  1. I am wondering if anyone can help with confirming that the two photos below are of American Black Ducks. The photos were taken on 1/18/18 at Lake Monticello, Palmyra, VA. The photos are digiscoped and not so great. https://www.flickr.com/photos/146543736@N07/39735818422/in/datetaken/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/146543736@N07/27989030999/in/datetaken/ I also am wondering if the goose at the end of this group could be a cackling goose. It seemed smaller than the others, but I realize that this could be because of the distance between them. https://www.flickr.com/photos/146543736@N07/39767578871/in/datetaken/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/146543736@N07/27989035399/in/datetaken/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/146543736@N07/39735812682/in/datetaken/ Thank you for any help that you may have to offer!

  4. Forster's Tern?

    I took this poorly digiscoped photograph on 4/2/17 at Bethel Beach Nature Preserve near Mathews, VA on the Chesapeake Bay. I am wondering if the tern in the back with a black cap, orange bill with black tip is a Forster's Tern. Thank you for any help!
  5. raptor id

    Cool! That's what I was thinking (and hoping), but it wasn't quite matching the pictures in my field guide. Thank you for the help.
  6. raptor id

    I saw this bird perched at the top of a tree in the middle of a field in central Virginia.
  7. Hawk ID

    Yes, the boards are about 6 inches wide. I first saw it last night, but it was too dark to take photos. It was on the ground and eating something. From the evidence outside, it looks to have been a squirrel. This morning, it was back in the same area on the ground and then perched for several minutes on the fence.
  8. confirm Prothonotary Warbler

    Yes, a Prothonotary Warbler.
  9. Hawk ID

    I am looking for some help in identifying this hawk. I photos were take in my yard in Palmyra, VA. I think it is a juvenile Cooper's or Sharp-shinned Hawk, but not sure which. https://www.flickr.com/photos/146543736@N07/30857191514/in/datetaken-public/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/146543736@N07/31698844825/in/datetaken-public/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/146543736@N07/30857199884/in/datetaken-public/
  10. I saw this bird today at Bethel Beach Natural Area Preserve on the Chesapeake Bay near Mathews, VA. I am still learning to identify shorebirds and am wondering if I am correct in thinking this is a Black-bellied Plover. Thank you for any help!
  11. Shorebird ID Help

    I am still in the very early learning stages of shorebirds, and am wondering what types of shorebirds these are. I think the first 3 photos might be a Least Sandpiper. The fourth photo, I really have no idea. All three birds were photographed on Sept. 9 at Bethel Beach Natural Area Preserve which is on the Chesapeake Bay near Mathews, VA .https://www.flickr.com/photos/146543736@N07/29601093200/in/datetaken-public/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/146543736@N07/29267852944/in/datetaken-public/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/146543736@N07/29781415292/in/datetaken-public/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/146543736@N07/29860232956/in/datetaken-public/ Thank you for any help that may be offered!
  12. I THINK these are Short-billed Dowitchers, but am look for someone more experienced with shorebirds to confirm. The photos were taken at Hughlett Point Natural Area on the Chesapeake Bay near Kilmarnock, VA.
