  1. 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? Thanks, everyone! -Peter Shorebirds and Ducks 1 by degibox, on Flickr Shorebirds and ducks 2 by degibox, on Flickr Shorebirds and ducks 3 by degibox, on Flickr shorebirds and ducks 4 by degibox, on Flickr Flying shorebird 1 by degibox, on Flickr Flying shorebird 2 by degibox, on Flickr Flying shorebird 3 by degibox, on Flickr
  2. 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. Thanks, all! DSC_7175-2 by degibox, on Flickr DSC_7176-3 by degibox, on Flickr DSC_7177-4 by degibox, on Flickr DSC_7174-1 by degibox, on Flickr
  3. 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!
  4. 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
  5. Ah! I see the black on the parakeets heads that Yellow-chevrons don't have. Thank you so much!
  6. 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? DSC_2603 by degibox, on Flickr DSC_2587 by degibox, on Flickr 2. I'm really hoping to have captured one of the local feral parrot species of the area and not just a couple of escape pets. The yellow on the side points to Chevron. Can anyone confirm? DSC_2852 by degibox, on Flickr DSC_2853 by degibox, on Flickr DSC_2861 by degibox, on Flickr 4. Lesser Yellow-legs??? DSC_2844 by degibox, on Flickr 5. For this last set I'm hoping I've captured the West Coast seagull trifecta of California Gull, Western Gull, and Heerman's Gull. Western seems certain. Are there any California's in there? The one in the center of of the last pick was IDed as Heerman's by Merlin Bird ID but also marked as Rare. Would love human confirmation. A.

  7. Hey, everyone. My sincerest apologies on the double post. What I thought I had done was gone into the original post and changed the image from the original to the one I adjusted the exposure on. Sorry for the confusion. I didn't realize it split it two

  11. Hello, Forum! Yesterday I took my very first birding outing on the West Coast in Hansen's Dam Park in Los Angeles. I had some trouble ID-ing the birds in the following photos. As always, your help is greatly appreciated. One of them (the last photo) nay very well be a feral pet. Thanks, all! 1. Can't tell if this first bird is a Ruby-crowned Kinglet or a Hutton's Vireo 1-a by degibox, on Flickr 1-b by degibox, on Flickr 2. Immature White-crowned Sparrow? Or something else? 2a by degibox, on Flickr 2b by degibox, on Flickr 3. Pretty sure this is a Yellow-Rumped Warbler, but just double checking 3 by degibox, on Flickr 4. These pictures are bad and this'll be tough. 4a by degibox, on Flickr 4b by degibox, on Flickr 5. What hawk is this? 5 by degibox, on Flickr 6. Feral pet? 6 by degibox, on Flickr
  12. Going over last year's checklists and this photo is from November in Jamaica Bay, Queens, NYC. Merlin Bird ID pegged it as a Solitary first and Yellow-legs second, saying that both were rare sightings for that time of year. Thanks for your input, forum! Woodis by degibox, on Flickr
  13. Thank you for this information. These birds were in NYC! 🙂
  14. I just read Greater generally stick to saltwater and Lesser to freshwater. Can anyone confirm? That would make these Greater for sure.
  15. @Phalarope713 Thanks! Much appreciated. Unfortunately I couln;'t get any closer,
  16. Hello, Forum and Happy New Year. It was a gloomy weekend in NYC and I had a lot of trouble identifying a large number of ducks spotted off Pelham Bay in the bronx. I want to say that most of the birds in these photos are Scaups, but I'm not sure. If they are, then of course I'd love to know if anyone can tell me if they're Greater or Lesser. There's a couple other random ducks in these photos that I think are Gadwalls or American Blacks, and a couple Red Breasted Mergansers Any and all help would be greatly appreciated and I thank you!

  17. Thanks....although, I'm not actually new here! I haven't contacted an admin yet, but it looks like my old account was deleted due to inactivity? Is this a thing? Hadn't been on here in maybe more than a year.
