  1. I saw these birds today at a local park today in Essex County New Jersey. I think these are a palm warbler, white throated sparrow, red eyed vireo, and maybe a purple finch..maybe a house finch... Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  2. Based on what was identified yesterday, I went back to the hiking trail in Essex County, New Jersey today in hopes of getting a better picture of a Northern Parula.. I did not get a better picture..., but could you verify this bird is a Northern Parula? It gave me one second of the perfect shot, but I couldn't get the camera focused.. DOH!
  3. I saw these birds today while I was walking through a wooded trail in northern New Jersey. More pics I wish the birds would have posed nicer for.. I realize I am struggling a bit with the non-breeding plumage, and not so great pictures.. so any help would be greatly appreciated.
  4. The first bird was warbler size.. They were all warbler sized birds.. My initial thought was a black throated blue warbler.
  5. I saw these birds today while I was walking a wooded trail in Essex County New Jersey. Unfortunately, none of these pics came out very good .. 😞 Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  6. I saw this bird today near the entrance to a wooded trail in Essex County New Jersey. I couldn't get a better picture, but any help would be greatly appreciated.
  7. I saw this bird today at a pond in Essex County. There had been reports of a pectoral sandpiper on E-Bid at this spot, which is what brought me here.. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  8. I saw these birds today at a nature preserve in Bergen County, NJ. These birds moved quickly and were a challenge to photograph.. I think these would be a blue-gray gnatcatcher, and a red eyed vireo? Any help would be greatly appreciated..
  9. Is it a female for the prairie? and I have one more I'm not sure of.. is this one also a yellow?
  10. I will accept the perceived sarcasm given my vast level of peep ignorance. 😧
  11. Thank you! Can I ask a follow up.. are these also leasts? I think the birds in flight are with the black in the center of the tail.. In the second picture, I guess the bird in the front right is the one I'm most unsure of.. Thank you!
  12. I saw this bird last week at a nature preserve in Northern New Jersey. I had seen several Least flycatchers, so I assumed this was also a Least. The lighting is bad, so maybe its an illusion, but the eye ring seems less pronounced to me than the other leasts.. Is this also a least flycatcher? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  13. Oops... I haven't coffee yet.. sorry about whatever I did with these pics...
  14. I saw these birds a few days back at a nature preserve in Northern New Jersey.. They all seem to have different coloration, which I know could be age, or if they are breeding.....but any help would be greatly appreciated.
  15. I saw these birds this past Sunday at a Nature Preserve in Northern New Jersey. I believe the first is a black and white. The other two birds were in the same bushes, but they don't seem to be the same species...Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  16. If it helps at all, here is a few more pics of the last bird.. but I didn't get any good frontal shots. The nature preserve I was at is DeKorte Park in the Meadowlands, and looking at E-Bird, there are reported sightings of Least and yellow bellied, so that didn't help either...
  17. I saw this bird yesterday at a Nature Preserve in Northern New Jersey. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  18. I spent several hours at the preserve, and I saw a few more very similar birds.. would these also be Least Flycatchers?
  19. I saw these birds today at a nature preserve in Northern New Jersey. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  20. I saw these birds today at a Nature Preserve in Northern New Jersey. I think I have a goldfinch, although it seems drab for a goldfinch... and maybe a least flycatcher? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  21. I saw these birds today at a local park in Essex County New Jersey. I believe I have a juvenile double crested cormorant, a spotted sandpiper, and a green heron, but any help would be greatly appreciated.
  22. I saw these birds today at our local park in Essex County New Jersey. I couldn't get a good pic, but I am curious what birds are living right by me.. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  23. OK, I think I have gone through all my pics during my recent trip to the Edwin Forsythe Wildlife Refuge in Ocean County, NJ… This is the last group of peeps that is confusing me.. I'm looking at these peeps and I know I see semi-palmated sandpipers, but the bird in the back looks darker.. the more I stare at these pics, the more they all look different.. I need help. Are these all just semipalmated sandpipers?
  24. I saw these birds at a wildlife refuge in Ocean County New Jersey last week. I know these are dowitchers, and I think these are all short-billed dowitchers. But if there is a long-billed dowitcher in the mix, or anything else...I would greatly appreciate anyone telling me how they ID'd it... The bird in the foreground of the first pic was the one I thought most likely to be a long-billed. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  25. OK, I have a few more that have me confused. I saw these birds last week at a wildlife refuge in Ocean County New Jersey. In the first pick, is the bird on the left a willet and on the right a yellow legs or spotted sandpiper? Are the big gulls in the second pic Herring gulls? I think those are avocet behind a forsters tern in the third pic.. I didn't even notice the avocet when I was trying to get the gull.. that was a peasant surprise. And is the next tern a gull billed tern? Are the flying birds whimbrel? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
