  1. Greetings, Yesterday at Fort Desoto Park, Florida, I saw these two small terns side-by-side within a huge flock of royal terns. Image 1 appears to be a common tern, due to the black wingtips, grayer belly (kind of hard to tell by the pic), and longer beak. Image 2 appears to be a forster tern due to the lighter wingtips and shorter beak. If I'm correct, is it normal for the two to flock? Common terns are quite uncommon (ironic) in Florida; thus, I'm not used to seeing them.
  2. Hello, Today I visited a bridge in central Florida where barn swallows and cliff swallows are known to roost; however rarely, cave swallows are seen here too. Today I saw this swallow (Image 1) which I believe is a cave swallow. Note the orange forehead and paler cheeks. Compare it to image 2 which I am for sure is a cliff swallow (Note the darker cheeks and paler forehead). The strangest part was both were landing on the same nest. Thanks for the help!
  3. Upon Recollection the top one might be a "Krider's" Red tailed hawk due to the lighter coloration while the bottom might just be a juvenile red-tailed.
  4. Greetings, This photo was taken on August 8, 2017. Upon looking at the photo again many years later, I did not even notice the second raptor! I am assuming the top bird is a Short-tailed hawk (Correct me if I'm wrong); however, the bottom one is giving me trouble. I want to say it's a dark morph short tailed, but its barred belly is giving me trouble.
  5. Today I saw this Sandpiper in Port Charlotte, Florida when looking for a white-rumped sandpiper. I am assuming it is a western sandpiper; however, I am just posting this here to be certain. Thanks (I am referring to the bird in focus in the picture, not the least sandpiper)
  6. Hello, 1. I have taken pictures of this migrating thrush along the west coast of Florida. However, I cannot decide if its a gray-cheeked thrush or a swainson's thrush. The buffiness makes me think swainson's but the eye ring looks a bit faint, so it may be a gray-cheeked. If anyone could help that would be great! 2. Not as good of a photo, but I found this photo taken last October during fall migration in Central Florida. I'm pretty sure this one is a swainson's because its eyering is pretty distinct. 3. I'm 90% Sure this one is a Gray Cheeked. Dull Color, Basically no eye ring. However, if I'm wrong please do tell. Thanks!
  7. Hello, For the longest time, I assumed this picture I took at dry tortugas FL last year was a female common yellowthroat; however, upon second look its presence of an eyering and beak are different. I have a really good shot of it. Can someone help me ID this bird? Thanks!
  8. Thanks Jefferson for all your help and thanks everyone for the compliments. It means alot!
  9. Thanks so much for at least being able to identify one of them! I'll keep that in mind if I see one again.
  10. Hello, Photo (A) I am from south Florida, and I saw this nightjar hanging out at the base of the forest on December 28th. I an sure it is not a common nighthawk, but is it either a chuck's will-widow or a eastern whip-poor-will? Photo (B) I saw this nightjar in a bunch of mangroves by the water in april a few years ago. Any idea which one it is? Thanks for your help guys! It means alot to me.
  11. Greetings, this is my first post here! Today I went birding at a scrubby flatwood in Central Florida, and I saw this bird hanging out with a flock of pine warblers in a low pine tree. I am having a hard time identifying it. However, the only two warblers I know with yellow "eyebrows" in Florida are the super common palm warbler and the rare kentucky warbler. However, we usually never see palm warlbers in breeding plumage, and this bird doesn't seem to have more stripes on the belly like a palm warbler. Can someone help me ID this warbler please?
