  1. White Crowned Sparrow in VT?

    Thanks MN bird
  2. Pretty sure this is a white crowned sparrow. Wish it wasn't hiding
  3. Sparrows in VT

    Thanks psweet
  4. Sparrows in VT

    Looking at images online I now realize what confused me. This bird is probably a juvenile and has not yet matured into the red crown.
  5. Sparrows in VT

    Thanks Bird Nuts. Dang I thought I had a more unusual sparrow of some sort. That crown is what really confused my. I'm used to seeing a pretty uniform reddish cap. The little pink beak fits though.
  6. Sparrows in VT

    I got all these pics today. It was gray and rainy here, and several of these birds were photographed through our not so clean windows, so not as clear as I would like. 1. Chipping Sparrow (pretty sure of this one) 2. Savannah Sparrow? 3. Not sure on this bird. I'm coming up with Clay Colored Sparrow as the likeliest. Considered Grasshopper and White-crowned, but they don't seem to fit. Hope it is Clay Colored.
  7. Lincoln's Sparrow in VT

    Thanks Bird Nuts!
  8. Common Yellowthroat in VT?

    Thanks again psweet and MerMaeve.
  9. I think this is a Lincoln's sparrow, but I am still not sure of myself with some of the sparrows and could use confirmation.
  10. Common Yellowthroat in VT?

    Ah, thanks psweet. I didn't think of pine as this was not really near any pine trees and the wings just didn't look quite as contrasting as I usually see on Pine warblers. Id was driving me nuts. Thanks again.
  11. Seems like I should be able to nail a Common Yellowthroat anytime, but this bird has me a little stumped. Looks a bit too yellow for a Common Yellowthroat, but I have looked through my warbler book and can't come up with anything that fits better for this bird. Nashville should have a grayer hood, not right for Blackburnian and I even considered a Yellow Breasted Chat, but not really right for that either. I'd appreciate others thoughts on this bird.

  13. I got this pic on 9/26 on the islands. I was watching a group of terns actively feeding on a run of fry. There has been reports of many terns there including common, Forster's and arctic. Probably others that I am not aware of as well. My take on this bird is that is just an oddly colored Common Tern without a complete black cap. I thought I would run it by folks here in case it might be something different.
  14. Thanks for the help IvoryBillHope. Glad I got close.
