  1. I am going to go with a juvenile Sabine's, based on the lack of any consistent ear patch or black wing lines (especially in the 2nd photo). It could easily be a opossum in a gull costume as well! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Unsure on shorebird in Maine

    I agree with Lesser Yellowlegs. Cool photos of it in flight!

    Lesser/Greater Yellowlegs?

    Both are definitely yellowlegs, but the trouble comes when figuring out which type of yellowlegs... My best guess would be greater for both, but you should wait to hear what others have to say.

    Spotted Sandpiper in Maine?

    Looks good! Is it rare for your area?

    Agree with Grey Francolin. They are very noisy!

    Tern ID

    The one with the yellow bill is definitely a least, but I am not sure about the one in the background. Maybe?

    Finch ID

    I would lean to a Purple Finch based on the bill shape, but you should wait for the input of others.

    My most recent lifer (as of this writing) is the Wedge-tailed Shearwater:

    Black Rumped Waxbill

    Cool find! You should submit this to ebird (if you havenʻt done so already), as the Black-rumped Waxbill is though to be extirpated from the big island (Read about it here: http://hbs.bishopmuseum.org/birds/rlp-monograph/pdfs/07-ZOST-ESTR/BRUW.pdf)!

    Agreed. Nice photos!

    Wood duck thirded.

    Female Blue-winged Teal?

    The little white patch near the bird's gape is what first caught my eye. Is it a definitive feature?

    Bird identification

    The brownish/reddish thighs also point to Great Blue, although they can sometimes be difficult to see. Gray Herons will have white thighs!
