    Warbler ID - Central NJ

    Thanks very much everyone! The strong yellow supercilium was most helpful for me in referencing this species as compared with yellow warbler. We get them in NJ a fair amount but this is a first for me!

    Warbler ID - Central NJ

    Taken at Manasquan Reservoir today. It looks like a Wilson's Warbler to me as the black cap seems to show just barely from this angle, the beak size and wings look right, and there was one reported there earlier today but I'd like to get some opinions on if it could be a yellow warbler. Thanks

    Virginia Rail ID Central NJ

    There have been confirmed reports of a Virginia rail at this exact location and I thought I had it in these photos but I'm leaning toward clapper rail. It looked very small in the brief views I had but the over-all details including bill length don't seem to point to Virginia. Can anyone ID...

    American Pipit ID - Central NJ

    Could it be a young european starling? I've seen some photos with contrast on the face similar to the bird, but none with light tail feathers at the edges.

    American Pipit ID - Central NJ

    I took these a few years ago in June before I had much practice with identifying birds. Is the bird an American Pipit? There were 2 or 3 in the field - habitat was right but seems there are few sightings of this species in June. Thanks

    Black-headed gull ID NJ

    There are laughing gulls at this inlet - just a few this time of year. The bill shape/ color combo and other features don't seem consistent in the photos I've checked out. But this is my first time seeing this particular species :)

    Sandpiper ID Central NJ

    Western from a different location I'd love to hear your opinion on this bird as well. Taken at Forsythe NWR where westerns are more common this time of year. The bill looks significantly longer that those in my first post and also details point to western. Sorry for the poor photo
