Florida/Texas road trip bird ID help #4

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

to wrap up the shorter Florida leg of the trip:

1)  Hm, the bill confuses me? Was far away but did not seem larger than a sparrow?
Location: Everglades NP-- Shark Visitor Center area (trails)

1. Palm Warbler, I think

2. Blue-gray Gnatcatcher

3. All crows and a grackle. Don’t ask which species. I can never tell.

4. Correct

5. Correct

Thanks!

Funny thing, eBird only lists Common Grackle and Boat-Tailed Grackle for locations in FL and my book also doesn't show Florida as location where Great-Tailed would be found. The ones I saw were mostly very similar to Great-Tailed so I usually didn't even take photos of them.
