  1. Woodpecker (Horrible Photo)

    Hello birdnoob, In reasearching your flying bird I had originally that a Pileated Woodpecker however, when I went through more flight pattern on a Red Headed one I found a picture of one with all white underneath his body and the wings were black on the outer fingers with it’s tail black and in flight the tail feathers are up like your picture. I definitely not the expert here but maybe it might help.

  13. Hutton's Vireo

    Hello zoutedrop, well sorry to say it’s a ruby throat kinglet. Your right about the bill but the kinglets bill is sharper where the bill in the vireo is slightly blunt end. The head on the kinglet is more to size where as the vireos head is a bit larger (almost disproportionately to it’s body. However they can still be mistaken for each other.
  14. Gilded?

    Hello zoutedrop, I think that it’s a Northern Flicker. The orange underside black bib and orange stripe down the lower bill down the neck. Will see.
