  1. I'm looking for some help with 3 shorebirds that I saw this week near the Chesapeake Bay in VA. All of the photos were digiscoped, and are not so great. The first phot was taken on July 18 at Bethel Beach Natural Area near Mathews, VA. Semipalmated Sandpipers?? This bird was at New Point Comfort Natural Area, also near Mathews, VA. Western Sandpiper?? This final bird was seen at Huglett Point Natural Area near Kilmarnock, VA. Sanderling?? Sanderling?? Sanderling?? Thank you so much for any help!
  2. This photo was taken in Richmond, Virginia on December of 2019. I think it is a hawk, and wondering if anyone might know what kind.
  3. I saw these ducks on March 15, 2020 at Lake Monticello, near Palmyra in central VA. I am wondering if they are Greater Scaup. Any help is appreciated. Thanks you! https://www.flickr.com/photos/146543736@N07/49663740682/in/datetaken-public/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/146543736@N07/49662919058/in/datetaken-public/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/146543736@N07/49663454576/in/datetaken-public/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/146543736@N07/49663740382/in/datetaken-public/

  6. I saw this bird at Bethel Beach Natural Area (Chesapeake Bay) near Mathews, Va on 7/24/19. I am having trouble deciding if it is a least or semipalmated sandpiper. I leaning towards semipalmated. Thank you for any help!
  7. I saw this grebe on Lake Monticello near Charlottesville, VA on March 31, 2019. I was figuring a Horned Grebe because that grebe usually appears on the lake each winter. Another birder saw the photo and proposed a Red-necked Grebe.
  8. These photos were taken at Lake Monticello, near Charolottesville, VA on Mar. 31, 2019. I am also wondering if the female duck in the last photo is a Ring-necked Duck. https://www.flickr.com/photos/146543736@N07/33630223808/in/datetaken-public/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/146543736@N07/46783159614/in/datetaken-public/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/146543736@N07/33630226668/in/datetaken-public/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/146543736@N07/32564680637/in/datetaken-public/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/146543736@N07/33630230528/in/datetaken-public/
  9. I am wondering if the bird in the middle could be a female Greater Scaup. The photo was taken at Lake Monticello, near Charlottesville, VA on Feb. 2, 2019.
  10. I was able to take some photos this morning of what I think is the same goose.
  11. I took these poorly digiscoped photos near sunset on Jan. 21 at Lake Monticello near Palmyra, VA. I'm trying to determine if the goose in the middle is a cackling goose. https://www.flickr.com/photos/146543736@N07/32956368078/in/datetaken-public/ Here are some other photos: https://www.flickr.com/photos/146543736@N07/46779745492/in/datetaken-public/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/146543736@N07/46779741012/in/datetaken-public/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/146543736@N07/32956364088/in/datetaken-public/ Thank you for any help that you have to offer!
  12. Digiscoped on 9/2/18 near Rappahannock River in Warsaw, VA. I'm trying to determine if the first two photos are of a Black-bellied Plover or an American Golden Plover. I'm also wondering if the 1st sandpiper is a Solitary Sandpiper, and I am looking for ideas on the 3rd bird! Thank you for your help!
  13. These shorebirds were seen at the edge of a flooded cornfield near the Rappahannock River in Warsaw, VA. I believe both types of yellowlegs were there. I appreciate any help with confirming the two yellowlegs and why the 3 bird in photo 3 might be. Thank you!
