  1. Sadly, I don't think we can really tell how long the tail is from that photo. But my guess is Savannah based on the facial coloration (clean, tinted yellow, tan cheeks), the relatively thin pink beak, and the tan back (as opposed to reddish brown in Songs).
  2. Yeah, looks like a Bewick's with its tail cut off.
  3. You are correct, it is a juvenile sparrow (note the fleshy gape). Do you have a photo showing the length of the tail?
  4. Okay, that makes sense. HERE is another photo of one like that.
  5. That is an Eastern Phoebe. I've seen at least a couple photos of them with that odd, dark, nearly featherless patch on the belly before, but I don't know what causes it.
  6. Oh, and an Acadian Flycatcher would also be greener with an orange lower mandible plus a white eyering.
  7. The beak appears to be completely black and the brownish color looks better for an Eastern Phoebe to me. The cinnamon wingbars are indicative of a youngster. Eastern Wood-Pewees have longer primary projection and both Wood-Pewees and Traill's are usually a more green/gray color and have orange lower mandibles.
  8. I agree with Indigo Bunting. I think it might be a young one, though.
  9. Rough-legged Hawks have "belly bands" as well but theirs are more solid rather than streaked. Also, light morph Roughies tend to have lighter-colored heads and smaller beaks than Red-taileds.
  10. Juvenile Pine Warbler... ...and a Monarch. Monarch by The Bird Nuts, on Flickr
  11. Juveniles tend to be darker than the adults. http://www.backyardwilderness.net/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/2011_06_21-120W.jpg http://www.nejohnston.org/birds/2013/09/Images/IMG_3643.jpg
