  1. Douglas Co, CO today Larger than a peep, upright posture, yellowish legs. Other feedback suggested Least Sandpiper but the bird didn't seem that small.
  2. Great, thanks! I thought it might be, but had it in my head that phalaropes were much smaller compared to yellowlegs. Was pretty sure about the Greater, but thanks for the confirmation!
  3. Thanks! Here's a cropped photo of the Pectoral with a lighter colored bird that seems to be different.
  4. The more rusty colored one, right? So the lighter colored birds are also Greater Yellowlegs?
  5. Adams Co, CO last week. I wanted to confirm that most are Greater Yellowlegs and there seems to be a couple that are not, ID would be appreciated. I don't see shorebirds often enough to ID at a distance. Thanks!
  6. ID from another source confirms Nashville Warbler
  7. Lake McBride, Iowa last week. Checked the undertail plates in my warbler guide, my guess is Wilson's with what appears to be a mostly yellow head.
  8. Adams Co, CO today I have no trouble IDing them in flight, or year 3-5 Bald, but perched confuses me for years 1-2. Is this a subadult Golden or Bald Eagle? Any tips on IDing perched eagles greatly appreciated!
  9. I just listened to Common Yellowthroat calls, definitely what it was, a much harsher chip sound than the others. Thanks again for your help!
  10. Nope, unfortunately. I think that makes more sense, habitat-wise, although it was close to the river, but not along the banks. Thanks for your help!
  11. Arapahoe Co, CO today There's been a Palm Warbler in the area, and this bird was foraging beneath rabbit brush so that's what I assumed it was. Unfortunately, I couldn't get good photos, but I think it's not the correct ID. Could it be an Orange-crowned? I've always seen them in trees, not brush, but maybe so late in the year it has different habits.
  12. Thanks! And thanks for the id tips, I've only see one of them before.
  13. Adams Co, CO today I assumed this was a Song Sparrow, I saw many of them today, but when reviewing photos I thought maybe it was a Swamp Sparrow instead. Black streaks on back, more colorful overall. Help is greatly appreciated!
  14. I was a new birder. I just took as many photos as I could and sorted it all out later. Tons of birds every time a whale breached, just fantastic! BTW, it's really hard to take photos of birds flying around when you're bobbing on a boat, lol.
