Help I.D This Bird I photographed Today

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Anthony747, Sep 18, 2005.

  1. Hi All!
    I was shooting in Sandy Hook, NJ this morning and I stumbled upon this little guy showing off for me. I looked him up in my bird book and it kind of looks like a Yellow-rumped Warbler in winter plumage. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks, Anthony

    Shot the the D70, 70-200mm VR, TC-1.7

    I have no clue what he is, but he is pretty little guy.

    How in the world do get those little birds. I only have one hiding in the grass. A dove and a Mocking bird and a crow, for small ones.
     

  3. Hi Gale! I got pretty lucky with him...it was almost like he wanted me to photograph him.

    Not sure Anthony, but it looks like an American Pipit.

    Nice shots in any case. :smile:
     
  6. Hi Flew! I looked up your suggestion and the American Pipit doesn't look like it likes New Jersey...mostly out west.

    Thanks, Anthony

    Anthony, according to my Sibley Guide to Birds, the American Pipit ranges well into your area.
     
  8. Thanks Frank, The bird ID mystery continues!

    I'd go with Palm Warbler in fall plummage.

    I do know not to put too much faith in Sibley's maps. Been caught out that way before. :)
