  1. Looks like a Brewster's Warbler (Golden-winged / Blue-winged hybrid) to me.
  2. No, Barn Swallow fledglings have yellow gapes.
  3. I agree with Barns for the birds in the second photo.
  4. I agree with Hermit Thrush (for both birds). The spots are too dark and large and its face is too brown.
  5. I'm afraid I can't see the photo...But I'm sure akiley is right!
  6. The males and females of this species cannot be told apart by plumage. However, there are two morphs of White-throated Sparrow, the tan-striped (which your bird looks to be) and the white-striped.
  7. The first bird looks like a female Northern Cardinal to me. I think the other is a Brown-headed Cowbird.
  8. Yeah, a Veery wouldn't have that dark malar stripe, so I think it's a Hermit Thrush.
  9. I'd say male Common Merganser on the left and male Ring-necked Duck on the right.
  10. Yeah, Goldens have rounder wings and a different tail shape.
  11. Note the dark brown color on top, the lack of an eyering, and the completely black beak.
  12. That's what was bugging me, but I think it could be looking down (or eating the fish).
  13. I'm thinking young Bald Eagle with a fish in its talons.
  14. Another for young Cooper's Hawk. Red-taileds have much shorter tails, thicker legs, and a band of streaks across the belly with a mostly unstreaked breast.
  15. 1. Pass 2. Looks like a Pine Warbler to me 3. Pass 4. Agree with American Pipit 5. I vote Lesser Scaup (tall head)
  16. No, I'm quite sure it is facing more towards us and it's carrying something light-colored in its beak that is obscuring almost its entire face.
  17. Yeah, the more I look at it the more I think it's a crow. It's definitely a Corvid and not a hawk, eagle, or vulture.
