  1. I knew something looked a little off, but couldn't peg what, and it looked ok for a Little Blue. What exactly points to the hybrid?
  2. It looks good to me, although I have ZERO experience with Henslow's. The streaks on the breast rule out Grasshopper, and I believe the darker malar rules out LeConte's.
  3. Looks good for a Little Blue Heron. Was this taken recently?
  4. I'd like to see a shot of the wings to see that good old primary projection, but he is awfully yellow, and that eyering is bright, so Least is what I'd lean toward, as well.
  5. On the old forum, we did have spreadsheets, when we did the state contests. All of that was lost in the big forum crash of '18, though. . .
  6. I didn't know how else to title it. Lol. On my local Audubon group, someone has a pair of Brown-headed Nuthatches nesting in a bluebird box. At my house, a wren house I've had out for years is finally being used. . . .by a pair of chickadees? I thought they liked tube shaped structures. They seems to be doing well, I spied a baby in there yesterday. Has anyone else experienced birds nesting somewhere unexpected? (Other than wrens, we know those Carolinas are CRAZY. Lol.)
  7. I had one at Kennesaw Mountain in Georgia this past Saturday, as well as a number of Indigo Buntings.
  8. A rule with birding, is apparent size of a lone bird can be VERY deceptive.
  9. Ah, true. Looking at the date, either female or young male is possible.
  10. This is a female American Redstart. Check out the funky tail pattern.
  11. Yes, looks good for Hermit. That last photo, you can see the red tinge of the tail.
  12. I'll confirm Hermit Thrush on #2 and #6, based on that red tail contrasting with a browner body.
  13. I'd guess Cormorant on the second one, based on neck length, and overall gut feeling.
  14. Yes, I'd lean Orange-crowned on this one. Yellow wouldn't have the light eyering look.
  15. Welcome to Whatbird! It seems your picture didn't show up. Let us know if you need assistance with that! Common pigeons and doves here on the east coast are: Rock dove/Pigeon, Mourning Doves, and Eurasian Collared Doves.
  16. House Finch. Purple has a more contrasting face pattern, a nice raspberry color, and the brown streaks would either be absent or much lighter and less dense.
  17. Pine Warbler with that bright coloring and wingbars.
  18. And now we have a squirrel that has developed a taste for hummingbird nectar. . . . 🤨🤨🤨
  19. It is indeed a warbler! A Yellow-rumped Warbler. Note the yellow armpits, and the yellow rump peeking out from under the wings in the second shot.
  20. The past two days birding I've had Yellow-throated Vireo, Blue-headed Vireo, American Redstart, Prairie Warbler, and Black-throated Warbler. Here they come!
  21. Redstart it is! Every spring, I have to get reacquainted with all these dang warbler calls. Ack!
