  1. Spotted today while walking through El Yunque National Forest in Easter Puerto Rico. Had just stopped raining and barely got my camera up to get this shot before it flew off. I know this is a long shot, since can't see the bill or underparts. Was hoping that tail shape and coloration could help distinguish. Any help would be appreciated! Mike
  2. 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 🙂
  3. 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
  4. 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!
  5. Is this a semipalmated sandpiper? Seems like the beak is thicker and shorter than other pics I'm seeing. Man these shorebirds are hard.
  6. Great blue heron that was absolutely terrorizing a flight of double-crested cormorants today in Tarpon Springs, FL
  7. 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! 🙂

  21. 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 🙂
  22. 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!
