  1. I have never seen a White-winged Crossbill in my area maybe because they like the smaller cones of hemlock, spruce and larch trees. In my county, there is mostly pine and fir trees which the Red Crossbills prefer. ?
  2. You are welcome. Yes, Pine Siskins do seem to favor hanging out with American Goldfinches probably due to their similar seed preferences. ?
  3. Pine Siskin was my first impression based on the beak shape and the heavy streaking. BTW, I'm in South Central WA ...down near The Dalles, OR. ?
  4. I thought it was a Cooper's too but the tail didn't look long enough and even tho it appears to be round I thought it might be worn...so that is why I went with Sharp-shinned but the longer I look at it the more I agree that it is a Cooper's. ?
  5. I'm probably wrong so wait for more input but it looks like a Sharp-shinned Hawk to me. ?
  6. House Finch. The orange-ish coloring is most likely due to diet. ?
  7. Agree with Bird Brain, they look like Killdeer eggs to me too. ?
  8. Yep, it sure does...which is easy to do since there are only four birds in the whole world that starts with an X. ?
  9. Could the bird you're looking for be a Cedar Waxwing? ?
  10. The bill doesn't look quite right for a Blue Grosbeak unless it is deformed. It looks more Crossbill-ish to me. ?
  11. 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.
  12. Oops! Sorry, I have a bad habit of NOT reading the tags...I see this was taken in Alabama on 12/4/18. ?
  13. 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. ?
  14. Spectacular photos! Sorry, but I'm no help in determining male or female. ?
