    That seems to be a two-way street around here.  Photographers attempting to improve their ID skills, and birders trying to take better photos.  :classic_wink:

    Did you know this site has a separate photo forum?

    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! 🙂

    Welcome.  I'm with HamRHead.  These shot are not just great for ID purposes, they're great overall.  The turnstone in particular is a nice shot of a bird being a bird.

    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 🙂

  3. 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! 


  4. 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!
