  1. Eastern Wood-Pewee, which is a species of flycatcher. Note the long primary projection (measured from the secondaries to the tips), the gray color overall, the gray vest, the peaked head, and the relatively small eye with no eyering.
  2. I'm leaning toward Bay-breasted on this one. The streaking is a bit more prominent than I would expect to see on an Orange-crowned and the color is more tan-yellow rather than greenish-yellow. It's not a Pine - they have dark cheeks, more prominent eye arcs, and blurrier streaking.
  3. Yellow-rumped Warbler. Note the brown color above and white throat and belly with white eye arcs and dense gray streaking on the sides of the breast and flanks. The yellow patches on the sides of the breast are hard to see in the photos, but I think they're still there.
  4. That is a young Sharp-shinned Hawk. They are a bit more compact with rounder heads and larger eyes than Cooper's Hawks and they have denser, blotchier streaking than a Cooper's at this age.
  5. If you are finding them dead fairly close to the house they may be hitting a window (or windows).
  6. I meant that I didn't think it was green enough to be an Acadian. Sorry for the confusion! Isn't it a little large-headed for a Wood-Pewee, though? Is it possible that it is molting making the primary projection look longer?
  7. Okay, thanks! I thought it might not be green enough, but I don't have any experience with Acadian, so I thought I'd ask.
  8. It seems to have quite a prominent eyering. Could it be an Acadian?
  9. Welcome to the forum! This is a Tennessee Warbler. Note the dark eyeline, the pointy bill, and the green back and gray head. It appears to be molting, so it has a mix of both breeding and nonbreeding/immature plumage.
  10. Welcome to Whatbird! You are correct, that is an Orange-crowned Warbler.
  11. I agree that it looks better for a young Pine.
  12. Looks like a young Pine Warbler to me (pale eye arcs, pale wingbars, dark cheeks, yellowish supraloral, solid brownish back, pale yellow below).
