A Couple from Summer

15 posts in this topic

1. Summer, Grasshopper Sparrow?ed7WI.jpg

2. I think this was during fall migration, I have more pictures if needed, but I am thinking Nashville WarblerT7Fr1.jpg

3. Late Summer, I have no idea, maybe Worm-eating Warbler? I do remember I saw a couple of Worm-eating Warblers at the time this was taken.j5nbc.jpgOAlX3.jpg

1: Agree with Grasshopper

2: Looks good for a Nashville

3: I'd say it's a warbler, maybe Black-throated Green

agree with 1 & 2, the last was giving me a Blackburnian Warbler feel,

I'm not so sure about #1 -- it looks like a young Dickcissel. #3 is a Red-eyed Vireo -- the bill's awful heavy for a warbler, and the face pattern doesn't match any warbler that would have that undertail pattern.

Okay, so far have:

2. Nashville Warbler

3. Red-eyed Vireo, I don't know why I didn't think of that before, seeing as several were present that day.

And as for number 1, I have another picture here, cropped and lightened a bit.JqYlI.jpg

Yeah, that closer shot looks good for a very young Grasshopper.

that last one doesnt look like a vireo to me. the line through the eye and other markings dont look crisp enough and vireos dont have streaking on the sides of the breast or a black spot under the neck..

I don't see any streaking on the neck, and the couple of black spots on the neck look more like misplaced feathers to me. Any of the warblers that lack black at the base of the underside of the tail also either lack a eye-stripe, or combine it with dark auriculars, which this bird clearly doesn't have.
