    1ST image...... may be a very young dove or mockingbird, but ONLY you could know!

    2ND image looks like wood duck to me but most ducks look like that in downy feathers ;)

    3RD appears to be MOORHEN , but may be a COOT. The chest would tell the EXACT ID
    Oh my friend you are good even when you arn't.

    JUVENILE house sparrow.... your RED FACED MUSCOVYDUCK CHICKS are not a recognised species... they are feral domestic ducks I did consider them , since both chicks looked different ;) A wood duck looks just like that at a VERY young age judging by the 2 I seen a few years ago BALING out of a nest cavity

    I don't remember if you've seen this image before.. I have a feeling you will roll your eyes at it and say, Aw c'mon, you can try harder than that! lol But I'll give it a shot anyway.

    South FL, can't remember the season as they're all hot down here.

    Re: Post Your Bird Images Here!!!!!!!

    I TRY

    I must admit though... some fall female warblers are very tough as are the "hummingbirds" of south/ central america and a vast majority of non US passerines ;)

    KEEP THEM COMING! I have been editing images for Dukes estate for 2 days.... I only take a break to sleep, work and ID birds between HVAC guys giving me estimates on a NEW central air system since mine took a SH_T late last week(88 in my house with 95% humidity I bet)

    Malachite Sunbird in non breeding plumage ?????as in the plumage the males get right after the young are fledged as to not draw attention to the young

    This is an educated guess , as I can't see the TAIL

    Well I knew that heron wasn't about to stump ya, lol. So how about this one? The coolest-looking bird on earth, IMO. I believe they're from the Amazon forest.

    BOATBILL or BOAT-BILLED HERON native to BRAZIL and the surrounding areas....

    Yes that bill is quite a site huh, but a stone curlew is pretty high on the cool looking bird list also.

    Re: Post Your Bird Images Here!!!!!!!

    My apologies as I mistakenly said it was probably from the Amazon, and that might have misled you. It's actually a shoebill stork, similar in looks to the boatbill, but the shoebill is found in Africa - Uganda and Zambia, I think.

    Re: Post Your Bird Images Here!!!!!!!

    RIGHT YOU ARE! PURPLE/ GREY in color is the shoebill, while the boatbill is bicolored.

    Between youramazon tip, my house being 92 degrees and humid as ???? and having gotten 7 hours of sleep since FRIDAY.......... oopsy

    But have no fear, the central air is being replaced tomorrow and IA plan to see how cold it can get

    POST any image(good or bad) as long as there is some detail to the bird. TELL ME ... WHERE and WHEN also

    HERE is a goose hybrid from may 5th 2003

    It is a greater white fronted/ canada goose hybrid
    OK buddy, here ya go. First two are going to be tough due to the poor quality of the shots. These were taken a couple of years ago, and I didn't compensate for the backlighting. Taken in NC.

    Third one it way too easy. You may consider it an insult, it's so easy.

    Last one is a real tough one.

    DARK HOODED PARAKEET... ID'd from "dark" face and RED tarsal feathers.

    I found mine on Cape Coral FL (you found yours in S. FL I bet too)with yellow chevroned, monk, green and white winged parakeets.

    They love nesting in palms

    OOOOOPS, I missed this oine somehow

    Female house finch

    BTW .... Just a tip

    I used to shoot my feeder with a 80-200F2.8 on a film body using a cable release through a window.

    PLENTY of people get publishable images while reading the morning paper just how I discribed ;)

    How are you liking that 50-500 BTW? I have seen plenty of them hanging on PRO GEAR(F5, 1V-HS, 1D, D1X....) at zoos especially. That lens is a great all around lens for such a day trip!!
