David Whitten posted a topic in Help Me Identify a BirdHello, just found this discussion forum! I am trying to figure out the identification of a small bird I have seen in my backyard. Here is what I can pass along (sorry I do not have a photo). Seen in southern Indiana, Louisville metro area , town of Clarksville, neighborhood less than 2 miles from Ohio River. Winter ... seen at least three different days in December, including yesterday, December 30, 2017! Light drab grayish olive green above, very pale beige with faint tint of of olive green or light buff yellowish on breast. Looks like some kind of warbler, about 4.5 inches long? Small, about the same size as a Goldfinch, and I thought at first it was a female/juvenile in winter, but there are no black/white wingbars, so now I am sure it is not a goldfinch. At bird feeder, and seemed to appear at about the same time as tufted titmouse and chickadee, was probably associating with them. Perhaps some type of warbler, but I thought all of them would be gone for the winter in this area! Any ideas on possible ID? Or educated guesses. THANK YOU!
I took these pictures in my backyard in Lincoln, Nebraska, USA. My apologies for the low quality shots. I have some Better quality shots if necessary using a different camera which I can upload if necessary. Time of day is 1:00 pm, December 9, 2017.
In Central Indiana I've tried every call listed in my Chirp! app but this one is not there. Date of hearing: May 24 This is a loud, repetitive 3-note call. This unknown bird high up in the (sparse) forest next to the lake is loudly whistling a short phrase, "pa-deee-deep, pa-deee-deep" then pausing and repeating. They're almost the same tone, just short-long-short. Of course he stops the second I move to the door/window. Please help keep me from going nuts!
Looking to id this bird. I get them every year under my awning. It only during early winter (november) and at night. I live in metro st. Louis. I currently have 2 under each corner and they dont spook. I can work around them and in and out of the door and they dont move. https://drive.google.com/a/umsl.edu/file/d/0B-Rj5xCLqrrvV1lnMEtxNVZ2ZTA/view?usp=drivesdk https://drive.google.com/a/umsl.edu/file/d/0B-Rj5xCLqrrvMVlqX3lqUy1ja0E/view?usp=drivesdk
