  1. Heard this warbler before I saw it. Did not recognize the call, and managed to get a few shots before it flew off. Seen today May 2, in the Caribbean Island of St.Kitts. It has a black tail at the tip looking from below, and was a bright golden yellow in parts. There seems to be just a hint of streaking. All pictures were cropped. Any ideas?
  2. Is this a Yellow warbler? Seen on Caribbean Island of St.Kitts on February 5. Thanks.
  3. Thanks to everyone for their input. It is much appreciated! I sent the pictures to another bird forum and the three responses were in favor of the Greater Black Backed Gull! We will submit to e-bird as a GBBG and hopefully they will accept it. Once again, many thanks to all.
  4. Thanks for your input everyone. Hi AlexHenry, I don't think that range is so much of an issue, as the GBBG has been spotted in the neighboring island of Antigua a& Barbuda which is next to St.Kitts and Nevis, and also in Guadeloupe and Barbados, both of which are several hundred miles South of St.Kitts Nevis. One was actually spotted in Nevis which is part of the country of St.Kitts-Nevis about 15 years ago, with a full scientific paper done on it, but it was not reported on e-bird. Unfortunately, I only kept a few pictures and deleted the rest as my memory card became full right in the middle of taking the pictures! This identification is important to us as it will be a first sighting. Except for the issue of range, are you confident that is a GBBG? Will try to get more pictures over the next few days, but it was seen in an area which normally has heavy pedestrian traffic, so except for Sundays, it will probably not be in that location for a while. Will keep looking though!
  5. Wow! A Greater-Blacked Backed Gull would be the first sighting for St.Kitts, although they has been seen a recent sighting on the sister island of Nevis. Can anyone else support a GBBG?
  6. Just wondering if this is an Immature Herring Gull, or if not what Gull would this be? Much larger than a laughing Gull. Seen October 9,today on St.Kitts island in the Caribbean
  7. Seen today, in St.Kitts, Caribbean. Is this a Semi-palmated Sandpiper or a Western Sandpiper? Always find them a challenge!!
  8. Is this a juvenile Red-Tailed hawk, or perhaps a Broad-winged Hawk. Seen earlier this week in St.Kitts, in the Caribbean. Red tails are common, and Broad winged are found here but they are rarely seen. What do you think?
  9. Saw this bird in March 2021 on the Caribbean Island of St.Kitts. At the time I did not think too much about it but the more I look at it, the more curious I have become. Seem to recall it was doing a few random movements, and I caught it on camera when it was in a short diving motion. Any ideas?
  10. Is this a Lesser Yellowlegs in different lighting, or a Juvenile Wilson's Pharlorope? Seen early March in the Caribbean in St.Kitts. It is with a few Ruddy Turnstones. Any ideas?
