I think this is the last one for tonight. Again, all taken within the previous 7 days at Cromwell Valley Park in Baltimore County, Maryland.

#1 Too much eye ring for Eastern Wood Pewee?

  • I'd lean towards Wood-Pewee, although there's a lot of dark on the lower mandible
  • Think so
  • Yes

1) Pass.
2) I'm getting more of a REVI vibe, too. I think I can make out dark lores and the lower border of the cap looks dark. Tough photo, though. Could be wrong.
3) Although American is more likely, there's no way to rule out any Fish Crows being in this bunch :)

Not from the photo, that is. I assume that since the murder of crows is so large, at least some of the birds would be vocalizing.
Ben, do you remember what they sounded like?

From Dec-Aug I have more Fish Crow than American, and from Sep-Nov I have more American than Fish, but I have never found the two species in the same flock.

No, I remember hearing them at the time and they sounded like crows to me. I'm not real solid on the American vs. Fish calls. And at this point I really wouldn't be able to remember the calls of my group.
