I had help with this one from the Facebook group What’s This Bird? Just post a bird photo and in mere moments you will have eager know-it-all birders help you identify your mystery bird! I mean that in a good way.

I shared these photos to the Facebook group, with a description of time, place and behavior, and here were the comments.
