  1. That is a Lazuli Bunting female, a blue grosbeak would have a noticeably more thicker bill while the Lazuli Bunting females have a darker back and a bit of a blue wash that comes with it.

  2. Yes! Haven’t been on the forum for a long time, sorry, been busy with work and was spending less time birding in winter and then been busy with birding in spring migration. The Red-throated Pipit was a life bird for me and the White Wagtail was the second I’ve ever seen, but I didn’t get them on the same checklist sadly.

  3. Solitary Sandpiper, Lesser Yellowlegs, and Spotted Sandpiper! It is normally very hard to find any kind of shorebird in my county.

  4. 1. Orange-crowned Warbler 2. Least Flycatcher 3. Eastern Phoebe. They can have small eyerings, looks like this one’s a recently fledged bird.

  14. 166!!! Last year on this date I was at 129. Still waiting for a nice day of migration to really push all the migrants in here as I'm still missing a lot of easy ones.

  15. The filter for your region for Bachman's Sparrow is set to 5 birds from Apr. 1 - Sep. 1. Your report of 6 birds means you have exceeded the filter limit. So, while the ID may be correct, it's not a bad idea to indicate in your checklist comments on how you determined six individual/distinct birds. Not a big deal, the filter is set to 5, so your checklist only exceeds it by a single bird, but to help in the review process it's always a good idea to include additional details.

  16. I have been using Merlin this year to help me learn songs. The app indicated that a Philadelphia Vireo was signing close by and I was able to find the singing bird in a nearby tree. The photo looked a lot like the red eyed vireo I saw earlier on the trail so the confusion. I am finding that Merlin is very helpful, but should not be the final say on an identification.

  26. For this year: 290 for the world(and ABA since I haven’t traveled out of the US). 255 for California 232 for Orange County I’m well ahead of last years pace for the world, but that’s because last year my Florida trip wasn’t until the end of the year, this year it was at the start. For California and Orange County, I’m also ahead of my pace from last year by a landslide. Heck, I’m only ten species away from my 2022 year list for my county! Also, I’m only one species away from my 2022 California list!

  28. Extremely similar calls between the two, by the way, so very easy to confuse between the two regarding audio, but do agree with Painted Bunting female here as well.

  35. 211. Swanson's Thrush GA 209. Swainson's Thrush I am 16 species ahead of last years pace, and with a trip to the coast on Friday, and a 3 week summer vacation in New York already planned, I think 300 species is possible!

  42. I think you are correct, but 1 is also a White-rumped. Wait for confirmation though, I'm not great at sandpipers.
