  1. Why isn't the bird on the right in the last photo a female Ring-necked? Is it the barred flanks?
  2. Now I'm having second thoughts about the flycatcher. It has quite a bold eyering like a Least. I'm always rusty on my flycatchers at this time of year when I'm not seeing them regularly. You should've asked back when you took these photos!
  3. I think... 1. White-eyed Vireo 2. Ruby-crowned Kinglet 3. Eastern Phoebe
  4. The flycatcher looks like a Willow/Alder. I agree with Kevin on the last two.
  5. Both are indeed Swamp Sparrows. Lincoln's Sparrows have less contrast between the gray neck and the back and cheeks, and they have lighter brown crown stripes among other subtle differences.
  6. Vireos have blue feet, as Charlie has already mentioned. It is a young Golden-crowned Kinglet.
  7. Duplicate post - https://forums.whatbird.com/index.php?/topic/7803-request-input-little-bird-on-new-york-city-sidewalk/
  8. American Tree Sparrow (yellow lower mandible, unstreaked buff and gray underside, black central breast spot, no malar stripes, white wingbars, orange crown, eyeline, and back).
  9. Yes, young Cooper's (large head, small eye, thin brown streaking, and much shorter outer tail feathers).
  10. I'd call it a Red-shouldered Hawk based on the five "wing fingers", translucent crescents near the wingtips, and thin pale band(s) on the tail. It probably looked black because of the poor lighting.
  11. Duplicate post. https://forums.whatbird.com/index.php?/topic/7783-warbler-help-klamath-falls/
  12. Looks like a Red-tailed to me with the white "v" on the back and smaller head. I'd like better photos, though.
  13. Yes, you are correct. It is usually called the shoulder spur.
  14. The bold face pattern with peach tones and the dark stripe at the gape. I could be wrong, though.
  15. The other duck (a female) appears to also be a domestic Mallard.
  16. Agreed, definitely a Brown-headed Cowbird. Size is often difficult to judge, especially when there are no other birds to compare it to.
