Hello, I am going through some old photos from Montana taken last Summer, and I've been trying to ID all the birds I saw. As a Floridian, I am not as familiar with some of these. Let me know if I am correct! 1.Cassin's Finch Female 2.Clay-Colored Sparrow 3.Slate-Colored Fox Sparrow 4.Ruby-Crowned Kinglet? 5.Golden-Crowned Kinglet? 6.Hammond's Flycatcher or Least Flycatcher. 7.Willow Flycatcher 8.Willow Flycatcher 7.Hammond's Flycatcher? 8.Western-Wood Peewee 9.9. This is the most difficult one in my opinion. I am pretty sure it is a juvenile Yellow-Rumped (Audubon's) Warbler. Note the yellow throat, thinner beak, and insectivorous diet. Thank you for the help! Those flycatchers were tricky...
This was taken at the end of August in a marshy area in Southeast Michigan. There was an adult Song Sparrow (I think in the same tree, but not the same time) and two adult Swamp Sparrows in the general area. What is this? These were taken 9/19 in Dearborn, Michigan. Heavily cropped, far away, bad pics, etc. I'm pretty sure I know what it is, but my guess would be a lifer and I don't want to influence responses.
