  1. So sorry for the late reply, a lot has been going on.

    Quick sketch of a goose coming in for a landing. I didn’t use any reference images so proportions are off.Β

    @Colton VΒ You are the winner this time! Lovely sketch, hard to believe that you did this from memory! You can pick the next bird.

  2. This is where it really pays off to study House Sparrows, as they sometimes associate with that species when found outside of their range! This bird does have some slight yellow tones on its head, and the black malar stripe especially distinguishes it from House Sparrows. Also notice the streaking on the back flanks and subtle structural differences.

    The two species are extremely similar, and often not separable except by voice and range. However, Black-capped Β tends to have more white on the wings. However, Carolina is extremely rare in NY, so your safe calling all of your chickadees that are either Black-capped or Carolina as Black-capped, unless you have reasons to prove otherwise.Β 

    This. You're in the core range of Black-capped, so no need to worry about distinguishing from Carolina.
