  1. 1. Palm Warbler 2. Eastern Phoebe 3-4. Black-throated Green Warbler 5-6. Eastern Phoebe
  2. That is a Great-tailed Grackle. Common Grackles have larger heads and bills and shorter tails.
  3. Female or young male Purple Finch.
  4. The first bird is an Orange-crowned Warbler (a Palm would have brown upperparts and long pale supercilia). I agree with Nashville for the second bird.
  5. Yes, all are correct, including Purple Finch.
  6. I think the primary projection looks good for an Acadian.
  7. 1. Meadowlark sp.? 2-3. Savannah Sparrows 4. Ruby-crowned Kinglet 5. Eastern Bluebird
  8. Yes, Tennessee. Greener/yellower head, longer and more distinct supercilia, whiter undertail coverts, and slimmer body.
  9. I think the warbler is a Tennessee with the thin bill and short tail. Some can have thin wingbars like that. I'm not sure about the second bird.
  10. Palm Warbler (brown upperparts, long yellow supercilium, yellow undertail coverts).
  11. That is a Yellow-rumped Warbler. Finches have conical bills.
  12. Fall Bay-breasteds and Blackpolls are greener and have bolder wingbars than Pines and they have streaking on the back which Pines lack. There is also a difference in shape and proportions.
  13. That is a Hutton's Vireo with the two wingbars, pale supraloral, and large eye.
  14. A Vesper Sparrow would have streaking on the breast, flanks, back of the neck, and supercilia.
  15. That is a Lincoln's Sparrow. Note the blue-gray supercilium and back of neck and the thin streaking over buffy flanks.
  16. As I understand it, a juvenile is in its first plumage or set of feathers. Once it begins to molt those juvenile feathers the bird becomes an immature (before it has all of its adult feathers/features). In some species, like the White-crowned Sparrow, the bird will molt from its juvenile plumage into an intermediate immature plumage that they wear for a certain time before molting again into adult plumage. White-crowned Sparrows are heavily streaked in juvenile plumage, so this is not a juvenile, and it is also not an adult because it doesn't have black crown stripes.
