Shorebirds and a Swallow type bird help
Posted 29 July 2012 - 06:24 PM
There were also a bunch of swallow type birds flying around. They were a bit quick for my little camera. I believe that some were barn swallows (forked tail), any idea on the blurry ones I posted?

I agree with all the ids except in the first picture it looks like a Lesser Yellowlegs with the Solitary Sandpiper.
Agree with Eripma on the first, bill looks too straight and the bird's body shape/size point to Lesser. Agree with all of Psweet's other IDs.
Latest birds: Purple Sandpiper, Ross's Goose, White-winged Crossbill,
2013: 362 species
