  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. This is a song sparrow. A lincoln's would have a lite buffy color to the breast and the streaks would be much finer.
  4. Possibly a female red-winged blackbird, hard to tell though with the distortion
  5. Yes - adult male. Notice the crimson red streaks on the breast making it an adult male
  6. Could it have been a yellow-breasted chat?
  7. 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.
  8. Dowitcher - looks like short-billed based on the flat eye stripe. Also dunlin and black-bellied plovers in there
  9. yes, Baltimore Oriole is correct. Congrats on a beautiful bird
  10. I actually think this is a blue grosbeak - the bill is very large compared to a bunting. Also the reddish wings fit grosbeak perfectly
  11. A rather early arriving indigo bunting. Surprised he's that far north this early in the year
  12. Black tern 100% They nest near Point Pelee
  13. millipede - Every year, we put our used Christmas tree outside near our feeder station and every year we get a chipping sparrow nesting in it. By nesting time the needles have fallen off and its just a dead tree laying there, but they use it. We prop the tree up against a large lilac bush and tie it with sting to prevent it from blowing over
  14. You have got a red-shoulder hawk. Unlikely that it ate your cat but stranger things have happened! Welcome to Whatbird
