    Knowing what eye colour you're referring to might be useful info to help others eliminate or include certain species as an option.

    Well that explains a lot, I don't know what happened, I uploaded the photos to flkr, then copy and pasted them, not sure why they didn't show up on the post. I've gone back and added them, hopefully they will work this time.

    I saw this bird this morning in Northeast Ohio. The eye color is really throwing me, figure maybe it is a juvenile? Looked too small to be a red-shouldered hawk. I considered a Merlin, but looked a little too big, but I have only seen one twice, and it was farther away, so maybe it just looked bigger because it was closer up. Any thoughts? Thanks!

    Kestrel? More details would help. Color, Size, Habitat, Activity, Flight Pattern, Tail Shape, etc. The link down below is to a kestrel.


    This was bigger than a Kestrel. It was just sitting in a tree on the edge of a wooded area near a reservoir. It flew off towards the rising sun, so I wasn't able to get a good look at it in flight.

    Personally, I'd leave this one as Philadelphia/Warbling.  The lores and cap aren't particularly dark, but that doesn't rule out Philly.  I find that if I have to edit the photos to see anything it's probably not safe to ID.

    Thanks, I only lightened up the second photo. I was hoping it was a Philadelphia because I don't have a photo of one of those.
