Birds from today South Central Pa May 22 2020

1. European Starling.  Note the pointy bill and thin, iridescent neck feathers.

2. Thinking Least, but I'm no good at sandpipers.

3. Song Sparrow.  Fox Sparrows have paler bills and denser streaking on the flanks.

Thanks. Least Sandpiper would probably be ok, considering there were others there that were more easily identifiable, this one seemed to be a bit windblown.

1.  Starling. That bill is distinctive

2. I'm not certain, but I'm thinking White-rumped by the bulky body. Least's would have a distinct mark between dark and pale on the stomach.

3.  Song. Fox have yellow bills
