  1. I did not hear this bird, seen this morning in Lido Beach NY, but I did hear Willow Flycatchers several times and heard them frequently the past few days. Is there any reason to doubt this is a Willow Flycatcher? It looks rather pale but that is probably due at least partly to the morning sun.                           


  2. This bird, seen this morning in Baldwin NY, looked chunkier to me than the common sparrow species seen here, e.g. House and Song Sparrows. It was foraging with its tail high, almost like a wren. Looking through my guides, I think it looks most like a Lincoln's Sparrow, given the gray face, wide buffy malar, and pale buffy wash on the breast. Is it a LISP?

  3. 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.
