  1. No streaking on back, bright yellow bellow - Pine Warbler.
  2. 1. Yes, Great Crested Flycatcher 2. American Redstart 3. Western Palm Warbler
  3. Eastern Wood-Pewees have larger, flatter bills, longer primaries, and usually more distinct wingbars than Eastern Phoebes. Eastern Phoebes are usually browner with darker heads than the grayer/greener EAWPs. There are also differences in proportions and posture. Eastern Phoebes perch in more of a hunched position and their eyes tend to look smaller and closer to the bill due to their wider (or deeper) heads.
  4. I thought about that, too, but I think the contrasting facial pattern makes this an adult.
  5. I'd call it a Least. It's mostly gray, the throat is noticeably lighter than the cheeks, and the primaries look short to me. Here's one of our photos of a Yellow-bellied for comparison.
  6. The Yellow-bellied Sapsucker appears to be a black-crowned variant. I love seeing those.
  7. In eBird the Black-headed Gonolek is Laniarius erythrogaster and the Crimson-breasted Gonolek is Laniarius atrococcineus.
  8. This is actually an American Redstart. Vireos have solid gray tails, more distinct face patterns, and hooked bills.
  9. 1. Eastern Phoebe 2. Eastern Wood-Pewee 3. Broad-winged Hawk
  10. I agree with Lincoln's for 1, definite Bay-breasted for 2, and Northern Parula for 3.
  11. No black bib or cap or white cheeks - this is a Tufted Titmouse. @JackieL, have you tried brightening photos using the Flickr Photo Editor?
  12. Ditto. Tail's too short and wings aren't dark enough for an Orchard Oriole. It also doesn't have wingbars or dark feet like an oriole.
  13. That's funny, I don't see any of that. It looks pretty gray, the eyering looks rather weak, and the primaries look like a medium length to me. My impression was Traill's.
  14. With the lack of barring on the secondaries this is a Broad-winged Hawk.
