  1. It works! That's great! So funny when he turns his head toward you. I ran out of "reactions" for the day...
  2. How come ALL the males (with red feathers) I see every late July/August (and not other times of the year) have patches of yellow like this?
  3. @Avery Are you confused by the Flickers or is my video/link not working? I'm not able to view your video yet, but I'm looking forward to seeing it!
  4. This is what I call a Flicker argument. I'm not really sure what they're doing, but it's hilarious! https://photos.app.goo.gl/fhoxP8f2ErbZsc6U7
  5. We went blueberry picking with the Cedar Waxwings.
  6. Hmm...Do you have any more photos? After seeing this thread https://forums.whatbird.com/index.php?/topic/12468-yellow-warbler-what-type-and-is-it-immature/ I'm wondering if Tennessee is better for this one since the eyeline is so dark and the entire bird is very greenish-yellow. Aren't the eastern Orange-crowneds supposed to be more gray?
  7. Females DO have pale yellow irises. It's the juveniles that have darker eyes.
  8. This thread is two years old! Anyway, akiley is correct that this is an Eastern Wood-Pewee - it has no eyering and the bill is too large and the primary projection is too long for both Least and Yellow-bellied among other things. The yellowish wash on the throat and belly is a reflection of whatever is beneath it. Maybe the call that was heard did not come from this particular bird.
  9. Scarlet Tanager molting into nonbreeding plumage.
  10. I think the bill is too thin for a Song, but can we rule out young Swamp? What was the habitat?
  11. Looks like a Red-eyed with that green back. It does appear to be worn and molting (which makes it an adult), but I'm not sure that is the main cause of the missing feathers on the throat.
  12. I'm not sure what it is, but I can tell you it's not a Cedar Waxwing. Cedar Waxwings have shorter, darker tails with a yellow or orange tip and they also lack the pale edging on the wing feathers.
  13. I agree with Eastern Wood-Pewee. The primary projection is the length of the primaries measured from the tips of the secondaries.
  14. It's a Yellow Warbler. Prothonotary Warblers have bluish wings and tails and white undertail coverts and undertails.
  15. Looks like a young Pine Warbler. General location would be helpful.
  16. Cooper's Hawk is correct! Note the dark cap that contrasts with the light gray nape. Adult Sharpies have dark napes.
  17. Good to see they've begun their migration! I'm in Vermont also and I love watching them fly over my house every August.
  18. I was thinking orioles as well. Maybe young Hooded? Sadly, I don't think we can positively identify them with this photo.
  19. Hi Jeff! Welcome to the forum. Yes, you can drag the photo from your computer directly into the comment box and it will automatically embed (jpeg or JPG files work best). If that doesn't work you can try the Choose Files button at the bottom left of the comment box.
