  1. Northern Cardinal for sure, either a young male or molting adult male.
  2. Agreed - your Moderator is wrong. The bill is too short for red-breasted (or common), there is no coloration difference between the head and neck (like in red-breasted) and the overall shape of the bird makes this a hooded merganser.
  3. Your correct, black skimmers. Awesome bird
  4. This is a song sparrow. A lincoln's would have a lite buffy color to the breast and the streaks would be much finer.
  5. Possibly a female red-winged blackbird, hard to tell though with the distortion
  6. Yes - adult male. Notice the crimson red streaks on the breast making it an adult male
  7. Could it have been a yellow-breasted chat?
  8. The bill is the key ID feature here - it is just too large for a bunting. The top of the bill matches smoothly with the slope of the forehead. On a bunting, there is a noticeable notch between the top of the bill and the forehead. Also referencing size and bulkiness - the average bunting is 4.9 inches tall. Average grosbeak is 5.9 inches tall. I don't think we can tell a 1 inch difference from these pics.
  9. Dowitcher - looks like short-billed based on the flat eye stripe. Also dunlin and black-bellied plovers in there
  10. yes, Baltimore Oriole is correct. Congrats on a beautiful bird
  11. I actually think this is a blue grosbeak - the bill is very large compared to a bunting. Also the reddish wings fit grosbeak perfectly
