  1. warbling vireo?

    thank you all. I do see some yellow underneath if I look hard enough. is that what would make this philadelphia over warbling vireo?
  2. warbling vireo?

    The only warbler I could possibly get to match from what I am looking at is Tennessee Warbler. Here is another photo I have (not sure how much this helps)
  3. Birds of Connecticut 2017

  4. warbling vireo?

    Taken a couple days ago in Manchester CT. Is this a warbling vireo or am I way off?
  5. Warbler ID

    is anyone available to advise what ruled out philadelphia vireo here? thanks in advance.
  6. Taken today in Manchester CT. I feel fairly certain on these IDs but looking for confirmation if possible.
  7. Warbler ID

    ok thanks, I started second guessing myself wondering what ruled out philadelphia vireo.
  8. Warbler ID

    after further review I'm fairly confident it us a young yellow warbler. thank you all.
  9. Warbler ID

    Taken today in Manchester CT. I was thinking Tennessee Warbler. Any thoughts to confirm or oppose are greatly appreciated.
  10. Warbler ID

    Another picture:
  11. Warbler ID

    Taken 9/8/17 in Manchester CT. I am having a little bit of trouble with this one. I didnt know if possible yellow warbler (1st summer transitioning?) I noticed eye ring and streaks on chest, but could not match any with this other than possible yellow warbler. Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.
  12. The first picture was taken Saturday in Milford CT. The second picture was taken last year in August in Guilford CT I believe. The first picture I am fairly certain is a seaside sparrow. The second picture (which I took last year), I had down as a seaside sparrow, but now wondering if this was actually a saltmarsh sparrow? I was looking at my sibleys guide and could not match the amount of orange on the face with no buffy color to accompany the streaks. Any thoughts are greatly appreciated on both.

  14. Bairds Sandpiper

    Taken last weekend in West Haven CT. Almost positive these shots are of a baird's sandpiper noting black legs and buffy breast. Any confirmation is greatly appreciated before I post to ebird. Thank you,
  15. Parasitic Jaeger

    Taken the first week of August at Race Point on Cape Cod. I was looking through my guide and pretty sure this is parasitic jaeger. Any confirmation is greatly appreciated as I do not have any experience with Jaegers.
