  1. Portland, Maine. About 9AM. Much larger than crows and seagulls attacking it. Reminded me of a young bald eagle but the wings seem different. Maybe, broader? I ran some photos through Merlin and couldn’t get bald eagle to come up and that added even more skepticism. Any ideas? Sorry my phone camera is all I have but it’s better than no photos.

  2. Larger than a robin, smaller than a crow. Wading In the shallow ocean water. The belly looks like it’s a different color than the top. I haven’t seen these before. They must be less common in the city. August 27th. Around 1PM. Portland, Maine. 77D72E70-BB0A-401D-B2DC-025CBB21D254.MOV
  3. I thought that this bird was an Osprey but it was very clearly hunting something on the land. I’ve seen Osprey’s take materials do nests from beaches but this was hunting. It took at least 2 attempts before I filmed one. I don’t think an osprey would need multiple attempts to pick up nesting material. Do Ospreys Hunt land animals? Could this be a different bird? This was on Commercial Street in Portland, Maine. June 19th around 3PM. A dense patch of woods is on one side of the street and the ocean on the other. The video shows the bird very clearly after something on the ground. Sadly. that something is directly behind the man hill on the construction site. There is no mistaking what is going on here. (sorry the stupid max video size won’t allow more for better ID)
  4. Portland, Maine. Could this belong to a starling? Found in my yard, in a very urban area. (City of 70,000 in high density area) It was below a tree. I don’t know the time it was left but it was found during the day. It is about 2 inches long from top to end.
  5. I hate to post here since I had a very bad experience my first time. Please don’t reply if you don’t believe me about the size or anything else. Thank you. In Portland, Maine. The afternoon of May 29th 2019.dark colored bird larger than a crow or gull. Maybe about the size of an Osprey? Had what looks like a white band on the tail? The band is not because of the photo quality and did not appear to be it’s feet although I’m not completely ruling that out. The bird flew right over me and to the ocean ocean. If you disagree with any of the details I provided please don’t reply to tell me so. Thank you.
  6. I know. Cell phone photos suck but aren’t they better than no photos? Portland, Maine. February 2019. Dove sized, owl like? Sitting quietly in a small fruit tree with lots of branches that waxwings and robins visit 6E0020B9-4147-4179-A220-D44761F2857F.mp4
  7. This bird flew overhead at the Wells Reserve at Laudholm in Wells, Maine this Sunday. I think it's an Osprey but I'm not sure. Thanks!
