  1. I agree with Indigo Bunting. I think it might be a young one, though.
  2. 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.
  3. Juvenile Pine Warbler... ...and a Monarch. Monarch by The Bird Nuts, on Flickr
  4. 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
  5. Carolina Wren. It would be very unusual to see a Bewick's in New Jersey, especially nesting.
  6. Northern Flickers (yellow-shafted variety).
  7. Bill shape and size, head and body shape, and color are all wrong for a flycatcher. I'm thinking this is an Indigo Bunting.
  8. 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).
  9. 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.
  10. Pretty sure it's a juvenile (notice the fleshy gape), and I agree with Baltimore.
  11. #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.
  12. The second is the call of a Great Crested Flycatcher. I'm not sure what the first one is.
  13. (Because of the brownish plumage, large, light-colored bills, and large rear ends) ?
