  1. Eastern Phoebe (brown color above, completely black beak, no eyering). It appears to be a juvenile due to the visible gape flange and the cinnamon wingbars.
  2. Cooper's Hawk with the light nape and blocky, flat-topped head (and gray cheeks which makes it a male).
  3. I'm thinking this is a fledgling Red-winged Blackbird that hasn't grown feathers on its face yet. Like this: https://www.flickr.com/photos/feltonphoto/7324816742
  4. Oh, sorry about that, I thought you needed help narrowing it down since you didn't say what you thought it was in the post. 😳
  5. It's an Empid. Hopefully someone with some western flycatcher experience can tell you which one it is.
  6. Yeah, but I don't really like any of them. πŸ˜•
  7. Before I listened to the recording, when I read "but it seems it is something else that shares the same habitat" I immediately thought Field Sparrow. Sure enough it is the Field Sparrow's bouncing ball song. πŸ™‚
  8. Yes, no stripes as in malar stripes and they also lack the streaking on the breast and flanks. Savannahs are not as boldly patterned above - they are a more uniform brown color on the face and wings.
  9. Yeah, that's good. Although Sharpies have the same color cap and nape, but I get why you wrote head instead.
  10. Cooper's with the dark cap that contrasts with the light nape, long head projection, and shorter outer tail feathers.
  11. I think it's a Western Wood-Pewee (large beak, long wings, no eyering).
  12. Yaaaaay! Glad you're back as moderator! ☺️
  13. There is a dot (or star if you've posted in that thread) at the left of the topic title that brings you to the first unread post in that thread.
  14. I don't think it sounds like a Ruby-crowned Kinglet - they make more of a "ch-cha ch-cha" sound. They shouldn't be in Texas right now anyway (assuming this was heard recently).
