The Baltimore Aquarium had a large section dedicated to birds and all things flying. I spent a lot of my time in there. Below are a few my favorite shots.

If anyone knows the names of these birds, It'd be really cool to know them. And as always, C&C is welcome. I like to hear the good and the bad, only way to learn. :)

1) Yellow Grosbeak

4) Blue-gray Tanager. This bird was my favorite. It was very beautiful and it seemed much more at ease with people fairly close to him than most of the others did.

5) This is my personal favorite of this series. If only the background was as distracting.

I believe that your first bird is a Yellow Grosbeak. No idea on 2 or 3. Numbers 4 and 5 are Blue-gray Tanager. I am familiar with these birds from Central America.

Thanks Mark. I appreciate you sharing your knowledge. I've updated the original post to include those two IDs.

I think you're right. And that would be an ID for all of them.

Thanks to everyone who commented to help me ID these birds.
