  1. Turns out my Merlin app was set to the wrong location (facepalm) so the yellow throated wasn't showing up. Once I updated the location this answers became much more obvious! Thank you all for the quick response 🙂
  2. I thought this was an Anna's, because that is what normally is seen in San Diego, but quite obviously has the orange rufous coloring. Taken 12/20/19 in Rancho Bernardo, CA. Thanks, Mike
  3. Hello all! My mom took this amazing picture of a bird that has been tapping at her window yesterday in Tarpon Springs, FL. I tried a Merlin bird ID and nothing came up. Thank you!
  4. Is this a semipalmated sandpiper? Seems like the beak is thicker and shorter than other pics I'm seeing. Man these shorebirds are hard.
  5. Great blue heron that was absolutely terrorizing a flight of double-crested cormorants today in Tarpon Springs, FL
  6. I hadn't seen that yet, thank you for sharing! I just got back from a walk, will post my best from today after I sort! 🙂

  20. Thank you so much! Wildlife photography has been hobby for a while and it has finally turned me on to birding. I've only just started tracking sightings on eBird and wow, I'm looking forward to the day where I don't have to look up EVERY bird to get a positive ID. Thank you for the great welcome to your community, I'm sure I'll have many more questions soon 🙂
  21. You guys are great, thank you so much! Looking back at Merlin, the first photos of both these show breeding adults, while these are non-breeding, so the colors are much more muted with completely different patterns. I had to flip through a few more photos. Good lesson for me and I definitely appreciate your input!
  22. Hi all, this is my first post. I'm struggling to identify two birds I saw while on a walk this evening in Tarpon Springs, FL (about 40 minutes North of Tampa). I saw them right at dusk, and they were feeding in the sand near a large flock of laughing gulls and black skimmers. There were an assortment of wading birds all together. I have a couple ideas but want to hear what you all think! Sorry the pictures aren't great and I didn't get many - it was getting late and light wasn't good. Thanks!
