  1. Could I please have some help with this sparrow? Photo taken a couple of days ago in the San Francisco Bay area. Thanks! Sparrow
  2. Hi all, I was hiking/birding at the Sandy River Delta this morning in Multnomah County, Oregon. I was unable to ID a sparrow that I saw toward the end of our hike. Luckily, I was able to take some good photos and I have since spent some quality time with my Sibley's. I believe that I have identified the bird as a 1st Winter white-throated sparrow, but I still have some doubts. Thoughts? Thanks, Duke
  3. Gull & Sparrow & Duck

    Would y'all say this is a GW Teal x Shoveler? It's the ugliest Teal I've ever seen if not! Also, there is not option for that hybrid on eBird. DSC_0034 by Dawn Johnson, on Flickr Is this just a G Black Backed? DSC_0006 by Dawn Johnson, on Flickr What Sparrow? Sadly the only photo I got before he disappeared over a hill. (In the middle, not the Juncos). DSC_0043 by Dawn Johnson, on Flickr
  4. Song Sparrow

    Hi all, I reasoned this to be a song sparrow, because it looks like one to me by also by elimination, since I know it's not an American Tree, White-throated or House Sparrow (the other wintering sparrows in NW Vermont). But then I didn't consider a Savannah Sparrow, so I changed it to sparrow sp. until I feel certain. I still think it's a Song Sparrow due to redder coloring, lack of any light/yellow around eyebrow or lores, but want to get other opinions. https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S42752337 Thank you, Graham
  5. This was near St. George, Utah (Southern) in very scrubby habitat. Peterson's doesn't show the range extending into Utah.
  6. Obviously a male northern cardinal. Golden fronted woodpecker? The eye stripe confuses me on the sparrow in flight.
  7. New York City, Nov. 9, 2017 I'm stil confused by the Savannah and Lincoln's Sparrows. I *think* this is a Lincoln's because the coloring seems buffy. (Not sure if this was one bird or two. These are video-frame shots.) Thanks, Kami
  8. Song Sparrow?

    I took this photo last August in Oceanside, NY. I was told it is a Song Sparrow, but the massive beak looks too large. I know that Song Sparrows have a lot of variability. Is this within their range?
  9. Lincoln Sparrow?

    Photos from 01/02/18, La Mesa (San Diego), Ca. I saw a bird (01/01/18) that looked like a juvenile white crowned sparrow but had a streaked breast. I didn't have bins or a camera and as soon as the bird saw me it took of. Not sure what it was, but it got out looking the next day for it. I did not see it, but I happened across this bird. I was thinking about it being a song sparrow, but I'm thinking too much color. I guess I accidentally rolled my shutter speed the wrong direction .... Sorry for the bad photos. I'm thinking Lincoln Sparrow? Not a lifer, but a new yard bird.
  10. sparrow ID

    Hi all, Saw this little one on Duxbury Beach, MA on 12/7 with some Song Sparrows. Smaller than the Song Sparrows and much lighter overall, but I didn't have an immediate guess at the time due to the list of common/non-rare species the ebird checklist gave me. Could this just be a smaller, immature Song Sparrow? It just looked so different compared to the darker, larger and seemingly longer-tailed adults or others nearby. See four pics entitled "sparrow". https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1yWDVm5IoFzzqVgQiWynf1tz8Bc1ApVwl Thank you, Graham
  11. NYC, mid-October 2017. My immediate observation was a Chipping Sparrow. My White Balance was off that day. The video was much redder, so I toned down the color. Now I'm not so sure about my ID. Would appreciate feedback, thanks. Kami
  12. Sparrow ID

    I encountered this sparrow today (11/5/17) on a feeder in central Virginia. I got the impression of Clay-colored, but after more scrutiny I favor Chipping. Can anyone confer or offer a better identification? https://www.dropbox.com/s/7adz61cuxri7rph/DSCN1724.JPG?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/snytortycfj23cg/DSCN1725.JPG?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/d5gc4s712q2n31r/DSCN1726.JPG?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/6ax4zhe5hk9ap2u/DSCN1727.JPG?dl=0 Thanks!

  15. What sparrow

    What type of sparrow is this? This was taken in southern California. My guesses were Song, Lincolns, or Savannah.
  16. Song Sparrow?

    I was told that this bird, shot in Oceanside NY in August, is a Song Sparrow. The beak looks more massive than those on other Song Sparrows which are common here.

  19. Canary? - Masai Mara, September 14, 2017
  20. Hello, I have spotted two birds at the and of August in at Bownman Bay Whidbey Island, Washington State. Some sort of Warbler and some sort of Sparrow. My initial thoughts were Yellow Warbler and White Crown Sparrow, but after looking closer at my shots I started to doubt. Please help me identify these beauties Here are the cropped pics: Thank you
  21. I found pair of these bird trapped in my house in the morning. It looked little smaller than a common sparrow, however the pattern on its breast looks likes that of a thrush, not exactly sure though. What it might be, never seen this kind before. I could took only 1 pic as it was struggling a lot so had to open the window.
  22. Sparrow

    Learning some new sparrows this week. Which one is this? (Vancouver Island)
  23. Odd Sparrow

    Have this odd sparrow can't quite seem to nail an ID on. Doesn't look right for either a Lincoln or Savanna. Images are cropped RAW files with no color adjustments.
