  1. S. WI just a little bit ago, country. Heard it and turned on Merlin and was surprised there was no match as I was fairly close to the sound. Could it be a blue jay? I have Midwest and West Coast bird pacs. 2023-09-23 1428.wav
  2. The photo in my camera looks much more like black legs especially compared to the orange legs/feet of the Blackpoll that I was speaking of.
  3. Oh I forgot, there was actually a Blackpoll at pretty much the same time, same tree as this bird. I knew it wasn't the same bird because Blackpoll had just had a bath and was dripping wet just moments before I got these ^ shots.
  4. S. WI today, country. This is the luck of the inexperienced birder πŸ˜•. I feel like it's probably identifiable to you pros.
  5. S.WI Waukesha County 4/15. This was around 5pm in a prairie area. It was with another bird (top blurry bird in original) which I believe was a Red-winged. Grackle, Rusty, or Brewer’s probably, but the poor photo makes it too difficult for me. Thank you for your time!
  6. Thank you. So the Bewick's is the beginning and the end?
  7. My brother in Hillsboro, OR sent me this today from his home in a residential area. Bird is at the beginning and at the end, not sure about the chirps in the middle. Warbler? Thank you! New Recording 3.m4a
  8. Thanks so much. I'll still see if I can crop and possibly bring some detail out in the goose.
  9. S.WI today. Ross's or Snow? Either way it's a lifer for me 😊. Thank you!
  10. Feb. 21, S.WI. These photos are from a group of mixed Trumpeter and Tundra swans. I don't know what order they are going to download in, but I'm speaking of the three swans that are zoomed in in two of the photos, and you can tell which the same are in the other photos. I thought they were Trumpeters because I thought that a juvenile Tundra would be mostly white by now, and the left most of the three looks like it has a gray neck and head. But a couple of the photos make all of the three look Tundra. Also, on the far left in the photo with the most swans, you can see what looks to be a clear juvenile Trumpeter. I think. Thank you!
  11. Thanks so much! Also, regarding Avery's "Disclaimer: Not an expert. Wait for confirmation!", are the likes confirmation? 😬
  12. Feb 21, S.WI, I don't know if the pairs in the first two pics are all the same birds, but they were part of a group of 13 Trumpeters and Tundras. In the first pic it looks like the front bird has a U at the bill base while the back bird has a V, maybe. In the second pic the right hand bird clearly looks like a Trumpeter, but the profile of the left bird looks more Tundra. The body of the Trumpeter is turned so it's hard to compare sizes. Also, the last pic of the swan flying I believe is a Trumpeter? Both of these species have been seen around here recently so they're not rare, and I heard both so I know it was a mixed group. Thanks for any help! These pics loaded differently than I put them in so I think when I said second pic, it is now the first pic πŸ˜•
  13. 5/27 SE WI, prairie/small woods, evening Not sure if they're the same species, but they're two different individuals. Thank you!
  14. 5/27 SE WI, prairie/small woods Far away and took off as soon as I shot. If I'm seeing the black markings on the head correctly could it be a hooded warbler? Thanks!
  15. Thank you, I thought they might be grebes. We have pied-billed and horned here right now, probably not a chance of telling which ?
  16. S.WI, 10/5 3:30pm, large pond area Not sure what order pics are going to come in, but I think they're self-explanatory enough. What do you think? Thanks!
  17. S.WI 9/17 6pm, country I have NO idea what is going on with SO many photos! Grrrrr There should be THREE photos- a warbler, an unknown facing you, and a flycatcher. I'm not deleting this, if you can figure it out, kudos! Is the first an American Goldfinch maybe? The second one was just a silhouette in the original so it doesn't really have a bill after raising exposure a lot. And the last one a Least flycatcher? Thank you for any help ?
  18. S.WI today, 2.30PM, wooded country. I was shooting a blackpoll warbler about the same time and thought it was the same bird until I looked at the photos. I'm not sure that this is such a bad photo that the streaking on the breast wouldn't show up if it was the blackpoll? Thanks!
  19. S.WI 8/18, woods adjacent to marsh 6ish PM I thought for sure I'd get one shot with that bird's head in it ?. Anything on either of these would be great. Thanks!
  20. Thanks so much. I should've known that thick bill did not belong to a warbler. Nonetheless, the vireo is a lifer for me!
  21. S.WI 8/18, woods adjacent to marsh, 6ish PM I think there are at least two different birds here, maybe three. The first few pics were overexposed then turned way down in LR so not sure if some of that white is actually yellow. Thank you!
