    Juvenile Cliff Swallow? (eastern U.S)

    Wow, thank you so much, Lou, Birdmeister, and Cardinal 12! You all are so astute. I never would have guessed an adult. But come to think of it, it was such an unseasonably cold morning that the bird had its feathers puffed out, which made me think "juvenile". I will look for more of these...

    Juvenile Cliff Swallow? (eastern U.S)

    Does this look like a juvenile Cliff Swallow? It was on the utility wire above my driveway at 6:30 this morning, June 4th. I live in WV, about 30 minutes south of Cumberland, MD, and it was unseasonably cold this morning when I took this photo -- about 40 F (8 C). I haven't seen any Cliff...

    Eastern West Virginia, USA - Fox Sparrow?

    Hello everyone, I live in what might more accurately be called northeastern West Virginia, not exactly in the eastern panhandle, but slightly west of that. My location is about 16 miles or so south of Cumberland, Maryland. For weeks I've been seeing this sparrow foraging on the ground...

    Cooper's or Sharp-Shinned? WV, USA

    Thank you, Randy, fugl, Jeff, and ceasar, so very much! You all are terrific, and such fast responses! This is a lifer for me, so I will add it to my list. I had read as much as I could about field marks, size, etc., but didn't know about the graduated tail feathers. Thank you again!

    Cooper's or Sharp-Shinned? WV, USA

    Hi everyone! Yes, I'm still alive, and I hope you all are well! I had Internet connection problems for several months, which were very time-consuming, so I have not had time to post until now. I live in the US, in eastern West Virginia, just south of Cumberland, Maryland, which is in western...

    Definitely a conflict going on! Terrific job of capturing the beautiful colors of these Jays and showing how cantankerous they can be toward one another, tfs!

    Comment by 'Guest' in media 'Gray Catbird'

    Looks a lot like a Gray Catbird, and I love the fearless expression on this one! We have them here in Eastern West Virginia during the warm weather season. They were quite prolific this summer and fledged numerous young, but they seem to have begun their migration in August, quite early for...

    Our resident male Northern Mockingbird. He watches me much more than I watch him! Here he is on the utility wire above my driveway.

    Oh, I heartily agree, one can never take too many photos of these little cuties! Quite a dramatic capture, and looking right at you. Love it!

    Comment by 'Guest' in media 'Brown Booby, Juvenile'

    Nice capture and very educational for me because I've never seen one! I heard through our local bird club that an adult and juvenile were recently spotted at Baltimore's Inner Harbor. Tfs, Bob!

    Comment by 'Guest' in media 'American Goldfinch, Nonbreeding Female'

    Absolutely gorgeous, and what a perfect background! From a distance these non-breeding females can look so dull and drab. You have done both her and us a great service by so excellently revealing the details of her plumage. Exquisite, Bob, tfs!

    Quite dramatic, and she seems so poised and self confident! Thanks so much for your information about bluebird families returning to check their boxes. And thanks for sharing this and all of your other fabulous shots!

    Thanks so much, Donny! That's great information because I didn't know that bluebird families do that. Best to you.

    Wow, Donny, this is beyond superb! One would have never guessed you had such unfavorable conditions for this shot. Beautiful and perfectly illustrative of this bird's field marks. Colors and feather texture are exquisite, tfs!
