  1. Hmm, wait for others, but I think the lack of streaking on the undertail coverts says yes.
  2. Ring-billed Gull. One born last year, I believe.
  3. Welcome to Whatbird! I have some guesses, however location would really help! When and where was this video taken? It will also help the moderator know which Identify forum to move it to. 🙂
  4. I was torn between Clay-colored and Brewer's, but I think the streaks on the nape mean Brewer's. Song would have dark streaks on the breast. Edit-apparently was posting at the same time as Melierax!
  5. Just sharing. My daughters and I were strolling on Jekyll Island here in Georgia yesterday. A park ranger caught our attention and showed us the plover chicks. They had hatched just the day before! Cute little buggers. I could not get close enough for decent pictures, but at least you can get an idea.

  6. Your logic is correct. Female Downy Woodpeckers do not have the red. (Juveniles don't either, but your bird is an adult.)
  7. Thanks, y'all. Maybe someday I'll get a handle on peeps. . . .
  8. Definitely an oriole. I think you're right about Bullock's with that much white.
  9. Yes, a vireo, but with the lack of any yellow or green tones, I'm wondering if this is a Plumbeous.
  10. Actually, with that buffy wash behind the stripes down the flanks, I believe this is a Lincoln's.
  11. Ah, I didn't think about range. On ebird, in Texas they don't have any sightings north of the I-10 corridor. Hrmmm.
  12. Ah, with the white cheek, think Creeker has it. No wonder it didn't look quite right for either Broad-winged or Red-shouldered.
  13. Thanks. What shots would be needed to distinguish pure from hybrid?
  14. Eye color rules out an accipiter hawk. They have yellow eyes. I think this is either an immature Broad-winged or Red-shouldered.
  15. Baby birds can be tough to ID, but I think you are correct about it being a grackle.
  16. Despite being poured on multiple times yesterday (and also managing to get sunburned. . .), I had a really good day yesterday. The two I was most excited about, as they were both nemesis birds for me: Roseate Spoonbill by midgetinvasion, on Flickr
  17. I had wondered about Common, but wasn't sure. I think that may be a lifer, too. I need to go back and look. I usually only see Forster's. Thanks!
  18. Yesterday, at a WMA along Georgia's Southern coast. Listed on ebird, the expected species here are Black-bellied Whistling Ducks, Mallard, Wood Ducks, BW Teal, Mottled, Mallard/Mottled hybrid, and American Black Duck/Mottled Hybrid. BW Teal, Wood Duck, and the whistling ducks were all seen. I did not see any male Mallards. (this one is super bad, sorry.) and then this mama and babies
  19. Yesterday, Jekyll Island, GA. Was in a large flock of Royal Terns, and a few Sandwich Terns. Seemed a bit smaller than the Sandwich. And then a different one in flight, this one may not be identifiable. Lastly, please confirm Gull-billed Tern. This was also yesterday, at a WMA along Georgia's coast. It is a lifer for me, which is why I'd like the confirm. 🙂
  20. Sorry for photo quality, the light was trash yesterday, had to bird in between downpours. Taken yesterday, saltmarshes of Jekyll Island, Georgia. And then this one was on the beach side, hanging out with a flock of Semipalmated Plovers
  21. This is actually a gull. I'm terrible with gulls, but I think the pale wingtips means something along the lines of Glaucous or Iceland.
  22. Yes, a Yellowlegs, and I like Lesser for this one.
