  1. Wow, that's tough! Could only find one; Cory's Shearwater & Wilson's Storm-Petrel
  2. Thanks very much!! The place it was taken is really awesome. It's a rookery that has a platform that people can look down into it & get real closeup views of mating & nesting behavior. This past year both Night Herons, Little Blue Heron, Great Egret, White Ibis, White-faced Ibis & Glossy Ibis all nested there.
  3. Never managed to get it down. Dropped it when a couple other birds tried to steal it.
  4. The metropolitan area in general. I've heard people in Joisey say it too 😉.
  5. Awesome shots!! Was wondering about technique. The ones with lit up foregrounds, did you use flash along with a long exposure?
  6. A New Yorker would say fuhgeddaboudit 😉.
  7. Think this is the right link; https://web.archive.org/web/20150917015603/http://www.whatbird.com/forum/index.php?/user/4669-stitch58/
  8. Sorry, link to my old profile not working.
  9. Thanks for posting this Kevin! It does bring back a lot of memories! I joined originally in 2008 (my original profile; http://www.whatbird.com/forum/index.php?/user/4669-stitch58/ ). I was brand new to birding then & was more of a lurker but definitely learned a lot here. Don't know if anyone else remembers Vin The Grine but he was a fellow NJ birder & kind of took me "under his wing" at the time. Learned a lot from him but lost touch when he moved out of state. I was also the person that originally suggested starting the Flickr Whatbird group but Rogue Birder was the person that actually ran it. Used to really love participating in the Whatbird Big Year Forum too. It was a lot of fun competing against the other states. Not sure if this is the way he spelled it but anyone else remember SnowyOwl? Thanks again Kevin!
  10. Short-billed & Long-billed Dowitchers Buff-breasted Sandpiper Dunlin Killdeer Red Knot
  11. If I saw one of these in NJ I'd probably pass it off as a Ruby-crowned Kinglet.
  12. Same here, if I see them in local parks or the like they are pretty approachable but come across them in a woodland pond & you only see them flying away.
  13. Hudsonian Godwit Marbled Godwit ( w/ Oystercatchers & Western Willets ) Ruddy Turnstones American Oystercatcher Baird's Sandpiper (w/ Least) White-rumped Sandpiper
  14. Piping Plover Sanderlings Common Greenshank Reeve
  15. Couldn't find a thread for these & one of my favorite groups. Purple Sandpiper Upland Sandpiper Stilt Sandpiper Curlew Sandpiper American Golden Plover
  16. Leach's Storm-Petrel Tufted Duck Surf Scoter Razorbill
  17. Northern Gannet Bonaparte's Gull Common Murre Great Cormorant
  18. Shutter Priority for me. I don't like carrying a tripod so shooting with a heavier zoom requires higher shutter speeds while handholding. The slowest I'll usually go is 1/800 sec. but like to go higher if the light allows.
