  1. I agree with all the above--Great shot of a White-rumped Sandpiper. The orange base on the lower mandible is diagnostic for White-rumped.
  2. I'm not sure about your particular call, but xeno-canto is a good place to search for bird sounds. Here is a link to Blue Jay: https://www.xeno-canto.org/species/Cyanocitta-cristata
  3. The links don't seem to be working, at least for me.
  4. I like the title! I've been too busy to spend much time on here. I can't look at all posts, but I had to click on yours.😁
  5. Maybe Lazuli Bunting. I'm not actually familiar with Lazuli so wait for additional response.
  6. With the dark iridescent feathers and light spots, as well as the yellow bill, this is a European Starling.
  7. Flycatcher. Maybe Cordilleran, but wait for more input. Welcome to Whatbird!
  8. But that face! It looks like a gargoyle!
  9. Thanks, all. I'm out of likes at the moment. I really appreciate the responses.
  10. Yes, but we get a few up the east coast, so not freaky strange.
  11. Yesterday, Edisto Island, SC. I called it an Orchard Oriole in the field, but now the bill looks a bit thick and short, the tail seems short, and the upper wing bar appears to be slightly yellow. Western Tanager by any chance?
  12. Thanks. That would be my first Eastern that I know of. And 2-4 are the same bird.
  13. Yesterday. Edisto Beach, SC. The two birds in the first photo look like the Willets I normally see. Western? The bird in the next three shots looks very different. Still a Western? @akandula you once posted a good page on Willets. If you remember where it was, could you repost? Thanks.
  14. Yesterday, Edisto Beach, SC. I'm guessing a young Wilson's but I can't seem to find a good match. Thanks!
  15. It sounds pretty close to a White-eyed Vireo.
  16. With a pronounced cap and the extensive black underneath, I think these are American Golden. Not that I have any experience with these. Definitely wait for more input.
  17. I was just thinking about you and your daughter yesterday. Hopefully, the chaos will subside and you can fit in a little birding.
  18. Where is the Hubble telescope when you need it? I agree with Benjamin. The upright bird in the first photo looks good--rusty brown neck and greenish iridescent on the wing. The hunched-over bird to the left may be as well but it's a little harder to say. The center bird in the second photo also looks good. I'm not sure about anything else.
  19. Wild guess, but your description of the call made me think of Eastern Towhee: https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Eastern_Towhee
