  1. 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!
  2. Thank you. So the Bewick's is the beginning and the end?
  3. 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
  4. Thanks so much. I'll still see if I can crop and possibly bring some detail out in the goose.
  5. S.WI today. Ross's or Snow? Either way it's a lifer for me 😊. Thank you!
  6. 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!
  7. Thanks so much! Also, regarding Avery's "Disclaimer: Not an expert. Wait for confirmation!", are the likes confirmation? 😬
  8. 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 😕
  9. 5/27 SE WI, prairie/small woods, evening Not sure if they're the same species, but they're two different individuals. Thank you!
  10. 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!
  11. Thank you, I thought they might be grebes. We have pied-billed and horned here right now, probably not a chance of telling which ?
  12. 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!
  13. 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 ?
  14. 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!
  15. 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!
  16. Thanks so much. I should've known that thick bill did not belong to a warbler. Nonetheless, the vireo is a lifer for me!
  17. 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!
  18. I thought that 4th pic looked like a pewee, wasn't sure if I had two different birds. Thank you!
  19. S.WI 8/18, wooded area adjacent to marsh, 6ish PM. Can you tell which flycatcher this is? Sorry the photos are not great, I was really overexposed so even after turning exposure way down in LR the whites are still too bright. I feel like the breast was more gray that what is showing. Thanks!
  20. S. WI 8/14, 4pm. I would like to mention first that this yellow oriole turned orange once I downloaded it to my laptop so even if it is a Baltimore it was a very yellow bird, which is why I’m here. I have seen yellow male Baltimores so I would imagine there are yellow females also? With that said, if the bird is a Baltimore can you please tell me what characteristics make it that and not an Orchard? I'm here to learn! ☺️ ALSO, in the last two photos of the pair of Baltimores, I was wondering if the bird on the right could positively be identified as a female or is it the wrong time of year for that? Any info is helpful, thanks so much!
  21. Haha, I was actually joking about the cowbird finch ?. I wasn't sure between purple and house finch, but then Merlin identified it as a brown-headed cowbird which really confused me so I thought I'd throw in the combination for laughs ?. Thank you!
  22. S. WI 8/4. I was wondering if you could tell what oriole it is in the first three photos? The second photo is not in focus (not the bird anyway!), and it's too bad because that's the only one that shows the wing bars ?. There is another bird near the oriole- a house sparrow? The last photo looks like a cowbird finch to me ?. ? This was 3-4 pm. Thank you!
  23. S. WI, couple days ago. The first 3 pics are the same bird. Tree or chipping sparrow if you can tell? Dark spot on breast looks tree but not sure of other parts. I’m quite sure the 4th pic is a tree sparrow? I have no idea what the 5th pic is of. Redwing? And the last was a swallow in New Mexico at the very end of August. Thank you!
