  1. What kind of warbler is this? See south of Richmond, VA yesterday. Poor pictures. Thanks, Scott H
  2. This was my only photo, but you are making me feel better that it is not so easy to identify after all.
  3. Just landed in crape myrtle tree while working on my computer today in Glen Allen, VA. picture taken through my dirty window. I know this is probably a beginner identification, but I have more trouble with hawks that smaller birds. What key things would you look at here to determine if this is a Red-Tailed Hawk or a Red-Shouldered Haw. Some Red-Shouldered Hawks on Google images have a reddish brown chest, but then I find younger ones have a chest like this. Thanks, Scott H.
  4. Can you tell what kind of raptor this is from this picture. Zoomed in, cropped and blurry. Seen in Ashland, VA today, Oct 17, circling around my yard. Just a red-tailed hawk? Thanks, Scott H.
  5. Saw no migratory warblers this morning:( Seen in New Kent County VA near Pamunkey river today. Are they both great crested flycatchers or something else? Thanks, Scott H.
  6. That is crazy to see 2 such rare birds at almost the same time. Both are first time sightings for me. Thank you!
  7. I saw these at the same time South of Richmond, VA near the James River today. First migrating birds I've seen this year. If that is what they are. Thanks for your help! Scott Hubbard
  8. You'd think I could tell by now. Especially from such a nice picture. Seen at Henricus Park south of Richmond, VA today. Thanks Scott H.
  9. Seen at Henricus park south of RIchmond VA, today. Is this too poor a shot to identify? Thanks, Scott H.
  10. OK. So, I was right in thinking it was not one of "the usual suspects"! Thank you!
  11. See at Henricus Park south of Richmond, VA yesterday. Probably just a usual sparrow, but I am not sure. It is that time of year when strange birds do come through. Thanks for your help, Scott H.
  12. Seen south of Richmond VA today near the James River. Thanks for your help, Scott Hubbard
  13. I see. I should have recognized them. It there had been a male, I would have. Thanks.
  14. I saw these ducks at Dutch Gap, south of Richmond VA today. I know these are unusual. At least for me. I couldn't get anywhere near close enough to get good pictures. Can you identify them from this? Thanks, Scott Hubbard
  15. Seen south of Richmond VA today. It's size was smaller than most other hawks. And the coloration on the head. What is the 1 thing that stands out that confirms this as a Cooper's Hawk. If it is. Thanks, Scott H.
  16. Seen south of Richmond, VA yesterday. I know it is one of the common ones, but which one is this? Thanks
  17. Wow. I give up. At least I thought I could look at the tail of a hawk and recognize a Red-Tailed Hawk. The banding/stripes don't fit my thinking but I know juveniles can have differences. Scott H.
  18. Why do I have so much trouble with hawks? They are so big! Seen on my neighbors roof a couple days ago in Glen Allen VA. The tail doesn't look red to me. It seemed too big for a Coopers Hawk and the tail stripes are so much wider than pictures on google. That leaves the most likely a Red-shouldered or Broad-winged. So I am going to say a Broad-Winged Hawk? Do Red-shouldered have tail stripes like this? Thanks, Scott H.
  19. Taken south of Richmond VA today. Could these be Savannah sparrows? Perhaps the distance gives them a lighter coloration. Scott H.
  20. Third and final request from my trip to Dutch Gap South of Richmond VA, today. I don't think it is House, Song, Chipping, Savannah. Could it be a swamp sparrow? Thanks, Scott H.
  21. I have a lot of trouble with hawks. Only a front view. Seen at Dutch Gap Park south of Richmond today.
  22. So I guess that is rare for this area! Thank you all. I was at the Dutch Gap Area! I should have been more specific as to my location. I saw a lot of birds there today. Lots of Cedar Waxwings. I am going to post another picture for help on a hawk. Thanks, Scott H.
  23. See south of Richmond, VA today. I included the 2nd pic since you can see the shape of the head. Why is there always a branch in the way to mess up the focus! Thanks, Scott H.
