This bird was observed this morning in Alexandria, VA. I didn't have my superzoom with me, and all I could get was a sad, distant photo. I'm leaning towards Sharp Shinned b/c the head seems rounded, but I thought I'd see what you guys thought. I'd really like to narrow it down; I'm only in VA for the holiday and would love to get as many birds here as I can. TIA!
  5. Observed two days ago in northwestern Missouri. One pic seems to show a buffy wash, but the other picture shows a strong triangular malar. Thanks in advance!
  6. Hi! This bird was observed Oct 12 in northwestern Missouri on the edge of a wetland. The sun was setting, so a couple of the pictures have that tint.
  7. This bird was observed two days ago in north western Missouri. Thanks for any help you can provide.
  8. Hi, Tony, thanks for replying. The birds were observed near Omaha.
  9. I think I figured out the second one by myself. Golden-crowned kinglet?
  10. Hi! Can you please help me with these two birds seen in eastern Nebraska this morning? Thank you! 1. which flycatcher? 2. warbler?
  11. Hi! The hawk was observed yesterday in southeastern Nebraska. The lbb was observed this morning in northeastern Kansas. r Thank you for any help you can offer!
  12. These three birds were all observed today near Lincoln, NE. I appreciate any help you can offer. 1. 2. 3.
  13. This bird was observed last weekend near Kansas City, Kansas. I think it's a female tanager, but I'm having trouble deciding b/n the summer and scarlet.
  14. Can you tell what this bird is by his song? Heard a couple days ago near Monument, Colorado. FamC Sat AM Unknown Song.wav
  15. I have one more picture of the Hummer. I don't know that it helps....
  16. Thank you, Creeker! Would you explain to me how you ruled out broad-tailed? (I've only got one species, ruby-throated, here at home, and I don't know much about telling them apart.)
  17. These two birds were observed yesterday near Monument, Colorado. 1. Hummingbird 2.
  18. So, I'm a dork and have been confusing 4 & 5. 🙄 The extra picture I posted was actually of bird #5. I'm so sorry for the confusion.
  19. I have a bunch of equally blurry photos, and I'm looking through them to see if any help. I think this one show that the lower mandible is definitely paler than the upper.
  20. Thank you SO MUCH for your help! I looked up the Cassin's Sparrow and read that they like wide-open grasslands. I suppose it would help if I mentioned that I was near Monument, Colorado. Would that make a different sparrow more likely?
  21. I was visiting Colorado earlier this week, and I need help with some IDs. Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide! 1. In this one, I'm wondering about the bird to the left, not the fem bluebird. 2. Is there an expert who can guess the flycatcher? He just wouldn't sing for me. 😞 3. I know these last three were very distant and hard to photograph. But if you could help me figure them out, I'd love to add to my western bird list! 4. 5.
  22. Can you please help me with this bird? This was observed today in southeast Nebraska. I think all three photos are of the same individual.
  23. One out-of-focus sparrow. And two shorebirds. These were all observed today in eastern Nebraska.
