  1. I'd second Yellow-rumped Warbler for the same reasons!
  2. Also thinking American Pipit here, and also loving these photos!
  3. Not 100% sure, but to me it kinda sounds like a variation of a Blue Jay call. I have heard them make similar whistling noises like that here.
  4. Awesome, thank you so much! Tennessee is actually a lifer for me if that's what it is. I might amplify them a bit in audacity (which I just found out about recently and I am enjoying messing with it) and re-upload them so some are easier to hear. Though I know some just aren't good cause the bird was distant/quiet and there's a lot of other stuff singing over them and may be unidentifiable, that is understandable haha. I didn't actually see the bird in the last call, so it's possible he wasn't quite at the top, but he just sounded like he was up high so I assumed too fast. I feel you there with the passers and spring/summer birds in general. I guess I am just preparing even though it's February haha.
  5. Haha I feel you there. I am only good with the ones I am used to seeing and hearing in person as well, however all the bunches of spring songs still trip me up.
  6. Ah sorry to hear if it is confusing! I wasn't really sure how else to upload them, I am sorry :c I thought of making a separate post for all of them but I didn't want to spam since it is a lot. I thank you for the help with the Prothonotary warbler though!! I'll try to figure something out that might make it all easier to see, maybe uploading them to xeno-canto and putting them here would be more helpful? I figured ebird would be more helpful since you can see spectograms though. Maybe it's actually easier to view them directly from the macaulay library so not to be overwhelmed by all the other stuff? Like this? https://search.macaulaylibrary.org/catalog?taxonCode=warble&searchField=user&hotspot=Old Mill, Sumner, US-KS&hotspotCode=L6588485&userId=USER856612&q=S. Queen&species=warbler sp. (Parulidae sp.) - Parulidae sp. I could make another post for the non-warbler birds
  7. Late, but, I like this idea. It never bothered me cause I'm used to it but one of my friends that I had join this site was confused at all the pinned posts there at first. I also would be in favor for some kind of forum/subforums for the non-bird critters to come back, as well as the polling subforum and definitely a general birding topics forum!
  8. These recordings are all from May 13, 2018, in south-central Kansas in an old-growth mixed forest with a stream and pond areas. It's understandable if only some are identified since some of the recordings aren't that great, I appreciate any help at all with this! Thanks in advance! Here is the ebird checklist with all of them, the ones I am questioning are under warbler sp. and passerine sp. I thought it would easier for everyone to show the full checklist than give all 8 individually haha. https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S45641588#_ga=2.187947114.395577549.1549329519-854749915.1541818515 Thanks again, let me know if any more details are needed or if the link doesn't work!
  9. Not 100% positive on ID either, but I think the length of the wedge-shaped tail relative to the body as well as the bill shape/length might suggest Neotropic.
  10. I love em, haha. Thank you for your thoughts. I thought the eyering also seemed prominent but I was not sure if Alder could have variations with that. Btw, here is the link to the inaturalist forum post if anyone is interested and wants to look at it there or get more specifics on location, I was going to edit it into my original post but I couldn't for some reason haha https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/20003631
  11. Taken in south-central Kansas, May 13, 2018 in an old growth mixed forest, bird was right above a little pond area. In the past I had believed this to be a Least Flycatcher, (I believe because I heard a Least vocalizing somewhere then saw this bird so I just assumed) but recently someone on inaturalist questioned if it may actually be an Alder Flycatcher, so I thought I would come here for more opinions because Alder would actually be a lifer for me! However I totally understand if it isn't separable from Least with this photo. Sadly this individual was fast and being difficult so this is the only photo I have, I didn't think to try to get more photos since at the time I assumed too fast that it was a Least. I thought I would post anyways though just in case haha. Thanks all in advance for any help!
  12. Agreed with Red-tailed Hawk for all the same reasons!
  13. Cooper's for me, with the big flat head, big beak, more defined eye ridges, slender body and thick toes and feet!
