  1. Wow. Thanks for that. I am going to see if I have any better shots of the solitary bird that will show the bill to advantage.
  2. Is there a reason I got no replies to this post? Help, please.
  3. Solitary feeder in mudflats of old abandoned rice fields at Bear Island Wildlife Management Area, Bennett's Point, SC. This location is in the heart of the ACE Basic between the Edisto and Ashepoo RIvers. Nearby were numerous Ibis, Snowy Egrets, Tricolored Heron & Little Blue Heron feeding in the flats. Photos taken yesterday, Thursday, Feb 25, 2021 at 1450. Sunny, 65 degrees with gentle breezes. The photos of the group of birds flying are not great. But, I am hoping someone can help me. The photos were taken while I was shooting the solitary bird, as they just flashed overhead. About five minutes earlier I had just seen a group of about the same number of Short-billed Dowitchers in a pond across the dike feeding in the shallows. So, any help on these two sets of photos would be appreciated. I am a beginner, so please go easy on me.
  4. Photos taken today (Sunny 50 degrees F wind ENE 15 mph) at Breach Inlet. This is an Atlantic Ocean inlet separating Sullivan's Island from Isle of Palms in SC. These two birds were a little bit separated from a large group of resting birds that included Black Skimmers, Ring-billed Gulls, Laughing Gulls and Forster's Terns. In the inlet were floating/resting Cormorants, and across the inlet on the other side were gulls, terns and Willets. One photo gets a glimpse of the bird's rump. Help, please.
  5. OK. That is helpful. I have definitely photographed Eastern Bluebirds in this location. Thanks.
  6. On June 16, 2019 Sullivan's Island, SC Station 16 adjacent to a small maritime forest on the ocean side of the island, I found this fellow. And, I would like some help identifying him. Thanks, Bobby D
  7. Sorry about that. Location is Murrell's Inlet, SC just inside the jetties. Salt water sand flats and inlet shoreline. Mixed gulls were resting on a sandbar. Bonaparte's gulls were actively feeding in the inlet. Thanks, for all your help. - BD
  8. In the photos I believe there is one Herring Gull, one Sanderling and two Short-billed Dowitchers. If the two birds (in between the size of the Gull and the Sanderling) are not SBD, help me identify them, please. Sorry the photos are not any better.
  9. This is a very small hawk with a prominent long tail that I photographed on July 4th of this year hanging out in the trees beside my home which is on the edge of a salt marsh on the Isle of Palms, SC. I am not an expert birder, so I need some help here. Thanks, Bobby D
  10. Today 12/18/2020 late afternoon 4:30 photographing birds from a dock on a deep salt water tidal creek behind Sullivan's Island SC. This bird just flew into my field of view and I got only this one photograph. Other birds that I observed and photographed included a single Horned Grebe, Ring-billed gulls, Forster's Tern, Brown Pelican, Belted Kingfisher & Oystercatcher and others. The mystery bird has distinctive orange legs, white head and belly with a black chin and ring on his neck.
  11. OK. Here is my photo of a flock of ? Northern Pintail Ducks. What do you think Tony?
  12. A low flying flock of eight ducks (? all females) over a salt water impoundment on the S Tibwin Trail, McClellanville, SC, yesterday 8:40 am. Distinct long necks and pointed wings. White tipped black secondaries with rufous tipped greater secondary coverts. Otherwise not much. I favor (female) Northern Pintail ducks. I have images, but I don't know how to load them onto this forum. Thanks, Bobby D
