    Hawk ID in Southern Illinois

    I took this photo back in February in the southern tip of Illinois. I was wondering if it was the Krider's variant of the Red-tailed Hawk.

    Hummingbird, South Texas

    Is there anything in these photos that can determine whether this is a Rufous or Allen's Hummingbird? I think these are two separate birds in the same place.

    Hawk, South Texas

    I've only been to Texas once and from looking at guides I would think White-tailed Hawk but on my list I only had Harris's Hawk written down for this location. There does seem to be some red on the wing, but the tail and chest I thought were wrong for Harris's. Maybe it's a juvenile?

    Ducks, North Carolina

    When I saw these I wrote them off as Mallards, but now that I look at this very blurry and distant photo, I wonder if they are actually Northern Shovelers. The bills look like Mallard but some of the body coloration looks more like shoveler. Any opinions?

    Gulls, central North Carolina

    I find gulls so difficult. Why can't they just keep one plumage? My guesses are Herring Gull and Bonaparte.

    Fox Sparrow? North Carolina

    I saw this in the Uwharrie Mountains yesterday. It was raining so I wasn't using my good camera. At the time I thought it was thrush sized and I only got a glimpse. It's clearly not a Hermit Thrush though, my only other thought is Fox Sparrow? It doesn't seem to fit Song, and I think it was...

    distant flock, North Carolina

    Can anyone tell what these are? They kind of look like Double-crested Cormorants to me, but I was also wondering if we are finally getting some ducks to migrate in.

    northern North Carolina thrush ID

    I took these 3 days ago. Is one of them a Swainson's or are both Hermit? Swainson's is marked rare in ebird at this time of year, although it would just be a little bit late I think. I am looking at the spots which end pretty high up on one of them, but then I don't know their faces well...
