  1. I agree with Ruby-crowned Kinglet. Besides differences in beak shape, eyering shape, and posture, kinglets are much more active than flycatchers.
  2. 1. Tennessee Warbler (extensive yellow color and no wingbars) 2. Palm Warbler (yellow undertail coverts and no white wingbars) 3. Blackpoll Warbler (streaking on the back) 4. Swamp Sparrow (gray collar and rich brown shoulder) 5. Scarlet Tanager (extensive yellow color and thick beak) 6. Yes, Red-eyed Vireo 7. Yes, Blue-headed Vireo 8. Yes, Scarlet Tanager 9. Red-eyed Vireo (large beak and white throat)
  3. Agree with Northern Waterthrush (dense streaking, thin supercilium).
  4. Gray belly and no orange on the sides of the neck - looks like a Western Bluebird to me.
  5. The weak wingbars, medium-length primary projection, brown color, and overall shape look better for Eastern Phoebe.
  6. Apparently not all of them... http://www.lloydspitalnikphotos.com/v/warblers/nashville_warbler/nashville_warbler_F5R5280.jpg.html
  7. I think Northern Waterthrush as well (which is not a thrush but a warbler).
  8. This is an immature European Starling that is molting into nonbreeding adult plumage.
  9. Dark eyeline and malar stripe -- this looks like a Chipping Sparrow. Nonbreeding Chipping Sparrows have pink beaks.
  10. Green cap and dark lores - looks like a Hooded Warbler.
  11. Looks better for an immature male Common Yellowthroat to me.
  12. The chunky shape and markings rule out all falcons and Accipiters. Prairie Falcons are much smaller with proportionately larger heads and eyes. Northern Harriers have distinct owl-like faces and relatively slim bodies. Accipiters are also slimmer/more elongated.
  13. I think this is a good guess, possibly juveniles. https://www.google.com/search?q=juvenile+cedar+waxwing&client=firefox-b-1&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjS_snOmr3dAhVjQt8KHfnvD4gQ_AUIDigB&biw=1600&bih=770&dpr=1.2
