  1. Thanks Seanbirds and hbvol50. Song Sparrows are common here but they have enough variation to keep me guessing. Field Sparrow is a lifer for me.
  2. I saw these 2 sparrows together on the ground this morning at Jones Beach State Park, NY. The first one was smaller with a pinkish bill, unstreaked breast, and wing bars. I assume it is a Field Sparrow. I think the second one, which flew up onto a fence, is a Song Sparrow, although it doe sn't appear to have the large spot usually seen on the breast.
  3. Thanks, There are plenty of Goldfinches coming through but the EVGR was an infrequent visitor.
  4. When I saw this Merlin at Jones Beach NY this morning, I was afraid that its prey was a male Evening Grosbeak that has been delighting birders for 11 days. Looking at the photo, I think it might be an American Goldfinch, large numbers of which have been migrating through.
  5. Thanks, I thought it was immature because it seemed so pale underneath but perhaps I was fooled by the poor light.
  6. Thanks Avery and Bird Nuts, Not a picture worth saving.
  7. Thanks Avery and Bird Nuts, Lifer for me.
  8. This bird of prey flew overhead this morning at Jones Beach, NY. It made 3 large circles with its tail spread as seen here and its wings held quite flat. Is it an immature Cooper's Hawk? Sorry for the poor photo.
  9. This bird was feeding in the grass with a group of White-throated Sparrows this morning in Jones Beach NY. The wings appeared to be rustier and the crown stripes don't seem to be right for a WTSP. Is it a Swamp Sparrow?
  10. Thanks for the confirmation. Is it an adult female? Regarding the code, carolinabirdclub.org explains, "The “last letter” approach is also used in some four-word names. For example, Black-throated Green Warbler is BTNW and Black-throated Gray Warbler is BTYW, using the last letter of the distinguishing word."
  11. This is a new one for me, seen this morning in Lido Beach NY. Is it an adult female BTNW?
  12. Is this a COYE? I sort of expected a sharper line between the yellow throat and brown head. This afternoon in Lido Beach NY.
  13. Thanks BirdNrd and Bird Nuts, This is a lifer for me.
