  6. All right, it took a little bit longer than I though it would, and I even learned somethings myself along the way. Here we go... The Winged LEGO Guide to Aging Gulls with a focus on the large white-headed gulls. Sooo how long can you make one of these posts anyways? First I think it is important to clarify some age nomenclature. You might see gulls described as 1st winter, 1st summer, 2nd winter, etc. A 1st winter gull is in its first winter after hatching.

  8. This is Ozzie (or maybe Harriet) who lived in the trees down the street. I thought they moved out when some eagles took up residence in the same trees. But the eagles moved on and now the owls are back. I heard them hooting from the back yard the other day so I decided to take another look.

  12. From Cornell The "Ipswich Savannah Sparrow," a subspecies that breeds on Sable Island, Nova Scotia, is nearly 50 percent heavier than most other Savannah Sparrow subspecies. It is the palest race, and is found in winter in sand dunes along the Atlantic Coast. It was formerly considered a separate species.

  18. Loved seeing all the irruptive species this year. We got Red Crossbill, Bohemian Waxwing, Pine Grosbeak, Pine Siskin, Red-breasted Nuthatch, Evening Grosbeak, and Common Redpoll all in our yard. The Pine Grosbeaks were probably the most exciting. I think this was the third year in my entire life that I've gotten to see them.

  21. I was in an outdoor bar having a drink after a hot day of birding in South Africa and I looked up and saw a Barn Owl watching us. I told the bartender in surprise that there was a Barn Owl watching us from up above. He smiled, matter of fact like' No sir, that is our Bar Owl. It comes here and waits every night for closing when there will be mice running around looking for crumbs. Bar Owl!!!!!!!!!!

  24. @MacMe, great bird! Give a man an app and it will identify birds for him. Give a man a field guide and he'll learn to identify birds for himself. Then he'll go on bird forums, babble about the importance of field guides, and act like he knows what he's talking about.
