Birds in NY


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. Hope you guys are keeping cool. Went camping last week in Chenango Valley State Park and Clarence Fahnestock State Park and was lucky to see some amazing birds. I need help with some doubts I have. I think the brown streaked one is a juvenile cowbird but I didn't see a lot of cowbirds around. I mostly saw juncos nearby where this little one was.

Then  - I have two flycatchers from a distance that I think are both Great Crested Flycatchers. However, one had a longer tail.

Then, I think the darker flycatcher is an Eastern Phoebe, however, it didn't do the tail wag. Could it be a least flycatcher? That's my other guess.

Also I think this is a sharp skinned hawk. It's a terrible photo and the only one I managed to take. The hawks in NYC let me get closer.

And wood thrush?

Thanks everyone!

1. Juvenile Dark-eyed Junco

2-3. Great Crested Flycatcher

4. Eastern Phoebe (brown upperparts, no eyering or wingbars)

5. Either a Broad-winged or a Red-shouldered.  Leaning Broad-winged due to the darker brown upperparts and minimal streaking in the center of the breast.

6. Wood Thrush

I think the first bird is a juvenile Eastern bluebird.

Agree with your other ID's but not sure about the accipiter.

Edit: Junco makes sense for the first bird.  I just have never seen a juvenile.

I agree with this.
