  1. Those large white patches are not far enough out on the wing to be a Lesser in my opinion.
  2. It was with a juv male Rose-breasted (red underwing coverts). Rare, but not possible to rule out by range
  3. I think everything points to female RBGR, except maybe darkness to upper mandible, but that is only really true in breeding season it seems like? Streaking is bold and across breast. Head stripes really distinct white, very few orange hues.
  4. Generally universities and organizations will have a permit that allows them to handle and collect dead birds. That permit allows for possession of specimens collected by others. So it is illegal to keep feathers and dead birds, but as mentioned by @chipperatltotally legal to bring a dead bird to one of these natural history collections. (this is in the US)
  5. birdie 🐦 #116: 🟥🟩⬛⬛⬛⬛ https://birdiegame.net/ if only I knew my plants better
  6. It didn't call, and I see features of both dowitchers. The scapulars lack white and seem to be alternate plumage, but need help
  7. The buffy and reddish feathers on the wings is a major difference in coloration. Also the back is not green like in a green heron.
  8. Considering that the only thing off on this bird is the apparent darkness on the auricular, I think it is probably tough to call it a hybrid especially considering it is in shadow. The breast doesn't seem to have much yellow on it. The scapulars aren't streaky greenish at all, and the sides are classic hermit warbler imo. Edit: I do think your instincts are good and it is surprisingly dark in the malar area as well, just I am not seeing any examples of birds called hybrids that did't have more features intermediate.
  9. Voting long billed on the dowitchers. Seem to be in full alternate plumage and the white edging/tips of the scapular feathers is pronounced, also they seem round and bulky.
  10. Actually I think I'm wrong on the wing coloration, maybe thats just an immature differentiator. But the 3rd pic does seem to show a bill coloration that works better for forster's
