  1. Agreed. The colour looks like other female bluebills, but the peaked head sets it apart as a Ring-necked.
  2. The yellow on the face has me thinking Tri-coloured as well.
  3. Looks like a Cooper's to me (with the striped tail), but wait for the experts.
  4. How I identify Rough-Leggeds is the dark spot on the underside of the wing, which I think is see in your picture. Tough ID otherwise (for me anyways).
  5. Yep, I'm going to agree with greater yellowlegs. I got burned recently on a similar mistake.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. I believe number 3 is a common yellowthroat. i agree with the rest of your IDs.
  10. 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.
  11. Shoot, sorry. Ottawa, Ontario. Rookie mistake. Thanks for the Bump!
  12. This is a Willet, still in breeding plumage. The thick bill here is one thing you could use to distinguish it from a yellowlegs.
