  1. Thank you folks. This was very helpful. W.r.t. the peep, I agree it was a tough angle. It was found in the salt pans as opposed to the beach. Just FYI.
  2. Hi again, I would like your help with the following birds: 1) Is this a seaside sparrow? It has the grayish chest and below. It appears to show the yellowish stripe in front of eye. And I don't see the orangish mustache I would expect in a saltmarsh sparrow. Also here are a two more photos (which I believe is the same bird): 2) Are these Eastern Wood-peewees? [There are 3-4 different birds in here] The wingbars did not look white enough for me to lean towards a willow flycatcher. At the same time, these birds were perching low, and the pewees I've seen typically perch higher up. 3) Eastern Phoebe? This one was hanging out in the same area as the pewees. However, it seems to lack wingbars. And the bill looks fully black. 4) White-rumped sandpiper? I doubt if it's a least sandpiper with dirty legs. 5) I am not expecting this to get ID but would be interested in your thoughts. It did not look like a Willet to me. I would guess a greater/lesser yellowlegs. Thanks!
  3. Thanks folks. I'll leave it as sparrow sp. then.
  4. Hi Sean, Thanks for your input. The reason I did not think it was a Song sparrow was because: - I would expect the streaks on chest to be more discernible, extending further down, and may be a small spot on the chest - More contrasting facial patterns (see first photo) Of course, if this was a juvenile, then I am not confident about the points mentioned above :) - Nevine
  5. Hi Folks, This is from the same trip (in White Mountains region in NH) for which I had asked earlier about the Bicknell's/Hermit thrush. I would like your thoughts on the following two birds: 1) A Lincoln's sparrow? [While it does not have the crisp streaks on the breast I've seen on an adult, it does not look like a swamp or song sparrow to me either] 2) A young or female Common Yellowthroat? [The faint eyebrow is throwing me off] Thanks for the help!
  6. Thanks akiley. Hermit thrush is the more likely bird in this place. While ebird does not treat Bicknell's thrush as rare, it is an uncommon bird here.
  7. Hi again, I realized that I had two more photos of this bird. Can you take a look, and let me know if they give a better clue? [From what I see, I don't see the rusty colored tail which I expect in a Hermit's thrush]
  8. Thank you folks for your input. Since I did not get a good look at the tail on this bird (cloudy day and bird was far away), I leave this one as a thrush sp.
  9. Hi, I heard this bird near the White Mountains region in NH. It sounded like a Swainson's Thrush to me. Please listen to the attached audio (Thrush.m4a). However, when I saw the pictures, it looks more like a Bicknell's thrush (lack of distinct eyering, sharper bill). See the pictures below: Note that it is totally possible that the bird producing the sound, and that in the photos are two different birds. I appreciate the help in advance.
