Bottom of the Barrel #2


Recommended Posts

first bird seen january 31 2020 in central NC. super quick fly by, im surpised the pic turned out as well as it did. i got my binoculars on it long enough to know id wouldnt have time to identify it in the field, so i took a quick pic. my best guess is Eastern Towhee.

the 2nd and 3rd pics were taken in northern ohio (basically on the lake) or south central ohio, but both were definitely taking in the month of june. kinda looks like another Eastern Towhee?

and the last two pics were taken in south central ohio june 2013. bird is under a deck of a cabin. best guess is Eastern Phoebe.

a push in any direction is appreciated!

The last two look like an EAPH but there's a lot more dark on the chest / 'wing pits' than I would expect.

olive sided flycatcher?  Seems a weird place for that to perch as well though... and I'd think a swallow or an olive sided flycatcher would be a bit odd in NC in January...  hmmm

Last four photos are from June; the last two from 2013.

That's what I get for just skimming the beginning of the message. HA
So either one would be possible, with the swallow being more likely.
I hope someone else will chime in as I'm curious... 
Maybe we could take the photo and lighten it a bit???

i lightened it up using windows built in app. didnt change enough, imo, so i didnt post that altered pic.
