    is this a wren?

    Looks like a wren and I would guess Pacific wren over house wren based on this dark photo. I did not know where Port Gamble Heritage Park was until I googled it and found it is in the state of Washington.
  3. All from Saturday in Chicago. All have more photos if it would be helpful. 1) Female orchard oriole? DSC06154r by Mark Ross, on Flickr 2) Orange-crowned warbler?

    Michigan Warbler

    Cropped and lightened first photo. Thought it would let me nail the ID. Still not sue though.
  6. From Sunday in Chicago. 1) 2 photos of this bird. I want to call this a bank swallow. DSC05729r by Mark Ross, on Flickr DSC05698r swallow by Mark Ross, on Flickr 2) Huge eye. No breast spots like thrush. Don't know. DSC05685r by Mark Ross, on Flickr DSC05685rr2 by Mark Ross, on Flickr 3) Throwing this one in because it strikes me as odd. BTBW that is all black.

    Midwest butterfly

    Thank you Psweet! My cheap little guide showed them only with blue spots and no red/orange spots. Need a better butterfly guidebook!

We saw it between slats in a wooden fence in Cerillos running through a yard filled with rusty junked cars. Good trip. All birding done while doing family activities with the wife and kids.
