  3. Thanks! Not a bird I see very often in the neighborhood, good score.
  4. Seen in Chapel Hill, NC this morning. The bird had a fairly pronounced reddish hue to it, when I first saw it I instantly thought it was a Veery. I stalked it for a while trying to get a decent photo of it. I'm posting two photos, one fairly decent and the other not so much, but shows a bit more of the throat. I'll mention that about two minutes after I took the last photo of the bird I came across what I was 100% sure was a Swainson's Thrush and it had a much duller brown color to it.

  12. Seen this morning in Chapel Hill, NC. It kind of looks like a Field Sparrow to me, but I have doubts. I first saw the bird perched on a feeder along with a Chipping Sparrow, and this bird was noticeably larger. Usually those two species are about the same size. Also this birds beak just seems too large for a Field Sparrow. To me the bird was like a Field Sparrow on steroids. I wasn't able to get any great photos, but this is what I have.

  14. Ha! That might be true most of the time, but I don't get to see Barred Owls very often. I see hawks almost every day.

  16. Thanks to all. That angle was the only angle I got with my photos. The bird was quite a distance away and then a Barred Owl called fairly close to me and I was off to the races. I couldn't find the owl and the hawk was gone when I checked again. There are several Red-shoulder Hawk nest in the neighborhood and I see them often. The mature birds are easy to ID, but the juvenile/immature are harder for me, especially when they don't vocalize.

  18. Seen this morning in Chapel Hill, NC. The bird was perched quite a distance from me and the long range photo and crop didn't yield a very good image. It doesn't look like the common Red-shouldered Hawk I often see, I was leaning towards a Broad-winged Hawk. Any thoughts?

  21. I saw this bird this morning in Chapel Hill, NC. I knew immediately it wasn't one the usual sparrows I see, so I did my best to get a useable photo of the bird. I got a few decent shots of it so it's face was visible. The bird didn't hang around, it was gone a few seconds later. I've been going over sparrow photos and the best I can figure at this point is Grasshopper Sparrow, which wouldn't be rare for this area, but I don't see them often. Any help would be appreciated.
