  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.
  13. 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
  14. Geez. Looks like a pronothorary to me, but wait for the experts.
  15. Sorry, I missed the front one (ie. Left one). THAT one looks like a lesser. So: front left, lesser middle, greater back right, greater
  16. 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.....
  17. The white phase of the Great Blue heron will have yellowish legs.....and be in Southern Florida usually.
  18. Ahhh, Cocoa Beach...one of my most favourite places in the world. The one with the orange legs is a juvenile Royal Tern. The one with the black bill is a Sandwich Tern.
  19. Bird 1 looks like a female Brown Headed Cowbird to me. Bird 2....I'm bad enough with Flycatchers in the East, so Western ones would be even worse. That being said, the wing bars look good for a Pewee, but you're right, that bill looks really big. Maybe wait for the experts on that one.
  20. The more I look at it, the third pic looks like a house wren.
  21. The first two pics I'd say Orange Crowned.....broken eye ring and very faint olive streaking. The third pic looks different, but could just be the exposure.
