cormorant and...


Recommended Posts

and a mystery bird from Birding in Massachusetts FB group

This cormorant was seen the other day here in NW Arkansas... seemed a little small and the bill sure seemed plain to me. Since it was all alone it was difficult to compare size. It didn't make me feel like it was neotropic but, still seemed small and plain to me.  Just a DCCO? or?

I love the guesses people give for some birds... someone asked about an orchard oriole or a brown thrasher. This is clearly neither... but I think they're focused more on the color... which I can't tell if it's the actual color or not... but this bird has me scratching my head a bit. (not my photo, taken in MA)

Second bird gives me Red Crossbill vibes

I took a photo of the picture on my screen for Merlin and that was their first suggestion. I can see that as far as color goes but I'm just not sure what I'm seeing as far as shapes and patterns go...
crossbill makes a lot more sense than oriole or thrasher... ha
