When posting a request for ID please use the following and be as specific as possible:

Location Taken: State at a MINIMUM, county would be nice or a wildlife refuge, park, etc.


you know, most countries don't have states or counties.

My buddy tells me it's some sort of hybrid Mallard.

Probably a hybrid or buff duck.

Re post 15: I think the second bird is the Great Kiskadee (Pitangus sulphuratus). It is called Bem-te-vi in Brazil.

Cool, thanks! Looks like you're right. Anyone have any thoughts on the other two?

Actually this one looks more like a Social Flycatcher than a Great Kiskadee. It has a more delicate look and a lower, rounder crown.

The one above it is a Gray-necked Wood-Rail I think. I don't have any books with me right now to check.

The other is one of the myiarchus flycatchers and looking at the pic makes me think Brown-crested Flycatcher but there are several species in the tropics so I'll just just leave it at that.

I'll get a book when I get home and check to be sure.


Regards,
Chuck

I'm just trying to confirm the ID on this Warbler...my thoughts are it's a Pine Warbler (I'm saying Pine Warbler because of the yellow feet).

East coast of Virginia
Taken today

Who am I? I am way smaller than a Willet. I feel like everybody can step on me, but I am very energetic and fast with a touch of cuteness. Taken in Florida at Fort De Soto. Taken on November 24, 2013. Thanks!

Great shot of a Semipalmated Sandpiper in basic (winter) plumage. In your photo, you can ACTUALLY see the semipalmation between the toes!! Nice!

OK I'll play. This one has been bugging me. The swan on the right says Trumpeter to me based on the beak shape. But what about the one on the left. I see field marks that are both Tundra and Trumpeter. How would you ID it and why?

Oh yes, This picture is to play the ID game. It certainly not for Nat Geo.

Good birding.
