  1. Seen in Fairfax County, VA, on 8 May 2022. Tennessee Warbler?
  2. I can see it now. Many thanks to both of you!
  3. Seen in Fairfax County, VA, on 9 May 2022. Nashville warbler?
  4. Seen in Fairfax County, VA, on 23 April 2022. At first glance, I assumed this/these were newly arrived house wren(s)... they were present on the forest floor for many minutes, and there may be two individuals here. Some photos seem to show a bit of an eye ring and a faint light eyebrow, making me wonder if these might be something else, like a sedge or marsh wren. Greatly appreciate any help identifying these.
  5. Yes, indeed, the photo well-represents the ducks, with heavy shadowing on the left and direct sun on the right. Many thanks!
  6. Seen at Huntley Meadows Park in Fairfax County, VA, on 2 March 2022. American Black Ducks?
  7. thanks to all! I'll keep this one in the mystery bird category.
  8. Seen at Riverbend park in Fairfax County, VA, on 20 September 2021. House Wren or Winter Wren?
  9. Seen at Riverbend Park in Fairfax County, VA, on 24 September 2021. Perhaps a Least Flycatcher?
  10. Seen at Riverbend Park in Fairfax County, VA, on 25 September 2021. Red-Shouldered Hawk?
  11. Seen at Ship Creek in Anchorage, AK, on 27 August 2021. Aleutian var. Cackling Goose or Canada Goose?
  12. Seen at Anchorage, AK, on 2 August 2021. Confirm as a short-billed gull (ex mew gull) ?
  13. These were seen in Fairfax County, VA, on 11 May, and the photos were taken only minutes apart and only a few feet apart, in the same woodpile. At the time, I thought these were all Swainson's Thrushes. Upon close examination, I think that #1 and #2 are a pair of Swainson's Thrushes, while photos #3 and #4 (both of a single bird) appear to be an Ovenbird, showing a hint of the dark streaked crest. Confirmed as Swainson's AND Ovenbird?
  14. Many thanks for raising Bicknell's. We're right on the western edge of their migratory route, so it's possible. Since this one was seen through a glass window at a distance, IDing it through song was impossible. I'll rack this one up as Gray-cheeked/Bicknell's. Thanks to all!
  15. Seen at Riverbend Park in Fairfax County, VA, on 6 May. Confirm Eastern Phoebe?
  16. Three thrushes in photos below/attached, all seen in the same brush pile in Fairfax, VA, on 7 May 2021. I believe today's photos are (1) Wood Thrush, (2) Gray-Cheeked Thrush, and (3) Swainson's Thrush. Great appreciate any help on these. Thanks!
  17. Seen on the forest floor in Fairfax County, VA, on 3 May. Confirmed Veery?
  18. Six individual birds, seen at the Corn Creek Visitor Center of the Desert National Wildlife Refuge near Las Vegas, NV, on 25 April 2019. In one case, one of these was so accustomed to people that it was hunting insects in the air only feet from us, flying circles around us. Are these all Ash-throated Flycatchers, or are others like Duskys also in the mix?
  19. Seen at Floyd Lamb Park Near Las Vegas, NV, on 25 April 2019. #1 an Anna's and #2 a Black-chinned?
