    American Pipit

    Formerly merged with Water Pipit. Note the reduced ventral streaking and buff underparts suggesting that this individual is starting to molt into breeding plumage. This species goes under the name Buff-bellied Pipit in European literature but in winter they lack the buff-colored underparts...

    in non-breeding plumage. Not a lifer (I'd seen one or two before around San Francisco Bay), but still took me a while to recognize. These may not be woodland birds, but that is where I saw this one, in a small woodsy park just a block from the beach.

    First bird I saw at Coyote Hills - second birding day of my trip. Luckily for me, s/he was running about. If s/he'd been standing still, I wouldn't have seen him/her. Even luckier for me, there were loads of pipits about and, although they were skittish, I later got some shots of them in more...

    Not a great shot, but if it is indeed the bird I have named, it's the only one I've got and it would be a lifer for me.

    More from my birdwalk with Mom, Petaluma wetlands. Walked out onto a marshy point to take a closer look at some least peeps, and spotted this pipit just a few steps away from them on ever so slightly dryer marsh.

    This is the fourth of Sunday's five "firsts" - three new (for me) swallow species, this American pipit, and a Fox sparrow. I'll post the sparrow later. Too bad this pipit, with it's lovely pastel colors (it's probably about to head north for mating season), was in a setting of...

    American Pipit - Hagersville, Ontario, Canada

    This Pipit was observed at remarkably close range foraging in a farmers field and along the gravel roadway. I think they are a rather beautiful songbird, but i don't often see them photographed.
