  3. From Saturday on SC coast- Long-billed Curlew! He was probing his bill into the mud all the way up to his face. I also got a lifer Reddish Egret and a Short-billed Dowitcher.

  7. I didn’t mention this before my trip, but two weeks ago my team (barely) qualified for the Junior Olympics. This means lots of practice over the summer, and another trip where I can go birding.

  8. It’s not a Great-tailed Grackle. BRBL is the banding code for Brewer’s Blackbird, which this bird is. it’s really tough to get an ID out of a 1 second audio. I don’t have any suggestions on this one.

  14. It doesn't look like a Gadwall shape to me, especially the head. Maybe a domestic duck? Just giving this a bump.

  20. Mangrove Swallow? On a serous note, t's a Confusing bird, maybe just a weird VGSW, but I'm interested to see others opinions.

  22. There is a subspecies of Hairy Woodpecker that lives in Costa Rica which is much smaller (DOWO sized) and is darker than even the pacific HAWO.

  23. This is either a five-lined skink (most likely) or southeastern five-lined skink. Apparently the scales have to be examined to differentiate.

  25. Not in Costs Mesa during summer. There is only 1 costal record of COFL in California that I know of (not on eBird).

  26. Most of the birds that we don't have in the US are permanent residents in Costa Rica. There are very few tropical birds in Costa Rica that migrate (some that I can think off the top of my head are Yellow-green Vireo and Piratic Flycatcher). Winter or Migration would be the best time to maximize species count, as you can see all the migrants as well as the local birds. However, winter is the dry season, so that means there are a lot more tourists then the summer (the wet season). I'll probably start my trip report soon.

  31. Are you sure it was a bird? Maybe just some litter, like a red solo cup blowing in the wind?

  34. Now that I have whole-heartedly embraced birding, my other hobbies have ceased to keep my attention, with the exceptions of hiking & kayaking, which are now better described as birding by foot and boat.

  39. In Chicago we had a YCNH in the spring that stayed a while but it is gone. AMBI are pretty rare. BCNH pretty common. Large breeding population at Lincoln Park Zoo.

  40. I would be very wary of identifying warblers by a single chip note. IDing from a full song can be hard enough, and notes like these are very ambiguous, though perhaps with enough experience many (most?) could possibly be IDed from these types of calls. I agree that Yellow Warbler seems reasonable, but I would certainly not call it from the recording, as I simply do not know what else might make this sound. For flight calls (which this is not), here's a great cheat sheet: https://www.allaboutbirds.org/news/a-rosetta-stone-for-identifying-warblers-migration-calls/
