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!
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
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!
