  1. Spotted this very large Gull today, Dec 1, in the Caribbean Island of St.Kitts. Large grey back. Looking for confirmation that it is a Herring Gull, winter plumage? Thanks.
  2. Seen on the Caribbean Island of St.Kitts on 26 November 2022. The first looks like a possible Curlew Sandpiper, but did not see color of legs. However, when it flew off it had a lot of white in the tail section, but not sure if rump or tail. The other one kept it's tail very high while feeding, which I have not see a Lesser Yellowlegs do before, but looks like this is still a Lesser Yellowlegs? First two pictures are of the possible Curlew, and the other three are of the likely Lesser Yellowlegs.
  3. Three birds in a usually empty pond. Initially I thought they may be blue-winged teals, but on reflection, they look more like a Lesser Scaups. Seen in St.Kitts in the Caribbean on Sunday, November 13. What do you think?
  4. Seen today, Nov 12 on Caribbean island of St.Kitts. Struggled to get a good picture before it took off. Would it be a Northern Parula, or something else? Apology for poor quality shots.
  5. Trying to tie up loose ends for the Big Day submission. This bird was seen today, Oct. 8 in St.Kitts in the Caribbean. Can anyone help?
  6. Medium sized Tern flying close to shore. Long thin black bill and broad tail which did not seem to have much of a fork. Did not observe a yellow tip on bill so unlikely a Sandwich Tern. Is it a Common Tern? On the Caribbean Island of St.Kitts, today October 1st.
  7. On Monday, September 19, traveled to the end of the island in St. Kitts in the Caribbean, and photographed a Tern obtaining a couple of o.k. pictures. Initially I thought it may have been another sighting of the Gull-billed Tern which was seen a few days earlier in another location in St.Kitts, but a closer look at the pictures, I am wondering if this may be a Forster's Tern. Any thoughts on which tern this really is?
  8. Seen yesterday, September 17, on Caribbean Island of St.Kitts, just prior to Tropical Storm passage. What is this? A Gull-billed Tern was reported in that exact area a few weeks ago. Long, wide wings. mark behind eye, shallow forked tail. Pictures not greatest, but all I have!
