  1. First pic looks like maybe Common Murres. Could be wrong thought.
  2. Looks to be a Yellow-rumped Warbler.
  3. Belted Kingfisher, always a nice bird to see.
  4. Baltimore Oriole confirmed.
  5. Well that didn't take long! I got amazing views of this Say's Phoebe as it flew back and forth flycatching near an old barn. Great bird for NC!
  6. It's been many months since my last lifer, but this latest one was sweeeet! Taken yesterday in eastern NC.
  7. I'd like to call them Clay-coloreds, but the supercilia and malars look quite dull. I'm going with Chipping here.
  8. I'm sticking to Swamp Sparrow for 2 and switching to immature White-crowned for 3.
  9. Oh there's a Glaucous Gull back there... is that the lifer?
  10. Gonna go with 1. Great Black-backed Gull 2. Swamp Sparrow 3. Dunno. White-throated?
  11. Le Conte's! How did you get one out in the open?
  12. Here's a picture of the palest Iceland Gull I could find and even it shows a lot of barring on the mantle, and they just become more dingy from there. The only gull I know of with absolutely no coloration like that is Glaucous, but again the bird is too small and the beak is too small and narrow. The beak on the bird in question is thicker than I'd expect on Iceland as well.
  13. It's too small to be a Glaucous Gull. I'd say it's an albino or highly leucistic common species like Herring.
  14. Looks like a Black Redstart imo. As Liam said, location would help a lot.
  15. Ring-necked Duck, imo.
