    Could we limit the number of confirmations to three? If there's some question on the ID or additional information, sure, add it. But once three people have agreed on an ID, additional agreement posts only bring resolved questions back to the top for members to wade through without adding much value. Just a suggestion. Obviously it isn't my site and I certainly don't make the rules.

    If a bird poses I take its photo, that's the rule - it doesn't have to be rare. Very last shot yesterday.

    Today my wife called that there is a male Painted Bunting in the front yard. I hurried to get my camera, but was afraid to open the storm glass door so not to scare the bunting. This pic was shot through the glass door so the sharpness is seriously diminished, but the colors did come out well.

    I was biking yesterday and birding, when I found these owlets. I wish I had brought my 600mm lens, but I couldn't bring it because I was on a 35 mile bike doing 2600 feet of elevation The parent was watching us from further up in the tree

    I saw these three baby ducks paddling together in an inlet to Lake DeSoto this afternoon. When they didn't feel threatened, they came close to shore. Near shore they were feeding on something under water, rarely bringing their heads above water. I saw no adult ducks in the area. But both Wood Ducks and Blue-winged Teal frequent this part of the lake. They look what I'd imagine baby Mergansers would look like. But I don't know what a baby Merganser looks like, and haven't seen any adult Mergansers in a while.

    When I ask about a bird, I feel much better about the ID if at least two people agree. I don't like it when only one person responds - it might mean that others aren't sure, so they don't say anything. But, yes, I agree that lots of "agreed" comments without additional information after two or three agreements is unnecessary.

    While confirmation of a suggested ID is appreciated, I think how the confirmation is expressed is more helpful than how many members express agreement. Without pointing out field marks that led to the ID, comments like the ones above aren't all that helpful. I actually find it annoying when I see a bunch of new unread posts and the majority of them are threads I have already read but someone has come along and added one more Agree or similar comment to post, after post, after post, after post, after post, after post, after post, after post, after post, after post, after post, after post, after post, after post, after post, after post, after post, after post, after post. It's annoying when something is over done, isn't it.😉 I guess it's not just the number of confirmations to a post that we need to watch, but maybe we should also watch the number of threads we add those less than helpful Agree type comments to. Just tossing out another 2 cents worth.
