Good morning, Whatbirders!  Let's do something a bit different.  I suspect y'all will quickly figure out what these birds have in common.  Please don't post it for a couple of days so others can have a chance (or post it in white text).

Only one photo of each species, please!  You don't have to have photos of all three to post; one or two is fine.

Chihuahuan Meadowlark

Western Flycatchers

Cordilleran Flycatcher & Pacific Slope Flycatcher

The Pacific found in Florida (very rare) but confirmed by the FORSC. This confirmation has been challenged but so far nothing has come of that challenge that I am aware of.

I have no Chihuahuan Meadowlark but of course do have both of the very similar Eastern and Western Meadowlark. Chihuahuan I believe has only been separated out recently. So not certain if okay to post E & W Meadowlark.

Not sure where CS is going with American Goshawk but here is a Northern Goshawk.

You may need to explain the first part so the second part doesn't create confusion.

Loggerhead Shrike chasing a Kangaroo Rat in the Mojave Desert. July 2019

That's a great photo but shrikes were last week's bird!  The week's species change on Sunday, usually early in the morning. 

This week's birds are Western Flycatcher, Chihuahuan Meadowlark, and American Goshawk.  (There's a mystery theme as to what these three have in common :classic_wink: )
