  1. Tail pattern looks good for a Yellow-rumped and we can see part of the yellow rump and throat in the last photo.
  2. I'm pretty sure males have complete black masks by May, so I think this is a female.
  3. As we always say, size can be very difficult to judge, especially when there are no other birds nearby. That is definitely a White-crowned and it is an immature and not a juvenile.
  4. I agree with Yellow-rumped. It's definitely not a pure Myrtle.
  5. Sounds more like a titmouse to me. It doesn't have a warbler quality.
  6. Thanks for the confirmation, Tony! I wish I had known these subtle differences BEFORE I saw one... I would've chased after it when it flew off... 😞
  7. Yeah, probably! 😄 But I wouldn't have been able to confirm it without photos because I have zero experience with Connecticuts!
  8. With the lack of crown stripes, overall tan color, and stout bill, this is a female/immature male House Sparrow.
  9. 3, 5, and 6 are Turkey Vultures. I believe the rest are Red-taileds.
  10. Cool! I had initially decided on Mourning because I didn't think it was tubby enough for a Connecticut and I thought the eyering and breast band was within normal variation. But it was flagged, so I had to get more opinions!
  11. Thanks, Avery. I'm adding two more photos. I should've included these in the OP. It appears the throat is not yellow.
  12. I saw this warbler briefly in September. I didn't notice much about its behavior because I was too busy taking photos.
  13. Maybe a flycatcher of some sort? https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/browse/shape/Flycatchers
  14. It's a Savannah (tan color with yellow on the face, crisp streaking on white underparts, thin pink bill).
  15. My impression is a dove of some sort. I think the tail is too short for a Mourning, so I'm guessing Eurasian Collared-Dove.
  16. Thanks everyone! Yes, I think it's a Sharpie as well. I am pretty sure I flagged it a few days ago, but it is not flagged anymore, so I assume it was confirmed as a Cooper's. I feel bad flagging observations twice, but................
  17. I would like to know what others think this is: https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/259418911
  18. Some Red-tailed Hawks can have white uppertail coverts (I have an example if you want to see it). It is definitely a Red-tailed.
  19. Another difference between TEWA and OCWA I notice is shape/proportions. OCWAs tend to be more plump and have larger, rounder heads.
  20. I agree -- Yellow-rumped Warbler, Common Yellowthroat, and Song Sparrow. @Tony Leukering could probably tell you the age and sex of the Yellow-rumped.
