    Northern Harrier was up there. Better views of Tree Swallow and Pileated Woodpecker would've been cool. i got everything I wanted apart from the Harrier,

    7th August I was on 98 species, and needed 2 more to complete my goal. I staked out the Red-headed Woodpecker spot for 30 minutes and no sign. We decided to try a place called along Pond IBA, somewhere I saw on eBird. When we put in the map, we got to a random trail going along a farm. We were...

    I didn’t try and catch the Osprey, I wanted to catch the fish 😂. I would never try to catch a bird on purpose unless it’s for a ringing session, which I can’t even do yet.

    Unknown warbler, South Cape May Meadows August 2nd.

    Hey all, another ID required please. I am not sure what this bird is, I think it’s a warbler of some sort but I honestly don’t have a clue. Don’t recall it singing or calling either. Many thanks, Ev

    6th August An excellent days birding, visited some waterfalls just 20 miles from us, and as we left I picked up Broad-winged Hawk circling the house. We arrived at the waterfall car park and had a smart male American Goldfinch. However it went very quiet for the majority of the hike. I was...

    Red-shouldered hawk? Stillwater PA just now

    Saw this hawk 5 mins ago and looks good for immature red shouldered hawk, happy to be corrected though? Sorry for back of the camera shot. Many thanks, Ev

    August 5th A fairly uneventful day, woke up early and saw a Skunk in the garden which was a new mammal species for me. Went out on a walk with some family and had fun photographing Black-capped Chickadees and a juvenile Downy Woodpecker. I walked round down the bend and heard an unfamiliar...

    Unknown flycatcher, Stillwater PA, yesterday.

    Oh neat, didn’t realise they could have that much of a yellow hue to the chest.

    Philadelphia, 11 Days Birding, July 2022-August 2022.

    No they were definitely Eastern Kingbirds lol. I think there were bugs on the water which they would catch off the surface. Perhaps fishing was the wrong word. I think I’m in the high 80s maybe 90s in terms of species on the list. Edit: I have changed the wording of how the kingbirds were...

    Unknown flycatcher, Stillwater PA, yesterday.

    Hey all, had this very interesting looking flycatcher on a post yesterday, I don’t know at all what it could be. Can’t upload actual files as I don’t have a computer with me, so it will have to be back of the camera shots. Apologies. Many thanks, Ev

    3rd of August and 4th August On the 3rd we arrived at a new house at around 6pm. Prior to this I enjoyed very good views of garden birds including Chimney Swift, Red-bellied Woodpecker, Downy Woodpecker, White-breasted Nuthatch, Northern Cardinal, American Goldfinch, House Finch and more...

    Dark eyed Junco? Stillwater Lake Pennsylvania Today.

    It was unexpected to say the least lol, got a couple other things too :)

    Anglesey Wales

    Could Savi’s Warbler be an option here? They can reel for a long time, sounding like a grasshopper warbler. They tend to be a brownish colour overall, but without a picture it is very difficult to ID based on a description (no offense).

    Dark eyed Junco? Stillwater Lake Pennsylvania Today.

    Hey all just had this bird in the deck at the place we are staying at just 10 minutes ago. It behaved a lot like a Junco but it seems very early to be one. Photo quality is very poor, so might not be ID’able. Is it a dark eyed junco? Many thanks Ev

    2nd August This was an incredibly exciting day for me since it was the day we would go to South Cape May Meadows. I added Coopers Hawk to the list which was a new garden bird as it swooped for a Mourning Dove. We arrived on site around 3pm and immediately noted Purple Martins, Osprey, Northern...

    31st of July and 1st August Firstly, I am a little behind on the posts, just a few things going on where I can't find the time to get on and upload. The 31st of July was a fairly plain day, up until around 11am, where my sister saw a Ruby-Throated Hummingbird (which was another trip tick...

    29th and 30th of July On the 29th we didn't go out much, but I added Eastern Kingbird and Downy Woodpecker to the list, and we also had a cracking male Red-bellied Woodpecker come to the feeders, and a smart White-breasted Nuthatch also put in a few appearances. 30th July We went to John...

    Day 3, 28th July A switch in plans was in order, as after checking Conowingo Dam on eBird, there didn't really seem to be many around, with only one being reported most recently. I was kindly informed about a place called Bombay Hook, so I managed to change the day and convince some of my...

    Day 2, 27th July Yesterday was a pretty good day out, although annoyingly it was cloudy until about 10am, so no golden hour then. A few new species came to the garden including White-breasted Nuthatch, House Wren, Carolina Wren, Northern Cardinal, Grey Catbird, and a big surprise in a Peregrine...

    South Cape May Meadows

    They're being regularly reported on eBird at the meadows, although numbers do seem to be dropping there.

    Sparrow ID, Philadelphia this morning.

    Hey all, I saw this bird feeding a grey cowbird chick and I don’t know what it is. Sorry for the back of the camera shot. Many thanks, Ev

    Philadelphia, 11 Days Birding, July 2022-August 2022.

    Yes I use eBird, I do look through the places that I'm looking at going to but I don't explore the wider areas since it's more of a family holiday and I don't want to drag people all over the place. Maybe it was a song sparrow instead of White-throated. Many thanks, Ev

    Juv. Gull - NE UK

    1st-summer Caspian to me, looks pretty long-legged. Do you have any other pics of it next to other gulls?

    Good morning all, I'm currently on holiday seeing family in Philadelphia, hence the reason why I am typing this at 4:25 in the morning :ROFLMAO: . On Monday, we checked into our flight and to our surprise, we had been upgraded from Premium economy to Business class. I'd never flown business...
