  1. Ruby-crowned Kinglet, Song Sparrow, Ruby-crowned Kinglet, Swamp Sparrows.
  2. No I don't think so, Lessers tend to be slower, less bubbly, and repeat each note a few times before moving to the next.
  3. I'm here for college. I'm originally from Idaho.
  4. I forgot the hummers. I get Black-chinned, Broad-tailed, Calliope, Rufous, and the occasional rare Anna's.
  5. That's a chipmunk. I learned this one the hard way after moving to Pennsylvania ?
  6. Old topic, but it's still a good one. I have 119 species for my yard currently ?. Obviously a bunch of those are flyovers and birds that don't visit the feeders. I need to make a list of my regular visitors, but mostly it's House Sparrow, House Finch, Northern Flicker, Black-billed Magpie, Yellow-headed Blackbird, Brown-headed Cowbird, Red-winged Blackbird, Lesser and American Goldfinch, California Quail, and Dark-eyed Junco. Last winter I had a huge eruption of Evening Grosbeaks which was awesome!
  7. I've never heard Common Goldeneye bills described as "long and thin" - and females have orange tips on theirs.
  8. This is a young bird by the looks of it. I agree with Western -- I would expect Cassin's to be much darker and have gray extending farther into the breast.
  9. This is an "intermediate" morph Red-tailed Hawk. I'm not good with the other subspecies, but I know this isn't a Harlan's. Harlan's should basically look black and white with practically no rufous tones, and the entire front and underwing coverts should be black. The tail from what I know can be red in Harlan's, but in the ones I've seen it's always been pure white.
  10. I tried to do that one but nobody could get it ?
  11. Size is really deceiving. Since the male is facing left and we can see the whole body, and the female is facing the camera and is squatted down, I'd reckon they're actually a similar size. I'm good with female Brewer's. Just to note, none of the contrasting features of House Sparrow are visible, and scaly-breasted munias definitely don't look like this.
  12. That's a female Brewer's Blackbird I think. For some reason it looks really tiny next to the male. (I was also considering Brown-headed Cowbird)
  13. 1-2 Swallow species. Initially thought Violet-green but they're out of range. Tree? 3. Yellowleg sp.
  14. Why is this not a Tennessee Warbler? The contrast between the yellow rump and white undertail coverts is clear in the first photo. In addition, the overall coloration doesn't look like Orange-crowned to me.
  15. There's a White-throated Sparrow in the first one, and all the thrushes are Hermit, except maybe the third to last.
