  1. This morning in Nova Scotia. Savannah Sparrow ( Ipswich ) ? Thanks.
  2. Looks like a Lesser Yellowlegs to me. Shorter straight bill. I'm no expert.
  3. Re "pope's nose". I misspoke. My bad. What I meant was that the beak follows the line of the crown.
  4. My reasoning on the hawk is: Pope's nose, lighter nape, reasonably thick legs and the tail feathers look to be rounded but I welcome input. Thanks
  5. Nova Scotia this morning. I'm never too confident with new birds and don't want to post until I'm sure. Thanks for your time. Cooper's Hawk and Piping Plover?
  6. Nova Scotia this morning. Do I have a Swamp Sparrow and a White-crowned Sparrow? Thank you.
  7. I'd default to @AlexHenry. The bill sure looks like a Blue-winged. The lack of a pale spot at the base of the bill threw me off.
  8. I think juvenile Green-winged Teal. I am not an expert.
  9. Nova Scotia this morning. Maybe a Savannah Sparrow..........Thank you.
  10. Yeah, It was a Redwing. It caused quite a commotion.
  11. Reported to eBird. I am in Halifax, about 175 miles from Briar Island. Thank you everyone.
  12. Saw this bird on the coast of Nova Scotia this morning. I've not seen this bird before. My research has me looking at Northern Wheatear. Can it be?.......Thanks
  13. Far off the Nova Scotia coastline this morning. These distant and blurry pictures of a bird of prey are all I have. Can identification be made with simply a silhouette? Thanks for trying.
  14. Thanks @AlexHenryand @Peromyscus. My bad on the 4 letter name. S/B- SESA
  15. I was cleaning up my sd card and came across these pictures from Sept. 4th last week of SEDAs. This one may be a Baird's. Would yuo have a look? I think they are of the same bird. Thank you. (Nova Scotia)
  16. Cape May it is then. Thanks @Quiscalus quiscula
  17. Nova Scotia this morning. First I thought it was a Cape May, then a Blackburnian and then a Blackpoll. I need help.......Thanks
  18. I agree that the first two birds are Pectoral Sandpipers, noting the rust-edged,dark centered back feathers and the heavily streaked breast and white belly. They may be juveniles as their medium length slightly de-curved stocky bills don't seem to have an orange base. I'll pass on the peeps. I'm no expert.
  19. Agree with Ring-billed, noting yellow legs and prominent dark ring completely around the bill. Only missing the french fry. Also agree with Marbled Godwit for bird#2. I am not an expert.
  20. Looks good for a Juvenile (fall) noting the black-centered back feathers with buff edges along with the size comparison against the Killdeer. I am not an expert.
  21. This morning in Nova Scotia. I don't see many Red-winged Blackbirds. Is the yellow wash on the head normal? Thanks.
  22. Bang on folks! Thanks so much for the direction. There is picture on page 241 of the Warbler Guide of a one year old fall female that is the spittin' image of this bird. Don't think I'd have gotten there without your help.
