  1. Hi everyone, today I found a duck on the East River in Manhattan. It was associated with a group of smaller likely juvenile ducks. I was initially thinking of a female Gadwall with chicks but the all-black bill and head shape made me wonder whether it might be something else? This is the individual: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B-7ANao5XN1BQkRGUWktNW1EdW8 Here it is on the left close to one of the smaller ducks it was associated with (right): https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B-7ANao5XN1BSnlYMTJJd0d1RDg Another pic of the individual with the other ducks it was associated with: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B-7ANao5XN1BT0RWck1LN2UzaXc Looking forward to your ideas. Cheers, Stefan
  2. Great! Thanks for the reply and help!
  3. Hi everyone, I photographed this bird (see link) in CA, south of San Francisco. Although the shorter bill indicates Whimbrel, the lack of the distinct face pattern made me skeptical whether it might be a juvenile Long-billed Curlew but I have not much experience how variable the face pattern can be. Can anybody help out? https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B-7ANao5XN1BUUFMblVKM2tzNkk Cheers!
  4. Great, thanks for the help!!
  5. Hi everyone, the linked picture was taken in Central Park, New York in April. The bill seems to be slim and the bird less shiny compared to a Common Grackle. Is this a Rusty Blackbird? https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-7ANao5XN1BM0xZR3BiZEx1ek0/view Thanks!
  6. Thanks! Could you specify why you think these are Western and not Semipalmated or Dunlin?
  7. Great, thanks! I had the same feeling but wasn't sure. Actually, I just found another photo I am not 100% sure. Dunlin/Western Sandpiper?
  8. Hi all, I am not sure about this Plover I photographed on Vancouver Island in mid September. Looking forward to your IDs. Cheers!
  9. Great! Thanks for the help!
  10. 100% sure this is a Cape May?
  11. Hi everyone, I took this picture in Central Park (NYC) at the 16th of October this year but I am not 100% sure with the ID. Does anyone have an idea? Thanks!
  12. 1st of october this year. Thanks
  13. Hi everybody, I photographed this thrush in Central Park (NYC). Unfortunately, I only got this shot from below. Is anyone able to identify this thrush? I am leaning towards Gray-cheeked Thrush because of the lack of clear eyering. Cheers!
  14. Thanks everybody for the help!!
  15. Thanks for the quick reply! They mention in the National Geographic Birds of North America Field Guide that juvenile Wood-Pewees may have all-black bills. That's why I was wondering. Also because this one seems to be an quite early migrant since Phoebes are seen rather in September in Central Park. Would you exclude a Pewee?
