Hello Stephane:

I did not see the yellow bird fly so I cannot help you there. I was lucky to get photo as bird only was present a couple of seconds. Photo taken with telephoto. In fact, I could not observe the yellowish coloring until photo was blown up on computer. As always thanks for your help. -- Ed

I would appreciate any help in identifying this very small bird seen on the coast of BC this month. It is slightly larger than a humming bird, fatter, with wings that move very fast, allowing it to hover like a humming bird. I've spotted it twice, with a number of others, hovering and darting very fast. The picture is not great because it was an overcast day and the bird is hovering with rapid wing motion in a darkened treed area. I'm leaning toward a ruby-crowned kinglet but am not sure.
Thank you for any help you can provide.

Thank you Linda. That matches the markings better. I'll go to the link you suggest.

Not sure of the identity of these shorebirds in Drayton Harbor in Blaine, Wash. At first I thought they might be some type of a Plover, Dowitcher or even a Yellowlegs, albeit the legs may be covered by eel grass as they forged along the shoreline. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

:hello:Ed I don't know for certain which one it is, but in the pictures I found, it's bill was longer than like the grey plovers; but it did sort of look like a lesser yellowlegs, ~
