  1. WOW guess I was off by a bit. I have seen a lot of Carolina wrens, but never this young. Thanks for the reminder that I really do need help with this hobby of mine.
  2. A friend found this bird on his property north of Tampa, FL. The wide mouth makes me think of Caprimulgids, but, never having seen one this close I would like a second opinion. Where I live further south in FL, the Chuck-will's-widow and nighthawks are the most common in this family for me. Every now and again in early spring I might hear a whippoorwill. Therefore my gues on this one.
  3. Photo was taken 27 DEC 2020, probably on Sanibel Island, FL
  4. I have gotten so acustomed to seeing the resident Laughing and Ring-Billed Gulls over the summer that Herring Gull didn't even come to mind when I started looking this one up.
  5. Photo from the Sunshine Skyway south fishing pier at Tampa Bay on 09 DEC 2021.
  6. OK, so I looked back through my day book, and this photo came from the Morley Nelson Snake River Birds of Prey National Conservation Area on 30 AUG 2021. I found the original series of photos and have cropped this one and one other. Hope this helps.
  7. OK...so the bird in the photo--is that a yellow or a western? Actually, I just looked in Sibley Birds East, and it looks like the yellow supercilium gets this one into the yellow subspecies. Sibley lists yellow and brown types. Is the brown the same as your western?
  8. Thanks! I am beginning to really appreciate the seasonal variations in some bird species...this being one... They are super common here in FL, but they look different every time I see one!
  9. Photo from Babcock/Webb WMA in Charlotte County, FL 05 OCT 2020
  10. Photos from Corson's Inlet State Park in NJ October 2020. There are some sanderlings in two of these photos.
  11. Photos from a couple different sites in New Jersey over the past year or so.
  12. I photographed this bird at Belleplain State Forest in south NJ on 07 JUN 2021.
