    Unknown hawk, Michigan

    Thanks! I was looking at the tail pattern in Cooper's and sharped-shined that all looked similar to my novice eye's. I'll have to take a closer look to differentiate. Appreciate you taking the time to share your observation, really helps me focus in on pertaining details.

    warbler, Michigan. Id help please

    Thanks. Yeah, that third picture was an attempt to show a dark throat. Getting a clear picture of hyperactive birds is always a challenge for me. I appreciate your time and insight. Brian

    warbler, Michigan. Id help please

    That's about the best I can due on this bird unfortunately. I didn't even realize Kirkland existed. I'll edit the original post to add an even more blurry picture with an angle of the throat. Thanks, Brian

    I was pretty sure this is Great Crested Flycatcher but can't seem to get a confirmation on my inaturalist. Any issues with calling this GCF? Thanks, Brian

    Flycatcher ID help please, Michigan

    sorry for the blurry images. I'm wondering if they are good enough to make an ID on my bird. Eastern wood-pewee most common locally but other similar looking flycatchers such as Least, Alder and willow present. Thanks, Brian

    warbler ID help please, Michigan

    Do you mean a female Cape May Warbler? I looked at CMW but thought the streaking was a little heavy but I'm not familiar with these birds. I've added a few more pictures if that helps narrow. Appreciate you taking the time to help!

    Ovenbird?, Michigan

    sorry about the blurry pic. Thinking this is Ovenbird but I'm not that familiar with the area and wanted to make sure their weren't any thrush that could be a source of confusion.

    whimbrel? Hainan, China May

    Indeed. I'm hoping someone with an understanding of species of confusion in Asia can narrow it conclusively. Cheers!
