  1. Birding with 6 others, comparing this smaller, light headed loon with many Common Loons it was mixed in with. Was diving constantly. Merlin called a Pacific Loon as well as other birders, but wanted to get thoughts from this group as well. Posting the best shot from a long distance and also a shot showing the suspected loon alongside a Common Loon from an even further distance! This was at East Fork Lake, South Beach east of Cincinnati, OH
  2. Thanks, knowing Clay was rare for the area I leaned towards Chipping.
  3. Saw a small flock of these sparrows on Hilton Head Island at the Audubon Newhall Preserve at the entrance. Merlin comes up with Clay Colored Sparrow but thought maybe Chipping as well but there was not a distinctive cap. Thoughts? This was the best shot although that little twig got in the way of the top of his head.
  4. Saw this flock at Ellis Lake Wetlands in Butler County, Ohio yesterday. Some folks think a mix of Least Sandpipers and Semipalmated Plovers so wanted additional opinions.
  5. Thanks! He was quite cooperative! Thanks!
  6. Wanted to double check this. Merlin came up with Solitary Sandpiper. Seen on muddy pond bed in Mason, OH today.
  7. Looking for an ID for a friend in California. She thought Western Grebe but I was leaning more towards Eared or Horned. Thoughts?
  8. I agree, and another shot I got of an adult Black Backed and comparing the two, this one is a bit smaller as well, so I'll go with Herring. Thanks!
  9. Wondering if this is an immature Great Black-backed Gull Sarasota, FL
  10. Juvenile females evidently don’t have the large white patch
