  1. I just returned from a hike in Halifax, Nova Scotia.  I would like a little help before I report. Pics #1 & #2 are the same bird and I think Philadelphia Vireo or Warbling. Either would be a first for me. Pics #3, #4, and #5 are the same bird. There is such a yellow/green wash over the bird from the foliage, I'm confused. I don't expect an ID from pic #6, but you folks on this site always surprise me. Thanks for taking a look.

  2. Lots of Yellow Warblers and Common Yellowthroats along the hiking trail at Crystal Cresent Provincial Park in Nova Scotia this morning. I am unsure of these two warblers and could use some help. I believe the photos are of the same two birds but can't be sure. Thanks for taking a look. 







  3. Sea watching from a point this morning in Nova Scotia. A great morning once the fog moved off with no wind and calm seas. Many Shearwaters flew low to the water, and I managed a couple of photos of smaller birds that overtook and passed the Shearwaters. They both had rapid wingbeats.  The first bird may be a Murre of some kind or a Razorbill and the second an Atlantic Puffin. Can you folks confirm or suggest something else? Thanks     (oh, The photos have been cropped but not altered. )

  4. The first bird is a Lark Sparrow distinguished by its unique bold facial pattern. The second bird may be a House Wren with its plain brown crown, thin slightly curved bill, and lack of discernible eyebrow. The third bird looks to be a flycatcher but I'm not confident, perhaps a Willow. (just a stab so wait for the experts)
