  1. I saw this bird today in Bergen County, northern New Jersey. Is it a Cooper's Hawk?
  2. I saw this bird at the Raritan Bay in Middlesex, NJ last week. Unfortunately, I wasn't focused on this bird, and I just noticed it in the background of one of my pics.. It seems to lack the black wing tips I would normally see on a herring or ring-billed gull, so I was wondering if it was something more interesting. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
  3. I saw these birds last week at the Raritan Bay in Middlesex NJ. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I think I have: 1. Ring-Billed gull 2. Lesser Scaup 3. Not sure...also ring-billed? 4. Red-throated loon 5. Great black-backed gull
  4. I got these pics today in Central New jersey, along the Raritan River. I saw a peregrine falcon later.. are these pics also of the peregrine falcon? Or is this something else. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The last pic was the falcon, along the water... I'm not sure what its doing... is it eating a rock? Maybe that's shellfish?
  5. I saw these birds today on the Raritan River in Central New Jersey. Is the bird with the Bufflehead a Common Goldeneye?
  6. I spent the day at Overpeck Park in Northern New Jersey, mostly looking for a pink-footed goose that was reported on E-Bird recently...so I spent a lot of time looking at geese. This one seemed odd with the facial markings, but I'm sure its just a Canada Goose with a very narrow cheek patch... but I didn't know there was such a thing as a pink footed goose until recently....
  7. I saw these birds today at Overpeck Park in Northern New Jersey. I've had a cackling goose here before. Are any of these also a cackling? The neck and size seem good, but the beak seems long...I just can't tell for sure.. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  9. I saw this bird today at Overpeck Park in Northern New Jersey. This time I got video with audio. Is this a fish crow? PXL_20210116_170117492[1].mp4
  10. I saw this bird over the summer at a nature preserve in southern New Jersey. I had these as glossy ibis.. but is the first pic a white faced ibis? I didn't even realize that was a different breed at the time..
  11. I saw this bird today near DeKorte Park, in Northern New Jersey. I think its a young white crowned sparrow, but any help would be greatly appreciated.
  12. I took this picture at a nature preserve in Morris County, NJ. I know there can't be a bird in this picture but I swear it looks like a set of eyes looking out from the top of the opening... this picture has me unnerved...
  13. I saw these birds at Troy Meadows Nature Preserve in Morris County, NJ. I am thinking swamp sparrow and song sparrow, but sparrows always trip me up.. any help would be greatly appreciated.
  14. I saw this bird today at Troy Meadows preserve in Morris County, New Jersey. I'm thinking its a juvenile red shouldered, but any help would be greatly appreciated.
  15. I saw these birds at Overpeck County Park in Bergen County, New Jersey. I couldn't hear them because they were a bit off in the distance, but there was a body of water nearby. Is there a way to determine these are fish crow without audio?
  16. I saw this bird today at Overpeck County Park in Bergen County, New Jersey. It was smaller than other nearby geese, and its neck and beak make it seem like its worth asking... Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  17. I saw these birds today in Bergen County, New Jersey. I believe they are Cooper's Hawks, but any help would be greatly appreciated.
  18. I saw this bird today at the Eagle Rock Reservation in Essex County New Jersey. It was at a distance and behind branches so I don't have a good focus on it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  19. I saw this bird today at the Celery Farm in Bergen County, New Jersey. I think its a Carolina Wren, but any help would be greatly appreciated.
  20. I saw these birds yesterday at the Celery Farm in Bergen County, New Jersey. It was really foggy and damp, which made for some bad pics.. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  21. I saw these birds this past Friday at Raritan Bay in Middlesex, NJ, on the Jersey Shore. This is really the first time I have seen scaup, and there were a lot.. I'm trying to use head shape to understand how to ID greater vs lesser scaup. In the first pic, are the two male scaup facing left near the front greater scaup, and the bird in the back a lesser scaup? In the second pic, the birds in the center, the male on the right greater, the others lesser? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  22. If it makes it easier, lets add pheasants, grouse, or prairie-chicken to the challenge? I myself have never gotten a picture of any of those....
  23. Last question from me.. These birds, with a white bar extending the length of the wing, would be greater scaup, right?
