  1. The bill doesn't look quite right for a Blue Grosbeak unless it is deformed. It looks more Crossbill-ish to me. ?
  2. You didn't mention what time of year this sighting occurred...Spring, Summer, June, August...it might be helpful to know that information too. ? What about a juvenile European Starling...they are a drab gray and in my experience with them, they will eat almost anything.
  3. Oops! Sorry, I have a bad habit of NOT reading the tags...I see this was taken in Alabama on 12/4/18. ?
  4. Welcome to Whatbird! Where was this photo taken at? It is always helpful to add a location as it can be a great help in narrowing down the possibilites of any given bird. ?
  5. Spectacular photos! Sorry, but I'm no help in determining male or female. ?

  10. Yes, Pine Siskin. Congrats! on it being a new bird. ?
  11. Here we go again................. American Goldfinch. ?
  12. I'm probably way off base here but it sort of looks like a Meadowlark to me. Hopefully, someone else will chime in with more help. ?
  13. Welcome to Whatbird! It is a Chukar as The Bird Nuts said. A wild bird in some areas and a farm-raised bird in others so it may be an escapee. Where are you located? I doubt that it is in need of care...it looks perfectly fine to me. If you think it needs food birdseed or cracked corn are good choices and a container with fresh water. ?
  14. It could be suffering from a window strike or a predator attack. ?
  15. Oh no, the dreaded X. Xantus's Hummingbird. ? [Photo credit: Wikipedia/ By marlin harms - Flickr: Xantus's Hummingbird, Hylocharis xantusii, CC BY 2.0, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=14943535]
