Agree. It looks like a Lesser Yellowlegs to me.

First time i've actually captured this little one...literally had about 5 seconds to get the shot...

I'm guessing female chickadee?

Certainly not a chickadee; it's a warbler of some sort. Female Yellow-rumped or Myrtle, I think; wouldn't bet the farm on it, though.

LOL research can quickly become frustration with how similar some birds look.

I was told this was a Bonaparte's Gull (I think I spelled that correctly) in non-breeding plumage. It was photographed yesterday on Assateague Island in Virginia. Can anyone confirm the ID?

I would concur with that ID; nicely captured!

The quickest way to get a bird ID is at the "Bird Identification Q&A" thread at birdforum.net. I usually get several posts confirming the ID within 15-20 minutes.


Canon [7D & BG-E7 grip] [T1i & BG-E5 grip] [400mm f/5.6L] [50mm f/1.8 II] [18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS]

I am on that forum also, great group of folk. Just kills me that the forum doesn't accept BBcode for pics. I get the same accurate feedback here...sometimes quicker, and people don't have to click a link ;):D

Thes ID's are always fun and challenging. Because it's a younger hawk without it's "hood" makes it more difficult.

Anyone care to take a stab at this one? Photographed about an hour ago in Virginia.

Based on what I can see here and apparent size, I'd go with juvenile Sharp-shinned and a Cardinal. ;)

taken with a 55-250 IS II. I was as close as I could get to the bird (I need a longer lens). Any idea what bird this is? Its legs are banded.
