    Birds, Oldies music,
  1. Near a Loggerhead Shrike

    Definitely a shadow.
  2. Help identifying two birds

    I believe that hawk is a Red-shouldered, juvenile Eastern.
  3. Blue Grosbeak?

    You probably have an immature male singing. Most young birds look like the female until they begin to grow their adult plumage.
  4. House or Pacific Wren?

    A Pacific Sparrow. Possibly a male.
  5. Song ID...just a robin?

    One bird that could make it much louder is the Mockingbird. They mimic other birds, animals and much else, louder or quieter. Other birds can mimic also but the Mockingbird is the best at it.
  6. Pocono mountain gray bird

    It sounds very much like a Dark-eyed Junco.
  7. Multiple ID's needed

    #1 and #2 are both Downy because of short beak and short black mark on neck, Hairy is longer #3 is female Ring-necked Duck #4 Dark-eyed Junco
  8. Confirm that it's not a house finch

    That is definitely a male Purple Finch.
  9. Blue Jays

    I believe that I have had about the usual amount in my backyard in central GA.
  10. Northern Cardinals

    There are probably so many of them because it can be one of three things: 1) They might be preparing for a migrating trip and stocking up on food, but due to your location this one is least likely. 2) They might be already on a migrating trip and stopping to refuel on food. This one is a maybe. 3) They might be eating after a migrating trip. Taking the location into account it sounds the most likely.
  11. Some kind of domestic game bird?

    I think it the Montezuma Quail.
  12. Please help me identify this water bird

    I agree with PyrrhuloxialsAmazing, it looks like the the Gull-billed Tern to me too.
  13. Confirm a Swallow; and a Crane?

    You may have a Bank Swallow - maybe a juvenile or immature if their underparts are grayer.
  14. wucka wucka wucka call

    Here is what a Northern Flicker sounds like, and here is what a Pileated Woodpecker sounds like. I think that they sounded pretty much the same except that the Flicker was quieter, softer than the Pileated. The Flicker has a sort of a gray-brown body speckled with black and a red mark on his hindcrown-nape area. While the Pileated is basically an overall black with a red crown, crest and forehead. I hope that these sounds and descriptions help some.
  15. Rose-breasted and Blue Grosbeaks

    That is what I have always read in various books that I have plus online sources. I just thought that something which I was unaware of had changed. Thank you all again.
