  1. Hello wonderful forum! This little guy was spotted in Letchworth State Park in Western New York Last week.
  2. Hi, forum! I was in Niagra Falls, Ontario, Canada last week and saw a bunch of these guys flying around. Not sure if they're Northern Roughwing,, Bank or Cliff Swallows. Thanks!!!
  3. Hello, forum! I spotted this Warbler in Jamaica Bay wildlife Preserve in Queens, NYC over the weekend. I was able to fire off these few shots before it disappeared. I'm hoping there's enough marking's present for someone to tell me what it is. Thanks! -Peter
  4. Hi, Forum! Spotted this little guy in Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge this morning. My Merlin Bird ID app says this is a Spotted Sandpiper. Can anyone confirm? I
  5. 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], on Flickr [url=https://flic.kr/p/2ktmDVh][img]https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50849046326_ab8eeaa404_o.jpg[/img][/url][url=https://flic.kr/p/2ktmDVh]PelhamDucks-2[/url] by [url=https://www.flickr.com/photos/31175128@N02/]degibox[/url], on Flickr [url=https://flic.kr/p/2ktmDVH][img]https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50849046351_60422ded99_o.jpg[/img][/url][url=https://flic.kr/p/2ktmDVH]PelhamDucks-4[/url] by [url=https://www.flickr.com/photos/31175128@N02/]degibox[/url], on Flickr [url=https://flic.kr/p/2ktmDVT][img]https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50849046361_d11116da9d_o.jpg[/img][/url][url=https://flic.kr/p/2ktmDVT]PelhamDucks-3[/url] by [url=https://www.flickr.com/photos/31175128@N02/]degibox[/url], on Flickr [url=https://flic.kr/p/2ktmDV2][img]https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50849046311_6009c5a1bd_o.jpg[/img][/url][url=https://flic.kr/p/2ktmDV2]PelhamDucks-5[/url] by [url=https://www.flickr.com/photos/31175128@N02/]degibox[/url], on Flickr [url=https://flic.kr/p/2ktmDW9][img]https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50849046376_9f17d2106a_o.jpg[/img][/url][url=https://flic.kr/p/2ktmDW9]PelhamDucks-6[/url] by [url=https://www.flickr.com/photos/31175128@N02/]degibox[/url], on Flickr uuhhh what happened ?
  6. 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
  7. 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.

  8. 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!
  9. 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
  10. Ah! I see the black on the parakeets heads that Yellow-chevrons don't have. Thank you so much!
  11. 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.

  12. 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
