  1. I did see several Barn swallows in that area, as well, so that's certainly not out of the question.
  2. OK, thanks all! Was that, indeed, the identifying field mark that caused to you pick Boat-tailed over Common?
  3. Hi, I know this photo is quite distant. Can anyone help discern whether it is a Common or Boat-tailed grackle? What would be the telltale field marks to look for? Photo was from last month, in coastal southern NJ. Thanks, Steve ***Wherever you are in the world, I wish my fellow birders (and EVERYONE) continued health and safety in this present time of uncertainty. Be well… ***
  4. Hmm, OK, thanks. I'll expect some other supporting opinions to follow soon. Thanks! 👍
  5. Hopefully these will help shed some light. Left full-sized and unedited.
  6. Loving the informative reply, thanks! 👍
  7. I'll try to keep that in mind, thanks!
  8. Hmm. Oh, OK. I did see several others in the vicinity the same day, so that makes sense. 👍
  9. I still have trouble discerning one from the other in my bird guide, so I'll gladly defer. Thanks, both!
  10. Hi, Can anyone help me discern which species this is? My best guess is Northern rough-winged swallow. Photo was from last month, in coastal southern NJ. Thanks, Steve ***Wherever you are in the world, I wish my fellow birders (and EVERYONE) continued health and safety in this present time of uncertainty. Be well… ***
  11. Hi, Can anyone help me discern which species this is? I’m thinking it’s either a Solitary Sandpiper; or one of the Yellowlegs. Photo was from this past May, in southern NJ. Thanks, Steve ***Wherever you are in the world, I wish my fellow birders (and EVERYONE) continued health and safety in this present time of uncertainty. Be well… ***
  12. I didn't see this bird fly in, but I did see a [definitive] Redtail shortly later in the same vicinity, which I'm willing to bed was the same guy/gal. Once again, thank you for the very informative reply! 👍
  13. Thanks for the response. As always, I appreciate the education. 👍
  14. Hmm, OK - I had considered that possibility, although even juveniles seem to show them distinctly; I would have characterized this more as "vertical streaking". ...But if no other opinions come in, I'll concede that you're right. Thanks for responding!
