  1. Wet bird. OKC

    House Finch.
  2. Need ID help Dungeness NWR, WA

    I could see it as a female Western -- a closer look at the primary extension and the face pattern would help. My first thought was actually N. Wheatear, but I can't reconcile the face and the wings with that.
  3. Need ID help Dungeness NWR, WA

    Looks like a female Mountain Bluebird.
  4. ID by song/call please

    Not sure about the first one -- sounds better for Bushtit to me, but I'm not very familiar with either call. The second one sounds like a Junco.
  5. Buff-bellied hummingbird? Texas 78070

    Just a note for future observations -- Buff-bellied has a green throat, making it look hooded.
  6. Scoter - Western Mass

    The other two ducks are Common Goldeneye.
  7. Chinese Bird

    Check out Collared Finchbill (Spizixos semitorquata). It's actually one of the bulbuls.
  8. North Dakota Rodent

    Either Franklin's or Richardson's Ground Squirrel. I'm thinking Richardson's based on the buff crown and the habitat, but a look at the tail would be diagnostic.
  9. South TX: Goldfinch? and ???

    Possibly White-winged for the dove, I'd want to see the tail pattern better to say for sure.
  10. Ring-billed Gull

    That smooth brown mottling below indicates a young Herring Gull, actually.
  11. Accipiter Help

    Looks like a Sharpie to me, compact, short tail, blotchy streaks below.
  12. That White-throated is a nice find out that way.
  13. Sounds rather like a White-crowned Sparrow. There are quite a few sparrows that have buzzy little trills like that. The Chip-burr sounds rather different, actually, with a very sharp, short chip and all of the emphasis in the burr on the beginning.
  14. South Dakota Birds

    Sharp-tailed Grouse Wilson's Phalarope Sharp-tailed Grouse Sharp-tailed Grouse White-faced Ibis Greater Prairie-Chicken Wilson's Snipe Sharp-tailed Grouse Marbled Godwit Marbled Godwit Yellow-bellied Sapsucker Lesser Scaup Baird's Sandpiper (?)
