  1. Blackburnians don't have that dense of streaking on the breast and their facial patterns are more distinct with a light supercilium. This is a Cape May Warbler.
  2. Eastern Wood-Pewee. The extremely long primary projection is a good field mark.
  3. You're correct, it's a Magnolia. Northern Parulas do not have yellow bellies and they lack the two black streaks on the flanks.
  4. Looks good for a Purple Finch to me with the purple in the wings and lack of brown streaking on the flanks.
  5. The second is a Blackpoll and I think the others might be as well.
  6. View from Snake Mountain, Addison, VT.
  7. I would expect to see an eyering on a Yellow-bellied. How about Eastern Wood-Pewee?
  8. Orange-crowned Warblers have smaller, pointier bills and faint eyelines and superciliums. I think this is a Common Yellowthroat.
  9. Yes, both are Eastern Wood-Pewees (very long primary projection, prominent wingbars, gray vest, peaked head). I guess it is young-ish with those buffy wingbars which might also be why it doesn't have an orange lower mandible.
  10. Nice photo! These guys are not easy to photograph.
  11. Yes, Northern Parula on the right and tanager, I think Summer, on the left.
  12. Faint streaks on dull yellow breast, streaked back, two white wingbars on gray wings, orange feet, dark eyeline - Blackpoll Warbler.
  13. 1. Indigo Bunting, I think 2. Bay-breasted Warbler 3. Not sure...it's hard to see... 4. Yes, Chipping
  14. I agree with TooFly -- Rose-breasted Grosbeak, Eastern Wood-Pewee, and Black-and-white Warbler.
  15. Oh, I agree with White-throated Sparrow and Yellow-billed Cuckoo. The White-throated Sparrow is a rather dark individual (maybe it's young), but I don't think it has a yellow throat; I think the color is a reflection.
  16. I'd say the first bird is a drab Cape May Warbler with the thin beak, small head, and yellow in the wings.
  17. Good questions. I'm afraid I am not very good at aging or sexing birds (especially in the fall!). I hope someone else can give you the answers.
  18. Canada Warbler (eyering, "necklace", yellow lores) and, I think, Bay-breasted Warbler (dark feet, plain buffy flanks).
  19. All of them appear to have a peak at the back of the head, so I'd lean toward all being Lessers.
