Can You Identify This Bird?

What is the species of this bird?

What is the species of this bird?

Hi, my post is once again about a bird seen at Fort De Soto Park in west central Florida.  An expert who saw it said he was not sure whether it was a year round genus or a genus rare in this area, so I am only asking if you know the genus and possible species.  For many birders, there is no love lost for this bird. -SLB 

 

Can you ID this bird despite poor photo quality

Hi, I am hoping someone can ID this bird based on its shape, possible color and the fact that it was seen April 17, 2014 at Fort De Soto on the west central coast of Florida during spring migration. -SLB

Identification of a Warbler during March migration in Florida

This identification has me vacillating between a Yellow-throated Warbler and Northern Parula, both of which are passing through my area of Florida in their migration.  This photo was taken at Fort De Soto, Gulf Coast, central Florida March 18, 2014.  Any help would be much appreciated.  -.SLB

Warblers or Vireos

Here are two photos that were taken March 18, 2014, at Fort De Soto park’s North Beach area.  Warbler or Vireo?  They appear (but could be the same?) to be different birds, but the same species.  Is there a green band on the leg of one?  What species?  Thanks for all the help.  SLB

What is this bird flying over the Gulf of Mexico on a windy, chilly day

What is this bird that was flying over the Gulf of Mexico?

I went to Indians Rocks, Gulf of Mexico, central Florida Feb. 15 on a very windy day when it was a bit chilly.  I was hoping to see a couple of pelagic birds.  Is this one?  

I also saw this bird on the beach today, and I think I know what it is, but am not positive.  It was running back and forth in a zig zag motion in the low surf.  Shorebirds in their non-breeding plumage can be flummoxing for me. -SLB
