Swarmed by hybrids??
Neubauje posted a topic in Help Me Identify a North American BirdThis morning our feeders and backyard were suddenly swarmed by a flock of what I initially thought were cowbirds or catbirds, but upon closer inspection they all displayed a starling-like patch of dark-with-speckles under their wings and around their chests... those species don't create hybrids, do they? I wasn't able to get any pictures, but they were shaped a lot more like a cowbird than a starling. There had to have been at least twenty of them! I live in a suburban area on the northeast side of Columbus, Ohio.
owl bird id by sound only
Wendall63 posted a topic in Help Me Identify a North American BirdThis sound clip was recorded at the end of April in Ohio. We often hear these owls hooting in the distance and I finally got a (horrible) recording of one of them. It is very faint, around 8-10 seconds into the sound clip. Is it a great horned owl? bird-id-help.mp3
Red-shouldered Hawk in Ohio?
bkgs66 posted a topic in Help Me Identify a North American BirdI took this pic thinking it was the same Red-tailed Hawk I had photographed earlier, but when I brought it up on my computer, I realized it had NO red tail! I looked it up and think it's a Red-shouldered Hawk, but they are said to be uncommon in central Ohio, and I had never seen one before. Could someone please confirm? And also let me know about their presence in Ohio if you know, and if they normally live peacefully near Red-tailed Hawks. Thanks.
