  1. Yup, I think you all nailed it. I see them frequently in the dead of winter, but I can’t remember hearing one sing. Thanks for the help!
  2. That’s a good thought, but this was on a rocky beach among thick patches of goldenrod and ragweed.
  3. Hello all, I heard the bird in the attached recordings this morning in coastal New Hampshire. It was very windy, so they’re not the best recordings. But you can hear the finch-like song pretty clearly. Any idea what it might be? Thanks! Song1.m4a Song2.m4a
  4. Thanks for all your input! Unfortunately, that’s the only shot I managed where you can see the bird’s head.
  5. I saw this bird today at Odiorne State Park in Rye, New Hampshire. I think I can rule out other lookalike species (Nashville warbler, common yellowthroat). Am I right? Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
  6. Yeahhhh, I wish I was able to get a better photo in better lighting before some people spooked it. Thanks for taking the time!
  7. Could be, but I initially ruled it out because I can’t see any streaks on the flanks.
  8. I saw this bird yesterday at Parker River National Wildlife Refuge in coastal Massachusetts. The bird was bigger than a peep and smaller than nearby stilt sandpipers. I wish I was able to get a better photo, but this was the best I could do. The overall size, bill size and shape, markings on the neck and chest, and leg color has me thinking Baird’s sandpiper. However, I’m not sure the photo is good enough for me to make that call. Your thoughts are appreciated!
  9. Yup, high-elevation spruce-fir forest. Part of my job is to survey for them every June. They’re easy to find in the right habitat.
  10. Sweet, I’ll take it. I see and hear Bicknell’s all summer long in the mountains. Gray-cheeked is a lifer.
  11. Thanks, good to know. I guess the odds are good it’s a gray-cheeked since there are way more of them in the world. Are you seeing any decent field marks in these photos?
