  1. OK, I should have asked if it was female (of any age) or a juvenile male.
  2. Last Thursday, July 2, I posted 2 photos of what turned out to be a female House Finch. I took this photo this morning in the same place, Lido Beach, NY and it looks quite similar, but it is much buffier. Is it a female or juvenile House Finch? The early morning light, 6:55 a.m., might have caused a yellowish color cast.
  3. Aah, thanks again. I saw a male House Finch in the area but didn't think of it when I saw this.
  4. This bird, seen in Lido Beach NY this morning, isn't showing much in the way of head markings. Is it a Song Sparrow, maybe juvenile?
  5. Thanks, I just listened to a Carolina Wren on All About Birds and it sounds like what I heard. I previously rejected Carolina Wren because I thought it looked too pale underneath and I couldn't see much of the back. This is a new bird for me.
  6. I took this photo this morning in Lido Beach NY. Is it a House Wren? I wouldn't expect it to be perching like this high up in a tree but I really don't know. It had a rather loud 3-note call that didn't match what I found online. It reminded me more of a Cardinal's call. Except for the eyebrow, I might have thought it was a Mockingbird.
  7. Thanks, I just listened to the calls on allaboutbirds and if I heard anything, it was a Willow. I also looked at sightings reports on eBird and Willows are common in this area; whereas Alders are not. I think it was probably a Willow but I'll try to pay more attention to the call next time.
  8. Thanks, I'm sorry I couldn't see the front. It was on the other side of a fence.
  9. Is this an Eastern Wood-Pewee? Seen today in Point Lookout NY.
  10. Thanks, I should have realized that the black eyepatch of an immature Roseate extends back to the nape.
  11. 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)?
  12. 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.
  13. I saw this bird this morning at Jones Beach, NY. Is it a non-breeding Black-bellied Plover?
  14. I didn't get a good look at it flying. It flew off low to the ground and landed farther away.
