I saw these birds today at DeKorte Park in Bergen County, New Jersey. They must be Ring-billed gulls, but they look so much cuter than they normally do. Are these young ones? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I saw this bird today at Becker Park, in Northern, New Jersey. I couldn't the camera on it until it had almost passed me... I thought it was a raptor, but seemed very pale on its chest and belly compared to the usual red tails I see.... Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I saw these birds over the past weekend at the Barnegat Bay Lighthouse in Ocean county, NJ. I think they are all song sparrows, but since sparrows are my nemesis, I thought I should confirm. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I saw these birds today at the Barnegat Lighthouse in Ocean County, NJ. Can someone help me figure out which if any are Common Loon and which are red-throated loon? Any hlp would be greatly appreciated.
I saw these birds today at the Barnegat Lighthouse in Ocean County, NJ. I thought these were all female Common Eider, but now I see someone reported a King Eider... So the first pic I think is female common, and the second pic has a male common, but after that, I don't know what I'm looking at.. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

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.

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?

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....
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.

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..

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...
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.
