We were birding together.

That supports @Connor Cochrane's theory.

Sorry for the confusion @lonestranger @Connor Cochrane @Sneat!

No worries. I'm still confused though.

We also have the same camera.

When you say you have the same camera, do you mean that you share the same camera and share the same photos, or do you both have your own cameras that happen to be the same make and model?

We have different cameras that are the same model.

Wow, I never would have thought that the two photos were taken by two separate people on two separate cameras. The framing and composition looks virtually identical in both photos to me, which I was sure was more than just coincidence, but apparently not. Thanks for the explanation.

How rare are Collared-dove on the East Coast? In California, especially in the Central Valley, every four telephone poles has one.

They're pretty uncommon in the northeast, including the area around the Appalachian Mountains.

Amazing day in Point Reyes California.

Total list of rarities. 1 Black-and-white Warbler 1 Chestnut-sided Warbler 1 Magnolia Warbler 2 Northern Parula 1 Rose-breasted Grosbeak 1 Lesser Nighthawk (6th county record I believe). I missed Red-eyed Vireo.

This seemingly would be a good spring for a first state record Swainson’s Warbler to show up...

What is the definition of rare? 

I would say something flagged on ebird as rare, that is not flagged because its needed for confirmation, and/or less than 10 records a year in a given area. While that might seem high for some areas, places where there are a lot of birders, and good geography, 10 is a low number. If you in response of the many different numbers and species I had, there was a fallout , on Point Reyes, which is a piece of land that sticks way out into the ocean, that has 4 groups of trees on the 20 mile peninsula. Perfect vagrant trap.
