  1. Oh, and an Acadian Flycatcher would also be greener with an orange lower mandible plus a white eyering.
  2. The beak appears to be completely black and the brownish color looks better for an Eastern Phoebe to me. The cinnamon wingbars are indicative of a youngster. Eastern Wood-Pewees have longer primary projection and both Wood-Pewees and Traill's are usually a more green/gray color and have orange lower mandibles.
  3. I agree with Indigo Bunting. I think it might be a young one, though.
  4. Rough-legged Hawks have "belly bands" as well but theirs are more solid rather than streaked. Also, light morph Roughies tend to have lighter-colored heads and smaller beaks than Red-taileds.
  5. Juvenile Pine Warbler... ...and a Monarch. Monarch by The Bird Nuts, on Flickr
  6. Juveniles tend to be darker than the adults. http://www.backyardwilderness.net/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/2011_06_21-120W.jpg http://www.nejohnston.org/birds/2013/09/Images/IMG_3643.jpg
  7. Carolina Wren. It would be very unusual to see a Bewick's in New Jersey, especially nesting.
  8. Northern Flickers (yellow-shafted variety).
  9. Bill shape and size, head and body shape, and color are all wrong for a flycatcher. I'm thinking this is an Indigo Bunting.
  10. I am pretty confident. The 4th photo (of the face) especially looks like a Pine Warbler. Yellow-throated Vireos not only have larger bills, they have larger eyes and a more contrasting face pattern. Your bird also appears to have orange feet which rules out vireos (which have blue feet).
  11. I can't really say how many we see on average. We see a lot more raptors during the spring, fall, and winter months. In the summer we maybe see one raptor (mainly Red-tailed, Broad-winged, or Cooper's) every other day.
  12. Pretty sure it's a juvenile (notice the fleshy gape), and I agree with Baltimore.
