  1. The second is the call of a Great Crested Flycatcher. I'm not sure what the first one is.
  2. (Because of the brownish plumage, large, light-colored bills, and large rear ends) ?
  3. 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.
  4. 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).
  5. Maybe it is a brown domestic type Rock Pigeon (like this one: https://thumbs.dreamstime.com/b/brown-pigeon-walking-dried-grass-57873285.jpg)?
  6. Looks like a Traill's to me. (And the plant is pickerelweed)
  7. I think it's a Summer Tanager. The wings don't seem dark enough and the bill looks too large for a Scarlet.
  8. 1. All are Yellowlegs (Lesser?) 2. Solitary Sandpiper 3. Another Yellowlegs
  9. With the thin streaking on the breast and belly and the graduated tail feathers, this is a young Cooper's Hawk.
  10. I think what you're calling the bill is actually its tail or wing. The color and habitat are perfect for a Prothonotary Warbler.
  11. Sometimes younger birds appear larger than the adults and I think the reason is youngsters tend to be fluffier.
  12. Location would be helpful. They appear to be immature Northern Cardinals; they have darker bills than the adults and often show no crest.
  13. It's mainly the compact shape and dark breast that make me think phoebe.
  14. I wanted to suggest one more thing before you publish this. To make the post stand out more you can add a tag to the title. I believe this is done by typing in a tag (maybe PLEASE READ! or something like that) in the tags box below the title box then selecting that tag in the Item prefix drop down menu.
  15. With the very long primaries, dark vest, faint wingbars, and lack of an eyering, this is a Wood-Pewee, I think Western by range.
