  1. Agree with House Finch with the generally blurrier streaking. A good ID trait for finches and sparrows vs. thrush is the conical bill.
  2. Gray Catbirds are known to construct their nests near or on the ground and their eggs are blue-green and glossy.
  3. I agree with Birding Boy. Northern Pintail.
  4. Sorry for the double post. I was trying to edit my ID as the black legs are wrong, but I guess I was too late.
  5. My vote is for Hammond's as well. Very steep forehead, gray throat and chest, no wing panel contrast.
  6. Seems to match the description for a Willow. Shallow forehead, peaked crown, indistinct eye-ring, medium bill with orange lower mandible, dull wingbars and short fat tail. I'm not an expert. (Also, Alder would seem to be rare at this location.)
  7. IMO The rounded tip on the tail, the moderately streaked body and large head projecting in front of the wings suggests a juvenile Cooper's Hawk.
  8. I think an Acadian would have a longer bill and longer primary extention. It's a tough one. Maybe a Yellow-bellied.
  9. This Woodcock is just fine. I don't know why they occasionally bob along like this. Maybe it has a funky song playing in it's head.
  10. Seems to fit the bill for Roseate--Thin black bill,only two dark outer primaries on slender wings and all white tail.
  11. My guess would be common, based on what seems to be a gray body,dark tipped outer primaries and the bill looks to be quite reddish. I am not an expert.
  12. The blackish scapulars with frosty edges and the birds location on the shore has me leaning more towards Least Sandpiper. Wait for the experts.
  13. Halifax Nova scotia today. Can you have a look at these please. I think I have a Least and Yellow-bellied Flycatcher and a Swainson's Thrush. Thanks.
  14. Looks a bit like a Ruby-crowned Kinglet but wait for the experts.
  15. These are difficult for me but, the slight upturn of the bill in the first picture would suggest Greater Yellowlegs. Wait for more input.
