A blurry shot of a dark eyed junco. I saw a lot of these while we were in Flagstaff.

Some type of yellow warblers or finches. After pouring over my Stokes Birding Guide, all of the little yellow colored warblers look the same. Any ID’s on these would be great appreciated

My first plumbeous vireo. Looked a little like a cerulean warbler but that white circle around his eye made it easier to identify.

I thought this was another white breasted nuthatch but the all white head is throwing me off. Maybe a juvenile?

This looks like a female goldfinch but it could be anything.

So many little birds. And I was snapping as fast as they were zipping around. At first I thought I was getting all the same bird but I realize now there were several different ones out there. ¬†So many of these little birds look different in the fall than during breeding season. Or they could be females or juveniles. ¬†Anyway, I was having too much fun running around the woods at the Flagstaff Arboretum taking pictures to stop and look them up while I was there. I’m more of a “shoot now and look it up later” kind of person. That doesn’t always work out when you are looking pages of birds and all you have is a small blurry shot.
