  1. You never know where and when you’ll see birds to photograph! We just checked in to our hotel in Asheville, NC and from our fifth floor patio I see these two birds in a tree across the street. I was able to steady my camera on the low wall. I believe these to be a male and female House Finch. Am I correct?
  2. Spotted this small bird at a cemetery in Charleston, SC today. There were some YRWs in the area but I’m not seeing any butter butt here. Hope someone can help me ID. Thank you.
  3. Thank you both so much! Two lifer birds for me (the Black Redstart and White Wagtail) so I’m thrilled!
  4. I didn’t photograph many birds during a recent visit to Lisbon, Portugal. But I did come away with four types that I can use help identifying. Thank you!
  5. Photographed this bird during a Ravenel Bridge walk in Charleston, SC. I’m pretty sure it’s a European Starling. A photo my wife took shows its yellow bill. Thank you!
  6. Yes it was Charlie! You know that spot too sounds like.
  7. So, akandula, based on the yellow bill color of the pair in my first photo these are both female?
  8. Thanks for the link Charlie. How does a male become non-breeding? Is it seasonal?
  9. Wow what a surprise! Didn’t see the distinctive male white patch so thought a different type merganser. It’s kind of funny because I just took this photo at a North Carolina rest stop. I thought Hoodies but these are Buffleheads right?
  10. Charleston, SC area pond by my house today. Not the usual visitors. I am thinking Mergansers. If so, are they Red-breasted or Common? Something else? Thank you!
  11. Yes, Sanderling, thank you akiley and Kevin too. A great sign at the beach park shows and describes a number of local shore birds. I still wasn’t sure so thank again.
  12. I'm having trouble getting a positive ID on these small shorebirds I photographed last weekend at Folly Beach, S.C.
  13. That was my second choice. Thank you for the responses!
