Florida/Texas road trip bird ID help #18

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

perhaps the final one...

1) A bit light looking, but since it doesn't look like a Snowy Plover, the only option seems Black-bellied?
Location:  Bolivar Flats Shorebird Sanctuary, TX

2) OK the ones on top are probably Black-bellied (left one), but what about the olive legged ones below? Could they be dowitchers?

4) The one that flew away? Perhaps same as #3 but legs seem darker.
Location:  Bolivar Flats Shorebird Sanctuary, TX

4) The one on the right... Ruddy Turnstone?

5) Ideas?

Thanks,

1. Black-bellied Plover

2. Black-bellied Plover, Dunlins, and Dowitchers (won't hazard a guess as to which dowitcher)

4. Black-bellied Plovers and a Dowitcher

4. Semipalmated Plover, Ruddy Turnstone, Dunlin

5. I have no clue whatsoever, but @Kevin's guess seems good

5 looks like a Rock Pigeon to me.

You are right, now I remember! I promised my better half I won't take any photos of pigeons though 🙂

Thank you all for all the ID help in past week! Managed to identify & file around 2000 photos. The roadtrip was a success, despite initially not looking good! Total species photographed on the trip - 130, US lifers - 85, World lifers - 75. Now I've seen more species in the US than in my home country, oops.
The bad - did not get any kingfishers, cranes. Did not do any birding in cities so missed some pigeons and even the common grackle.

So, until now I've been to AZ, NV, NM, TX, FL, CO, UT, WY, MO, and a day or two in CA. So what would yield more species - California in May or Oregon + Washington in summer? Well, first lets hope the coronavirus scare subsides.
