  1. You have two House Sparrows - a male with its head in the feeder in the first photo, and a juvenile in the second photo. There is a House Finch in photos 1, 3, and 4.
  2. Welcome to the forum! That is a Cedar Waxwing. Don't forget to include the general location and the date next time - they can be helpful in narrowing down the possibilities.
  3. Song and tone (is that the right word?) are both good for Carolina Wren.
  4. Looks better for a Savannah Sparrow. Songs are a warmer, redder brown color and they have gray beaks and cheeks.
  5. I agree with female Northern Cardinals. The second bird looks like it's molting (cardinals molt all of their head feathers) and the third one appears to have avian pox.
  6. Yep, Golden-crowned. Check out the pencil mustache. 😁
  7. 1, 3, and 4 are Greater Yellowlegs. 2 is another Yellowlegs, and I'm thinking Lesser, but I'm not sure.
  8. I'd call it a Cooper's Hawk based on the blocky, flat-topped head and the nape that is lighter than the cap.
  9. With the tan-colored face/streaking, white eyering, and pinkish beak, this is a Vesper Sparrow.
  10. Here's an example of how the gold patch on the nape wraps around the neck. The nape (and the leading edges of the wings) is surprisingly bright on sunny days.
  11. Yep, Golden Eagle. Shape, light nape, and brownish base to tail are spot on. Very familiar with them now as we see them every winter here, about as often as we see Bald Eagles.
  12. Sometimes I'll think for a second that a large white bird flew by my window when it was actually a normal crow with its feathers shining very brightly in the sun. Could that be what it was?
  13. House Finch (thick brown streaking on the belly, white wingbars).
  14. I agree with Cooper's. The head shape, with the flat top that is even with the beak, also says Cooper's.
