  12. What species of seagulls is this? (Picture taken near Quebec/New-Brunswick, in Canada) Male/female? Feel free to say any other specification you'd like to say
  13. Location: Long Island New York, June 1st. Might be a real visitor, as none of us have heard this call in our 50-something years here. The mp3 attached is my whistle, carefully matching the exact tone and cadence of what we heard over 20 minutes. it moved around us from tree-to-tree there were dozens of other very loud birds talking, so a real recording wouldn't tell you which one we are curious about. This same call was heard 50 times over 20 minutes. The bird was never in site. Never heard since. Thank you in advance. Unknown bird.mp3
  14. Help with Emails

    WhatBird sends me on average 200 emails a day and it gets tedious deleting them every day. Is there any way I can delete my account permanently or disable this onslaught of emails?
  15. Long beak, brown/tanish, white spots.
  16. Please help identify this bird that my mom has been seeing in the heart of Houston for a few weeks. It looks like a tropical straggler that has made its way here or some sort of captive bird that was released. It makes a consistent Chee chee chee call and this is the only thing she has heard it do. Acts like a fly catcher, but may be eating seeds too. What could it be???? Thanks

  18. Warbler ID

    Observed this warbler briefly in a mixed flock on the Blue Ridge Parkway in central Virginia (approximately mile post 30) on August 28th, 2016. My first impression was Pine, but again looks were brief and I wasn't comfortable calling it with certainty. I was only able to obtain these two photos showing the face and side profile separately through the foliage (low canopy level): https://www.dropbox.com/s/fitedywfsxxrm4l/DSCN0868.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/v6iid17qp23epwx/DSCN0869.jpg?dl=0 I would appreciate anyone's opinion on the ID of this warbler. Thanks!
  19. Video Link: https://youtu.be/kUQ0p94pmUA Video is of a black bird, apparently a crow or raven, or grackle, making an unusual woodflute-like tone. Bird appears of size and coloring of a crow or raven, but I can find no reference to this sound it is making. It is a very un-crow like sound, and closest to some sounds I have heard for grackles, but I do not find this exact sound anywhere. I have heard and seen this bird(s) over the last two or three years in Colorado during summer and fall, and I have not heard or seen the same bird making typical 'caw caw' crow/raven sounds or other grackle sounds... or any other sound at all. I have also not seen this bird in the company of a murder of crows, or with any other birds at all. It is always single. Do you know what it is? If you have any insight for this admittedly unknowledgeable bird watcher, please reply to this post. Date of video: Aug 13, 2016 Location: Central Colorado near front range Rocky Mountains. I like the call's sound, it'll make a nice cell phone notification sound, so I just want to know exactly what's making it. Thanks for the help! Stu
  20. Not Sure

    Is this an eagle or an Osprey?
  21. I saw a large, dard colored owl while driving down the road. The best match I could find was a Great Gray Owl, however they don't live anywhere near where I live(central Florida). It was out in the middle of the day, too. Can someone tell me what it was?
  22. Found this bird near a lake, he was standing on the street. Can you tell me what it is? He has a red beek and blue on top of the eyes and has huge 4 toe feet.
  23. baby mockingbirds?

    Are these baby mockingbirds? Western NY
  24. I have attached 2 images. MA bird mystery! My family and I have been watching the mother and father move into the birdhouse in our front yard and make a nest. We would LOVE to know WHAT SPECIES of bird is this? I have done lots of searching. It looks most like a grey warbler-finch I think, however we are located in South-Central Massachusetts... and those don't live around here I'm pretty sure... FACTS: MA Spring, Summer 2016. In birdhouse with 1.5" wide & tall hole. Body: Small: About 2.5" long, 3.5" long with tail feathers. Male & female look the same; neither have non-brown coloration. Thin beak. Does NOT have a thick/wide beak. Mostly/all buff, sandy brown. Hangs out around robbins, chickadees, and catbirds. In suburban neighborhood, surrounded by woods, temperate deciduous forest biome/zone, across the street from a lake/dam. I have heard its call, still trying to get a recording. I am pretty sure it is not a veery, not a house wren(never seen it with its tail up), not a song sparrow, not a tree sparrow, not a mockingbird. Please reply with any information. Please help me identify this cute, sweet, little bird! Thank you!
