    Backyard Accipiter id

    Yeah, I would say the first is a Coop and the second is a Sharpie.
  2. And what about Greater Scaup? They seem to have a similar range within Georgia as Common Goldeneye.
  3. I would certainly not call it on this photo, but the way the back of the head curves the opposite direction looks like COGO.
  4. In the very center photo with the giant tree in back, there are some with head shapes very similar to COGO.
  5. There are some photos with a house in them. Do you have any more from that area? There's a good candidate for Red-breasted Merganser sitting behind the bush in the water. Long and low with a peaked forehead but I'm not sure if the camera is skewing things because of the bush.

    Songbird in South TX

    I should mention, not entirely visible against the black.

    Songbird in South TX

    Black extends in a straight line from the shoulder across the back. This is a Western Tanager. In an American Goldfinch, the top stripe is not visible.

  13. Oh okay, I didnt see that report. Swanson's also have dark tail tips and their under wing coverts are light and their flight feathers are dark, the opposite of your bird. The dark morphs are a bit iffy with that feature but the under wing coverts are a light orangish rather than black like your bird. Also, the overall giss doesn't look swainsons to me.

    Rough legged?

    I'd agree with Harlans due to the lack of a substantial dark tail tip, and the first photo shows some light areas near the legs. When zooming up, you can kinda see light streaking in the breast. Southern Oregon I believe is a good place to get them.
