  1. NW Ohio Birds

    I agree with these sharp IDs. For #3, I agree with Dowitcher sp. in the middle. With all that slate and white, and the gray neck, and the eye line, and the cap, and the straight black bill, could the bird on the far right in #3 be a nonbreeding Wilson's Phalarope?
  2. Vireos?

    Two white wing bars, faint eye ring broken at front and back, long tail. I agree with Bell's Vireo. In your second picture it is doing a convincing impression of Salvador Dali.
  3. More Middle Tennessee shorebirds

    Nice bird! Congratulations.
  4. A Raft of Lake Birds

    My thought was Pied-billed Grebes too. Thank you.
  5. Empid

    Of course! Least it is. Thank you.
  6. Western Sandpiper - I think

    Rusty scapulars, broad-based down-curved bill, black legs. Yes, I think so.

    And this Mid-Missouri flycatcher with the heavy eye ring sallying in the undergrowth? I called it Acadian in the field but have never seen one this low to the ground. https://www.flickr.com/photos/150868817@N08/shares/2UN7ig Thanks again.
  8. A Raft of Lake Birds

    These birds recently arrived at a lake in Mid-Missouri. They were very far away, and I saw them right at dusk with five minutes to spare. The photos are poor; however I hope an ID can be extracted. My scope view was essentially the same as what you'll see here. What do you think? https://www.flickr.com/photos/150868817@N08/shares/9qm911 Thanks as always.
  9. Which Perching Bird Have I Got Here?

    Thanks so much! That was my thought, but I wanted to be especially sure, since this is a life bird for me. Surprisingly (for me at least), this was the bird I set out looking for this morning . . .
  10. Taken today in Mid-Missouri. https://www.flickr.com/photos/150868817@N08/shares/04871F I have a thought, but want to see if I might be right. I wish the pics, especially of the head, were better. Thanks.
  11. trying to figure out what I saw in NC

    Could this have been an Eastern Towhee?
  12. 1) I’m really not sure, but I think that may be an Eastern Bluebird call at the front. There is of course a Common Yellowthroat, and another excited bird at the end, I think a House Wren. There is a Northern Cardinal in back of the recording. 2) You have an Indigo Bunting song, a Common Yellowthroat song, and a Belted Kingfisher rattle in your recording. As far as the “click,” as you put it, I think this is an Indigo Bunting “spit” call. You also have a fourth species in there, possibly a woodpecker (Red-bellied?), but I don’t know. 3) I do not know about the coughing sound, but I do hear a Red-Eyed Vireo, an Eastern Wood-Pewee, a Common Yellowthroat, and a Tufted Titmouse.
  13. Blackbirds

    Thanks so much.
  14. Blackbirds

    As I was leaving my birding spot in MO today I took a picture of these blackbirds without much thought. There were grackles everywhere today, and so I assumed they were either grackles or Brown-headed Cowbirds or that I would figure it out when I got home. The birds are backlit, and the picture is poor. Even so, does anyone want to take a shot? If they're not ID'able, that's fine too. (Is it possible that they are Bobolinks?) Thanks as always. https://www.flickr.com/photos/150868817@N08/shares/9kVPK6
  15. This Sandpiper is giving me a Headache

    Thank you! I thought the legs seemed awfully dark, but I think it's the light and the photo. And that makes a pair of Greater Yellowlegs today.
