  1. I chased the Variegated Flycatcher in Michigan yesterday which got me thinking about my previous Variegated sightings from Brazil and wondering if I identified them correctly https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/91498351 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/91463351 My thinking is that the bill size/shape and streaking favor Variegated instead of Piratic, but I don't have a lot of confidence in that. Any thoughts on these would be appreciated!
  2. The more I look at it, Gull-billed seems more and more feasible. Would be great to get some feedback from a couple others, as it would be the 3rd county record (according to eBird).
  3. Well I figured Gull-bill would be ruled out based on the bill being too long and slender, but maybe it's within the range of what could be expected? I've seen a few gull-billed terns, but not a lot, so I'm not real experienced with them.
  4. I'm a little puzzled by this tern I had fly over in Palm Coast, Florida today (May 8). Common and Forster's seem like possible candidates, both somewhat uncommon here, it seems. What's confusing is the bird seems to be an adult but with a dark bill, which seems to rule out both options. Can Sandwich Tern lack the pale tip?
  5. It was suggested to me that these birds could be White-ringed Flycatchers based on the white connecting behind the head, but I wanted some additional opinions since Social flycatcher seems to have some variation that could be confusing in distinguishing the two species. Any thoughts? Taken in Manzanillo (south of Limon), Costa Rica a couple weeks ago.
  6. Here's a shot from March 6, in the town of La Fortuna, Costa Rica, about 270 m elevation. The closest thing I can come to is Blue-black Grosbeak, but that doesn't feel quite right. Any thoughts?
  7. Attached are a few shots that I'm having difficulty identifying. All taken in March and either around Harare or Masvingo in Zimbabwe. Any thoughts appreciated!
  8. I always found the massive list of categories confusing. The fewer the better. I like the way it is now.
