  1. Baby owl?!!

    This bird was spotted in Connecticut a few days ago. I think this is a quite young owl. Does anybody know what species? It is hard to tell at this stage! Thank you!
  2. Today (7/26) while paddle boarding around Stamford Harbor, a shallow body of water in southern Connecticut, I saw a tern perching on a small rock off of a point. As this area is frequented by Common Terns in summer, I was not surprised, until I saw that this tern had plumage characteristic of Sterna species (Common, Forster's, etc) in non breeding, i.e. reduced cap, darkish bill. Unless this tern is a Royal Tern (which I doubt as this bird was about the size of the Common Terns in the area) no terns of this plumage frequent the northeast in the summer. Is this a lost migrant or a species unknown to me? (Also, sorry I did not provide pictures, this bird was quite inaccessible).
  3. gull help please

    There was a continuing 1st winter California Gull at the spot where this photo was taken (West Haven, CT today). I was told that this was the bird, but my photos don't seem to look too similar, but it could have been the lighting. Here is a link to photos of the bird taken a couple of days ago: http://www.shorebirder.com/2016/03/rosss-goose-and-california-gull.html My photo: Thanks!
  4. I saw this junco in my yard this morning, and I know it should be a Slate-colored by location, but it looks a bit odd to me. Can someone help me rule out other subspecies like Oregon? My best guess would be a 1st yr female SC, but I'm not sure. Today in CT. Thanks!
  5. Can a photo like this be edited to make it look decent? Any tips/tricks to remove the pale white shade that is partially obscuring the bird? Thanks for your help. I am an amateur at photo editing.
  6. Taken in Milford, Connecticut today. Either Semipalmated or Western. I have an opinion, but I don't want to sway responses. Thank you for your help! For ID purposes by Aidan Kiley, on Flickr
  7. What bird is this?

    Hello, I saw this bird in my front yard this morning perched near a hanging bird feeder. I originally thought it was a peregrine falcon, but now I'm not so sure due to the amount of white around the head and neck. I live in Madison, CT which is on the water, only about a mile away from the beach. I'd love to know what it is! Thanks!
  8. Hello, Yesterday I heard a new bird in our woods and I don't know what it is or how to identify it. I recorded the new call I heard this morning. Unfortunately there is some airplane noise and the sound of other birds (wood thrush, cardinal, maybe mourning dove). http://askjo.co/10RR0Lm The new sound is at approximately the following points in a 2+minute recording: 0:13 0:50 1:00 1:18 1:50 2:11 It sounds to me like "tru-leeep" Any help in identifying this new bird to our Southern Connecticut neighborhood would be greatly appreciated. Thank you! Joanne
  9. Have been trying to ID this bird seen in Central Connecticut on 10/7/12. Got quite the scare when we pulled into a space to park with our window open at McDonalds and this little fellow flew up and landed on the side mirror and hopped along it. Thank you for any help you might be able to give. Identification is far from my strong suit and I have a 5yr old who is still talking about this bird and wanting to know what it is.Sorry for the less then stellar images all I had was a cell phone camera
