  1. Shorebirds are another of my banes. Any help with what I'm seeing here? Are these larger birds willets? Am I seeing dunlins? I do see one lone ruddy turnstone on the very far right but it's the only one I;m sure of. LOL
  2. I love ducks, even the white Pekins, but what can anyone tell me about the brown duck?
  3. In one of the other photos I took the ruddy does look quite a bit smaller than the ring-necks surrounding it, but this photo didn't show the stiff brushy tail as well.
  4. A bunch of local birders have been reporting a female American wigeon at a local pond so today I went to look for myself. Found the pond with a fair bit of activity, mostly rind-necked ducks. But I believe these shots are the wigeon in question, just looking for confirmation. And the last picture is a ruddy duck I believe.
  5. Thanks everyone! My sister and I had pretty much decided on an Eastern Wood-Pewee but really wanted some confirmation
  6. Small bird seen this morning in NE Florida. Sorry I could not get better photos. I've been trying to ID but have not figured it out yet. Anyone have ideas?
  7. I came here today for the first time in a long time, but kept getting warnings from FireFox that the site was not secure and the certificate had expired - with the usual "proceed at your own risk"
  8. are these laughing gulls? Seen today in NE Florida, and were flying near a number of obvious laughing gulls with their black-headed winter plumage, but these looked a little "different" to me.
  9. Saw this duck yesterday in Jacksonville, FL. Has me confused as it seems to have a ski jump bill like a canvasback, but was hanging around in a small pond with a bunch of muscovy ducks which seems like an unlikely habitat.
  10. Thanks. The birds were so small which was why I had thought lesser, but the bill looked long to be also - just the birds didn't look big enough to be greaters, hence my confusion. 😁

  12. How funny. Certainly laughing gulls are common around here. But funny as over the years I've seen probably multiple thousand laughing gulls yet never seen any with plumage even remotely like this - and then to see nearly 50 all with identical plumage over the course of two days seems so bizarre
