    Sharp-shinned Hawk? - Winnipeg, Manitoba

    Is it good for a Sharp-shinned Hawk? Looks smallish, round head. But I am not sure because I do not see them often, Cooper's are much more common. Winnipeg, Manitoba, Sept 21, 2021. Thank you.

    Sharp-shinned or Cooper's Hawk, Winnipeg, Manitoba

    Winnipeg, Manitoba, Sept 13, 2020. I rarely see Sharp-shinned Hawks. But this one seems a good candidate? No white edge on the tip of the tail. Proportionally not very long tail (?). Beak looks small-ish. Hard to reason about the head shape. It is surprising how different it looks depending...

    Buff-breasted Sandpiper ?, Manitoba, Canada

    Terrible photos but I believe enough to identify Buff-breasted Sandpiper? Buffy (well, at least not white) breast and characteristic pattern on the underwings. I just do not want to make a mistake. Manitoba, Canada. August 2020 Thank you!

    Sanderlings or Semipalmated Sandpipers, Manitoba, Canada

    Are these Sanderlings or Semipalmated Sandpipers, or maybe even two different species? August 1, 2020. Manitoba, Canada. Thank you!

    Gray-cheeked of another Catharus thrush? - Winnipeg, MB

    birdmeister, thank you! I also got a response from eBird reviewer, his suggestion is this is a Veery because of the weak spotting and buffy wash on the breast, and reddish upperparts.

    Gray-cheeked of another Catharus thrush? - Winnipeg, MB

    Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada; August 16, 2020 Lack of eye-ring makes Gray-cheeked Thrush my first guess. But this is a species that is not too often seen at that season in Winnipeg (according to eBird). Also, the pictures are not very good unfortunately, and the bird seems juvenile, so I am not...

    Nelson's Sparrow? - Winnipeg, Manitoba (voice)

    So, I have been hearing this bird for a few days, in the late evenings. I made a recording on July 1, 2020, after 11 pm. in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The sound is surprisingly loud, I was hearing it from inside the building (open window), despite the place is relatively noisy (cars passing by...

    Ferruginous or Red-tailed Hawk, Manitoba, Canada

    Thanks everyone for your input. Good to know. I am not very familiar with its morphs. Peterson and National Geographic Complete Birds of North America also mention a rufous morph. Is this still a thing, or it is basically the same as dark morph? Also, eBird photos of Ferruginous Hawks of SW...

    Ferruginous or Red-tailed Hawk, Manitoba, Canada

    I spotted this Buteo Hawk on June 2, 2019 in Manitoba, Canada, roughly the south-eastern part. At first I thought it is some unusual morph of a Red-tailed Hawk, but then I got an idea about Ferruginous Hawk. Ferruginous Hawks are nesting in the far south-western angle of the province, so where...

    Thank you everyone for your replies!

    Greater/Lesser Yellowlegs, Winnipeg, Canada

    Cannot decide between Lesser and Greater Yellowlegs. Bill seems long-ish, but not too long, it does not seem upturn, no pale base. Seen in Winnipeg, MB, Canada. Thanks.

    Warbler(s), Manitoba, Canada

    Looking at this warbler seen August 19 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. I am not sure bird on the picture 4 is the same as on 1-3 but it is possible. Wing bars rule out some species. No gray head and no breastband for Magnolia. Too much yellow on the belly for Blackburnian? Something that looks like...

    Warbler, Manitoba, Canada

    Probably a juvenile warbler, looking pretty messy. My main thought is a Nashville Warbler because of the grayish head, yellow throat and something that looks like an eyering. But what confuses me is the beak which seems too long. Could it be something like a juvenile Mourning Warbler? Seen...

    Dowitchers, Manitoba, Canada

    Thanks gentlemen.

    Dowitchers, Manitoba, Canada

    I think there is definitely a Short-billed Dowitcher on these pictures, but could the other bird be a Long-billed? Thanks. Photos taken May 21 in Manitoba, Canada.

    Sandpipers, Manitoba, Canada

    Please review my identification of sandpipers, seen May 21, 2018 not far from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Birds 1 and 2 are marked on the photos. #3 is the last picture. 1) White-rumped Sandpiper - dark legs, reddish base of the bill (not visible very well on this photo), slight streaks on...
