Wow...wish I could identify NFCs... I don't even know where to start.

When I started I’d just sit outside in the evening with my phone in a bucket, and only identify the distinct ones.I picked up VIRA and Sora this way, along with Solitary and Spotted Sandpipers.

There was some decent Vismig this morning. I just need to find a better vantage point. 
Cape-May Warbler (I think)

Nashville Warbler

Blackburnian Warbler

Green Heron

Nice! I actually saw my first Green Heron in flight. It's so funny to see these tiny birds in midair with their wings folded!

I guess my question is what resources do you use to identify them?

Here’s a few sites that I reference. There’s a pretty active Facebook group dedicated to their identification as well.

Can't get BirdCast data for anywhere right now! It just says:

"No forecast data is available at this location.

We generate forecasts from March 1st to June 1st and August 1st to November 15th during respective Spring and Fall migration seasons for the lower 48 states of the United States."

Anybody else have this problem??

Hmm, it’s working fine for me. New York and much of the east is going to be a dull orange for these next few days.
