Five of these birds popped up from the grass in the Goldstream Provincial Park estuary. My camera had a really hard time getting focus on them so this was the best photo I could get using manual focus as they landed. Might be a bit of a stretch, but can anyone figure out what these are from the photo? Image

Cheers,

Hi Thomas,

These could be American Pipits based on the brown overall colour and white outer tail feathers that are showing. If there were pipits at Goldstream, they would be in the estuary scrubby bushes, grasses and thistles.

Did you see any other details for these birds? Head and body markings and colours? Did you hear and sounds or calls?
