    Spotted in NYC?

    Oh wow, thanks so much!!! I was here thinking it was some shorebird because its beak is so long. Very cool! Edit: wait... woodcocks are shorebirds... learn something new every day huh.

    Bird Identification, Miami FL, United States

    Hi everyone! A few days ago in early July (very hot, most of the birds migrated up North), when I was on vacation in Miami, I saw a specific species of bird that I just can't figure out. Could somebody ID it for me? Sorry if the pictures aren't too great. Thank you so much! -JZS
