The closest guess I have is a Northern Mockingbird (Mimus polyglottos). It's considered "uncommon" in Newfoundland but may breed here. However, I'm not 100% sure on the ID as the only picture with the profile is a bit blurry. The mockingbirds in photos I checked have more distinct white bars on the wings. Anyone else have a guess?

Did you hear it sing?

I'm not good at shorebirds, but I'm thinking it's a Spotted Sandpiper (Actitis macularius).   (reply...)

Yeah, thinking fungus, more so. Just checked it again today. Getting harder. Turned dark grey on the 2 small spots I did touch yesterday. Weird little thing. Took a pic again today. Curios to see the development? (reply...)
