  1. Forgot to add - taken Sunday May 2, 2021 (Montezuma NWR NY)
  2. I'm thinking Willow Flycatcher, but not sure. Appreciate any help. DSC_4717_Trim_Trim_Trim.mp4
  3. I'm really bad at calls/songs, this was recorded May 2, 2021 at Montezuma NWR (central NY). DSC_4726_Trim.mp4
  4. Did you mean Tricolored or LITTLE Blue Heron? This is definitely not a Great Blue Heron, but the leg color is more suited to Little Blue Heron. I think I can see a slight white crest on the bird, which would indicate Tricolored. May want to wait on more replies.
  5. Appears to be a Tricolored Heron, GBH would have a substantial crest feather and have a much grayer neck & head.
  6. Only seen from underneath, fairly sure it's a Purple Finch (no striping underneath). Taken May 1, 2021 along Lake Ontario Shore in central NYS.
  7. According to Sibley's Common (Eurasian) Snipe have white bars under the wings. I don't think they can be ID'd unless flying. Most older books still list Wilson's Snipe as "Common Snipe", so maybe it's an outdated reference you had?
  8. Thanks all, didn't have any pics showing tops of the wings. Guess this might be a good reason that Thayer's isn't a separate species anymore?
  9. Taken in Geneva NY 2/4/21. Was kind enough to fly away from large flock of mixed gulls for a photo op.
  10. Taken today (2/34/21) in Geneva NY with a large group of Herring & Great Black-back Gulls. Appears too dark for a Herring Gull (compare to Herring Gull in 1st photo).
  11. Thanks, "Year Bird", of course it's only 2 weeks in. ?
  12. Poor quality pic of a small raptor, tail seems to indicate Sharp-shinned?
  13. 2 swan pics taken in central New York on 1/14/21 (Savannah NY). Normally only Mute & Tundra are found this time of year, but Trumpeter have been reported. Not positive if both of these are Tundra.
  14. From central NY (Finger Lakes region) 1/8/21, sorry for image quality, 1st bird (2 pics) was very far/poor lighting. First bird was larger than 2nd bird (on wire). Both Cooper's?
  15. Found in a large flock of Common Redpolls, Am Goldfinch, Am Tree Sparrows, House Finches.
  16. Took some distant pics of a couple loons on Lake Ontario today (Central New York, between Rochester & Syracuse). I think the 1st pic is Red-throated and 2nd is Common. Thanks for any help. (Red-throated are the more frequent in the Winter).
