    Good question. Here are some tips: If you see a Sanderling at close range, you can see that it lacks the hind toe of a Semi. In nonbreeding plumage, Sanderlings have clean white breasts. In breeding plumage, Sanderlings have spotted breasts. Semis usually have streaked breasts. Semis have a slimmer midsection than the chunky Sanderlings. Sanderlings are sometimes a different primary color, depending on the time of year. In full breeding plumage, they’re redder than Semis, and in full nonbreeding plumage, they’re grayer than Semis.

    I had about decided that I was not ever going find a Cuckoo, when I had a camera. I hear them consonantly, but I never can find them. Photographic lifer Yellow-billed Cuckoo!

    If by 'acting strange' you mean hopping along the ground or onto low shrub branches while cheeping pitifully, that's standard behavior for a newly fledged wren (and a lot of other species too). The bird will pass through this stage in a few days as it becomes more proficient at flying and finding its own food. Mom and Dad are usually somewhere in the area, along with any nestmates.

    This is a Lucy's Warbler. A common, small and enigmatic bird of Arizona. Notice the warbler-like appearance and gray plumage overall with a reddish crest.

    I saw this little guy in St Charles, IL today in my window well. I also witnessed, but didn't get it on video unfortunately, a regular Robin feed it some live worms. Is this an Albino Robin maybe? At first I thought it was a white dove, but I'm not 100% sure.

    @CoastieBirder, good job! When I first looked at that photo, it almost seemed like the grackle was shooting out of the crow

    While I was taking photos of hummingbirds the head mosquitoes were planing a raid on me. "When he tries to take a photo of a hummingbird the 47th fly distraction squad will move in. As soon as they get to work the mosquitoes of the 94th will strike his left and right legs, meanwhile the 23rd will attack both arms and his neck. Any questions?" I have watched to many classic wold war two movies.

    I agree, and you can pretty obviously see that distinctive 'frowning' look that California Gulls have in the gape area

    Both are Least Sandpipers. The yellow legs are good ID features.

    This bird was in Madera Canyon on May 30, 2020. At first I thought it was a Gilded, then waffled on Red-shafted. I'd never paid enough attention to that difference I guess. Now I'm leaning Red-shafted but not sure. I give that guy Wilson a lot of credit, when he invented a new warbler he put a black cap on it to make ID easy! Thanks, bo

    Yep, Tufted Titmouse. Location and date are always helpful.
