  1. Today in Dearborn, MI. Can't seem to find anything other than Canada Warbler for this, but please confirm since it is a life bird.

    Orioles and Heron

    These orioles were in the same tree recently in Southeast Michigan. 1st two pics I think are a young male Orchard Oriole (same bird). 3rd pic I think is a female Baltimore Oriole. Last pic was in central Florida on 4/26 and I think is a Tricolored Heron. Please confirm or correct these IDs. 1. 2. 3. 4.
  3. This bird was seen/heard May 7 @ 12:45pm at Prairie Wolf Park in Gaines Township, Michigan. Bird was sparrow sized, grey/brown with some speckling on the underside of the tail. I wasn't able to get a picture of it, but I did get a video which captures the song. Would appreciate any ideas on what this might be. https://youtu.be/K7W5GLpJzd0 Thanks!

    Song Sparrow, right?

    Early March in Southeast Michigan. Song Sparrow?
  5. This was taken on April 18 in southwest lower Michigan, conditions here at the moment are 30-40' and recent snowfall. Pretty sure this is a warbler, maybe immature Bay-breasted warbler (search says it's only migratory in Mich.), Blackpoll warber (searches inconclusive - some photos suggest other eliminate), female or immature male Pine warbler (seems like the likelyest candidate)? Sure could use some expert feedback here - TIA. Gary
  6. Yesterday, 3/26, Southeast Michigan. Mainly going off size relative to Ring-billed and dark gray, rather than almost black, back. Or is this a Great?
  7. 1. 3/14/18, Pointe Mouilee. Herring?? on right and ??? on left 2. 3/20/18, Belle Isle, Detroit. Great Black-backed? and Ring-billed? Same large gull as directly above, Great Black-backed? 3. 3/20/18. Belle Isle, Detroit. Herring? in back and another Herring??? in front?

    Purple Martin?

    Not my photo (got the okay to share). From the middle of the thumb of Michigan in May.
  9. I know some of you like a challenge. Yesterday, 2/20/18, Southeast Michigan. This bird was very far away, gliding, with a couple wing flaps every 10 seconds or so. My superzoom point-and-shoot was past maximum optical zoom and the photo is HEAVILY cropped at that. Was only able to get one pic.
  10. Today in Detroit, MI, with Herring Gulls in photos 2 and 3.

    Potential Duck Lifer

    1/18/18 in Southeast Michigan Are any, or all, of these circled ducks American Black Ducks?

    Trying to learn gulls

    Yesterday, 1/18, at Lake Erie Metropark, Southeast Michigan. Please help. 1. 1st winter Herring Gull? 2. Best guess is 1st winter Great Black-backed Gull (the big one)
  13. Gulls seem to be a popular topic around here lately. I know I have at least 1 lifer here. All these were from yesterday, 1/12, at an inland lake in Southeast Michigan. Thanks in advance for any help. I have more pictures of almost all of them if you want to see other views. Editing out all the Herring Gull photos 1-3, 5-9 that @psweet ID'd. 4. ? and ?

    Black-backed Gull?

    Detroit, MI, 12/21/17 Is this a Black-backed Gull? And if so, is it possible to tell which one? Second pic with what appears to be a Ring-billed Gull.
  15. Southeast Michigan, 11/10/17 Was going through some old photos... This duck (circled) was hanging out with a bunch of Green-winged Teal, some Mallards and a few Northern Shovelers (lifer, not shown). They were on the far side of the marsh, which is why the photo (cropped) is so bad. Plain head and dark bill. Looks about the same size as the female Mallard in front. Thoughts?
  16. 11/6/17 Southeast Michigan

    Duck and Gulls

    Yesterday in Detroit: 1. Greater Scaup (lifer)? 2. Flying gull: Bonaparte's (lifer)? 3. Large gull behind Ring-billed: Herring?
  18. All within the past couple days in Southeast Michigan: 1. This goose was about the size of the Canada Geese. I assume it is a hybrid between a Canada Goose and something. What is it? 2. Fairly confident in these. Let me know if I'm wrong or missed anything. Canvasbacks, Redheads, Buffleheads on the right, and Hooded Mergansers in the back: 3. These were the best shots I could get.
