2 warblers and a thrush

Recommended Posts

All from today in Chicago.

1)  Looks like a prairie to me.

2)  Cape May?

3)  When I saw this I thought it was a wood thrush up at the top of a 30 foot tall tree.  But upon further review I think it might be a robin.

1) Orange-crowned, I think. Prairie would show stronger face markings and better-defined streaks. Also, Prairie is quite rare in the immediate Chicago area.

2) Yes, I think you're right.

3) I think this is a Starling. With the brown wings, probably a youngster still molting in his first adult feathers.
