  1. 09/12/2021....Dawsonville, GA.....morning I think its LEYE...legs are muddy, but I thnk I see some yellow...solitary sandpiper (which I've seen at this same location previously) has a much more prominent eyering (& green legs). The bill does not appear to be upturned (eliminating greater?)
  2. 05/21/2021....Dawsonville, GA....morning several (what I thought were Phoebes) flitting around a fence. Note - they were not particular vocal. I originally wrote them off as juvenile phoebes (pic attached is the only good one). I was looking for longer primary projection (pewee) but I'm not confident I could discern (with certainty) the tail from the primaries in this pic.
  3. 11/15/2020....mid-morning....Duluth, GA (North and East of Atlanta)
  4. 11/15/2020.....Mid-morning (very overcast).....Duluth, Georgia (just North and East of Atlanta). It looks like a vesper - distinct eye ring & white outer tail feathers. And it does appear to have the chestnut shoulder patch. Nevertheless, its seems a bit buffier in color than others I've seen. The picture is so-so at best. It was very overcast as well.
  5. ok...I'm new to sparrows outside of my backyard so I've started categorizing my sparrow pics ( I have separate groups of pics for Song, Field, Savannah, & Swamp)...the first 3 pics attached I have categorized as a Swamp sparrow (all 3 are same bird)...although the colors appear a bit more muted than 4th pic (lucky camera shot taken previous week, same location) I just want to make sure I haven't mis-ID'ed them all pics are from Rogers Bridge Road (eBird hotspot) a few miles east of Alpharetta, GA (1st 3 pics are from Oct 24, 2020)....(last pic Oct 16, 2020)
  6. 2020/10/24...morning...Duluth, GA (just North & East of Atlanta)
  7. 2020/10/16...mid-morning...Duluth, GA area (just north of Atlanta) ok...I've been staring at this for some time - I've maybe narrowed it to 3 or 4 warblers starting with Yellow-rumped & Cape May distinctive auricular / not-so distinctive supecilium / undercarriage of yellow & white with some streaking / neither lighting nor angle is great (i.e. not-so-great photos)

  9. the ebird reviewer asked me to change it to Traill's - he suggested I needed a sound recording to nail it as an Acadian...I believe I may have messed this up myself by not noting Benjamin's comment about the long primary projection...something I've paid more attention to now that I'm asking about (Alder vs Willow) from this morning - it's primary projection is noticeably shorter than the Acadian's from the previous week.
  10. 2020/10/03...morning...Matt Community Park...Forsyth County, GA (north-central GA) 2 pics of same bird...2nd pic provides a additional view of its primary projection it didn't really make any sound while I was watching
  11. 2020/10/03...morning...Matt Community Park...Forsyth County, GA (north central part of state) 3 pics
  12. white eye-ring, yellowish head with white underparts - and 2 rather distinct wingbars 2020/09/27 @09:22 eastern - Matt Community Park...Forsyth County Park (Georgia)
  13. yep...I see the white patch under the tail on the Tennessee warbler (but not on philadelphia vireo) thanks!!
  14. 2020/09/20....morning....North Georgia....Forsyth county....Matt Community Park (county park) This one is tougher - pics are not very good
