  1. Based on the amount of white and the Purple in the beak I would say this is a second year bird...
  2. Looks like one lone red breasted female in the last pic,just to the left of center behind the gadwall edit- actually there is another in front of the gadwall also..although,they could be commons...
  3. Anyone want to take a stab at the sub species of this, Just want it for my own curiousity , Taken two days ago in south jersey at a local pond, No biggie if it cant be identified....It seems to have a longer bill then I am used to.
  4. Yeah, Only seen a handful that close,and most have been sick or injured,although we do get flybys at the seawatch from time to time. Probably the bill deformity is causing eating problems. Thanks for the ID, I was starting to think I was goin crazy...
  5. I thought the same thing,thats why I am asking...
  6. Taken today in Barnegat light,I dont know what else it could be. Bird was preening on beach,looked tired maybe injured, called, left message for possible rescue but with the holidays I havnt heard back. I left it on the beach, actively preening,hope it survives...
  7. Agreed, not sure if Juvy or female, I am sure someone with duck knowledge will fill that in...
  8. HI John, Heres a pic of a seaside I took during the summer this year,you can see how plain they are, good luck in the search for one!
  9. The third goose from the left side on the bottom is a snow, the two above it could be Ross’s but I don’t think you could get an Id from the pics.. edit- sniped by Alex henry
  10. Thanks, again. I see chipping now. the black isnt shadow,no sun there today to create shadows,it was raining like the dickens though.
  11. Thanks!! the legs were bothering me also but the black kinda rules out chipping no? Several longspurs were reported there today in the same area with reports of different stages of plumage.
  12. Cant see that last one being a chipping sparrow, heres another pic of it from the side,had to clean it up somewhat. still leaning lapland longspur to me. edit- and thanks for all the replies! you guys rock!
  13. All taken today in lousy rainy weather in south jersey. Thanks in advance... Ipswich savannah? Saltmarsh or nelsons? looks like enough yellow wash for nelsons but I am not sure this might be the same bird Lapland longspur?
  14. Also fall migrating Blackpolls are known to forage at ground level...
  15. Common heres a pic of both together for you to see the difference edit- sorry common on the left,red breasted on the right
  16. I agree,not enough brown and white mottling to make it a second year,and the full purple beak rules out third year...
