  1. Thank you for the ID, I didn't know the bird's name...I was just trying to help figure out which bird the OP is referring to since there are quite a few ad banners throughout the site with different birds on them. 🙂
  2. @DavidWorshipper Is this the bird you are asking about?
  3. Interesting sounds...not sure about the long whistle but the short repeat sounds might be from a watering system...like automatic sprinklers. Hopefully, someone else will come along with another suggestion. 🙂
  4. Welcome to Whatbird! Very cool find...thank you for sharing this awesome photo! 🙂
  5. The first bird that comes to mind from the description is an Eurasian Collared-dove. 🙂
  6. @Pam Webb Thwaites glad the mystery has been solved. American Robin's are in the thrush family so you were right on track. I expect most of us have been ''ambushed'' by juvenile or young birds as they look ''full grown'' so therefore they must be something new. 🙂
  7. Here is another sample of a young American Robin. Hope this helps. 🙂 Photo taken 22 JUN 2013 South Central Washington USA
  8. Welcome to Whatbird! Just a thought...could it be a young American Robin? The mottling on the breast and white dots on the wing bars would fit. 🙂
  9. Thank you for this info. After looking at more photos I see the difference between the Common and Hooded...and agree with Hooded. 🙂
  10. Pay no mind to me...seems everyone thinks they are Hooded...well, they are mergansers for sure, lol! 🙂
  11. I think they are Common Merganser because they have dark eyes and not yellow eyes like Hooded Mergansers do.
  12. I'm used to seeing the ones with no green so this one caught my eye as different ...your explanation answered my question, thank you. 🙂
  13. Allen's are not in my area so it is a Rufous ...I just don't recall seeing a male with green on the head and back that's why I asked. Thank you for your help. 🙂
  14. Thank you! The belly is a lot lighter than what I'm used to seeing. 🙂
  15. Is this a Say's Phoebe or something else? The light color is throwing me off. Thank you! 🙂 Photo taken 03 MAY 2020 Pacific Northwest/ South Central Washington USA / Klickitat County /P5231184
  16. Any thoughts on these hummingbirds? Are they just regular Rufous or could they be Green-backed? Thanks for your help. 🙂 Photo taken 11 MAY 2020 Pacific Northwest/ South Central Washington USA / Klickitat County /P5110946 Photo taken 03 MAY 2020 Pacific Northwest/ South Central Washington USA / Klickitat County /P5030664
  17. Maybe a Hooded or Bullock's Oriole...they have a tendency to use low-hanging limber branches for their nests. 🙂
  18. Have you looked at Orioles? They are larger than warblers but they will come to hummingbird feeders. 🙂

  20. I have an Olympus camera and if the on-board memory is full and there is not a memory card in the slot then my camera has a warning chime, the screen shows ''memory full'' and will not take a photo. Otherwise, if the on-board memory is not full and the memory card is not in the slot then my camera will take photos until the memory space is full. 🙂
  21. Ack! I hate when that happens. I think most digital cameras come with a small memory base that can be used if you don't have a memory card...have you checked it to see if there are any photos on it. 🙂
  22. Sounds like a Northern Cardinal to me but wait for more input. 🙂
