sm bird with white ring NEW
by: Anonymous

small brown bird with white collar took over a nest that another small bird had vacated when her babies left the nest, This one laid eggs and has babies too. Is it unusual for a bird to move in to an empty nest that another bird just left and hatch eggs within weeks? The nest is on a ledge over a door. We live in N Miss.

Bird with white ruff and sporadic white feathers
by: Kat

We have pictures of what seems like a mutant Robin in SE Wisconsin that kinda fits that description.

He has a fairly wide white ruff around his neck, red breast and one or two white flight feathers on each side with the rest dark. His tail feathers are white on one side and dark on the other. Has the classic robin eye & beak. Spotted May of 2016

Larger than a sparrow. Seen near parking lot. Brown slender bird with white ring around neck, some black. I think it's a Killdeer.
