  2. Black-billed Cuckoo. It's hard enough to find one of these birds but I saw three of them in the same area this morning.

  7. No. I'm not sure where you're seeing Dunlin. There are 4 Sanderlings and 1 Semipalmated Sandpiper.

  8. These are ring-necked ducks. They're pretty... similar colors to scaups but the patterns are different. That white that comes up the front/side and the ring on the bill helps ID it.

  19. No, too small and not quite the right shape and the color is wrong. Pretty sure it's a warbler...maybe a Yellow-rumped, but the lighting and twigs and leaves in the way are making it difficult to tell if what I'm seeing is a part of the bird or not.

  21. It certainly looks like it with those white outer primary feathers and the black wingtip.

  22. Whew, thanks. I was following this because the closest I could get, which wasn't really that close, was Great Kiskadee! The only Philly of my experience was not nearly this yellow. Nor did the face have this much contrast. @MerMaeve I'll "like" your reply tomorrow after my likes replenish.

  27. By the way, if you do see a Willow Flycatcher at this time of year, it's probably a migrant of the subspecies that nests farther north, not a Southwestern Willow Flycatcher. Local birders might be able to tell you what time of year you can be certain that a Willow Flycatcher is Southwestern. (Here in New Mexico, I've heard that it's only July, but I don't know whether that's true.) if you see one nesting or recently fledged in southern Nevada, it would also have to be Southwestern.

  28. Here is my AAR on our families Spring Break trip to Corpus Cristi (Padre Island). Stayed at the El Constante Condominiums from 5/14 to 5/19. Wife and kids were happy. Plenty of beautiful weather and all the beach they could want. 14 life birds for me. Most seen just driving around. On Mustang Island there are plenty of places to park on the west side of the island and walk around. We found a fenced off plover breeding area with many Wilson's and Piping plovers running around. You can also get photos like this: DSC06408r Long-billed Curlew and Whimbrel by Mark Ross, on Flickr This was taken out the window of my car car. The birds were perhaps 10 feet away. So no great accomplishment getting most of these birds. The only one I am proud of is this one my wife spotted by the side of the road driving to the National Seashore visitor's center. She made me stop and back up. I am glad she did. DSC05447r Upland Sandpiper by Mark Ross, on Flickr Here is my complete list of new birds: White-winged Dove, American Acovet, NT Cormorant, White-tailed Hawk, R Spoonbill, Scissortail flycatcher, LB Curlew, Whimbrel, W Plover, Reddish Egret, Sandwich Tern, Caracara, Upland Sandpiper, Great-tailed Grackle.
