With appearances in mid-Atlantic as well as states neighboring NY, it is time
to give a bit of attention, & cameras at the ready, for ‘stray’ hummingbirds of
various species, now about as likely if not more so in the east, as our
breeding, summer Ruby-throateds, most of which have departed at
Nice surprise to see three Pine Siskins at my feeder in Douglaston with several
goldfinches and house finches.

I ran it by the boffins on the Facebook Advanced Bird ID forum and they
came down firmly on the side of Least Flycatcher.

A friend of mine just sent me a picture of an Evening Grosbeak at his
feeder today. He lives in Wading River close to the LI Sound.
Unfortunately he does not want any visitors but we wanted to let you know
that one was found. Good birding.

Out of curiosity, what made them so certain it was a Least Flycatcher?

Rounded, blunt primary tips as opposed to Hammond's generally pointed ones.
Projection not long enough for Hammond's. Molt fits better with Least
(which molts on winter grounds, whereas Hammond's molts on summer grounds).
Quantitative analysis of the primary spacing using measurements with imageJ
Hmm. Quantitative analysis on those pictures? Who conducted it?
Curious as to what NYSARC committee members think. Any comments?

A nice lady told me that Loggerhead Shrike was reported seen in
Marine Park Salt Marsh this morning. Please, don’t tell anyone that I wrote
this email about it. I am not supposed to tell.
Apparently the bird was Northern Shrike as it was reported to
eBird. Probably, there was some mis-ID at the beginning. Sent using Zoho
