    Song Sparrow?

    I was told that this bird, shot in Oceanside NY in August, is a Song Sparrow. The beak looks more massive than those on other Song Sparrows which are common here.
  2. So I have posted this picture before on another forum, and I got some votes for Eastern Screech-Owl and some for Northern Saw-Whet. I figured I would give it a shot here. This bird visited my backyard in August (LI, NY) on at least 2 occasions minutes before nightfall. One night it perched on my fence in a few different places eyeing the feeder (neither location I would call a good hiding spot). Another night it perched on the tree limb above the feeders, maybe hoping a mouse would pass by, who knows. When I saw it the first time, I thought it was odd that the robin that usually sits on the fence was out so late. Turns out it wasn't the robin. 3spoopy5me. I approached the bird (not a good idea, I know now) and was able to get within 10 feet. Still didn't know what I was looking at, and really only remarked its yellow talons (do owls even have yellow feet?) It flapped away a little bit back onto a tree limb. The wings had quite the flap, reminding me of a crow almost. I really didn't think of an owl until it did a few circular head movements judging my distance up in the tree. I've seen pics of a Northern Saw-Whet owl and even though this bird was small, it just looks too damn tiny. Also it would be a very rare sight. The only two other realistic options, based on ebird sightings, are Eastern Screech and Great Horned (Unless I am completely misidentifying this bird). There's no way this is a GHO. Any other owl would be an extreme rarity. 1st pic is just to show how the color of the bird appeared to me- white and brownish. 2nd pic is the bird with no filters. 3rd pic is a closeup of the same shot run through a suite of filters. Appears to show facial disc and possible tufts?? 4th pic is the original with brightness, saturation, and contrast blasted. https://imgur.com/a/H0hYc Any ideas?
  3. Date of Photo: July 16, 2017 @ 5:06 PM Location: Greenlawn, Suffolk County, NY 11740 Bird taking tree nut from feeder. I am unsure if this is a Black-capped, Carolina or a hybrid Chickadee. The bib noticeably extends to the top of the chest and down to the nape of the neck. There were five Black-capped chickadees present, but the photographed bird instantly stood out. Any help would be appreciated. https://www.flickr.com/gp/9772325@N04/0Hg7UQ https://www.flickr.com/gp/9772325@N04/70U090

    Seen today on Long Island

    Hi, While walking in a field on the south shore of Long Island, NY, I came across the bird pictured in the attached photos. It was sitting on eggs, also seen in the photos, and it (naturally) tried to frighten me away with a nice display of its wings. I've tried a few bird identification websites, but perhaps I am entering the information incorrectly; the answers I am getting don't match. Could someone please help me identify this bird? Thanks!
  7. Can someone please ID this bird for me. I am in Upstate NY. It had what looked like its mate with it the other night. The one it was with was yellow, kind of looked like a yellow Finch. Thanks in adnance for the help.
  8. Hey guys, this bird was spotted on an apartment building fire escape a few miles north of New York City. It looks like some type of hawk and was spotted here multiple times. The apartment is less than a mile from the Hudson River if that helps ID this big guy. Thank you!
  9. Saw this hawk yesterday noon while pulling into driveway in Long Island, NY. It was really large, at least a foot tall. At first we thought it was an owl, or seagull because it was so large and fluffy. It flew off very slowly and gracefully after walking in a small circle on the lawn and staring my kids and I down. What kind of hawk is this?
  10. HI, any idea what this is? I saw it in July in the Allegany State Park, NY. thx
