  3. I've seen them hopping on the ground before, and even within feet of me on a bridge! Of course my camera ran out of battery for that incident, though.

  5. Not sure on #1 I think other 3 are correct
  6. Today
  7. OK, I have ideas.. My best ID's would be: 1. Female bay-breasted warbler 2. Chestnut sided 3. Female black-throated green warbler 4. Northern parula? Here is a different pic of the same bird
  8. I saw these birds today at a nature preserve in Essex County, NJ. Just want to make sure I submit to E-bird correctly. I believe I have a bad pic of a scarlet tanager, an indigo bunting, yellow-rumped warbler, red-eyed vireo, and a great crested flycatcher. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  9. Technically it's a "blackbird" since it's part of the Icteridae family 😝
  10. I saw these birds today at a nature preserve in Essex County, NJ. Unfortunately they were all small and fast.. so I didn't get any real good shots.. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  11. Probably one of my better Cape May Warbler shots a couple of days ago but no ratings. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/450015291

  14. Not quite as long but I'm in a similar boat inching closer to the top 100 for my heavily birded county. The grosbeak, oriole, and two warblers are slowly turning into nemesis birds as they would also be lifers
  15. I feel this way about the LeConte's Thrasher. I definitely understand not wanting a bunch of birders showing up at a private residence like that RUHU, but when it's at a public hotspot (especially a huge one where most of the terrain cannot be described with generic directions like "the tree above the water fountain"), I wish people would just put coordinates down. It's especially infuriating when it keeps getting seen and the comment is simply "continuing, in the usual spot." That's definitely one of my nemesis birds. For some of the other birds in that list, I know exactly where to find them, but because of the size of Clark County I can't justify spending that much money on gas just to see a Wild Turkey or a Cactus Wren, especially when I've photographed both in other counties. And what happens if I make the trip and they are not near the road/trail? Some of the other birds I haven't seen at all, but I know I'll be swimming in them whenever I visit a different part of the US. eBird needs an "X county needs alert, but lifers only" like the targets page can do. πŸ˜€ I think the list is so long because it's a weekend during migration. The other days this week had much shorter lists. During the winter, I sometimes have days where I don't get an e-mail at all.
  16. The last bird to show up in the county that I don't have, it never showed up on my Needs List. It was not released to eBird until much later after it was banded and they wouldn't allow visitors anyway (Rufous Hummingbird). Prior to that was a Long-eared Owl in Jan '21 and the finder was very nondescript even in e-mails on specifically where it was. I think less than 5 birds in past 2 years have really showed up on my Needs List. Motivates me to get out there more and find new stuff.
  17. BRDL 114 πŸ₯šπŸ¦πŸ₯šπŸ₯š πŸ₯šπŸ¦πŸ¦πŸ¦ 🐦🐦🐦🐦 List-assisted because I'd already eliminated the other obvious one that fits the second guess's pattern, and it's not in Sibley's. There have been a lot of code-3 and higher birds in the last two weeks. I obviously have not seen today's bird.
  18. I didn't think of Gray-cheeked (my bad) and it does seem too rusty colored,but I know you folks are more experienced. As observed by IKLIand, not much of an eye-ring and a complete black upper bill with the lower having a yellowish pink base.
