  1. Wow, I really missed this one. Thanks. I saw a bunch of of GCKIs there yesterday, but this one just didn't register with me.
  2. This morning in Jones Beach, NY. It has dark legs, orange feet, pale undersides, black crown, and a prominent supercilium. I thought maybe immature Blackpoll but the suepercilium looks too large.
  3. Thanks, I would have expected the yellow on a PIWA's throat to extend farther down the front to the belly. This one looks like the breast is mostly white but the foliage might be fooling me..
  4. It doesn't have a black throat and doesn't look very green, but given the yellow head and white undersides, I don't know what it could be except an immature female Black-throated Green Warbler. Seen this morning in Jones Beach, NY.
  5. Is this a female Common Yellowthroat? One of many small birds hopping around Jones Beach NY this morning.
  6. Thanks, I looked at allaboutbirds and I have The Warbler Guide by Stephenson and Whittle but the differences can be pretty subtle in the fall, particularly when you can't see all the field marks. I'm also struggling with some of the local sandpipers.
  7. I took this photo 4 years ago this month in Oceanside NY. I think I misidentified it. Is it a Palm Warbler. I note the white tail spots and what looks like yellow undertail coverts.
  8. I saw these birds about 10 minutes apart this afternoon in Lido Beach NY. Unfortunately, the photo of the bird with the leafy background isn't any help regarding wing bars but I'm guessing it is an Eastern Wood-pewee (peaked head). I'm guessing the bird with the blue background is a Traill's Flycatcher (I didn't hear it).
  9. That's all I have. FWIW, I saw Traill's in this area last August (2020). Willows are reported much more frequently than Alders although Alders are seen and heard here.
  10. This rather blurry view shows the head from the side.
  11. I saw this bird this morning in Lido Beach NY. I note the wing bars, length of tail, and and fairly heavy streaks on breast. Is it an Eastern Wood-pewee? I didn't think Traill's have streaks that heavy.
  12. I'm inclined to agree but I am no expert.
