Please help ID 3 birds


Recommended Posts

Bill is small, and shape looks completely wrong for Western Wood-Pewee. I don't think we can see the utc well enough to detect smudging or not. I would be shocked if this was Wood-Pewee

Hasan - I'm not sure if this qualifies as smudging or not but definitely marked (a continuation of the extensive marking on the underside of this bird). I have no idea if this is OK for Hammond's, the guides say clean UTC. The bill size looks normal for PeWee, at least to me (rather than the"tiny, dark bill" per Sibley for Hammond's) and the body may look off due to the angle of the photo. However, if you are comfortable with Hammond's that's good, it's better to have a confirmed ID.

I'm done.
