  1. I use these sights as conformations. I'm new. Thank you for your input.
  2. Hi everyone, I think this is a Red-Tail Hawk. Date: Yesterday Habitat: Mixed Forest Region: Northern Illinois Thank you!
  3. Thank you Avery, for the information. I was hoping it would stay. But I haven't seen it for a while. I just hope it found another feeder. I also saw a Fox sparrow yesterday. And a robin a few weeks ago. All of which I never saw before at such a late date. The robin did not stay, and I have no proof. But I will post the picture of the Fox sparrow as well. I suppose it too, can stay given enough food...
  4. This is obviously a catbird. Please excuse the title error.
  5. Hello everyone, On 12/30/20, I saw this poor catbird at my feeder. It stayed for a few days. But I haven't seen it in more than a week. I had no idea catbirds can survive this deep into a Northern Illinois winter. I know catbirds can eat seeds, but is this cat bird doomed to perish? I've never seen this before. Any thoughts? Is it possible is catbird will survive? Location: Northern Illinois Date: 12/30/20 Habitat: Mixed woods, backyard feeder
  6. Thank you all. These birds are quite difficult for me. I will go with the Ovenbird identification, unless the controversy will continue! ?
  7. My apologies, I must have forgotten all about posting this! Anyway, thank you for your help!
  8. Hello all, I think I have a wood thrush here. What could this be? Maybe a Swainson's Thrush? Location: Northern Illinois Habitat: Mixed Forest Date: Two weeks ago
  9. Thank you so much, everyone! This one, I should have known ?
  10. Hello all, Thank you for the confirmation! No, I do not believe I posted this pic before. It was taken about two or three weeks ago, but I just had time to process it recently. I have asked for help with kinglets before, as I am sure I will ask for help with them in the future :). But this, to my knowledge, this should be fresh, never-posted image. Thank you again, everyone!
  11. I'm so bad at these tiny birds....is this a Ruby-crowned Kinglet? Location: Northern Illinois Habitat: Mixed forest/pond Date: 11/1
  12. Hello - is this an American Tree Sparrow? Location: Northern Illinois Habitat: Mixed forest, backyard. Date: Today
  13. Hi all! Is this a Ruby-Crowned Kinglet? Location: Northern Illinois Habitat: Mixed forest Date: Today
  14. Thank you, all. Yes, he was really a kaleidoscope!
  15. Hi all, Is this a common Grackle? Location: Northern Illinois Habitat: Mixed forest Date: 10/10/20
  16. Thank you Sneat, for pointing out these key differences. I can see them now!!!
  17. Yes, I see. Thank you for showing me these subtle, but distinct differences. I've been looking for a vero in my area for a while. Never having found one, I think i mentally gave up even looking for one. Thank you again for the excellent resource, Tony!
  18. This looks like an American Restart to me. Location: Northern Illinois Habitat: Mixed forest Date: Today
  19. Hi all, I think this is a Palm warbler. Habitat: Pond, mixed forest Location: Northern Illinois Date: 9/1/20
  20. Thank you both! Wow, Tony, this is excellent information and thank you for the great resource. It is very appreciated, and will be useful, I'm sure!
  21. Hi everyone, I think this is just a juvenile Red-tailed hawk. However, I guess there is a chance it may be a Red-shouldered or a Broad-winged hawk. Any suggestions? Location: Northern Illinois Date: Today Habitat: Farmland, mixed forest nearby.
