  1. Ignore my previous post about the link issue then. Maybe it has been fixed or maybe it just happens every once in a while. ?
  2. Okay, I'll try it: https://www.flickr.com/photos/birdnuts/ Hmm, it worked!
  3. The "Edited by" message is automatic for me and there is no option to turn it off, but I don't have a problem with that. I do, however, have a problem with the links not turning underlined and blue immediately, although that probably can't be fixed. The only way to make a link work is to submit the post then edit the post and press the space bar or enter key after the URL. Have you noticed that there are "Edited by" messages on all the posts with links?
  4. The sparrow is a juvenile (it still has its fleshy gape) which makes it a lot more difficult to ID.
  5. Looks good for a young American Robin. Location and date are always helpful.
  6. It is not a falcon because of the light eyes and extremely long tail. It's a young Cooper's Hawk (thin streaking, graduated tail feathers).
  7. I'll suggest yellow variant male House Finch: https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1&biw=1600&bih=770&tbm=isch&sa=1&ei=MotOW8vBDo6b_QbioJCgAQ&q=yellow+variant+House+Finch&oq=yellow+variant+House+Finch&gs_l=img.3...
  8. Although they do try to verify as many photos uploaded to Macaulay Library (from eBird) as they can, there are too many to look through, so there are lots of incorrect identifications there. Just do a search for Savannah Sparrow.... ? Probably not the best site for a new birder to use.
  9. It's 100% a Northern Flicker. Did you see the light line under the eye with binoculars or your naked eye? It looks like a photo artifact.
  10. Looks like there are no Red-breasted Merganser reports in Belgrade from July, so I doubt they would nest anywhere nearby. I think they're Commons (beak shape on the adult supports that). #5 looks like another Common Yellowthroat.
  11. Pretty sure the woodpecker is a Red-naped Sapsucker. What makes you all think Williamson's Sapsucker?
  12. 1. Looks better for a Swamp Sparrow 2. Swamp Sparrow 3. Young Song or Lincoln's Sparrow 4. Song Sparrow 5. Agree with Common Yellowthroat
  13. 2-4 are Song Sparrows. Can't see #1 well enough to be certain, but I think it's a young Song.
  14. The first two are juveniles (cinnamon wingbars and yellow gape flange).
