South Padre Island, Texas Birds (Part 1)

Recommended Posts

Headed down to the south Texas shore this morning in search of Wood Storks (which I found in abundance, exciting!), but also stopped a couple other places and snapped photos of some new/difficult to identify (for me) birds. Any and all help appreciated!

  • Photos 1 and 2, same bird: I struggle with warblers a lot, but is this maybe a Tennessee Warbler?
  • Photo 3: I'm pretty confident on this one, but it would be a lifer, so just 100% confirming: Inca Dove
  • Photo 4: Ruby-Throated Hummingbird?
  • Photo 5, different bird: Also Ruby-Throated Hummingbird?
  • Photo 6: Couldn't get this one to hold still for a millisecond, but maybe the tail is enough to confirm American Redstart?

Have a few more, so I'll be making a second post in a minute or two. Thanks for any help!

All look correct to me unless Black-chinned Hummingbirds are in the area. 

They are occasionally reported at this location, but only very rarely. Last ebird report for a Black-Chinned Hummingbird at this site was April of this year, so theoretically possible but would be really uncommon I think.
