"Animals, too, are sentient creatures of God. It is a sin to torture them,
to allow them to suffer, or to kill them uselessly.
Nevertheless, man may not place love of animals over love of man."
Pope John Paul II

Agree with Swamp. They can have yellow lores, or at least that's what I've learned over the course of my Whatbirding.
All of the Swamp's that I've seen close-up here in New Hampshire all had yellow lores. Location thing maybe?

Interesting. Sibley, Beadle and Rising, Petersen, Crossley, and All About Birds omit this fact, although I just found at Birds of North America a reference to Dwight, Jr., J (1900) who mentions the yellow or buff line above the lores.
Yes, really odd to find such a noticeable characteristic missing from so many guides! "Someone" should look thru the yellow-lored swampie pics posted here to see if there is any geographical coincidence...
