Two songbirds and a hawk

Recommended Posts

  1. Nonbreeding adult/immature Chipping Sparrow. The dark eyeline that goes through the eye and touches the bill is a diagnostic ID feature.
  2. Female/immature male Indigo Bunting. Note the conical bill, browish overall, faint streaking on the breast, and sometimes a little blue on the wings, tail, or rump. Also note the white throat. 
  3. Female/immature Northern Harrier?

Yeah, no white rump means not a harrier. I would say sharpie due to the squared off tail but it could be a coop.

Yep, that's correct. Harriers have distinctive white patches on their rumps.
