  3. It’s been a while since I’ve been out there, but why not Dusky/Hammond’s? Leaning Dusky.

  7. As I don’t think there are Hutton’s Vireos in Montana, this is a Ruby-crowned Kinglet

  8. I think all of that was the mocker. We can’t even tell if the chips are from the mocker or not.

  10. I'd agree, Dusky is seems like a better fit than Least. Not a Hammond's, those usually have dark lower mandibles, smaller bills, and longer primary projections.

  12. Now there’s an annoyance - getting people on a photography site to understand that standards are different for bird ID photos. It doesn’t have to be well lit or even in focus to be useful. I just adore being asked, “Well, why didn’t you get closer?”

  15. Last spring or so (maybe a couple of years ago, IDK) @Birding Boy posted a picture of an extremely cooperative (and FLOOFY) Least Sandpiper from an angle that made him look very round and fat and adorable. See here. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/342171981 He affectionately named the floof "Mister Waterballon" because of his perfectly round ball-ness, especially in that photo. We all thought the name was funny, which was also part of the intent. And then... two years later, Sean goes to Quivira. He finds some Least Sandpipers. And then he takes THIS photo.... And the rest is history.

  21. I'm making the call for cape May based on the stretch mark like black markings.

  22. Not sure about the other calls, but the song definitely sounds like Baltimore Oriole.

  23. You're welcome! Immature birds are almost always the size of adults by the time they leave the nest. Your bird is molting from its juvenile plumage into the regular nonbreeding plumage of starlings, giving it a funny look.

  27. With the streaked back, it’s either a Blackpoll or a Bay-breasted. Lack of yellow feet = Bay-breasted

  28. A partial quote from Charlie Spencer's post above...*whispers*...you'll notice that I didn't tag him, so don't tell him I'm talking about him behind his back. "Like many professionals, I'm prohibited from participating in activities reserved for amateurs. " At the risk of coming across as though I am trying to flog a deceased equine, @Aveschapines, what are the chances of getting a new 'Gag Me' reaction added for occasions like this?

  33. I got two lifers today: continuing Roseate Spoonbills and I finally caught up to a Franklin’s Gull. Not great looks at either unfortunately, but a good day nonetheless! The Anhingas at this spot continue to evade me. One more time and they are officially a nemesis.
