  1. Hi everyone, I took the attached photo in New York, Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge in August. I am looking for some help especially whether there are Blue-winged Teals among the photographed birds. I IDed Northern Shovelers in the back, Mallard and a Gadwall in the front. My question is whether the birds labeled with asterisks are Blue-winged or Green-winged Teals or something entirely different? https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-7ANao5XN1BTEFYLU00bng5Q1E/view?usp=sharing Cheers!
  2. Warbler Help

    Thanks for the quick replies. I also considered Yellow Warbler, but they usually have a more plain face. This one shows a relatively clear yellowish stripe over the eye which I never saw on a Yellow Warbler. There were a few Orange-crowned Warbler in Central Park this year around that time.
  3. Warbler Help

    Hi, I took this photo in Central Park in May of this year. Quality is not great but I hope somebody can help out. Initially I thought it is female Common Yellowthroat but now I am thinking it might be an Orange-crowned?! https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B-7ANao5XN1BRUtRRkc3dm9SUU0 What do you guys think? Cheers!
  4. Help ID'ing Duck

    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
  5. Great! Thanks for the reply and help!
  6. 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!
  7. Rusty Blackbird?

    Great, thanks for the help!!
  8. Rusty Blackbird?

    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!
  9. Which Plover?

    Thanks! Could you specify why you think these are Western and not Semipalmated or Dunlin?
  10. Which Plover?

    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?
  11. Which Plover?

    Hi all, I am not sure about this Plover I photographed on Vancouver Island in mid September. Looking forward to your IDs. Cheers!
