  1. I think it looks fine for a young Common, proportion- and plumage-wise. Always remember to include location. :)
  2. The only reliable way to differentiate Fish and American Crows (other than by length of certain primaries in flight) is by voice.
  3. Both are Mallards. The one on the right is a male (note the yellow bill) and the one on the left is a female/immature.
  4. Paying attention to bird behavior is a big part of birding. I'd take a guess that this bird was wagging its tail up and down, something an Eastern Kingbird wouldn't do.
  5. Then Carolina Wren it is! They are such cute, comical birds.
  6. Carolina Wrens are known for roosting in the corners of buildings with their back feathers puffed out like this. Remember to include location so we can rule out other species.
  7. Thinking Painted Bunting for #2 and I can confirm Yellow Warbler for #3.
  8. Looks better for a Broad-winged with the short tail, wide tail bands, and dark trailing edge on the wings.
  9. 1. Magnolia Warbler 2. Black-throated Green Warbler 3. Blackburnian Warbler 4. Blue-gray Gnatcatcher 5. Eastern Phoebe 6. Eastern Wood-Pewee, I think 7. Eastern Phoebe 8. I think you're correct
  10. Witnessed a spectacular show this evening - 13 Chimney Swifts plus several Common Nighthawks.
