  1. I saw these terns(?) flying around and maybe harassing a big flock of small shorebirds around dusk in Castro Valley, CA. It was from a distance so I only managed to get these shots. This was in January. P1010423.MP4
  2. 08 Mar 2022 Baldwin co. AL; mouth of delta; sandy shoreline, mudflats, abundant brush, cane, cattails, shrubby vegetation I thought these might be Spotted Sandpipers
  3. Hello, fabulous forum! I think I snapped photos of some northern Shovelers and perhaps Greater or lesser Yellowlegs from afar. Can anyone confirm? I think also that the one I snapped flying is aldo a yellowlegs?

  4. After months of the backyard and neighborhood my wife and I ventured to Galveston to see shorebirds. Is this a Willet? First picture is next to a Gull for scale Thanks as always
  5. A small Sandpiper at Oak Hammock marsh in Manitoba 5 days ago.
  6. Photographed this little shorebird Last Wednesday at the Oak Hammock Marsh here in Manitoba.
  7. Here are some Pacific shorebirds along California. The pictures were taken in October. Thanks! 1. Black Oystercatcher? 2. Which gull is this? And is it possible to ID the small bird in bottom right corner? 3. Which gull is this? 4. Which gull is this? 5. Which gull is this?
  8. Hello Forum! Thank you for all of your recent help in identifying my first west coast birds. YOU GUYS ROCK!!! I've got a few more that I can't quite place and would appreciate some help. Thanks! 1. The Merlin Bird App keeps pegging this one as a non-breeding or juvenile Black-Bellied Plover. It was larger than nearby sanderlings, smaller than willetts. Can anyone confirm?

The yellow on the side points to Chevron. Can anyone confirm? DSC_2852 by degibox, on Flickr DSC_2853 by degibox, on Flickr DSC_2861 by degibox, on Flickr 4. Lesser Yellow-legs??? DSC_2844 by degibox, on Flickr 5. For this last set I'm hoping I've captured the West Coast seagull trifecta of California Gull, Western Gull, and Heerman's Gull. Western seems certain. Are there any California's in there? The one in the center of of the last pick was IDed as Heerman's by Merlin Bird ID but also marked as Rare. Would love human confirmation. A.

  9. I could use help identifying this flock of shorebirds (?) on the Bosphorus in June, 2013.
  10. On June 25th, at Hayward Regional Shoreline in Hayward, CA, in a pond in the marshes just north of Winton Ave entrance, there was a mixed flock of non-migrating Marbled Godwits and Willets, plus a couple Avocets and Black necked Stilts. I had seen about 20 Red necked Phalaropes in this pond a few days before, so I'm pretty sure the small white with red neck birds in this group are them. There are also some cinnamon colored small plump birds mixed in. Red Phalarope? Red Knot? other? Sorry photo is not great. The Red necked Phalaropes where right near the path when I was on my bike, with no camera. Of course, when I returned with 400mm lens a few days later, the raft of birds was quite far out. Hopefully you can zoom on this image, or I can add a cropped version... It was a very high tide, and very windy - conditions in which you can sometimes find exotics along this shoreline. Thanks in advance for any input!
  11. Good morning, I am trying to determine what sandpiper as I had a thought that it was a western and someone had suggested the same thing. But not quite sure it is. It is larger than nearby semipalmated and the bill is thicker and droops more. It was taken in Cumberland County, NJ 5/27/2019. Some guides seem to say that this is a rare springtime sandpiper if a western for my area, Southern New Jersey. Thank you, Nancy
  12. I need help in IDing some of the terns in the attached pics. They were photographed at approximately 12 pm on Sept. 14, 2018, at Huguenot Memorial City Park in Duval County, near Jacksonville, FL. Shorebirds are a new challenge for me, so any help and instruction will be most appreciated. In all three pictures, I'm hoping to identify the smaller terns (not the Caspians or Skimmers). Thanks!
