    Some kind of Sandpiper?

    Yep, I'm going to agree with greater yellowlegs. I got burned recently on a similar mistake.

    Dowitcher Query

    Yep, short-billed. See how the buffy colour extends all the way up those feathers? Among other things, the buffy colour would be more limited to the tips in long-billed.
  3. Yes, welcome! That middle pic is outstanding!

    Cayo Coco, Cuba in March

    Hey everyone. As the title suggests, I'm heading to Cuba in March, and I'm looking for any insights about the birding situation there. Cayo Coco is relatively central on the Northern Coast.

    Confirm Downy

    I don't think it's the size here that has people leaning Hairy.....it's the relative proportion of the bill size to the head. I agree with Hairy too.

    More VT warblers

    I believe number 3 is a common yellowthroat. i agree with the rest of your IDs.

    Snipe & Warbler

    I agree with both.

    Long-billed Dowitcher?

    Though the breeding plumage isn't in great shape, the buffy edging appears to be pretty limited around the end of the feathers, so I would lean towards long-billed yes.

    Confirm a flock of peeps

    Shoot, sorry. Ottawa, Ontario. Rookie mistake. Thanks for the Bump!

    Shore Bird

    This is a Willet, still in breeding plumage. The thick bill here is one thing you could use to distinguish it from a yellowlegs.
  11. Sorry for the poor image quality, but I think there's enough here to confirm. I'm thinking these are Semipalmated Sandpipers. Am I right? Thanks in advance, Mike

    What warbler?

    Geez. Looks like a pronothorary to me, but wait for the experts.

    another sandpiper, NW PA

    Leaning Pectoral, but a tough pic.
  14. Sorry, I missed the front one (ie. Left one). THAT one looks like a lesser. So: front left, lesser middle, greater back right, greater
  15. Both look like greaters to me. A upturn of the bill in the front one says greater, and the one behind it looks very similar. My thought is that the back one may appear smaller, only because it further away. My 2 cents.....
