  1. Is this a Merlin?

    Scaring some seabirds on a lake this morning. Thanks to anyone that can help identify what's in these photos.
  2. Just a Robin?

    I saw this bird today hanging out near a pond. There were a lot of robins in the area, but there was one bird just perching up in the tree, not moving, and it was really dark, and couldn't make it out even in my binoculars. I thought it seemed different in shape so I took a photo hoping I could ID it later. But this is the best I've got it to. The amount of white on the underside is throwing me off. Thanks for any help
  3. Hello! I am completely clueless on bird types and I've been dying to know what kind of bird I saw November 17, 2016 in Brooklyn, New York I live in an apartment building but we have a terrace near this giant tree. Anyway I was in the kitchen when I heard this loud thud on my window. I go to the terrace and see this bird standing there like a complete boss lol. The only birds I've ever seen are pigeons and the occasional doves so it was easily the largest bird I've ever seen. Sorry the pics are so low quality. The bird was standing there and then flew off into the tree and perched there before flying off. It had yellow feet and legs it was a light gray color. It it would be much appreciated if someone could help me identity what bird this was! Thank you!
  4. 2 Birds in my yard

  5. Help with a Duck!

    Hello, Forum! Earlier this afternoon I was hiking through Stewart State Forest in Rock Tavern, New York. One of the trails goes through a swamp where in the distance I kept seeing what appeared to be small to medium sized ducks flying and landing. They were perceived as being dark/black with flashes of white. The sound they were making sounded little like a "quack" and more like a "squeak, squeak, squeak," in a mid-range pitch. Below are some incredibly crude silhouettes of one of them plus a picture of where I was for reference. I know this is tough but if any of you can help me narrow it down with the details I've given, that'd be great! Thanks. -Peter WhatDuck3 by degibox, on Flickr WhatDuck2 by degibox, on Flickr WhatDuck by degibox, on Flickr Stewart Forest Swamp by degibox, on Flickr
  6. Hello all, I’m hoping you can help me identify a bird. In the past week I’ve seen a small bird of prey in New York City that I haven’t seen before. I’m familiar with the red tailed hawks of central park but this bird is too small to be one of these hawks, and has different coloring. It’s a small bird of prey with a very high pitched cry. I’ve seen it in midtown and west Chelsea. I’m a birding amateur but I thought it might be a peregrine falcon or kestrel? I’ve attached a photo that I took when it landed on the skylight of my office building (apologies for the quality – it’s from a phone camera). The bird is small, brown, with white chest & legs, and has a dark – almost back – hood. I would love some thoughts on who this little chap is. Thank you! I understand images are sometimes tricky to upload so a link here to the Dropbox photos: https://www.dropbox.com/s/0bqcaau65d7sdjl/20150812_164032.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/ljz97riw8t4n06i/20150812_164037.jpg?dl=0
  7. Hello, I spotted these ducks in Van Cortland Park Lake (Bronx, New York) on July 23, 2015 around 7 PM. Can someone please help me identify these? Thanks, Neela
  8. Hi! I am new to this community. I found it because I need help identifying a bird I spotted yesterday in Central Park, New York City around 1 o'clock in the afternoon. Attached is a collage of four crude pictures I was able to snap with my phone camera. I have a field guide, but I can't quite place this little creature. My guess it that it's a Tufted Black-Crested Titmouse. Am i right? Thanks, everyone! -Peter
  9. Hi all, in light of this week's spotting of a Couch's Kingbird in NYC, I dug through some old pictures I had of a couple pretty little yellow birds I've encountered earlier in the year to see if there was any similarity. Apologies in advance, they are both already dead in the pictures, victims of window strikes on the courthouse building I found them next to. I think the pale yellow one is a yellow throated virio and the brighter one with black marks on the chest is a Canada warbler. Thoughts anyone? These are found in Brooklyn, NY. Neither bird have I ever seen in the area or unfortunately alive. Thanks!

  11. Hello everyone! So I spotted this huge bird out my window this past February. I live on Long Island, New York and have NEVER seen a bird quite like this one before. Its truly the largest bird I have ever seen in my area and I am very curious about it. Any ideas as to what he might be would be very much appreciated!!
  12. Small Grey Bird

    I don't have a photo, but I have been seeing this small grey bird around: I estimate that it's about 4 1/2 inches All grey (maybe olive grey) Bumped head kind of like the Western Wood-pewee (In fact, it looks in general quite similar) Chest and belly a lighter shade of grey with faint stripes Notched tail Call sounded to me like an awkward, "weerp?" I didn't notice any striping on the edge of the wings conical beak Seen in farmland/suburbia of Western New York Location: bushes Flock: no. Seen around other birds, but not of its same kind. Not very shy; I got pretty close.
