Dooly County Rd. Birds in Georgia.


Recommended Posts

Today me and my father went to a pond to do some sandpiper birding. We saw multiple rarities that had been reported, and found two species of tern that turned out to be rare. Here are some photos of the birds I wasn't sure about. In the link to the checklist down below, you can see which birds I saw. Dooly County, Georgia, USA

https://ebird.org/checklist/S116726357

1. Pectoral?

2. Pectoral Sandpiper or Wilsons Phalarope?

3. Semipalmated Sandpiper or some other sandpiper? 

4. I am positive this is a Caspian Tern, but it is fairly rare here, so I want to double check.

5. Wilson Phalarope? I can't think of anything else.

6. Dowitcher or Stilt Sandpiper?

1. Yes, Pectoral

2. Pass

3. Looks fine for Semipalm IMO. 

4. Not Caspian with those orange legs, looks like Forster’s or common. 

5. Unidentifiable. 

Not sure which bird you are talking about, but probably unidentifiable.

Thanks, no telling which one right? Long billed would be a new bird for me.

Definitely not identifiable to species, unless you heard it call or one species is very rare by you.

Tern is Forster’s. I agree the Phalarope is most likely Wilson’s. 

Thanks. The Fosters Tern is a self found rarity that has not been reported in this county for more than a year. The Wilsons Phalarope is one of the main reasons we went. I found 4 more black terns that had not previously reported, and gained 4 lifers.
