  1. Looks like a Coop. Thick legs, rounded tail with white tip.
  2. Volcano Hummingbird, White-plumed Antbird, and a Yellow-throated Toucan pretending to be a banana ?
  3. Pretty sure we had something like this before.
  4. Yeah I was second-guessing myself after posting because of the beak.
  5. Hi! Welcome to Whatbird! eBird is an excellent website for learning about bird behavior. Here is the sightings map for migration in NYC of Yellow-shafted Northern Flickers. If it's any help, the red-shafted flickers I get here occasionally flock at my house over a period of a week or more, mostly during migration season (don't know why). https://ebird.org/map/yesfli?neg=true&env.minX=155.69237000960777&env.minY=9.447971766050006&env.maxX=2.411120009607771&env.maxY=71.35671329491146&zh=true&gp=false&ev=Z&mr=8-11&bmo=8&emo=11&yr=all&byr=1900&eyr=2018
  6. Red fox photo I took a while back
  7. Zigzag Heron (this guy is so cool) Photo credit google images:
  8. I've had a Red-breasted Sapsucker and a Yellow-shafted Northern Flicker in my yard within the past two weeks . The Sapsucker was 400 miles away from normal range and was a first county record, and the Flicker is a long ways away and a 3rd county record https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49251110 https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49056867

  10. Ultramarine Flycatcher ? Photo credit in photo
  11. Looks like a Red-headed Woodpecker with those bright white wing patches.
  12. Looks like a Winter Wren, although I could be mistaken and it's just a House Wren. EDIT: The more I look at it the more I think house... I believe Winters have little stubby tails.
  13. Oh no! I'm not sure what to do about that... I posted them the way I always do. Does it say they don't exist or is the post just blank?
  14. Here are some of the best species I've been able to see. Red Fox pup in Stanley, ID: Mink while fishing in Stanley, ID: Black-tailed (?) Prairie Dog: Red Fox black type: Baby Striped Skunk at my house: North American Porcupine at my house: Northern Flying Squirrel: I believe this is a Western Pipistrelle:
  15. Milkweed Borer: Cuckoo Bees Thicket Hairstreak: Mylitta Crescent Some sort of Blue (I forgot)
  16. It all depends on common... I've seen 2 WBNUs my whole life haha. Very nice photos! Here are some of mine that are common where I took the shot:
  17. Doesn't look like it has dark wingpits, and from what I can see of the tail the black bars are not wide enough to be a Merlin, nor messy enough to be a Peregrine. I'd say American Kestrel.
