Couple of Domestics and an Empid...

Recommended Posts

I've got some birds that I need help with, and some bugs and herps, but I'll do a separate post for those.

I found a couple of domestic fowl today, and wanted to see if I could narrow them down to a more specific species than Domestic Goose sp. I'm pretty sure the second one is a domestic mallard.

And I just wanted confirmations on this empid being an AcadianAcadian Flycatcher https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/362516991

Thank you!

Agree with domestic mallards. Flycatcher does look like Acadian with that broad, pale bill, narrow, yellowish eyering, and greenish appearance above. I'm just not sure whether the primary projection is long enough, so I'm not super sure. Location?

Central Tennessee. Also, the white bird was almost twice the size of the beige one. Still a mallard?
