  1. I don't think our Blue Jays really like them either. Maybe I made this too hard...
  2. Oh, sorry. Didn't realize you don't have any where you live. I'll try to make it so you'll be able to participate in the next one.
  3. How about a photo challenge? Whoever posts their photo of the subject first wins. The one rule is that your photos must be taken after the subject(s) are posted. The first challenge is to take a photo of a jay (any kind) perched on a powerline. GO!
  4. @Jodi Nielson Those are two different birds. The first is a young Red-shouldered and the last one you posted is an adult.
  5. The first bird appears to be a Cliff Swallow with the pale collar and slightly notched tail. The rest look good for Barn Swallows.
  6. We've been here long enough to know that the size of birds is very often completely misjudged. There once was a three-foot-tall Red-tailed Hawk, for example...
  7. I agree with Tony that it is likely something like a raven, with the yellowish color being light reflecting off of the feathers and not plumage coloration.
  8. Agree with Song Sparrow. Savannahs are more of a tan color with shorter tails and thinner pink beaks.
  9. Thanks, but I still can't see much. I think if the OP cropped the original photo it would be a little better.
  10. Pretty sure it's not a Rough-legged Hawk - they have a wide dark terminal tail band. I don't have much experience with other dark morph hawks, but I'm guessing Red-tailed based on the tail pattern.
  11. Yellow-rumped. Notice the yellow patch on the side of the breast.
  12. Yes, looks like a Runner duck, which is a domestic breed of Mallard. This one could be pure runner or be crossed with a wild Mallard or be crossed with another domestic Mallard.
  13. Welcome to the forum! That looks like a Cooper's Hawk to me.
  14. Looks like a Lucy's Warbler (notice the reddish crown).
  15. Black-capped Chickadee foraging among the willow catkins.
  16. Pretty sure it's not a starling, it seems too loud and accurate of a hawk sound. I suppose it could be a Blue Jay, if you are sure that it came from a small bird.
  17. Duplicate post. https://forums.whatbird.com/index.php?/topic/9213-vireo/
  18. That is actually a Tennessee Warbler. Note the lack of wingbars, the gray head with dark eyeline and white supercilium, the white underside, and the green back.
