  1. Yesterday, SW PA, unfortunately both shots were "distant" and the swan was photographed "through brush" so it is a bit blurry. 1. Is this a Trumpeter Swan? Lately at our park there has been one sighted and this one was off by its lonesome with some ducks. I did not see any flocks of Tundra Swans around, and I am aware of the sightings of a lone Trumpeter Swan as of late (saw it elsewhere), but when the lake froze over a lot of birds got displaced from their usual spots. People have been seeing a Trumpeter on and off for months, so I was trying to see if this was it. Best photo, others had the bird diving upside down and you could only see the feet. 2. What type of bird of prey? If possible, I know it is pretty bad. Only shot.
  2. Are both these the same type of swan, or is "A" Tundra and "B" Trumpeter? A. B.
  3. Can't tell what this is, can anyone else? https://flic.kr/p/2kriEF3
  4. Which female scaup? 1. 2. I know this is bad, what type of duck? Only shot.
  5. SW PA, Sunday. I wasn't sure if any of these are identifiable. 1. 2. 3. 4. Green Wing Teal? 5.
  6. Thanks. I was pretty sure that was what it was, but I wanted a second opinion.
  7. Recently where these Tundra Swans were was seen a Trumpeter for a very long time by itself. Then we got a bunch of Tundras in the same area. I want to be sure that amongst the photos I got yesterday, when I report them none are accidentally the Trumpeter (which may or may not still be hanging around). 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.
  8. What can I say. It was dark out. This bird came out of nowhere (well, I was actually standing in a wetland, birding) and I tried to get its picture but my camera did not want to focus due to the darkness (it was really overcast). I was wondering if anyone was good at telling what it could be from the rotten photos I got, and its general shape?
  9. Yeah, sorry I just realized I misnumbered those. I tried to fix it. It wouldn't let me, I think I waited too long. Number them how you like.
  10. Sorry if any of these are dark, it was foggy and murky out. 1. Nashville Warbler? 2. Rose Breasted Grosbeak Female? 3. Type of Kinglet? Same bird: 4. Don't know, only shot: 5. Swamp sparrow? Only shot.
  11. 1. Type of warbler? 2. This one might be the same thing, not sure. 3. Are either or both of these Lincoln's Sparrows? A B. 3. Type of Duck? Only shot, spooked it and it flew off. 4. Carolina Wren or Red Breasted Nuthatch or neither? Sorry, it was raining and dark out.
  12. 1. Not sure what it is, but it didn't look like a palm or a yellow-rumped to me.
