  1. Yes my profile pic is a Prothonotary Warbler.  Picture was taken at Lefleur's Bluff State Park in Jackson, MS.  The local Audubon Society maintains several nesting boxes in the Jackson area.  These "Swamp Canaries" are very common all over Mississippi in the Summertime.  Look for them in Mosquito infested Cypress Swamps.  It is possible to see them in you backyard during migration.

  2. The picture sure looks like a crow.  No Ravens in Mississippi.  Just American/Fish Crows.  That audio file kind of  sounds a lot like a recordings of Golden Eagle to me.  A Golden Eagle in Mississippi is not unheard of but very unusual.  Juvenile Bald Eagles are dark brown.  They don't get their white tail and head until about 3 years.  There are several nesting Bald Eagles up Hwy 49 towards Yazoo City and around Lake Caroline in Madison.  All Central Mississippi.  I live south of Jackson and would love to verify this bird.  I TOTALLY respect that you may not want to meet a stranger over the internet.  If you want to try to meet I am sure we can work it out in a way you feel safe.  If not you could call Nick Winstead (state ornithologist) at Mississippi Museum of Natural Science.  This could be a big deal.
