  1. I'll give it a try. My guess is a Willow Flycatcher. Based on slender body,orange lower mandible, indistinct eye-ring, medium bill, dull wing bars and I think I can see medium primary extention. Without hearing its 'fitz-bew' call, it looks very similar to an Alder Flycatcher. I'm definitely not an expert and may be way off base, so wait for an expert.
  2. I think this is a Sharp-shinned, but with this poor image, should it be reported on ebird as Sharp-shinned/Cooper's Hawk? Halifax,Nova Scotia this morning. Thanks
  3. I think this is a Glaucous. I note that it has the rounded head of an Iceland but, the forward positioning of the eye as the result of the wider rear head points to Glaucous. As well,the white wing tips project less than a bill's length beyond the tail giving the gull a more compact look than an Iceland. Wait for the experts.
  4. At an oceanside beach in Nova Scotia this morning. Is this a Red Knot? Thanks for your assistance.
  5. Thanks for the input Aiden. GBBG are far more common here. Young gulls are a challenge.
  6. On the coast of Nova Scotia this morning. Might this be a Lesser Black-backed Gull? Thanks.
  7. This morning in Nova Scotia. Savannah Sparrow ( Ipswich ) ? Thanks.
  8. Looks like a Lesser Yellowlegs to me. Shorter straight bill. I'm no expert.
  9. Re "pope's nose". I misspoke. My bad. What I meant was that the beak follows the line of the crown.
  10. 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
  11. 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?
  12. Nova Scotia this morning. Do I have a Swamp Sparrow and a White-crowned Sparrow? Thank you.
  13. 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.
  14. I think juvenile Green-winged Teal. I am not an expert.
  15. Nova Scotia this morning. Maybe a Savannah Sparrow..........Thank you.
