  1. Haha I see red-shouldered hawks probably five times a week and thought I had them down pat. This one looked so totally different to me! I took a ton of pictures of it and not a single one said "red-shouldered" to me. The head, the bill, all looked totally different from the red=shoulders I see every day. ?
  2. I saw this the other day in NE Florida. I always struggle with raptors that I oniy see once every year or two. Cooper's hawk?
  3. Sorry the photo is so rotten, Seen today in NE Florida. Clues about the three larger black birds or the smaller one?
  4. Thanks! That's what I was afraid of, but kept hoping it would be something else. LOL It was so little I was wondering why it wasn't with mama. ?
  5. Seen today. A plover of some sort? I'd first thought killdeer as they do live around here, but it was much smaller, and didn't have the distinct double "necklace".
  6. Thanks, I was thinking the duck was a rind-neck. And thanks for the Coopers ID. I see them so seldom that I'm never sure when I do!
  7. Any help. I was thinking I knew but wasn't sure when I looked at photos more closely.
  8. Thanks everyone. Pine warbler sounds so obvious now that you say it. I’ve been hearing them in the neighborhood the last week or so. I have pine warblers come to my feeders all winter. But the first time they show up for the season I occasionally find myself confused. ?
  9. I haven’t been able to get a photo but I’ll keep trying. Definitely a small warbler, likely female. She’s been coming to my feeders today. very distinct yellow eye rings. Upper body a drab brownish, yellow breast fading to pale cream at the vent. Two distinct white wing bars. I’ve looked though my Audubon app and two field guides but didn’t see anything that looked like her. Any ideas?
  10. Well a friend of mine who lives on the pond where these birds were sighted, and got a much better look at them, reported them to eBird as blue-winged teals so I guess I’ll just go with her sighting as she’s a better birder than I am!
  11. Northern pintails would be a definite rarity around here and not likely until about Christmas
  12. Seen this morning in NE Florida. I apologize for how awful the photos are. The birds were pretty far off and I was using as much zoom as I could, but could not get anything really in focus. Seen in a retention pond with a bunch of common gallinules and a couple black-bellied whistling ducks. They seem rather tealish to me. I'm thinking blue-winged teal as that would be most common around here now.
  13. I totally agree that size can be extremely difficult to judge. It’s stumped me many times. But I’m not exactly “new” here either. I’ve posted here many times over many years - on and off. But somehow my ID seemed to have vanished some time ago. ?
  14. I see cattle egrets in road medians all the time back home in Florida. It seems to be a common habitat for them. Though I also see them pretty often in fields with, <gasp>, cattle! But they are certainly my first thought when I hear smallish egret-like bird with an orange bill, especially in a road median.
