  1. Thanks, I should have realized that the black eyepatch of an immature Roseate extends back to the nape.
  2. When I saw this bird at Oceanside NY yesterday, I thought it was a Forster's Tern but I think the wingtips are too dark for a Forster's Tern. Is it a Roseate Tern (or even a Common Tern)?
  3. Thanks, Uncharacteristically, it was right next to the road, sitting in the grass when I first saw it. I thought it might be injured. The grassy area is near the bay and the BBPLs I see there are usually out on a sandbar in the bay. I've never gotten this close to one before.
  4. I saw this bird this morning at Jones Beach, NY. Is it a non-breeding Black-bellied Plover?
  5. I didn't get a good look at it flying. It flew off low to the ground and landed farther away.
  6. Thanks, it was the spots that made me think it was a Solitary.
  7. Thanks, Although I have been seeing Merlins for a week or so, this is the first Cooper's I've seen this fall. Looking through my collection, I see that I first saw one last fall on Sept. 22 in the same area and saw them into December. I still haven't seen an adult.
  8. When I saw this bird chasing a flock of Rock Pigeons this afternoon at Jones Beach NY, I thought it was probably a Merlin. After looking at it on my computer, I think it might be an immature Cooper's Hawk. Is it?
  9. Thanks, The only other time I saw (or at least identified) this species was in a larger pond in the same park in May, 2018.
  10. I saw this bird bobbing in the weeds at the shallow end of an artificial pond at Hempstead Lake State Park, NY, this morning. Unfortunately, I didn't get a good look at its legs. Is it a Solitary Sandpiper?
  11. I saw this flycatcher this morning at Jones Beach, NY. Is it an Eastern Wood-pewee? I didn't hear it so I can't help with the call.
  12. I saw this bird this morning in a pond at Jones Beach NY. I didn't think it was a Sanderling and assumed it was a Semipalmated or White-rumped Sandpiper but I need help. Thanks.
