  1. Bill shape and size, head and body shape, and color are all wrong for a flycatcher. I'm thinking this is an Indigo Bunting.
  2. I am pretty confident. The 4th photo (of the face) especially looks like a Pine Warbler. Yellow-throated Vireos not only have larger bills, they have larger eyes and a more contrasting face pattern. Your bird also appears to have orange feet which rules out vireos (which have blue feet).
  3. I can't really say how many we see on average. We see a lot more raptors during the spring, fall, and winter months. In the summer we maybe see one raptor (mainly Red-tailed, Broad-winged, or Cooper's) every other day.
  4. Pretty sure it's a juvenile (notice the fleshy gape), and I agree with Baltimore.
  5. #2 is a Lincoln's Sparrow (gray base color on face, buffy malar, thin streaking on buffy breast and flanks, raised crest). I'll let others ID the first since I have no experience with Brewer's.
  6. The second is the call of a Great Crested Flycatcher. I'm not sure what the first one is.
  7. (Because of the brownish plumage, large, light-colored bills, and large rear ends) ?
  8. I think @scall0way is right - one Canada, one domestic Swan Goose (with some domestic Graylag in it), and three domestic Swan/Graylag X Canada Geese hybrids.
  9. The OP's bird is definitely a Chipping Sparrow. American Tree Sparrows have yellow lower mandibles, rufous eyelines, and buffy flanks (and it would be very unusual to see one in the lower 48 in the summer).
  10. Maybe it is a brown domestic type Rock Pigeon (like this one: https://thumbs.dreamstime.com/b/brown-pigeon-walking-dried-grass-57873285.jpg)?
  11. Looks like a Traill's to me. (And the plant is pickerelweed)
  12. I think it's a Summer Tanager. The wings don't seem dark enough and the bill looks too large for a Scarlet.
  13. 1. All are Yellowlegs (Lesser?) 2. Solitary Sandpiper 3. Another Yellowlegs
  14. With the thin streaking on the breast and belly and the graduated tail feathers, this is a young Cooper's Hawk.
  15. I think what you're calling the bill is actually its tail or wing. The color and habitat are perfect for a Prothonotary Warbler.
  16. Sometimes younger birds appear larger than the adults and I think the reason is youngsters tend to be fluffier.
  17. Location would be helpful. They appear to be immature Northern Cardinals; they have darker bills than the adults and often show no crest.
