  1. I saw three gulls flying quite a distance away yesterday, not real high. I understand they might not be identifiable, but thank you for any guesses.
  2. Saw this bird yesterday in the marsh, late afternoon. At first I thought it was a Lincoln's, but then after I looked at some pics of immatures of both sparrows I'm not sure. Also, please take a look at the last three photos, saw these also yesterday in some woods next to the marsh. Is the first a pigeon (this was near a farm)? And I doubt the last can be identified, but in the last photo of two birds the one on the left is a Cedar Waxwing for size comparison. Goldfinch or House Finch? Thanks so much!
  3. S. WI yesterday, mid afternoon, rainy. The first bird was near some yellow-rumped warblers and eastern bluebirds, I believe about the same size. I don't think it's the Ruffed Grouse that Merlin suggested 😏. Could the second bird be a Broad-winged hawk? It was a mile or two up! The third and fourth are the same bird, eastern wood pewee or phoebe ?; I understand if it’s not identifiable. Thank you!
  4. Took these a couple days ago, S. WI. First pic looks like ducks, that's all I can tell. Second two pics have four grayish birds flying that don't look like ducks, but I have no idea.Well, I don't think they're pigeons :/. There is a Trumpeter swan lower left in the one for somewhat of a size reference. Thanks to my FF camera you can't zoom in, sorry. Thank you!
  5. S. WI yesterday. This bird was so high up I’m surprised I even spotted it. All I’m really sure of is it’s not a vulture. I wouldn’t expect positive identification but any guess would be appreciated. Thank you!
  6. Today, through a screened window 😕. Thanks!
  7. These were all seen in or near the marsh over the weekend, late day close to golden hour. The flycatcher was among cattails and marsh brush. The hawk was pretty far away flying high over the marsh. The wren and mystery bird were on the edge of some small woods next to the marsh. I only got two shots of the white bird, and I was REALLY overexposed- but trust me- the bird was mostly white. I darkened the photos as much as I could, but in the last photo (of the white bird) the head of the bird is all but invisible. Is it a hawk? Can you tell which? I got a couple lousy
  8. I brightened up that darker photo and brought out a little more detail if that helps. Otherwise, thank you for identifying the first one 😃
  9. Can you tell from the bad photos what these are? Not sure if it's the same bird. Two original photos, two closeups. Thanks!
  10. Is this an indigo bunting? There is an adult male around, but I haven't seen them near each other, and this one is mostly feeding on the ground, not the feeders like he is. And that bluish neck/breast is kind of throwing me. This was today- it's actually still out there on the board, 6pm central. Thank you!
  11. So the bird on the branch in the first two pics is the female cardinal? I wish I could see it. All I can see is the pheasant mallard kestrel bird that I can't get out of my head. Ha. Thank you!
  12. Saw these birds two days ago. The first bird in question (first 3 pics) is sitting on a branch, and about 7 o’clock from it is another bird that looks like it’s flying toward it. That bird is a brown thrasher for size comparison that took off while I was shooting it. I’m not sure if the white that looks like a ring around the bird’s neck is part of a branch or the bird. I’m also not sure if it’s looking backward or that’s just sunlight on leaves or something. The green is probably aberration as that green is other places in the photo as well. The third photo must be the brown thra
