  1. Hi there, I was wondering if this song (audio file attached) is a Louisiana Waterthrush (or perhaps a Northern Waterthrush?--I don't have much experience with either species)? I recorded it this morning in Thompson, CT. Thanks, Joe O'Leary Road.m4a
  2. Wow, haha, thanks! I actually was considering if it might be something as simple as that... Best, Joe
  3. Hi there, I've been meaning to figure out/confirm what kind of sparrow this is? Is it just a regular ol' Song Sparrow, or something else? Seen in Providence, RI, date: October 25, 2020. Best, Joe
  4. Hi there, I would like help identifying this bird, seen in Red Rock State Park in Sedona, AZ, on March 19th of this year. It had a prominent white eyebrow... Best, Joe
  5. Hi there, Wished to confirm if these birds in the photo are semipalmated sandpipers? They were smaller in size than a nearby Solitary Sandpiper that they were foraging along with. I note whitish eyebrow (juveniles?), scaly-ish back pattern, the legs as far as I could tell were dark. The milieu was a dried-up pond area, interior (not coastal), Providence County, RI, a few days ago... Thanks, Joe
  6. Thanks for the helpful feedback! I didn't know youngster swamps can have yellow in the face... I did observe a field sparrow concurrently on the same plant as the swamp sparrow, so from your feedback looks like I must have just captured the field sparrow in the background with its back to the camera (I wasn't focusing on it)...I think in the third photo you can kind of make out the eye ring and pink bill... Thanks again, Joe
  7. Hi there, Need help identifying this sparrow, which was viewed two days ago in Providence County, RI. Is this a swamp sparrow? One thing is that could've sworn the bird had traces of yellow in the lores area (seen with my binocs, but it probably doesn't show too much in the photos), so I thought possibly a white-throated. One other question re: the first photo, which I didn't notice at the time: is that a Lincoln's Sparrow perched underneath the sparrow I'm asking about? I notice what looks like a yellow breast with streaking... Thanks, Joe
  8. Hi there, looking for help IDing this shorebird, taken two days ago at Napatree Point in RI. To me, viewed from some distance, it looked medium in size and I think the bright white areas in the face (especially in the first two photos) got my attention. Perhaps it's just another Sanderling, but I thought it looked bigger than them and was a solitary forager... Thanks, Joe
  9. Hi there, I wanted to confirm that this bird is a Willet? A large-sized shorebird, photos taken yesterday at Napatree Point in Rhode Island. Usually I hope to see the black-and-white wing pattern, but it was foraging on the ground the entire time...
