  1. I got a few birds when I visited Bar Harbor, Maine back in August that I have trouble identifying. Would appreciate any help! Bird #1: looks like a vireo to me, but I am stumped by the wing bar and yellow on the wings. Bird #2: taken on a whale watch trip. Does this look like Leach's Storm-Petrel? The tail looks forked, and the wing bands don't have white on them... Bird #3: taken on the same whale watch trip. I was hoping it's a shearwater, but it doesn't match anything in my guide. Maybe a gull? Thank you!
  2. I saw these guys on a whale-watching trip off Cape Cod at the end of August. Are these Manx Shearwaters by any chance?
  3. Taken back on May 20 in northern New Jersey. Is this a Hermit Thrush? The tail doesn't have red on it though, so maybe something different? Thank you!
  4. I went birding today in Lettuce Lake Park near Tampa, FL. We came across this hawk (I think it's the same bird - we first saw it perched and then lost track of it, and then saw the soaring bird a minute later). Pictures are attached to this post. Is this a short-tailed hawk? It doesn't look like red-shouldered, and I am not sure what else it could be. Thank you!
  5. I took these pictures at Scarborough Marsh in Maine yesterday. They have both Nelson's and Saltmarsh Sparrows here (and hybrids). I am thinking that all of these look like Saltmarsh Sparrows - can someone confirm? Sparrow #1: Sparrow #2: Sparrow #3: Sparrow #4: Sparrow #5: Sparrow #6: Thank you!
  6. That is a great set of comparison photos - thank you!
  7. I just came back from a trip to Mount Washington in New Hampshire. I got a few pictures of thrushes along the way. But they are hard to distinguish - the recent sightings have both Swainson's and Bicknell's thrushes there. Would anyone be able to confirm these? Thursh #1 - around 3,500 feet (Swainson's?) Thursh #2 - same area: Thrush #3 - at around 4,200 feet: Thrush #4 - might be the same bird as #3, but was seen a bit higher: Thank you!
