  1. Yeah, I posted in the birds outside North America forum as well, but since gwte is a North American bird too, I was hoping I could get a confirmation from this forum since there’s a little more traffic. If it’s not a gwte though, I guessed wrong, and the North American birds forum isn’t going to be much help lol. Thanks anyway! 

  2. I posted this in the Birds Outside North America forum, but I thought I might post it here too just in case, since I believe this might be a green-winged teal. Let me know if that’s a problem! 

    I saw this bird the other day in a group of eastern spot-billed ducks. It was much smaller, and the coloration and the head shape in addition to the size make me think green-winged teal. Spotted in central Japan.

  3. Hi, long time listener first time poster for the non-NA bird forum! I saw this duck in central Japan yesterday with a group of eastern spot-billed ducks. This one was the only non-spot-billed in the flock, and it was much smaller and slimmer. My guess is a green-winged teal based on the coloration and how the bill looks in the low-quality photos I managed to get. What do you guys think?

  4. Hi all, it's been a while! I heard this bird calling today in a suburban area in southern KY. There were about three of them in the treetops. I couldn't get a great look at them, but they looked to be grayish with lighter bellies, smaller than a mockingbird but larger than a titmouse. They were flying from tree to tree and chattering at each other. They could have been a color besides gray, but it was cloudy today so I'm really not sure. Thanks!

  5. I saw this sandpiper in central KY last summer. I think I posted it then, but the other sandpipers took the attention and I don't think this guy was ever decided on, so I'll repost him separately. Baird's maybe? Or Spotted? I think Baird's had been mentioned, but that would be a rarity here. I included the original and a brightened version.
