  2. I learned mostly myself as I already had experience with acrylics, so I don't know of something for beginners. But my favorite watercolorist on YouTube is Steve Mitchell of The Mind of Watercolor. Watching him paint might help you understand how watercolor works and the way it should be layered, etc. He also gives recommendations for supplies. Happy painting!! Watercolors are so much fun!
  3. Note the prominent plain gray area around the neck.
  4. This ^ Distinctive black and white wing pattern on the hawks.
  5. I can see the shorter outer tail feathers on this one as @lonestranger pointed out. Looks good for a Coop.
  6. My first impression was Cooper's - it just seems too bulky for a Sharpie. Any other shots?
  7. Solitary Sandpipers have white spots on their backs/wings while Spotted Sandpipers have spots on their bellies but in breeding plumage only. There are also subtle differences in facial pattern and bill color and length. You photographed nonbreeding Spotteds.
  8. Note the all-black bill, faint wingbars, sharp contrast between the dark head and white throat, and the lack of an eyering. Gray Flycatchers are a lighter green-gray and have prominent white wing bars, white edges on the wing feathers, white eyerings, and orange mandibles.
  9. I was already upset by the change from Northern Goshawk to American Goshawk. I hate changes like this. Because all my lists, my photos, my artwork, even my blog posts will be incorrect and that really bothers me. I will probably end up going through ALL my stuff and changing the names because I'm weird like that.

  13. IMO, the bill color is just fine for a tanager, considering the lighting.
  14. Yeah, all Eastern Wood-Pewees. An Eastern Phoebe would have shorter primary projection, a plumper, stockier build, subtler wingbars, and clean undertail coverts.
  15. I look for the prominent plain gray supercilium and neck, rufous back/wings, and plain buff sides.

  17. I agree with Cooper's. The small eye is well forward and the top of the bill is flush with the top of the head.
