  3. Juvenile Dickcissel? Yellow lores, sparrow-like bill, slight yellow wash and streaks on flanks, whitish bib, whitish broken eyering... Compare with this photo... http://www.flickr.com/photos/vincecapp/7691098630/

  5. wow! I was second guessing myself after I posted because I've only seen this bird perched on fences or low shrubs, not in a tree and overhead like this photo. Rondeau is very forested with perhaps a few open grassy habitats. A good challenge!
    Was there a prize? ;-)
