  1. Semipalmated? Least? Or something else? Today, 8/17 in Lehigh county, PA. Thanks.
  2. I 'm thinking bird on right is Least Sandpiper, and the one on the left might be Least also? Is that correct? Today, 8/13, in Northampton county, PA. Thanks.
  3. Ok, thanks - I'll leave as Accipiter sp.
  4. I think this is Sharp-shinned Hawk? Can any confirm, or is it something else? Today, 8/7, in Lehigh county, PA. Thanks.
  5. Saw this sandpiper today, 8/7 in Lehigh county, PA. Leaning toward immature Spotted, but totally not sure? Thanks.
  6. Juvie Tree, or Bank, or something else? Today, 7/29 in Northampton county, PA. Thanks!
  7. I think you're right - this must be a released/escaped bird. Thanks.
  8. I've been hearing this off and on for about a week. I think it might be Northern Bobwhite, but neither BirdNET nor Merlin will ID it as anything at all. Maybe it's not even a bird? The habitat is a small tree-line behind my house (not my property) in a suburban setting in Lehigh county, PA. What do you think it is? Bobwhite is pretty rare in PA these days. Thanks! birdnet_mobile_8593770533_recording_4049 6_14.wav
  9. Great, thanks The Bird Nuts. I didn't even notice the streaking on the undertail coverts till you mentioned it!
  10. Both (Indigo Bunting and Blue Grosbeak) were in area. Or something else? Today, 6/12 in Lehigh county, PA. Thanks!
  11. Juvie? Today, 6/8 in Lehigh county, PA. Thanks.
  12. Thanks - there was another White-rumped Sandpiper there, so it's likely this might be one also.
  13. Today, 6/3, at a flooded field in Northampton county, PA. Thanks!
  14. Bad but hopefully improving Sandpiper Identifier. I think this might me White-rumped Sandpiper? Anyone agree? Today, 6/3 in flooded fields in Northampton county, PA. Thanks!
  15. Just to update here - Another egg was laid for a total of 5. Shortly thereafter, the male started to become intolerant of the "2nd" female, and within a few days she disappeared. I have not seen her in the yard since. All the eggs hatched, and the little ones fledged early yesterday (Wed, 5/25), which happens to be my birthday! That's the 2nd time throughout the years that the first clutch of Bluebirds has fledged right on my birthday.
  16. Bumping this once to see if there are any additional thoughts/opinions. Thanks.
  17. I heard what I thought was Red-eyed Vireo singing and decided to record it. To my surprise, the Merlin app said Philadelphia was singing. I must admit, I didn't even know what Philadelphia Vireo sounded like when I recorded this sample. I would normally dismiss this as a misidentification by Merlin, except that another well known local "birding-by-ear expert" reported Philadelphia Vireo at the exact same location about a half hour earlier. Philadelphia Vireo is apparently very rare in eastern PA in the spring. My question is, does anyone think Philadelphia Vireo is really singing in this recording, and what is the best way to distinguish it's song from Red-eyed Vireo? From yesterday, 5/14, in Lehigh County, PA. Thanks! 2022-05-14 06_29.wav
  18. Thanks again, everyone! There's one more egg in the nest and all 3 are hanging together. I'll try to get a pic of all 3 together and I'll post it here.
  19. Thank You, meghann! That's a great information, and I'm glad you found and posted the link. So interesting. I will re here as the season progresses and let you know how things turn out. And if the "family" stays together for round 2!
