  1. Ruddy ducks. Male with whitish cheeks and darker cap.
  2. Thanks, everyone! I was hoping for a stray Iceland Gull...a guy can hope.
  3. I would appreciate help in identifying these gulls, taken at Virginia Beach around noon on Jan. 27. Particularly, the two light-gray-backed ones in picture 1, and the left-middle one in pictures 2 & 3. Thanks!
  4. Most of my birding experience is in Thailand. I'm fairly certain of: 1. Gray-breasted prinia 3. Helmeted guineafowl (from Africa) 4. Blue whistling-thrush
  5. This thrush was feeding on the ground below my feeder at 1:15 pm on Dec. 6, 2018 in Henrico County (Richmond), Virginia. I am guessing it is a Hermit Thrush, but would like any input, either way. Thanks!
  6. This hawk was observed above Tuckahoe Creek in Henrico County (Richmond), Virginia, at 2 pm on Nov. 27. I'm thrown off by the coloration, even though the markings seem to indicate a Red-tailed Hawk. Any input would be much appreciated.
  7. Our son and daughter-in-law live in Jax, so we've visited them twice in the last two months. We are only in the US for one year (based in VA), so I am getting in as many US species as I can. I would love to have had a guide! Perhaps next time we're down there. Thanks for the offer!
  8. Tony, I hope to have a good shot at an Ibisbill soon, as I travel in Central Asia quite often.
  9. Thanks, Tony. Now I wish I had taken better pics...I don't have a Red Knot yet! A subsequent visit to that spot yielded better shots of the peeps, which I identified as Western Sandpiper. I am learning a lot about North American coastal species!
  10. Thanks--I appreciate the confirmation on the Caspian, and your guess on the Common. I noticed after I posted this that the small tern just right of center in the top photo has a light-tipped beak, which might indicate a Sandwich Tern.
  11. I need help in IDing some of the terns in the attached pics. They were photographed at approximately 12 pm on Sept. 14, 2018, at Huguenot Memorial City Park in Duval County, near Jacksonville, FL. Shorebirds are a new challenge for me, so any help and instruction will be most appreciated. In all three pictures, I'm hoping to identify the smaller terns (not the Caspians or Skimmers). Thanks!

Shorebirds are a new challenge for me, so any help and instruction will be most appreciated. Pic 1: 4 peeps next to Black-Bellied Plover Pic 2: 2 peeps in water with Skimmers, Caspian Terns, and Sanderlings in foreground. Pic 3: peep next to Sanderlings for convenient size comparison.
  13. The attached pictures were taken at 6 pm on Sept. 10 in Nellysford, VA. Unfortunately, I only got a blurred shot of the tail from a poor angle, as you can see. I believe this is either a juv. Red-shouldered or Broad-winged Hawk. I would appreciate any guidance!
