  1. Assuming this was in Ontario, this would be a young Yellow-bellied Sapsucker. Note the large white patch along the front edge of the wing.
  2. Yes, Great Crested Flycatcher for #1. Both of the damselflies appear to be Ebony Jewelwings (female on top, male on the bottom, I believe).
  3. Yes, Downy on the left and Hairy on the right. Now you have a photo that you can refer to that shows the sizes of both compared to your feeder. ?
  4. Actually, looking at it again, this might be one of the "Purple" subspecies of Common Grackle...I think you should wait for someone who has actually seen Boat-taileds to ID this one.
  5. The beak's too large for a Rusty Blackbird. I think it's a Boat-tailed Grackle that lost its tail.
  6. First album: 1, 4. American Redstarts 2, 3. Wilson's Warbler 5. Northern Parula 6-10. Baltimore Orioles 11,12. Immature male Orchard Oriole (molting into adult plumage, I assume) Second album: 6. Red-winged Blackbird
  7. Broad-winged Hawk, right? Seen in Vermont a few days ago.
  8. Looks like a Pine Warbler. The beak's too thin and pink for a vireo.
  9. The second looks like a Northern Parula. Yellow-throated Vireos have thicker, darker beaks and lack the faint streaking on the breast as well as the blue tones in the face. I think you're correct on the first bird.
  10. Sorry, I would've given you some ID points if I wasn't so bad at explaining! What I usually look at is the compact shape and the muted reddish-brown barring on the breast and belly (on adults). They also have a pretty unique face, but I can't explain why. Eastern Red-taileds are bulkier and have a band of vertical streaks across the belly with a white breast. Red-shouldered Hawks have black and white checkered patterns on the wings, lighter heads, and orange barring on the breast and belly.
