    Go Preds!
  1. Seen this morning around the same time as Cooper's Hawk and Turkey Vulture in Middle Tennessee. I thought it was just a crow when I took the shots, but after uploading the beak looks off. Not sure it's IDable, so many thanks for any help.
  2. Eastern Wood-Pewee?

    Shot the morning of 9/10 in Middle Tennessee. Just want to make sure I'm not missing something. Thanks!
  3. several bad blurs

    I'm no expert but my guess for #5 is a White-breasted Nuthatch...I get the same shots of mine.
  4. Scarlet Tanager?

    Taken this morning in Middle Tennessee. Guessing a female or nonbreeding/immature male? Would be a lifer and #100 for my county...
  5. Eastern Flycatchers

    Thanks for the help!
  6. Eastern Flycatchers

    Seen chasing one another, then perching mid-canopy in same tree this morning in Middle Tennessee. One of them (I think) ended up perching at the top of a very large tree 3 minutes later. Neither sang. Eastern Wood Pewees or Eastern Phoebes? Or could they be one of the Empid. species? Would an Eastern Wood Peewee have the yellow wash even on its throat? bird 1 bird 2 bird 1 or 2
  7. Warbler ID Help Please

    Seen this morning in Middle Tennessee. Not sure if it's showing a little leftover of a black cap. Pine? Bay-breasted? Blackpoll? Am I close? Thanks!
  8. Female Indigo Bunting?

    Thanks. My thoughts exactly. Here are a couple more shots, the first showing a goldfinch in the bottom-right corner for comparison (the beak looks huge in this one).
  9. Female Indigo Bunting?

    Seen this morning in Middle Tennessee. I'm not confident in differentiating between Indigo Bunting and Blue Grosbeak yet, but then again I may be wrong altogether. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
  10. Louisiana Waterthrush?

    Wow, that is early. I did notice some nearby August sightings. I must be holding out too much hope for those migration rarities (a girl can dream). Lots to learn about the warblers! Thanks again for the schooling.
  11. Louisiana Waterthrush?

    Ha! Wishful thinking on my part. Thanks for the help.
  12. Louisiana Waterthrush?

    Seen this morning in Middle Tennessee. Blurry shots included. I think the bird on the ground is the bird in the tree. I'm hoping I'm right on this one...it would be a lifer! Thanks for the help!
  13. Field Sparrow?

    Forgot to post this one...seen the morning of Sept. 20 in Middle Tennessee. I was thinking Field Sparrow, but that wingbar looks almost too bold to me. Thanks!
  14. hawk? gull? ID help please

    Thank you.
  15. hawk? gull? ID help please

    Thank you for the great comment! Both are rare for my area according to eBird but it looks like the Peregrine Falcon has more recent sightings in Middle Tennessee/Northern Alabama than the Mississippi Kite, which has more recent sightings in Western TN, so that helps. I always seem to catch this bird flying away from me north to south, so here's hoping I get him head on someday for better pics. Thanks again, psweet.
