  1. Hello, Forum! I was in the South Meadow of Pelham Bay Park in the Bronx, NYC when I spotted these sea ducks. I know the little guys are Ruddy ducks for sure, but the bigger black ones? Are they Scaups or Goldeneyes or something else? As always, your knowledge and help is greatly appreciated. Thank you and hope you're having a happy new year so far. -Peter [url=https://flic.kr/p/2ktn7YB][img]https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50849137347_9dbe3232b5_o.jpg[/img][/url][url=https://flic.kr/p/2ktn7YB]PelhamDucks[/url] by [url=https://www.flickr.com/photos/31175128@N02/]degibox[/url
  2. Hello, fabulous forum! I think I snapped photos of some northern Shovelers and perhaps Greater or lesser Yellowlegs from afar. Can anyone confirm? I think also that the one I snapped flying is aldo a yellowlegs?

  3. Hello, Forum! This guy was spotted in the Buttermilk Falls State Park/ Finger Lakes region of New York. Merlin Photo ID actually pegged it as a Northern Goshawk but I have my doubts.

  4. Actually, I'm looking at Cornell's site now and it appears that the dark shoulder patch makes it a Sanderling and not a Western. Oh, well. Perhaps next trip out west!
  5. Jefferson, Would you happen to know if the bird in these photo is a Western Sandpiper? Thanks! -Peter DSC_2787 by degibox, on Flickr DSC_2787 by degibox, on Flickr DSC_2786 by degibox, on Flickr DSC_2784 by degibox, on Flickr
  6. Ah! I see the black on the parakeets heads that Yellow-chevrons don't have. Thank you so much!
  7. Hello Forum! Thank you for all of your recent help in identifying my first west coast birds. YOU GUYS ROCK!!! I've got a few more that I can't quite place and would appreciate some help. Thanks! 1. The Merlin Bird App keeps pegging this one as a non-breeding or juvenile Black-Bellied Plover. It was larger than nearby sanderlings, smaller than willetts. Can anyone confirm?
