  1. Juveniles can be difficult to ID. What kind of habitat?
  2. Original post: https://forums.whatbird.com/index.php?/topic/6000-i-dunno/
  3. I believe the lack of feathers at the base of the bill is making it look longer than normal.
  4. 1-2. Yes, Great Crested Flycatchers 3,5. Yellow-rumped Warbler 4. Downy Woodpecker with the black barring on the white tail feathers
  5. Are you able to get a photo? Also, where are you located?
  6. The first is a Western Wood-Pewee (by range) with the extremely long primary projection.
  7. The code is SAVS (so it won't be confused with Saltmarsh or Sagebrush Sparrow). 🙂
  8. Hmm...you might be right. Don't know why I didn't think of that. It does look a bit chunkier than a Wood-Pewee.
  9. Broad-winged Hawk (short, compact body, solid dark brown back and head, dark rufous barring on breast, wide black and white tail bands).
  10. It is a young sparrow, but it's not a Song Sparrow. I'm leaning young Savannah.
  11. Red-winged Blackbirds have pale bars below their red epaulets which can appear white. Sometimes the red epaulets are hidden and only the pale bar is visible.
  12. Actually, birds seem to do just fine without their tails. I've seen plenty of tailless birds and none of them appeared to have any trouble getting around.
  13. Western Wood-Pewee (big bill, no eyering, weak wingbars, small eye).
  14. I'm not sure cardinals make single note calls like that. I want to call it a Baltimore Oriole. I don''t know what the sharp chip call is.
