  1. Any way to tell what this is/these are? Not sure if both of these are the same bird. I was very far away and they are zoomed-in to the nth degree. Only photos. A. B.
  2. Very possible. I have sometimes problems telling what is an animal sound vs bird. I just didn't think squirrels screeched like that.
  3. I was in a sort of swampy wetland area. There was this bird that kept clucking and then it would make a funny screech. I tried to get a recording but it was windy, so there might be a lot of noise in this. DSCN7894b.mp3
  4. 1. Common Yellowthroat? 2. Not sure which sparrow. Might be too hard to tell. 3. Raptor. Only shot. I know it is terrible.
  5. 1. I thought this might be a Red Tailed Hawk, but its head seemed awfully dark.
  6. I apologize if some of these seem over-exposed, the sun was shining directly on the pines these warblers were in. Tried to darken some. 1. Cape May? 2. Pine Warbler? 3. Not sure 4. Unsure. Too much sun. 5. Unsure 6. May be the same as #5, unsure, again Sun too bright 7. Cape May? 8. Not sure
  7. Thanks. Weirdly I tend to be able to tell the difference more easily with the females.
  8. What do you mean by the leading edge of the wing?
  9. That did not help, the website. I cannot tell the difference between a juvenile bald eagle and a golden eagle, other than there is supposed to be some splotchy white on the juvenile bald eagle, and there isn't really white on the photo I have above. Or in the other photos I have.
  10. Merlin says this is a Golden Eagle. I want to be sure before I report it. It would be a lifer if it is one. SW PA, Today.
  11. 1. Not sure which warbler or vireo this is (sorry only shot, it was very early in the morning and kind of dark):
  12. Is there any way to tell what these are? 1. Flew before I could get a 2nd shot: 2. Not the one behind that is obviously a killdeer, but the smaller one in front. It was fairly zoomed-in, not sure if it is possible to ID
  13. When you say "an adult's thumb," I am an adult female and my thumb is 2 inches long. I think you need to be more specific about the size. Men's thumbs can be much bigger.
  14. After a possible rainstorm (I was away at the time), I came back home to find this egg on my porch. I can only think it blew down from maybe the gutter above (the nearest tree is across the street). Or put there by someone or something. Just trying to ID it, I am guessing it isn't viable. It is next to a nickel for size purposes.
  15. 1. I know these are bad photos, but can anyone tell what this is? 2. American Bittern? 3. What sort of flycatcher might this be? 4. Norther Rough-winged swallow? Other?
