    I've been fortunate this spring on getting a few good shots of Prairie Warblers. This one is my favorite so far... Prairie Warbler by Mark Goodwin, on Flickr

    Rails are secretive birds of the swamps and marshes, which there are plenty in Brooklyn/Queens...I am sure it was heading to one of them. Sadly window strikes are very common during migration as birds see skyline reflections and try to fly right on through. Some birds just get temporarily stunned but most fair far worse.

    These birds have their own house. They don't need to encroach on my property! They assume unlimited privileges with regard to the backyard buffet, garden, hot tub, and pool.

    Welcome. I'm with HamRHead, Virginia Rail. Rails are birds that hang out in marshy wetlands and spend most of their time in tall reeds. If there are any of those near the river or its tributaries, that's likely where it came from. https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Virginia_Rail/overview

    Despite being poured on multiple times yesterday (and also managing to get sunburned. . .), I had a really good day yesterday. The two I was most excited about, as they were both nemesis birds for me: Roseate Spoonbill by midgetinvasion, on Flickr

    Southern California this past weekend. Thanks. Forster's? Least? Reddish Egret? Based on eBird, I think most of these are Elegant...the one in the upper right seems to have a larger bill, but I'm not sure if that's just normal variance in Elegants.

    I think those 3 top center birds are Caspians.

    Agree with female Common Yellowthroat.

    For starters. This bird is not a Northern Mockingbird. Looks to be a species of flycatcher. Maybe Eastern Phoebe? Not that great with them. But the most interesting part is how you saw it drinking. Super cool! Never seen that before. Maybe it wasn't drinking? Maybe it was trying to wash something irritating off it's head.

    Looks like a Common Yellowthroat. Tennessee Warblers have dark eyelines, light superciliums, shorter tails, straighter beaks, and a more horizontal posture.

    To me it looks off for a Willet. Maybe a Greater Yellowlegs.

    Here are pics showing tail length. I hope they help. I also cropped in more and lightened photos some.

    Why not immature Broad-wing? It looks a lot like this one.

    1-3 are correct. I think all of those are Elegants.

    I don't vary the proportions, but I don't have the same seasons here, and I have hummers all year. I also don't measure; I eyeball about 1:4 sugar:water, stir, and serve! I've heard that flower nectar varies a lot in sugar content, so doesn't seem necessary to be that precise with the homemade stuff. But I agree, not 1:3!

    First three Anna's. Next four Allen's. Slight possibility of Rufous on the last four, but it's late for that here.
