  4. Yes, Pine Siskin. Congrats! on it being a new bird. ?
  5. Here we go again................. American Goldfinch. ?
  6. 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. ?
  7. 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. ?
  8. It could be suffering from a window strike or a predator attack. ?
  9. 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]

  11. I for one and a few others did not say it was a ''bad idea''' I believe we stated, ''that it was not for us''...some of us have been birding for 30-50+ years so we already have an abundance of reference/field guides. Plus most people these days have cell phones that can provide internet access making it super easy to look things up in a few seconds. ?
  12. I think it is a Western...based on bill color and the hint of a possible wing-bar. Please wait for more input as I'm not an expert on Tanager identifications. ?
  13. Well, I know where STL is so I have a good idea of where you're located. Always happy to meet a fellow Missourian. ?
  14. Hi...Thank you for your help. No, I live in Washington but I was born and raised in Northern Missouri in a little ''one-horse, two dog town'' called Sheridan. I was visiting my parents in Independence when I took the photos. ?
