Bad bird photo of the week

Here's a hint: pic taken today in Northern Michigan at a state park's feeder. Happy guessing!

Hermit Thrush?

Rabbits' Guy said...

Some kind of thrush .. not a varied thrush.

KatDoc said...

Wood Thrush?

Patrick Belardo said...

Purple Finch?

dguzman said...

At a feeder? I was gonna go with my favorite singer the Wood Thrush, but -- at a feeder?

Uh...

Wood Thrush. I got nothin' else.

John said...

I'll go with female Purple Finch.

LauraHinNJ said...

Sorry everyone, but you're all GROSSLY incorrect.

;-)

Blue footed booby?

Rabbits' Guy said...

Well, it is not a Kirtland's Warbler. Maybe it is GM's new model???

Rabbits' Guy said...

Oh .. when I make that picture big I can see it is just a dumb old song sparrow. Or a blue-footed booby.

egretsnest said...

Okay, what about a Fox Sparrow then? Best I got.

KatDoc said...

female Rose-breasted Grosbeak

Or a Magnificent Frigatebird

Since you said gross, I'll guess pine grosbeak.

MevetS said...

First bad then gross. What did the bird do?

Beth said...

Albatross. Yeah, that's it. Albatross.

Larry said...

Female RB Grosbeak-If that's the answer then you gave us too good of a clue-I was thinking that or female Purple Finch.

Rabbits' Guy said...

Well .. seems like the feet are not blue and the beak is not fat .. I guess a rose breasted booby

MAybe it's Laura headed for some of that famous Michigan Maple Syrup!

LauraHinNJ said...

You all are just too much.

It was a female Rose Breasted Grosbeak... I never imagined it would be that difficult (or generate so many silly comments!)

KatDoc said...

For my first guess, I just looked at the picture without magnifying it. I also didn't read very well, since I missed the fact that it was at a feeder. For my second guess, I enlarged the photo and then it was easier. I still didn't read too well, as I missed the "GROSSLY" obvious clue.

Hope you are having fun. See the Kirtland's yet?
