  1. The head seems too dark and small for a harrier. Looks like a Peregrine Falcon to me.

  3. Spring is my favorite birding season here in Vermont and my favorite time all around. Early- to mid-May is when the weather is perfect, the trees haven't fully leafed out yet, and migration is in full swing. Bugs are not a big problem at my house.
  4. It looks much too small compared to the twigs it's sitting in to be a Red-shouldered. Do you have other photos?

  11. Well, I take that back... "Counts of zero birds - not including a bird in your checklist implies a count of zero on a complete checklist, so please don't enter '0' as a number. The one rare exception to this is when using the UN Breeding Code." https://support.ebird.org/en/support/solutions/articles/48000795623-ebird-rules-and-best-practices
  12. Only enter a zero on a species if you were specifically looking for that species but didn't find it.

  14. Tail pattern helps me immensely - the thin white bands on a Merlin is often easy to see with the naked eye. Can Northern Harrier be ruled out?

  17. Not quite. The distinctive pale barring or "icicles" on a Red-shouldered are on the secondaries. I agree that this is a Red-shouldered though.
  18. Thanks, that's interesting. Perhaps I see mostly young birds during the winter.

  22. I could be wrong here as I haven't been able to find much information on this, but I don't think you can tell the morph of a winter White-throated. The spring is when the white-striped morphs start to show their white crown stripes. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
