  1. Rose-breasted Grosbeak by Mark Goodwin, on Flickr
  2. Seen this morning in Chapel Hill, NC. I'm thinking this is probably a Chipping Sparrow, but I've been going back and forth on the ID. The bird seemed larger than the average Chipping Sparrows I've been seeing. Any thoughts? Thanks!
  3. Yesterday was a pretty good birding day for this time of year. I don't often see many migrating warbler's in my neighborhood, but I came across a mixed flock yesterday and was able to get some photos as well. https://ebird.org/checklist/S75034243

  5. I posted a decent photo of a Rose-breasted Grosbeak last week. I see those birds in the spring and fall, although mostly in the fall. It's been one of those birds that I've had trouble getting any kind of decent photo of, so I was happy to get the shot I posted. Then a few days later I saw this male low in a tree. Initially it was partially obscured in the branches, but I was able to slowly move where I found a clear window. The bird was very cooperative and allowed me to take about a dozen photos of him. Obviously a big improvement over my first post, I was super pleased to get these shots. Rose-breasted Grosbeak by Mark Goodwin, on Flickr Rose-breasted Grosbeak by Mark Goodwin, on Flickr

  9. Thanks! That bird is kind of a major score in these parts.
  10. Seen this afternoon in Chapel Hill, NC. I was actually out warbler hunting and saw this bird low, where I was looking down on it from about 20 feet away. What caught my eye was the very bright yellow wing-bar on a medium gray body, so my first impression was Golden-Winged Warbler. It had been raining, so the lens cap was on my camera and I had to scramble to get photos. By then the bird had gone up into a tree and I only got a few shots before it disappeared. It seems the only other bird it could be is a Chestnut-sided, but I'm just not seeing that in the photos. Opinions would be welcomed. Thanks!
