Birdmeister is correct: Swainson's. Look for the buff-coloured mark that runs from the front of the eye to the bill. You won't see that mark on a Hermit.

I agree with female Black-throated Blue. That little white square at the base of the primaries is diagnostic.

I would lean slightly towards Least for the first photo. They often show that crescent shape on the back part of the eye ring, a feature I have not seen in Willow/Alder. Primary projection also looks...

They can be tricky to sort out. A few things to look for: Vesper Sparrows are very plain/drab sparrows. They are a bit oddly shaped compared to common sparrow - less plump. The white eye ring usually...

This is what you are looking for in an autumn Sanderling. Very white below, white scaling on grey above, quite a bit chunkier than the small sandpipers and stints.

Plover - American Golden or Black-bellied?

Seen in Southern Ontario on Friday. I am leaning towards American Golden because of the white supercilium and fine black stripe behind the eye, and because it doesn't look as block-headed as BBPL....

Yes, looks good for a Lincoln's. Fine streaking on flanks and breast and that buff-coloured malar stripe are showing clearly.

The third bird looks good for a dowitcher. Short-billed would be the more likely candidate in Toronto in September but the photos aren't clear enough to allow a positive ID.

Yep, my vote is also for American Herring Gull. Yellow eyes and the dusky shading on the head of a winter plumage bird.

Motmot, I would certainly agree that the bill looks like a White-necked Jacobin, and there were plenty of these birds at the site.

Where do you find information about juvenile plumages? I find that...

Hummingbird, Boyacá district, Colombia

I have been going over images from past trips and I found this one tagged as "?". The bird was seen at the El Paujil reserve in Boyacá district in December 2017.

Empids are a nightmare. There is no practical way to separate Willow from Alder unless you hear then call. In the old days they were just lumped together as Traill's Flycatcher.
