  1. These were seen in pine scrub forest in Estero, FL, on 17 April 2023. I suspect these are a Pine Warbler, a Cape May Warbler, and a very bad photo of a Gray-Checked Thrush. Greatly appreciate any help with these.
  2. See very briefly in a scrub pine forest in Estero, FL, on 14 March 2023. Greatly appreciate any help with this one!
  3. Seen at Audubon Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, FL, on 18 November 2022, within a mixed flock of blue-gray gnatcatchers, white-eyed vireos, pine warblers, and black-and-white warblers. Is this one a palm warbler? An orange-crowned warbler? Greatly appreciate help.
  4. Many thanks to all for the confirmations. I had to run and dodge through a pool area to get the shot before this one flew out of view. In this particular neighborhood, filled with soaring vultures, storks, the odd short-tailed hawk, etc., it was particularly important to get confirmations from experts on this shot. As for the debate on short versus long answers, allow me to offer the novice's opinion. I greatly appreciate detailed responses, especially when experts use the response as a teaching moment regarding subtleties of IDs. That said, I know that some of you experts are plowing through huge numbers of postings and are attempting to cover as much territory as possible. That being the case, I greatly appreciate even the shortest of answers. Thanks to you all for the effort you put into this platform! It's a game-changer for new birders.
  5. Many thanks to all! This is the first brown thrasher that I've seen in FL, and the first juvenile that I've ever seen.
  6. Many thanks to all! This was only the 2nd one I've seen ever.
  7. Seen soaring above Estero, FL, on 22 October 2022. Short-Tailed Hawk light morph?
  8. Location correction: seen at Estero Bay Scrub Preserve, not the nearby Koreshan State Park.
  9. Seen at Koreshan State Park in Estero, FL, on 3 July 2022. Juvenile brown thrasher?
  10. Seen at Estero, FL, on 23 October 2022. Juvenile bald eagle?
  11. Seen in Fairfax County, VA, on 8 May 2022. Tennessee Warbler?
  12. Seen in Fairfax County, VA, on 9 May 2022. Nashville warbler?
  13. 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.
  14. Yes, indeed, the photo well-represents the ducks, with heavy shadowing on the left and direct sun on the right. Many thanks!
  15. Seen at Huntley Meadows Park in Fairfax County, VA, on 2 March 2022. American Black Ducks?
  16. thanks to all! I'll keep this one in the mystery bird category.
  17. Seen at Riverbend park in Fairfax County, VA, on 20 September 2021. House Wren or Winter Wren?
  18. Seen at Riverbend Park in Fairfax County, VA, on 24 September 2021. Perhaps a Least Flycatcher?
  19. Seen at Riverbend Park in Fairfax County, VA, on 25 September 2021. Red-Shouldered Hawk?
  20. Seen at Ship Creek in Anchorage, AK, on 27 August 2021. Aleutian var. Cackling Goose or Canada Goose?
