  1. A little puzzled by this bird this morning. Orange County, North Carolina, Nov. 12.
  2. Fort Fisher, North Carolina, Nov. 20. Although flagged as rare here by eBird, a few Dickcissels have been regular in the area this fall. The pink bill and near total absence of any yellow tones give me pause.
  3. Just arrived in the Czech Republic, and the first bird I saw besides Stock Doves and Magpies was this warbler along the bank of the Vlatava River. No vocalization. Any chance of an ID?
  4. Small flycatcher in central North Carolina, July 17.
  5. Thoughts on this coastal sparrow? Fort Fisher, North Carolina, Nov. 14.
  6. Any chance on this deeply shaded, backlit flycatcher? Central North Carolina, Sept. 11.
  7. Any help with this Empid? Central North Carolina, Sept. 3. It didn't utter a sound.
  8. Thanks. Yes, the bill looks intermediate to me, but I was thinking that pure white breast couldn't be right for Dunlin.
  9. Any help on this peep? Coastal North Carolina, August 28.
  10. Fort Fisher on the coast of North Carolina. Northern Waterthrush would be the expected bird here, but Louisiana is not unheard-of, and one was reported on the same trail a week ago.
  11. A little rusty on fall warblers. This is a Cape May Warbler, I think, from central North Carolina, August 25. Yes?
  12. Pics are all one bird. I suspect this is an Eastern Wood-Pewee. (It's always an Eastern Wood-Pewee). I still have trouble telling a "long" primary extension from a middling one, and the angle can make a big difference. Central North Carolina, August 23.
  13. A few bluebirds, one pretty ratty-looking, from Sandoval County in northern New Mexico. First two shots (the ragged one) are the same bird. The other two are, I think, the same immature individual. Apparently Eastern, Western, and Mountain are all possible in this area. Thanks.
  14. 1-3 are different individuals, 4-5 are two looks at the same bird. All seen July 31 in Bandelier National Monument, New Mexico. No vocalizations. If any of them are identifiable, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.
  15. Coastal North Carolina, as noted in the post. The Basin Trail at Fort Fisher, to be precise.
  16. Looking for confirmation/correction on two different pairs of ducks. The pair in the water -- one photo -- look like Mottled Ducks to me. Not sure about the other pair, on the shore -- two photos. American Black Duck? Hybrid? Coastal North Carolina, May 21. Thanks
  17. Need help with that rolling song: Carolina Wren, Kentucky Warbler, or something else? Central North Carolina, April 27. Thanks. IMG_1678.MOV
  18. This is a long shot (literally), but is this hawk identifiable? Central North Carolina, April 16. There are only three plausible possibilities, I think — Red-shouldered, Red-tailed, and Broad-winged.
  19. I thought so in the field, although I suppose it's theoretically possible there were two in the same area. It has the same gap in the upper wing bar, though, which does lead me to believe it's the same bird.
  20. Any help with this flycatcher? Wilmington, North Carolina, Sept. 19. Didn't vocalize.
  21. The flycatchers vex me no end. These are different birds, all from central North Carolina today, Sept. 13. Last one possibly a Least? Thanks for any help.
  22. Two different birds, North Carolina mountains, Aug. 8.
  23. North Carolina mountains, Aug. 8. Drawing a blank on the yellow throat, white undertail coverts, yellow feet, white wing patch.
  24. Thanks. There was a Great Black-backed right next to this bird, and it was clearly a much more massive bird.
