  1. Towhee and sparrow

    Thanks psweet. Those are the 3 other possibilities that I was thinking about and they all look very similar to me. I've seen Chipping Sparrows before, but I was still unsure with this one.
  2. I don't know if these photos provide enough detail to make positive id's... All photos taken yesterday in Gilbert, AZ (Phoenix area). Photos are from different pond areas in the same preserve. It's possible these are all Least Sandpipers but I'd like to get opinions from more experienced birders. Thanks! 1- 2- 3- 4-
  3. Bell's Vireo?

    This photo was taken on Oct. 9th in Tucson, Arizona. Is this a Bell's Vireo?

    Here is an additional image of the sparrow
  5. Towhee and sparrow

    Thanks psweet! I have more photos of the sparrow, but all in that harsh light. In one it's head is turned facing back. Perhaps that would help in identifying it. I'd post it in this thread but its only allowing me to add a tiny photo here, which probably wouldn't help. It seems like that is the general size restriction. I don't know how I was able to attach the larger images to begin with. I don't have a Flickr account at this point and that seems to be the best way to post photo here. I'll look into it. Thanks again!
  6. Photos taken a few days ago near Tucson, Arizona. I think this is a Canyon Towhee but this species isn't commonly recorded on eBird at the location, and I would need to add it with an explanation. The photo of course would be a big help if it is in fact a Canyon Towhee. There are a few different Sparrow species that seem like they could fit for the bird in this photo, none of which I am very familiar with. Thanks for the help!
  7. Photos were taken a few days ago near Tucson, Arizona. Can someone please tell me whether this is a Hermit Thrush or a Swainson's Thrush and explain how to differentiate them. Thanks!
