  1. Swainson's Thrush?

    Thanks, certainly thought so, but have been there so many times before.
  2. Huguenot Memorial Park, NE FL this morning Hermit Thrushes are expected. Swainson's are rare right now, so I am checking with you guys before I report it.

  3. One Plover or the other?

    I think of Wilson's with dull pinkish legs. Never saw a Collared, so don't know how different. Wilson's legs are definitely different than Semipalmated or Piping, which we see all of the time.
  4. Red Knot?

  5. Hawk

    Thanks. They look so much smaller when they are at your feet. Leaving, and last walk down one of the boardwalks and there it was.

    Sweetwater Wetlands, Gainesville, FL 11/07/17 First thought it was a Merlin, but can't be with yellow eye. 171107 sw 561 by Alta Tanner, on Flickr 171107 sw 562c by Alta Tanner, on Flickr 171107 sw 560c by Alta Tanner, on Flickr
  7. Wood Duck?

    Ok, I can see that. What's with the eye ring? Is this common? I see it in the book. There were plenty of Blue-winged Teal there. Thanks.
  8. Wood Duck?

    Sweetwater Wetlands, Gainesville, FL yesterday Others hadn't reported Wood Ducks there, but this is one isn't it? 171107 sw 455c by Alta Tanner, on Flickr

  11. Sandpipers and relatives

    I don't think they do snow! Sorry.
  12. Nelson's Sparrow?

    I had just cropped hundred+ photos of Saltmarsh and Seaside Sparrows from Big Talbot. Had just reread the difference between Nelson's and Saltmarsh when I read your post. 171105 sbp 051c by Alta Tanner, on Flickr 171105 sbp 103c by Alta Tanner, on Flickr or at least I think mine are Saltmarsh'es.
