  1. Juvenile Snowy? What distinguishes this from a Little Blue Heron?
  2. Bold eye-ring, pinkish bill, think this is a Field Sparrow? (Only a guess, looks better for Chipping?)
  3. I believe it's a blend of white (albino) and normal coloration of a Peahen (Common Peafowl). Peacocks are (or were) countable in some Southern Florida areas, and maybe in Southern CA? Pretty much anywhere else they are considered escaped domestic fowl.
  4. Very distant & out-of-focus pic, think there is a Ring-necked Duck on the right & Gadwall on the left? (Ignore all the Coots & Pied-billed Grebes). Thanks.
  5. Think the 2 on the left are both Lesser? (far right Greater Yellowlegs)?
  6. First glance thought a Tree Swallow, but not sure what it is?
  7. Think first 2 pics Warbling Vireo? 2nd two pics Wilson's Warbler (faint eye-ring, bi-colored bill, faint trace of black on crown)? Last pic possibly Magnolia?
  8. Could it be a Hairy? Bill looks a little long for Downy?
  9. Side note; Fish Crows seem to be expanding North, getting fairly common in central NY. I would hesitate to ID either American or Fish Crow without hearing them (although Fish Crows are suppose to run slightly smaller than American Crows). The pic below was definitely a Fish Crow by it's call, taken in Seneca Falls NY this Spring.
  10. Was acting like a Common Yellowthroat in a wooded area (Beechwood State Park). Not up on my Fall warblers, thanks for the help.
  11. Wondering if possible to ID these sandpipers and terns (note 2 sandpipers in first pic, one flying & the other on the right).
  12. Either Common or Forster's, either possible at this location? Would expect more gray underneath on a Common Tern?
  13. Okay, next guess: Painted Redstart? I had one North of McAllen a few years ago.
  14. Strikes me as Bewick's due to pale underneath, but I'm more familiar with Northern Carolina Wrens than Bewick's or Mexican subspecies.
  15. Large bird is a Willet, the peeps look like Least Sandpipers, but may have something else in the group pic?
  16. Thanks all, I had ruled out anything else other than Green Heron (of which I had several in the same location, only they were much more cooperative to photograph as you can see here) 🙂
  17. Very distant pics, hoping to confirm ID. Had several in the cattails about 1/4 mile away.
  18. Wondering if it's possible to ID these Dowitchers from these pics. Are they Short or Long-billed & Adult or juvenile? Thanks.
  19. Has 2 smaller terns with a group of Caspian's, not sure if possible to ID from these pics (very distant).
