  1. Thank you!
  2. Is this a young Scissor-tailed Flycatcher? Today in Mid-Missouri. There were Western Kingbirds in the area. The third image has been lightened. Thanks as always. https://www.flickr.com/photos/150868817@N08/shares/7Z2jZ9
  3. Thanks, psweet, this is very helpful. You know, an adult Worm-eating was calling to the fledgling, who was calling back. I'm not sure why I got antsy about the ID. I guess I just wanted to be sure before posting the picture, but I am now.
  4. Yesterday in southern Missouri. This strikes me as a juvenile Worm-Eating Warbler. Adults were in the area, but so were lots of other birds. What do you think? https://www.flickr.com/photos/150868817@N08/shares/n4j659 Thanks as always.
  5. Agree with Am. Redstart. I also think the second is likely a Baltimore Oriole, but it would be difficult to rule out Summer Tanager. In addition, I think I hear a Yellow Warbler.
  6. I agree with Caspian Tern. The bill size and color look right for Caspian, and both Common and Forster's Terns tend to have a longer, forked tail. I identified a pair of these over a lake west of Jefferson City two weeks ago. It is always a thrill to see Caspian Terns (any Tern, really) heading north through Missouri. I wonder if one of my Terns is the one you saw today in Manitoba.
  7. Looks like a Warbling Vireo.
  8. It's possible that the chatter is a Marsh Wren, but I'm having trouble making the gurgling in the first half of the song fit. My vote would be for an excited House Wren.
  9. When I listened to this, I thought Summer Tanager.
  10. That makes sense. Thank you! P
  11. Recorded a week ago here in Mid-Missouri. What was I hearing starting at 2 seconds? It's probably obvious, but I've hit a block. At the time I thought it might be a Tufted Titmouse or a Northern Cardinal, but I'm not sure of either. Possibly a Baltimore Oriole or Summer Tanager prior to 2 seconds. Both were present nearby, as well as an Ovenbird. https://clyp.it/hzea2qkl Thanks as always.
  12. Mid-Missouri, yesterday, at the edge of a marsh. Is that an Alder Flycatcher? Definitely Red-Winged Blackbirds. And a Warbling Vireo way in the back at about 25 secs. Perhaps also Indigo Bunting, Red-Bellied WP, Northern Cardinal, possibly a Yellow Warbler at 21 secs? Noise in the background is a highway 3/4ths mile away. In the foreground a lumbering great ape can be heard breathing. I appreciate your help untangling this. https://clyp.it/u2cwcopb
  13. Thank you. That was what I reported at the time in April, but I'm very glad to have your corroboration. These were both life birds. Now, oddly enough, I need the Common . . . P
  14. Got it, thank you very much. I looked through some old photos and have one more Merganser. What do you think? Thanks as always. https://www.flickr.com/photos/150868817@N08/shares/P0zV8r
  15. I have been trying to photograph this wary bird for a few days here in Mid-Missouri, and I finally did this evening, but the light was challenging, as you'll see, and the bird scared and flew into the cattails. Looks like a Merganser, immature or female. Any way to know just what I was looking at? Thanks as always. https://www.flickr.com/photos/150868817@N08/shares/3eP2Qr
