  1. I don't know my shorebirds...Please help! #3

    Yeah, I didn't see one either.
  2. Misc. Seattle birds

    How long the bill is! This might be interesting: https://www.surfbirds.com/ID Articles/dowitchers1005/dowitchers.html I don't know what they are, but I would think the photos are good enough that someone might.
  3. Sandy Hook, NJ - Plovers

    Congrats! I would say two looks more like a nonbreeding adult if it matters.
  4. Junco?

    I agree.
  5. Sparrow-like birds

    Agree with the IDs. Sure, but only in migration. As noted they don't breed in PA, (very northern NY or VT is the more southern edge of their breeding range) and so you are not going to see a juvenile Lincoln's Sparrow far outside the breeding range in PA.
  6. Whatbird's Young Birders!

    Sorry, I saw it in the paper copy and I don't have a link.
  7. Warbler species?

    Also with Yellow Warbler.
  8. Sandpiper in VT

    I agree with Least Sandpiper. The yellow legs you can see on this bird are also a good mark.
  9. Flycatcher?

    I would say that certainly looks like the same individual.
  10. Whatbird's Young Birders!

    @The Traveler and @chiccadee I just saw both of you made it into Birding magazine! Cool! Great drawing too, @chiccadee !
  11. Juvenile Grackle in VT?

    Definitely female Red-winged Blackbird.
  12. Help identify

    American Bittern and Common Yellowthroat. EDIT: Sniped...
  13. female ? and young

    Both are young European Starlings.
  14. Acts of Aggression

    Hum, as this is a quite young starling I think it's more likely that it was begging for food from the adult, rather than defending territory. Birds that age don't tend to have territories, so my bet is that he was just hungry. Great shot though.
