    Contopus sp. - Mexico City

    Thanks a lot, Eduardo! On top of what you said, according to eBird Western Wood-Pewee is expected to be more common than Olive-sided Flycatcher in CDMX at this time of the year. So I think it's safe to call it a WWP. (By the way, what are UTC colors?)

    Contopus sp. - Mexico City

    Hi all, I'm having a hard time trying to ID this Contopus flycatcher from Mexico City (Bosque de Chapultepec), 17 August 2018. I'm thinking either Olive-sided Flycatcher (C. cooperi) or Western Wood-Peewee (C. sordidulus). I wonder if someone is able to shed any light on this, despite the...

    Cooper's/Sharp-shinned - Washington, DC

    Hello, This immature hawk was at the National Mall in Washington, DC. There was another one calling, but I only saw this one. Is ID possible from this angle? Thanks! João

    Scaup in Washington, DC

    Hi everyone, These three scaups were spotted at the Tidal Basin, SW Washington, DC, in November. I'm attaching three photos of different angles/postures, all of which indicate Lesser to me, but since it's such a tricky bird to ID, I figured I'd better ask the experts. Thanks for any help! Joao

    Swallow, Duck, Loon - Sarasota Bay, Florida

    Sorry to revive this post, but I forgot I had taken another picture of the Scaup, from another angle. Does it help? I may be wrong, but the bill seems a bit too narrow, more like Lesser's, doesn't it? Thanks for any help!

    Tern and Gulls - SW Florida

    Hi everyone, Tom, this is the tern I was referring to, as I thought its red bill suggested Caspian, but, as Lou and Nutcracker pointed out, I guess Royals may have red bills as well! Like Dialyt, I initially thought the gull on pic #4 looked like Ring-billed, but you can clearly see the red...

    Swallow, Duck, Loon - Sarasota Bay, Florida

    These are the remaining birds from my Florida trip whose IDs I'm not sure. I'll be grateful for any help with them. #1 - Sarasota Bay off Lido Key. Common Loon? #2 - Lido Key. Bank Swallow? #3 - Longboat Key. Lesser Scaup?

    Tern and Gulls - SW Florida

    Thanks a lot, Lou! Didn't know Royal's bill color varied that much. Here are two more gulls, both in Longboat Key, which I'm fairly certain of the ID, but would highly appreciate confirmation: #6 - Bonaparte's Gull? #7 - I guess it's just a Laughing Gull, but it's the only one I've seen with...

    Tern and Gulls - SW Florida

    I'd appreciate some help on the ID of these gulls and terns spotted this month in SW Florida. #1 - North Naples. I'm pretty sure it is some immature gull (Herring? Ring-billed?), but would love confirmartion. #2 - North Naples. I wonder if the tern in the front, slightly to the right of the...

    Shorebirds ID from Sanibel, Florida

    Last week I visited JN Ding Darling NWR, in Sanibel Island, SW Florida, and, as expectedm I am struggling to identify the shorebirds spotted there. I'd appreciate some help on them! 1 - (center of the pic, among the Semipalmated Plovers). My best guess is Least Sandpiper, especially because of...

    Turdus ID - Rome, Italy

    It's settled, then: female blackbird. Thank you both, Ken and Andy!

    Turdus ID - Rome, Italy

    Hello all, This bird was photographed in Rome, Italy, in October/15. My best guess is juvenile blackbird, but as I don't have much knowledge on Palearctic birds, I'd appreciate if someone could confirm it is not some other thrush.

    IDs in Berlin, Germany

    Glad these new photos allowed a definite ID on the treecreper! Thank you both, and for the gull ID!

    IDs in Berlin, Germany

    Hi Phil, Thanks for bringing them up again. I've been reading about how to tell eurasian and short-toed treecreepers and it sure is no piece of cake. I'm uploading more angles of 'my' treecreeper. About the characteristics you mentioned earlier pointing out to short-toed: though I agree that...
