  1. Thanks for the help. I didn't think of Dowitcher for the larger bird'
  2. Got these pics today and i am just unsure of ID for either. The peep could be a least or semi-palmated, and I'm not sure about the larger bird, maybe willet?
  3. Thanks akandula. That was my tendency for exactly the reasons you mentioned, but I doubted it only because it came up as a rarity on eBird. I'll go ahead and make the change.
  4. I saw this bird in Maine today and can't decide if it is a Common Tern or a Forster's and could use some help.
  5. Got these pics yesterday. I think I have it figured out, but thought I'd run them by here to be sure. I was watching a Greater Yellowlegs when it was joined by 2 Lesser. The Greater was not happy with the newcomers and there was a short dustup but then they settled down and co-existed. I think this is Lesser One on right is Greater, and other 2 Lesser Greater on left, Lesser on right
  6. I got this distant pic (quite cropped) on a rainy day. I just can't quite get a handle on this bird. I'm leaning towards Solitary Sandpiper. There were other shorebirds around it including Killdeer, Greater Yellowlegs, a very distinct Solitary Sandpiper, a pectoral sandpiper and leasts. The yellowish legs and clear breast are making think Solitary, though it does not have a distinct eye-ring.
  7. Thanks all. I had asked a couple of birders here, and they also agreed it was Red-eyed. The yellow color is what fooled me.
  8. I saw this bird yesterday. In the field it was strikingly yellow, making me first think of a warbler on initial glance. I realized it was vireo and snapped a couple of shots. I ID'd the bird as a Philadelphia, but got a comment on FB that it is a red eyed due to the "Gray crown and eyeline markings". A Philadelphia has both of those as well, so I am still leaning towards that, but wonder what folks here think.
  9. Taken today 7/28. Very distant birds, so pic is quite cropped and not as crisp as I would like. There were some least sandpipers in this group and one pectoral that I couldn't get a pic of but saw with the scope. This bird I think might be a semi-palmated sandpiper, but I am often wrong with shorebirds.
  10. Thanks akiley. I knew it didn't look quite right for a Herring gull, but I couldn't figure out what it was. I saw immature Black-legged Kittiwakes at the Cape a couple years ago, but they were immature and easy to spot due to the M pattern. Didn't know what to look for in an adult.
  11. Not sure enough about gulls to call this one. Looks like maybe a Herring gull, but I don't see a red mark on the bill. Maybe just the photo?
  12. Duh, i knew that but had Scaup on my brain. Don't think Ive seen Ring Necked Duck reputed here, so it wasn't on my radar. Thanks for catkin that millipede.
