  1. Thanks everyone. After many different IDs from many smart peeps, I'm going with a Common Grackle fledgling. The Bird Nuts is the winner! Thank you EVERYONE for helping me ID this common, tail-less fledgling in my Orlando backyard. I really do appreciate you all. May God bless you and keep you safe out on the trail!
  2. Thanks everyone. I've copied and posted back on Flickr to my two birder friends your four comments. We'll see if they respond. God bless you all for helping me as you always do. I've been birding 12 years now, and even through four cancer battles and chemobrain, I've learned so much. I couldn't have done it without you Peeps. God bless you each and every onel
  3. Thanks Tanager 101 and The Bird Nuts. I appreciate it. I heard from my two professional birders one here (I call him The Professor as he knows everything about every bird, bug, etc.) and one from Canada who travels the world birding. Lets see if this will paste: I'm pretty sure I agree with them that it's a fledgling (baby) American Crow. Thanks to you both for your help. I really appreciate you. Wayne Kennedy I fairly certain it is a baby crow. If you go to google and do "baby crow" then click on images, you well see some that look very much like this (and one that looks exactly like this one including the lost of tail.) Wonderful four photo combination showing the bird from all sides. Feather detail is nice and sharp. Eye and bill are clearly shown along with head color and feather detail different than other feathers on the bird. Foot placement is marvelous. Well done. Love this montage, Nancy! I agree with Wayne that it's a baby crow. I also used the Merlin photo ID app just to double check and it showed American Crow right away. Lovely sharp images and great catchlights in the eyes ?

  5. We usually have Boat-tailed Grackles here. No tail ... bless its heart. Thank so much If I here different from any of the Florida peeps who know more than I do, I'll let you know. God bless you and yours. Stay safe and sound! Miss Nancy
  6. Hey there, Peeps. I've missed you. Been battling cancer again. Anyway, backyard bird (tail-less) photo taken on May 23, 2022. Orlando, Central Florida. It doesn't look like a baby Crow or Grackle or anything I know (and I've gotten better over the years). So your help will be greatly appreciated. God bless you and yours and thank you for helping this sick, old broad! Nancy Smith DSC_1254.NEFDSC_1254.NEF
  7. HamRHead I think you're exactly right. I thought that maybe it was, but I've only seen one once. How cool is that. Glad I didn't blow it off and not work on the photos. Thank you sooooooooooo much.
  8. I've been injured and sick for so long, I can't remember when the last time was I asked ya'll for ID help. Plus, you've taught me so well over the years. But this one's got me stumped. In the sprinkler in the front yard Orlando FL October 20, 2021 (fall migration for us still I guess). I had a Northern Parula that day, and initially thought these last couple of shots were of that bird. But now that I have processed them and put them in a collage, I'm not so sure. Help, please. And may God bless you and yours and I pray that you have been safe and well.
  9. Wow, thanks so much. I haven't had my feeders up for years. Had some pox problems and lost a few of my beautiful House Finch visitors back then. Thanks so much. I miss this group so much. Haven't been able to get out there on photo adventures ...
  10. July 12, 2019 Central Florida USA (Orlando) Using a "painted" photo, hope it's okay. Sorry. PS I haven't been on here in awhile, horrible health. I see now I can drag and drop in a .jpeg photo rather than one of my Flickr painted ones. Yeah. Anyway, two of these little beauties flew in to my backyard this week interested in the feeder area. About as big as Tufted Titmouse. I for the life of me don't know what they are? Maybe House Finches, although I haven't had them back there in years? Thanks. https://www.flickr.com/photos/nancysmith133/48321898551/in/dateposted-public/
  11. Thanks so much. That's what I thought but couldn't find anything on her. I've got another shot, with so much white on the back, but I think it is also another Bobolink. Is the gang still all here? I'm used to getting (in the old days) multiple replies so fast? Anyway, thank you, akiley, so very much.
  12. Goodness ... this is the first time I've been on here since the big crash? Is anyone out there anymore?
  13. Hi there. I've missed you all. Working on my Flickr album for Lake Apopka North Shore Wildlife Drive (Central Florida) from last April. This shot is while I was chasing hundreds of Bobolinks near the sod fields. There was also a life bird for me (Yellow-brested Chat woohoo) but don't know what this beauty is. I might have a couple of more soon for this one part of my Creation adventure. Thanks in advance ... my health is awful, but what would I have ever done without you guys all these years I just don't know. Thanks. WhatBird.com ID help by Nancy Smith, on Flickr
