  1. 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.
  2. 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...
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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?
  6. 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.
  7. I saw these birds today in Bergen County, New Jersey. I believe they are Cooper's Hawks, but any help would be greatly appreciated.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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....
  13. Last question from me.. These birds, with a white bar extending the length of the wing, would be greater scaup, right?
  14. I have another pic of the scaup. Does the length of the wing stripe confirm lesser scaup?
  15. I saw these birds yesterday at the Raritan Bay, on the Jersey Shore in central New Jersey. I have such a hard time with gulls.. I know there are ring-bills in here, but any help would be appreciated. I have a lot of questions, but I'll try to ask a few at a time, and maybe I will get better at identifying them myself...
  16. I saw these birds today at the Raritan Bay along the Jersey Shore. Unfortunately for me, all were at a pretty good distance... Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  18. I saw these birds yesterday at DeKorte Park in the Meadowland in Northern New Jersey. I believe these are all song sparrows, but I've screwed up song sparrow ID's before, so I figure it's better to get confirmation than trust my own ID abilities. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
