  1. http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S39380814 "Singing" Wrong wrong wrong wrong, wrong wrong wrong wroooong
  2. Sparrow

    Agreed with Lincoln's
  3. Lincoln's Sparrow?

    Song sparrow - streaking is too heavy for Lincoln's
  4. Florida Keys - October

    So we are still planning this trip for the Second week of October...but Irma might have other things to say about that. If we do still go, I think there might be some excellent birds blown in from the hurricane but I wonder if the habitat on the keys will be destroyed. Its a waiting game now, praying it goes east and misses Florida all together...
  5. Whiskey Jack?

    Its a juvenile Gray Jay
  6. A Raft of Lake Birds

    Look like grebe's, most likely pied-billed
  7. Its a Nashville Warbler - you can see the yellow on the throat, the gray hood does not go all the way around. Only thing missing is an eyering, which all three species have to some extent
  8. Couple Spots in the Adirondacks

    There are no other trails except the main railroad grade that bisects the bog. You can enter from the north or south, or even do a walk through if you have 2 vehicles. Its almost 4 miles end to end. We enter from the north, walk to the first main snow mobile bridge (~1.5 miles) and turn around. Sufficient habitat in that stretch to get what you want.
  9. Couple Spots in the Adirondacks

    As for Bloomingdale Bog, I have birded it many times in June (while camping at Saranac). Its a little late for singing warblers, but still can be very productive. We always enter from Bloomingdale Gabriels Road and walk south along the main trail. There will be gray jays all around looking for handouts. Last year, we had black-backed woodpecker within feet of the trail and several boreal chickadees in mixed flocks. Everything you need is from the main trail. No experience with Whiteface, sorry
  10. Mourning Warbler?

    wow - do you happen to have ANY picture that shows the eye area? The black bib is very small, which means it could be a Connecticut. Much, much less likely, but the black is just not there like a Mourning should have
  11. Unknown Bird

    white breasted nuthatch
  12. Question for those that post to eBird

    If your not interested in doing it every day, focus on days when you see new species (for the month, year, etc) or when there is an unusually high number of species/birds. That,s what we do, if a new species shows up in the yard or feeder, we make a quick list. This time of year, I'm listing almost every day!
  13. Which Waterthrush ?

    I was going to say Louisiana as well, only because they are "more common" in spring in NY. But that's all relative...
  14. What Is This Beauty?

    White Crowned Sparrow
  15. Help With 2 Birdies, Please!

    Yellow-rump warbler on left, chipping sparrow on right
