  1. 2-4 are Song Sparrows. Can't see #1 well enough to be certain, but I think it's a young Song.
  2. The first two are juveniles (cinnamon wingbars and yellow gape flange).
  3. All look good for Eastern Phoebes. Eastern Wood-Pewees are greener above and they have longer primaries and orange lower mandibles.
  4. Correct on the Clark's Nutcracker. The swallow is a Violet-green.
  5. Yeah, I think young Hooded Merganser.
  6. It used to be that people using mobile devices couldn't see the tags. Not sure if that has changed, but that made me not feel the need to use them.
  7. Why not put this in the "Birds and Birding" section (if there is going to be one)? I wouldn't say this is off topic.
  8. Looks like a young Mallard to me.
  9. This looks fine for a young Brown-headed Cowbird to me. Young mockingbirds lack the streaking on the back and are grayer with lighter bellies and white markings on the wings and tail.
  10. There are a few Alder Flycatcher reports in the area (https://ebird.org/map/aldfly?neg=true&env.minX=&env.minY=&env.maxX=&env.maxY=&zh=false&gp=false&ev=Z&mr=1-12&bmo=1&emo=12&yr=all&byr=1900&eyr=2018), but I think Willow is more likely given the location and plumage of this one.
  11. The flycatcher looks like a Traill's (Willow/Alder). I agree with Red-winged Blackbird and Brown-headed Cowbird (both juveniles).
  12. 1. Common Yellowthroat 2. Juvenile Eastern Towhee 3. Great Crested Flycatcher
  13. I tend to agree with Charlie, I would prefer people limit their requests to three birds per post, but if most people vote five then I won't complain. I'm asking the same question. I would much rather people submit five posts with one bird ID in each than one post with five birds to ID. And it appears an "if" needs to be inserted between "especially" and "your" in this sentence. :) Everything else looks good to me!
  14. I agree with Indigo Bunting. Not sure what the first bird is either...
  15. The tail length and pale crescents near the wingtips are both good for immature Red-shouldered. I think prominent barring on the flight feathers might point to RSHA as well.
  16. Yep, House Wren. Remember to include location and date.
  17. That is the sun shining on the tip of the tail. The rest of the tail is in the shadow of the roof eave.
