    Another warbler (?) ID - SW Florida

    I was photographing in a wildlife area near Fort Myers, Fla., a couple of days ago and caught this bird in an area where I was seeing Blue-gray Gnatcatchers, Yellow-rumped Warblers and some Palm Warblers. I got a shot of a Pine Warbler nearby and originally thought this was another Pine Warbler...

    Warbler (?) ID - SW Florida

    I was on a photo hike this morning in Six Mile Cypress Slough in Fort Myers, Fla. I came across a group of small birds — primarily blue-gray gnatcatchers, some yellow-rumped warblers and a few others — when I grabbed one shot of this bird before it flew off. I assumed it was another...

    Warbler (?) ID, Central Ohio, US

    I saw this bird this morning in a field north of Columbus, Ohio. I'm thinking it's a Tennessee Warbler (which I don't usually see here), but fall warbler IDs give me fits. Any help is appreciated. Just want to be sure I have a correct ID before I post them to my sites: http://www.pathemlepp.com...

    I photographed this bird in a field in Central Ohio this morning and I'm struggling with an ID. Want to be sure I have it correct before I post it to my sites: http://www.pathemlepp.com and http://www.pbase.com/hemlepp. When it landed I thought it was a female yellowthroat but it only stayed...

    Peewee ID, Central Ohio, US

    Vireo (?) ID, Central Ohio, US

    I found this bird in a field in a park just north of Columbus, Ohio. It was surrounded by goldfinches so when I saw the movement and pointed the camera that way I assumed it was another goldfinch. When I saw it up close I knew it was something else. I first thought kinglet, but after seeing it...

    Warbler (?) ID, Northern Ohio, US

    I photographed this bird in May in Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge along Lake Erie in northwest Ohio. The bird landed, pulled some fibers from the plant and flew off. I never saw its back or wings and I'm struggling with the ID. Any assistance will be appreciated. I want to be sure I have a...

    Flycatcher (?) ID, Northern Ohio, US

    I photographed this bird last week in Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge in Northern Ohio along Lake Erie, but I'm stumped on an ID. I struggle with flycatcher IDs anyway (if this is a flycatcher). Just want to be sure I have an accurate ID before I post the photo to my sites...

    Warbler (?) ID, Southwest Florida

    I was going through photos I shot during February in a park in Fort Myers, Fla., and I'm having trouble ID-ing this bird that I assume is a warbler of some sort. It has faint markings in the yellow so it looks like it may be transitioning from winter to summer plumage. I want to be sure I have...

    Yellowthroat (?) - Central Ohio, US

    I occasionally get female Common Yellowthroat IDs confused with those of some other warblers, so I want to confirm this is a female Common Yellowthroat before I post the photos to my web sites: http://www.pathemlepp.com and http://www.pbase.com. I photographed it in a park just north of...

    I shot this last week during our spring visit to Magee Marsh on Lake Erie in Northern Ohio to photograph migrating warblers.

    Flycatcher (?) ID, Northern Ohio, US

    I photographed this bird last week at Magee Marsh Wildlife Area along Lake Erie in Northern Ohio, but I'm struggling with the ID. I'm assuming it is a flycatcher of some sort, but I struggle more with identifying the various types of flycatchers more than any other species. I want to be sure I...

    Another warbler (?) ID, Northern Ohio, US

    Warbler ID, northern Ohio, U.S.

    I photographed this bird last week at Magee Marsh Wildlife Area along Lake Erie in Northern Ohio, but I'm struggling with the ID.

    Vireo (?) ID, Northern Ohio, U.S.

    I photographed this bird last week in Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge along Lake Erie in Northern Ohio (the park is next to the much more crowded Magee Marsh). I'm thinking it is a vireo, maybe a warbling vireo, but I don't see that many vireos so I'm not sure. I want to have the ID correct...

    Duck ID, Sanibel Island, Florida, US

    I photographed these ducks at Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel Island, Fla., but I'm stumped by what is likely a pretty obvious (and simple) ID. The markings on the male don't seem to match anything in my field guide. Any help you can provide will be appreciated.

    ID - Magee Marsh, Northern Ohio, US

    I shot this in Magee Marsh in northern Ohio last week. I photographed a number of warblers and other migrating birds there, but I'm having trouble with an ID on this one (although I believe I should know the ID; I think I'm having a brain cramp from warbler overload). I want to be sure I have...
