  1. Caspian Tern, Chambers Bay, Tacoma, WA by Christopher Clark, on Flickr
  2. Haha this I can agree to ^ That's how I learned to be the birder I am today... Spending a lot of time looking through different paper field guides. Its amazing what you can learn by going that route! Of course, apps and researching birds online does have its perks too.
  3. I'll agree with Solitary Sandpiper! The eye ring is one thing that helps ID them
  4. Yeah I don't recall too much... Had it listed as a White-eyed, guess I'll just leave it as Vireo sp though. Wish I had better views!
  5. These all look like Commons with those short tails (compared to Boat-tailed anyway)
  6. Almost sounds like a Painted Bunting, except they're blue above. Might check out photos just to be sure? Welcome to the site, by the way! EDIT: Male Painted Buntings have a blue head but green back, females are plain pale green all over. I'd say that's a pretty good bet!
  7. And a few more southwestern specialties Gray Hawk Rose-throated Becard Tufted Flycatcher Sulphur-bellied Flycatcher Hepatic Tanager Violet-crowned Hummingbird And a Texas specialty, Golden-cheeked Warbler
  8. Here's a few more Rivoli's Hummingbird Rivoli's Hummingbird, Ramsey Canyon, AZ by Christopher Clark, on Flickr Canyon Towhee Canyon Towhee, Mt Lemmon, AZ by Christopher Clark, on Flickr Yellow-eyed Junco Yellow-eyed Junco, Mt Lemmon, AZ by Christopher Clark, on Flickr
  9. I'm not sure where we are number-wise, but here's a few (I have more I'll upload to Flickr shortly) Sandwich Tern Sandwich Tern, Fort Pickens, FL by Christopher Clark, on Flickr Least Tern Least Tern, Ft Walton Beach, FL by Christopher Clark, on Flickr Snowy Plover Snowy Plover, Ft Walton Beach, FL by Christopher Clark, on Flickr Eastern Towhee Eastern Towhee, Fort Pickens, FL by Christopher Clark, on Flickr Boat-tailed Grackle Boat-tailed Grackle, Milton, FL by Christopher Clark, on Flickr I apologize for any repeats...
  10. A few days old, but in my defense I just got back from my trip ? Black Skimmer with chicks, Navarre, FL by Christopher Clark, on Flickr
  11. I can agree with Psweet, plus a lot of ducks are molting right now, which can make for some odd looking birds.
  12. Hey everyone! Nice to see the forum back up. Just got back from an extended trip across the US, and had a vireo that's been bugging me. Sadly its a terrible view, and it was so well hidden I didn't even see its head, but managed to get one photo nonetheless. It was taken at Lost Maples Natural Area in Texas, where both White-eyed and Black-capped Vireos can be found. I heard the bird singing, even recorded it, but to make matters worse the recording didn't catch the bird singing at all! I was maybe leaning Black-capped, due to the yellowish tinge to the wing bars, which White-eyeds don't seem to have, but I'm not sure if it can even be called ? Any help would be appreciated...
