  1. I saw that both of them looked the same while side by side, and this thread shows what they look like as juveniles: https://www.birdforum.net/gallery/common-tody-flycatcher-juvenile.701473/
  2. From today. This is my only clearly identifiable shot of one, they are always hiding in brush!
  3. This bird looks rather similar if that's what you meant by a reference. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/381676501
  4. Yeah, looks like an adult with a juvenile Common Tody-Flycatcher.
  5. This is a pretty clear-cut Palm Warbler to me. It's kinda blurry but you can still see the facial pattern, and habitat is typical.
  6. I have a massive backlog since I've been busy with accelerated high school, but last week I participated in my first birding competition! It was the first time the Barrens Birding Blitz was held, with teams birding across the local Albany Pine Bush Preserve. Altogether 101 species were recorded during the competition. Species had to be confirmed by at least two members of the group and teams were required to stay together- pretty standard competition rules I think. My team came in first place with 60 species, and our names will be engraved on the Barrens Blitz trophy cup! We also saw the highest number of warbler species. I got this trophy to take home: I had good looks (although not great photos) of two lifers that I got there- #309 Merlin and #310 Wilson's Warbler! I'll upload the rest of the pictures tomorrow hopefully
  7. Temperatures here have dropped to the 50s in the morning.
  8. It's a Common Tern in breeding plumage- nonbreeding plumaged individuals would have a white forehead.

  10. I don't really pay attention to the top 100 much, because there are many good birding spots that are nearby but across the county line. I don't restrict myself to birding mostly in my home county. #21 for all time for my county #6 for the year.
  11. I might do a few, but I'm pretty busy for the rest of the year with orchestra and doing two years of high school in one.
  12. Why not Eastern Wood-Pewee? Primary projection looks pretty long, and Alder/Willow are fairly uncommon that time of year. I believe the last two photos are of the same bird.
  13. Probably unidentifiable, but strikes me as a Zonotrichia.
  14. I also think it's Acadian, but I don't have experience with that species.
  15. I see that it's a Veery now, my guess was after my bedtime after a three hour orchestra rehearsal 😅
