  8. OK, I realize these days a lot of us have extra time on our hands. For some reason this bird popped into my head this morning. These are photos I took in May 2012 in the area around Playa del Carmen down in the Yucatan. I have never figured out what this bird is, I only have a few guesses in my head. Way back I posted some of these photos to see if anyone had any ideas, but at the time I don't recall anyone coming up with anything solid. It seems there are a lot more birders on this site now, so I thought I'd post the photos again.

  12. I have to admit that when I first saw the bird my first thought was "Cooper's Hawk". I took probably 30 photos of the bird while it was perched and was convinced that I had gotten a few nice photos of a Cooper's. Most of the time, my first impression when making a bird ID is correct. But once I downloaded the photos and looked at them closely I kept thinking it looked more like a Red-shouldered Hawk, but I had convinced myself it was a Cooper's although the evidence was staring me in the face. I try not to be hard headed about identifying a bird, but I certainly was this time. Thanks again for all of your input.
  13. This photo isn't as sharp as I would have liked, but I decided to post it. I normally see Cape May Warblers maybe 5-6 times a year and feel fortunate to ever get a photo of one. It was a bit unusual to see one this early in the year in this area (Chapel Hill, NC) and this was a long range shot which I cropped more than normal for me. Even though it isn't a real sharp photo, I was happy to get it. Cape May Warbler by Mark Goodwin, on Flickr
  14. I'm thinking Cooper's Hawk, but not 100% sure...
