  1. I believe the Orange-crowned Warblers in your area would have gray heads, but there are also differences in body shape/proportions, bill size and shape, and face pattern (OCWAs have eyelines and pale supralorals). The last photos you posted are of a young male Common Yellowthroat (note the long pink legs and dark mask coming in)
  2. #2 is an Orange-crowned Warbler (no strong eyeline, soft streaking on the breast, rounder body). I agree with the other two.
  3. Well, to be fair, I did find a few photos of Blackpolls that have pretty yellow feet. Most seemed to be adults in breeding plumage, but I don't know if that makes a difference.
  4. It has no streaking on the back, so I'd say it's a Pine.
  5. Sure, blue feet can look grayish in the shade. Below I took the colors directly off of photos of these birds' feet in the sun.
  6. I don't know why people say Blackpolls have yellow feet because they're clearly orange to me. 🙃
  7. Agreed, Red-shouldered with the thin pale tail bands.
  8. 1-3. Golden-crowned Sparrow 4-5. Pine Siskin 6. Another Pine Siskin? 7-9. Song Sparrow
  9. Purple Finch (female or young male).
  10. Hermit Thrush in Vermont.
  11. Immatures and nonbreeding adults lack the gray on the head. https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Tennessee_Warbler/id
  12. Yep, Red-tailed. Tail pattern is different (thin dark bands instead of thin pale bands in Red-shouldered) and it lacks the prominent pale barring on the secondaries that a Red-shouldered would have.
  13. Great shots! It has the classic Cooper's head -- flat top that is even with the top of the bill, relatively small eyes toward the front of the head, large size compared to body.
  14. It's at the bottom of the eBird home page when you sign in.
