  1. my favorite tip is that the split white eye-ring is incomplete at the top and bottom of the eye.
  2. The sloping forehead and the white patches on the wings would suggest a Common Goldeneye. Wait for an expert.
  3. Kinda looks like a flycatcher to me. Maybe an Eastern Phoebe? (in my opinion) I am not an expert.
  4. Looks like a Loggerhead to me with the big head, large bill, and lack of any fine barring on the chest. I am not an expert.
  5. Thanks for your help. As Colton V pointed out, the Junco is most likely a female Slate-colored. It's just that I see many Juncos all year long and this one being so brown just stood out.
  6. On the Salt Marsh Trail in Halifax, Nova Scotia this morning. Could be a female Red-winged Blackbird but I thought I should ask you folks to have a look. Also I saw a very brown Dark-eyed Junco that stood out from the others. Thanks
  7. Thanks IKLland. Since I posted, I looked at last weeks' ebird reports for the Salt Marsh Trail hotspot where I took these photos and there were two Long-billed Dowitchers confirmed at the same spot on Dec.21st. Since there hasn't been a Short-billed in oner a month, I think they are probably continuing birds.
  8. Blurry pictures taken at sunset this evening in Nova Scotia at a tidal marsh. Very sketchy yellow light. Long or Short-billed would be a new bird for me. Thanks for looking.
  9. Thanks folks. It's causing quite a stir. Posting photos is so important because, You never know!!!
  10. This morning in Nova Scotia. Most likely Hudsonian but I have no experience with this bird. Thanks
  11. I see lots of both here in Nova scotia often together and size difference is a good field marker with the GRCO being larger than the DCCO. Even without comparison that white throat and stout bill would be enough for me to ID this bird as a Great Cormorant. The rarity of GRCOs in Alabama has me doubting myself. I defer to the experts
  12. I wouldn't expect to see a woodpecker on a roof, but a male Williamson's Sapsucker has a mostly black back and white stripes on it's face.
  13. My guesses : Sabine's Gull, Common Tern, Sanderlings, Piping Plover, Black Bellied Plover.
  14. Today in Nova Scotia. Prairie Warbler would be a new bird for me so I would like confirmation before reporting. Thanks so much.
