  6. Dead bird ID

    Taco Mel, You are a ray of sunshine in an otherwise dark world of sharp elbows and win-at-any-cost scamps. Purists of your caliber are far and few between...I salute you and will be watching for one of my DOA ovenbird's relatives to make a flyby and legitimize my new lifer.
  7. Dead bird ID

    Tracking it down with your help I do believe you have it right....What a terrible way to add to a "Lifer List."
  8. Dead bird ID

    Iron River MI today. Came across this poor fellow while cutting the grass today. He was under a window so I'm guessing crashed into it and broke his neck. I don't recognize the head markings. Maybe a Thrush? Thanks for any help.

    Yep, easy-peasy once you know what page to look on. Thanks for the help.
  10. Flycatcher ID Help Needed

  11. Today in Iron River, MI. Upper Peninsula. I think this is an adult male Blue-Headed Vireo. Thanks for your help.
  12. A western Grosbeak? ID Help

    Yes, Fort Range, I do believe you've given a good call. Thinking this must be a juvenile which would account for it's no-fear inquisitiveness.
  13. 2009 July 25th south of Durango, CO. and North of Santa Fe, NM. That schnoz has seed eater grosbeak written all over it....Wish I had a book here to thumb....thanks for the help.
  14. This pic was sent to me this morning by a friend from Sacramento, CA She wonders what bird this may be. She says head and tail appeared yellow. Picture was taken today in Sacramento, CA. Thank you for your help.
