  1. https://www.flickr.com/photos/anned/40048050731/in/dateposted-public/ I thought this bird was a goldfinch. I took the picture on my back porch in McDonough, GA. A colleague of mine on Flicker said it was a warbler.I would be grateful for your help on the id. I seem to have difficulty identifying yellow birds so I would very much appreciate some advice or tips in this area. Thank you.

  3. Warbler

    I am having a hard time ID'ing this bird. At first I thought it was a Redstart, but ruled that out. Heavy black body streaking. I just can't get it. Any help is appreciated. Thanks, Mary Alice BIRDID-1.JPG-1 by M.A., on Flickr BIRDID-1.JPG-3 by M.A., on Flickr BIRDID-1.JPG-2 by M.A., on Flickr
  4. I saw this bird on a wire in the centre of Santa Cruz, Bolivia at around 15:00 on 16th October 2017.
  5. 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
  6. American Redstart?

    Saw this bird at Old Women Creek state park in Huron, OH last weekend. It was high up in the trees. Is it an American Redstart or some type of Warbler or Vireo?
  7. goldfinch or ?

    Not sure on ID for this bird. gold by Terry Dickerson, on Flickr
  8. This cute little creature was found hoping around The Pond in NYC's Central Park today. It stayed on the ground, moving swiftly, very much like a wren. It even has a very wren-like tail but I'm assuming it's a warbler of some kind. My ID apps appear stumped. Perhaps because it's migrating. Does anyone know? Thanks! -Peter Who is she__ by degibox, on Flickr
  9. I took two pictures of two different birds, the first in Monteverde, Costa Rica and the second in Tortugero, Costa Rica. So I'm not sure if they're the same species but they look the same to me. I was thinking maybe they're both Tropical Kingbirds? 1. 2.
  10. Earlier this evening (around 5pm), I spotted this little guy near the entrance to my building. About half the size of a sparrow. Didn't move (despite my walking by it and kneeling down to take a photo) until the camera flash went off, then it looked around, chirped and hoped into the bushes. Spent some time researching possible species, and I believe it's a Kinglet (though maybe not an adult?) however it's markings don't quite match any photos I've found online. Never have seen anything quite like it in this area (outer borough of NYC). Not entirely sure what happened to it afterward, as I was on my way to work and when I returned a number of hours later, I didn't spot it (but I'll keep an eye out come daylight tomorrow).
  11. Can anyone help with this guy, I have a hard time with female warblers. _MG_0384-Edit by Terry Dickerson, on Flickr _MG_0388 by Terry Dickerson, on Flickr _MG_0382 by Terry Dickerson, on Flickr
  12. Yellow Bird ID

    Saw this bird on porch swing this morning. Would you say it's a goldfinch or oriole? It is in Ohio but I have no idea.
  13. Greetings all, Anyone have any idea what bird this is? Apologies for blurred shot, in which the mystery bird (black lower, yellow upper, split tail) is seen perched on a thistle sock. It was taken on 6/11/16 in Hammonton, New Jersey, USA. It looks a bit like a yellow headed blackbird, but their range in the US is out west, no? Thanks in advance for any feedback. -bopes
  14. Does anyone know what type of bird this is, nearly tripped over him on the way out of our hotel! So I scooped him up and moved him to a shaded tree area hopefully giving him his best chance! Seemed very alert and awake but didn't any effort to fly off when I picked him up, he may have just been a tad stunned from maybe flying into the wall! He's (or she) is a dark green colour on top and a vibrant yellow on his chest! Any clues would be great!
  15. American Goldfinch?

    Hi, Just wondering if I have this right. Colours aren't very bright compared to my reference. Thanks DW
  16. Yellowish Bird

    This was taken this morning in the antelope valley, CA. Couldn't get a clear picture of him, he wouldn't sit still for more than a second. IMG_1030-Edit by Terry Dickerson, on Flickr IMG_1028-Edit by Terry Dickerson, on Flickr
  17. Yellow variant purple finch?

    This bird was at my feeder on March 6. I live in the Klamath Mountains of very Northern California. The setting is mixed-conifer/hardwood, isolated. I think it is a yellow variant of a purple finch and would like others to have a look and comment. I may be able to dig up another photo if needed.
  18. Hi! The apple tree has a red-breasted sapsucker regularly drilling new holes, and there is a tiny olivish yellow bird drinking from the holes and hopping around like a nuthatch, seemingly defying gravity. It has as its distinguishing mark a small black and white bar on its wings. A similar mark is around its eyes, and otherwise it just looks like a pygmy nuthatch with a tiny bill... What am I seeing??? It's NOT a goldfinch, it's very tiny. No bigger than my Anna's hummers.
  19. Are these all Yellow-Rumped Warblers?

    Hello again! I spotted around 15 of these birds at Jamaica Bay Wildlife Preserve today. I'm fairly certain that each photo is of a yellow-rumped warbler. I was wondering if the forum could help me determine whether I'm correct, what gender the birds in the photos are, and whether anyone knows which subspecies (Audobon's or Myrtle) Also, if they are in fact YellowRumps, am I now seeing dark masks on the males because of the season? Thanks for all of your help! -Peter Photo 1 by degibox, on Flickr Photo 2 by degibox, on Flickr Photo 2B by degibox, on Flickr Photo 3 by degibox, on Flickr Photo 4 by degibox, on Flickr Photo 5 by degibox, on Flickr Photo 6 by degibox, on Flickr
  20. Warbler

    I'm north of Chicago and this was taken yesterday. Is this an immature Magnolia Warbler? Thank you!
  21. Needed some help identifying what I believe is a flycatcher. I saw the bird in a pecan tree here in Austin, Texas.
  22. Yellow bird

    Is this a female Bullock's Oriole. I took it at some ponds on Edwards Air Force Base, CA. I see them around my house but have never seen them at the ponds. https://www.flickr.com/photos/129829714@N02/20278886250
  23. These photos were taken recently in North-West TN. Lots of stuff coming through on migration and a lot of stuff shows as possible on ebird, but I cannot fins anything in vireos or warblers or finches that I am happy with for an ID. As I look at the pictures, here are some of my thoughts... Breast appears yellow. Appears to have a faint and/or broken eyeing. Bill appears tan or brown and seems too thick for a vireo or warbler. A female Yellowthroat is kind of close but this bird looks to also have yellow on top of the head, so I don't think that is the right ID. The only option I can find that seems close enough is a female Lesser Goldfinch, but it would be way out of it’s normal habitat so I doubt that is correct. Thanks for anything helpful!

  24. lousy pictures

    Hi everybody. I have a few bird I need IDing, I can't quite figure out what they are. Unfortunately the birds I wasn't sure of didn't get very good pictures. 1. Regular song sparrow or a different kind of sparrow? this one looks slightly different to me, but I can't quite pinpoint why. 2. Yellow bird(s?) high up in tree. This one looks different then the others posssibly thanks! Edit: forgot to say location. I'm in central maine
  25. Woodpecker?

    I have recently spotted this bird at the feeder outside. It's certainly a type of woodpecker, I think, because of the body and beak shape, but I do not know what kind it is. There is no red markings at all. I live in the Northeast, in Vermont, where Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers are common, though there is no red present of this bird. What kind is it?
