  1. Thanks, that would be a good bird for the area!
  2. Looking for help with this ID. Lehigh County, PA. Yesterday, 5/1. Thanks.
  3. Thanks all, for the ID's, and BigOly for the good advise too. Looks like Dunlin ruled the day!
  4. As promised, here are some pics from Bombay Hook, DE on April 30. Need help with most (all) - Thanks! 1) Dunlin and a few others? 2) Doesn't strike me as a Yellowlegs? 3) Short-billed Dowitcher and Greater Yellowlegs? 4) Black-bellied Plover (or?) and...? 5) Willet? 6) Dowitcher again?
  5. OK BigOly - thanks - I will post new pics in new thread(s). Most are of only slightly better quality. Still I do hope you don't regret it! These are (for me at least) very challenging!
  6. Thanks EVERYONE for all the input on this - I know it's a terrible pic! I'm land-locked in PA and hardly ever get to see shorebirds. So on a recent trip to Rehobeth Beach, I was all set to get some great pics - didn't realize how far away these types of birds could be! FYI, Willet is a lifer for me! THANKS again for the help. And, be forewarned - I have a bunch of other pics (mostly from Bombay Hook) that I'll be looking for help with...
  7. Pic from April 28, at Cape Henlopen, DE. I know there's probably not much to go on here, but hope someone can toss out a few possibilities. Thanks.
  8. OK S.C. - Thanks.
  9. Wondering if this bird can be ID'd from this pic? Thinking warbler with dark head, and prominent eye ring, but nothing's coming to mind as a good fit. Today in Lehigh County, PA.
  10. Thanks, I was leaning toward Bay-breasted, but wanted some conformation - it's a good bird for my part of the state!
  11. Can anyone help ID this bird? Today in Eastern PA. Thanks.
  12. Thanks creeker. Anyone else for the other birds?
  13. My first trip specifically for shorebirds has left me exasperated! In the pics below, from 4/30 at Bombay Hook, DE, I believe I have Semipalmated Plover, and Boat-tailed Grackle, plus 5 or 6 others that I can confidently call an ID on. They're probably pretty easy for anyone with some shorebird experience. All comments appreciated. Thanks! 1) 2) 3) 4)
  14. Thank You! This one's going in the books as Cooper's Hawk.
  15. Thanks, there's been some discussion for young Goshawk, based on apparent bulk/shape of body and smallish head. Thoughts?
