  1. Yes, domestic Mallard. Most of the ducks in the group photo have characteristics of domestic ancestry as well. The wild colored males could be domestic as well, but I don't think there's a way to tell.
  2. I thought it sounded like someone blowing a whistle, like for hunting dogs.....
  3. Yep, Tufted Titmouse. Location and date are always helpful.
  4. 1. Young Broad-winged Hawk (blotchy streaks on upper breast, pale supercilium, dark malar, wider tail bands) 2. With the big head and bill, I think it looks okay for an Olive-sided
  5. I saw in your previous posts that you are in Washington, so I believe this is a Chestnut-backed Chickadee.
  6. Location? I think it's an adult chickadee - they can get really raggedy this time of year working hard raising their chicks. Fledgling chickadees actually have pretty perfect, clean, fluffy feathers and I would think they wouldn't know how to cling to a feeder like that.
  7. Yes, Eastern Kingbird. Black on top, white below, white tail tip.
  8. Agree with Song. Savannahs also have shorter tails and thinner, pink bills.
  9. This is a male Mallard molting into nonbreeding plumage. In the summer, the males lose their colorful feathers and end up looking similar to a female.
  10. Juvenile American Robins have pale eyebrows. See photo here: https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/American_Robin/media-browser/60412981
  11. No, it's the color of the eyering. You know the chicken breed called the Buff Orpington? They are a buffy color, a yellowish-brown.
  12. Buffy describes the color. Buff is a yellowish-brown.
