  1. Thank you! I'm still trying to see if I can find a way to differentiate the greater from the lesser. In my judgement, on pic 5, the bills seem longer and the flecking seems to extend farther down the breast. They also seem a little stockier to me which seems most likely to be greater. I thought the most likely to be lesser was number 1 for the opposite reasons. I know angles and distance make this difficult though...
  2. That is exciting, thank you all! How come I don't see a Ruff on the Cornell All About Birds site? Is this a bird not common in North America?
  3. I saw these birds yesterday at a nature preserve in Essex County, NJ. Any help identifying them would be greatly appreciated.
  4. I saw these birds today walking through a nature preserve in Essex county, NJ. I love warbler season, but they are so hard to get good pictures of... I believe I got 1. American redstart 2. Black throated blue warbler 3. Maybe yellow rumped warbler... 4. The only bird that color I know of in NJ is an indigo bunting 5. I wish I got a better picture... maybe a bay breasted warbler? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  5. I saw these birds yesterday at DeKorte park in Northern New Jersey. I believe they are Forster's terns, but any help would be greatly appreciated.
  6. I saw these birds yesterday at DeKorte park in Northern New Jersey. Is there any way to definitively identify them as either lesser or greater yellowlegs? In the last picture, the bird on the left seems to lack the spotting of a yellow legs so I don't know what that bird is.. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  7. I saw these birds yesterday at DeKorte park in Northern New Jersey. They were close to each other. I thought they were semipalmated sandpiper, but now I'm not sure.. Could they be a western? I think the legs are black but is it possible they are just covered in mud? If not, could they be a least? Maybe two different birds? Ugh... Any help would be appreciated.
  8. I saw this bird today at DeKorte Park in Northern New Jersey. At first I thought it was a yellow rumped warbler, as they were abundant today, but now I think its a blackpoll warbler, which would be a first for me. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  9. I saw this bird today at DeKorte Park in Northern New Jersey. I believe it might be an ovenbird, or maybe a Swainson's thrush...but any help would be greatly appreciated. It was in some brush next to a body of water at the park.
  10. I saw these birds today at DeKorte park in Northern New Jersey. I have a really, really , really hard time identifying the different sandpipers, and there were a lot out today. I think these are all Least Sandpipers, but any help would be greatly appreciated. If I'm wrong.. could you tell me which characteristic you used to make your identification?
  11. I saw these birds walking through a nature trail today in Montclair, New Jersey. I believe these are male and female yellow bellied sapsuckers, but any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

  17. Thank you. So interesting! I was looking over the E-Bird checklist for DeKorte and it seems more likely to be a Long-Billed Dowitcher based on what was reported. If I go with the Long billed, it would be a new bird for me! https://ebird.org/hotspot/L389007
