    Yes, a Downy.

    Mountain Bluebird or other?

    Looks like a female Brown-headed Cowbird.

    Whatbird's Young Birders!

    By the way, I forgot to say what I'm doing for two weeks -- I'm with my family in DC, Philly, and NY! I'm in DC now. I've already gotten 3 lifers: CACH, REVI and BBWA. Possibly FICR and BRTH. I haven't even birded yet!

    Really? I thought it was just me. I'll have to re-upload.
  7. What are the birds you are most looking forward to seeing again this summer? Mine is the Western Wood-Pewee, because their songs are so beautiful.

    My camera broke!

    Oh no!! That's a bummer I don't use a DSLR but I'm sure lenses come loose pretty regularly and can be repaired by forking over a ton of money.

    Cassin's or Western Kingbird

    Those white outer tail feathers say Western Kingbird on 1, 2, and 3. 4 looks like it might be a Cassin's, but I'm not sure on either 4 or 5.
  10. No, I haven't! But I think last year a Red-tailed was found in a Bald eagle nest. Interesting!

    I'm late, but I agree with Red-tailed; and I would argue it's an intermediate rather than a straight dark morph due to the faint contrast between breast and belly.

    Never? . To be fair I only had one, on trig and calc.

    Yeah I did! I was actually looking for a name for a character in a story I was writing, and came up with this after looking through my international bird guide, and it's stuck with me every since.

    Bird book recommendation?

    Maybe BirdNote?

    Plumbeous Vireo?

    Two Note Call - Same Note

    The quality of the sound is tinny and more harsh -- the last two notes are sharp and clear, unlike a Bald Eagle's. It's hard to distinguish sometimes! The Steller's Jays I get here mimic Red-Tailed Hawks really well and it's taken me a bit to know the difference.

    The Crazed Quiz

    First thought was Hammond's Flycatcher but no wing bars...

    ... I'm sure that's what I meant as well. Most of my mistakes are accidentally writing down the wrong bird lol :p EDIT: I did write Golden-crowned Kinglet. Where was the error?
