  1. I saw 4 Godwits this morning at Jones Beach, NY on the bay side (near the Coast Guard station). Are these Marbled or Hudsonians? http://www.kjkahn.com/birds_misc/godwit-01c.jpg http://www.kjkahn.com/birds_misc/godwit-02c.jpg http://www.kjkahn.com/birds_misc/godwit-03c.jpg
  2. Thanks, I hadn't seen one before (or since) and I'm really sorry I didn't get a better photo.
  3. I only had a few seconds to shoot this bird partially obscured by foliage and didn't get a well-focused shot. It was taken on July 24th in Oceanside, New York. I thought it might be a (Yellow-bellied?) Flycatcher but it doesn't really match any photos I've seen. Can anyone ID it? http://www.kjkahn.com/birds_misc/flycatcher-01hd.jpg
  4. Thanks, There is a large colony, several hundred, of Common Terns nesting there and it has attracted a few terns of other species, including Gull-billed, Least, Royal, Arctic, and Sandwich (photographed). I have failed to spot any of them but did see this Roseate 23 days earlier, on June. 6. I was confused by the plumage of the later one. Roseate Tern I now see how similar they are, except for the molting.
  5. Sorry, I forgot to mention that it was shot at the Oceanside Marine Nature Study Area in Oceanside NY. It is mostly a salt marsh but the bird was seen at the north edge of the preserve in the shrubbery of an adjacent house in a typical suburban area.
  6. I only saw this bird for a few seconds and unfortunately couldn't get good focus (except on foliage in the foreground). I think it is a flycatcher but I looked through Sibley and couldn't find one that has so much yellow on the undersides. Is it too blurred to identify? Flycatcher
  7. I shot this (juvenile?) tern at Lido Beach NY on June 29th. I need help identifying the species. Tern
