    Okay, it seems no one wants to take a shot at this so l will. The angle from below and behind is unfortunately common in my experience and makes things difficult. Also, I believe that the bird's...

    I believe that you have a female Brown-headed Cowbird. Males are obvious but not so with the ladies.

    Thanks for the information. I went over and got there at 11:00 and almost immediately spotted 4 swallows feeding over the creek. I had to watch for a while to get good enough views to be sure these...

    Unfortunately, I drove by to check today about 2:00 pm. A large truck was coming out and stopped to close the gates behind himself. Based on that, I believe that the area is still closed.
    Thanks,...

    There has obviously been misinformation about the beds. Since all the teams in the Scavenger Hunt back in July went into the beds and there have been numerous eBird reports since then, I assumed it...

    No expert here but the throat appears black. I would suggest a Black-throated Green. I have seen several reported recently even though it is a bit early. Blackburnian is very rarely seen here in the...

    I would say it is a first year male Baltimore Oriole. They can be very confusing. The Orchard immature male is the same yellowish-green color as the female.
    That's my guess.
    Thanks, Chuck

    I was there today from 8:30 until 9:00 and saw the birds repeatedly in several different trees near the parking lot. There were two males in the same dead tree at one point. Thanks for everyone...

    I talked to Jim and yes the walk is on as scheduled this Wednesday. As we did last month, Jim will lead us on a walk on a route of his choosing in the immediate area of the beds. The route will...

    I also thought this was unusual when you posted it. However, yesterday morning at Sabine Woods I saw a male Summer Tanager sitting out on a dead tree limb that was very similar. The bird's belly and...

    Good find. We recently had a post of one seen at Possom Kingdom lake but eBird data shows nothing east of US Hwy281.
    Thanks, Chuck

    It sure looks like a Bewick's to me. A marsh wren has a darker back and you should see the white streaks down the back in your first photo if it was a marsh wren.
    Thanks, Chuck

    This has to be one of the most unusual "yardbirds" that I have ever seen. Soras that I have seen have all been in marsh areas and rarely in the open, but you have them in a hardwood forest area!...
