  1. Part of this could be the light- in the first photo it appears quite yellow, but in the subsequent two only very slightly
  2. @The Bird Nuts I'm probably missing something obvious here, but how is Broad-winged Hawk eliminated?
  3. One hell of an irruption this year. Got my lifer just last week! If finches continue at the rate they're going, we're in for a real treat with Crossbills, Evening Grosbeaks, and hopefully more.
  4. I don't have any knowledge about Bobwhites with brood patches in particular, but that does generally look like it is a brood patch.
  5. I've never had Pacific Golden-Plover before but I'm fairly certain they are substantially brighter than this- this looks like a standard American Golden-Plover to me. Notice the long primary projection as well.
  6. Absolutely Long-eared Owl. Great looks at an elusive and difficult to find bird
  7. Agreed, and that bill is too massive for Pacific.
  8. It is a Barnacle x Cackler. There's a good number of records of these birds in the Northeast. For example from a couple weeks ago: https://ebird.org/checklist/S75007939
  9. Wow! Pretty gory, but cool. Definitely a House Sparrow.
  10. I'm rather surprised that the bird's ID is being contested- this is quite clearly an Acadian Flycatcher. The GISS is completely wrong for Yellow-bellied, which tends to have an overall structural impression similar to Least. Even the bill alone should be enough to eliminate Yellow-bellied-- that thing is huge!
  11. That sounds like a Snipe to me.... Woodcock usually prefer the forest floor.
  12. Yes, Pine Siskin. Lesser Goldfinches look much different.
  13. Almost all Dowitchers inland this late are Long-billed.
