    Red-tailed Hawk?

    That's a good point. Thank you.
  2. Upstate New York, early August. Was with another, flying over, calling loudly. Sounded like a Red-tailed, but eBird said it was rare for the area, so I want to make sure.
  3. I found this injured bird in Queens NY in fall of 2008. I always thought it was a Bittern but I wonder if it might be a young GRHE instead. Does the black neck marking make it a bittern?
  4. Thank you, and thank you for the analysis! That's very helpful.

    New York sparrow

    Thank you very much!
  6. Mountains of upstate new york, high in a tree, in a somewhat open field. Didn't hear it vocalize. Last week. Do you think it's possible to tell from these photos?
  7. Found this morning foraging on the ground, alone;. All photos are of the same individual. Could it be a young song sparrow?
  8. This is a photo taken of a shorebird on the south shore of Long Island, NY, this morning. It's the only one I have. Does anyone have any ideas? Thinking it might be a semipalm or a sanderling.
  9. Thank you very much! Makes sense.
  10. Found this morning in Long Island, New York.
  11. After some investigation, I think it's probably a Blue-headed Vireo. I'd delete the post if I could, but I don't think that's allowed.
  12. Thank you so much! That's extremely helpful, as usual. I never noticed that about the feet.
  13. Found this bird singing deep in the woods of eastern NY, very high up. I'm fairly sure the song was coming from a small, warbler-type bird that I couldn't see clearly, but I might be wrong. Any thoughts? small_bird_song.mp3 Edit: I should add that this was yesterday, July 28th.
  14. Looks right to me! Is the bill shape and general behavior (e.g. upside down, rapid movements) enough to distinguish it definitively from Yellow-throated Vireo?
