  1. I'm thinking juvenile Field Sparrow because of the plain face, long tail, and very fine streaking.
  2. Thanks. Looks like it's Grants Pass, Oregon. Didn't realize that was the location name... ?
  3. I'm thinking the OP (zeunak) was either seeing the black stripe that is between the eye and nostril (shown in your photo and the photos I linked to) or just the nostril which I guess could look dark in certain lighting. I could be wrong, I don't know how well the OP could see the bird. :)
  4. Hmm... Not sure if those links are going to work. I meant to link to this one: https://bloximages.newyork1.vip.townnews.com/fredericknewspost.com/content/tncms/assets/v3/editorial/c/96/c967dcd4-a481-52f7-9f30-aaeec511f24b/569fded271d04.image.jpg And this one: https://usercontent2.hubstatic.com/5223407_f520.jpg
  5. Sounds like a Turkey Vulture to me. Take a look at these photos HERE and HERE and the others on Google. As we always say, size can be difficult to judge.
  6. I think it's a Savannah without yellow supralorals.
  7. This is a young Cooper's Hawk. Remember to include date and location next time to help narrow down the possibilities. :)
  8. Yes, looks good for an Orchard Oriole.
  9. I think it's just an adult male Mallard molting into nonbreeding plumage.
  10. Ah, I hadn't noticed you had written "This bird was found outside our front door on it's side". It must've collided with something...that's too bad. :(
  11. Agree, Red-tailed with that band of streaks around the belly. The light eyes plus the barred tail are indicative of a youngster.
  12. Pine Siskins are known to be tame. Unless it looks lethargic or has very ruffled feathers, it's probably fine.
  13. At this time there is no subforum for birds outside of North America, so I think you should be fine. The edit feature has changed -- you are not able to edit posts after five minutes or so.
  14. Why not a N. Rough-winged? It doesn't have a well-defined light throat which I would expect to see on a Tree Swallow at any age.
  15. Juvenile Pied-billed Grebes have striped heads.
