  1. Sorry, just a couple more questions to narrow down the options: Did you see it eating sunflower seeds? Was its posture more vertical (like a goldfinch) or horizontal (like a chickadee)?
  2. Where was the striping? On the breast, head, back, wings, or all of the above?
  3. Where was the striping on the bird and was it horizontal or vertical? Also, what was its behavior (staying on the feeder while it ate, frequently flying to and from the feeder, climbing on or clinging upside down on the feeder, etc.)?
  4. Fantastic @sbruenjes! You get to choose the next photo challenge!
  5. To be honest, I thought American Dipper for a split second, too. The shape is surprisingly similar!
  6. It's a Rusty Blackbird. I think someone's monitor needs to be brightened a bit. :)
  7. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought gray cheeks eliminated Sharpie and meant that it was a male Cooper's. My first impression was actually small Coop and I don't really see a dark nape.
  8. Browner/peachier color and larger eyes point to American.
  9. Agreed. Sharpies have pale eyes and lack the dark stripe on the cheek.
  10. It's BBCode, which doesn't work on this forum anymore. Just copy the text that is in between the [img] and [/img] tags and paste it into the address bar to see the photo.
  11. My impression is Cooper's - long neck, body, and tail.
  12. I agree with Cooper's. Blocky head, relatively small eye, beefy feet, obviously graduated tail feathers.
  13. Yes, Audubon's Yellow-rumped Warbler. Common Yellowthroats lack streaking on the flanks and any pale edging on the wing feathers, and they are more of a greenish-brown color overall.
  14. I really can't tell from these photos. I'm pretty sure #1 is a Pine Siskin.
  15. That is a Cooper's with the long tail, pale eyes, and clean, thin streaking on the breast.
  16. It appears to have an orange bill, so I'm going to go with Nazca Booby.
