  1. Mystery Bird

    I saw this bird this morning just outside of Chapel Hill, NC. There were a lot of sparrows in the area, I saw Song and White-throated Sparrows and then this bird. I've thought of a few possibilities, but I'm not sure of any of them. I'd welcome any opinions.

  4. Kinglet confirmatioon please

    I happened to see two Golden-crowned Kinglets together yesterday, they were either agitated or excited, their crowns were all puffed up. One of them had a yellow/gold crown and the other a flaming orange crown. I had never seen that before, but seeing them together really highlighted the orange crown.
  5. Sparrow?

    The season of the sparrow is definitely here in North Carolina. These photos were taken this morning in Chapel Hill. I initially got excited because I thought the bird was a Lincoln's Sparrow, but now I'm leaning more Swamp. I'll love some other opinions...

  7. Sparrow?

    Thanks, I was right with my first thought, funny how that works. I really wanted it to be a Lincoln's, but I have to admit I've fallen into that mindset where you try too hard to "see" what you want to see. One of the reason's I was a little confused is I saw this bird a minute before the other and I'm pretty sure this is a Swamp Sparrow.

  18. Mystery Bird

    Thanks, that was my first thought, but the color of the beak bothered me. It's not a common bird for this area.
