I went to a local city park that has a lake and was flooded last year so it's full of seed bearing grasses. There were thousands of birds there. It felt like Spring again.

I have six that I need help identifying. I'm hoping that I've guessed right on several of them.

Thanks for all the help.

P.S. No Easter birds this time around. LOL

Where are you located? The first is a sapsucker, yellow-bellied, I believe. Second is a hairy woodpecker. Not sure about the 3rd, maybe a song sparrow, but the 4th is a blue-headed vireo. 5th is maybe a song sparrow again, the last is a vireo, maybe a warbling.

  • Agree with BarnSwallow that it's a Sapsucker
  • Hairy Woodpecker
  • Hairy Woodpecker
  • Lincoln's Sparrow, I think -- the streaking's awfully fine for Song
  • Blue-headed Vireo
  • Song Sparrow
  • Orange-crowned Warbler -- any vireo would have more facial pattern, and that tiny bill only fits an Orange-crowned or Tennessee Warbler.

Thanks for the ID's. I only got one photo for that last one unfortunately. Both orange-crowned or tennessee would be a new bird for me. Can either be confirmed? I live in Omaha Nebraska. Sorry I forgot to add that. It would make it three new ones for my list!
