  1. Why do you think the first bird is a Yellow-rumped? I have already given reasons why I think it is not.
  2. Palm Warbler. A Yellow-rumped Warbler would not have yellow undertail coverts like this bird has. The rump on a bird is in the lower back area at the base of the tail.
  3. Then there is no need to respond. I think it's best to refrain from responding to a topic if you are not sure of the answer, especially if it brings old topics that have already been solved to the top above the newer, unanswered topics. Keeping threads as short as possible also avoids confusion (at least for me! ? ).
  4. I'm not sure, but with the amount of barring on the wings, I'm leaning juvenile.
  5. Brown head and back, weak wingbars, black beak - Eastern Phoebe. Eastern Wood-Pewees are greener/grayer with longer primary projection and stronger wingbars.
  6. 1. Common Nighthawk (note white bars near wingtips) 2. Merlin
  7. Did it look like this? http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-laD82GywYyQ/UMCUAF2lyxI/AAAAAAAAASQ/dF0pZApbw9g/s1600/SE124997RBGR-nicest-2.jpg
  8. All dark feet, buffy flanks, soft streaking - looks like a Bay-breasted Warbler.
  9. Yes, Magnolia Warbler. That tail pattern is distinctive.
  10. I'm pretty sure no Pine has yellow/green in the wings. The short tail, thin wingbars, and small-eyed look also make me think Cape May.
  11. Broad-wingeds have shorter tails with different tail patterns (fewer wider tail bands as adults and more thinner tail bands as juveniles). This is an Accipiter and I'm leaning Cooper's.
