  1. Hello again!


    Thanks for your help so far. 🙂 

    I've got a couple more that I'm looking for ID assistance on......


    The first two are different hummingbirds....  Both Vervain?  (The call sounded correct for Vervain for the first one, but didn't hear the second one.)

    Are the next three pictures possibly Yellow-faced Grassquits?











  2. Hello everyone 🙂


    It's been a while since I've posted on here, but I'm hoping to get your help with bird ID's from Jamaica in January.  

    Most of the pictures that I am struggling with are REALLY bad quality.....  I apologize!   ID's may not even be possible, but I thought I would give posting on here a shot anyway.


    The first bird was a swallow or swift high up above the resort in the evening....  Possible Antillean Palm-Swift?

    Second bird.....  Great-tailed Grackle?

    Third bird......  This is a hard sell!.....  I'm pretty sure it was a Cuckoo of some kind.  All you can see in the picture I have taken is the SUPER blurred, long tail of the bird.  (In the center of the photo.)  You can kind of see the white circular pattern on the tail though, which makes me think either Mangrove Cuckoo or Jamaican Lizard-Cuckoo.  The white edging on the tail, and the behavior, (moving really quickly along the tree branches), make me think Jamaican Lizard-Cuckoo?  I also heard the bird call, and I would say it was the Jamaican Lizard-Cuckoo call.....    


    Thanks for taking a look!





  3. Hello :-)


    Hoping to get some help with gull ID's on the following photos.  (If any ID's can be made from my bad quality pictures.)  All were taken in Nova Scotia last week.


    Thanks for the help!
