  1. And each of your edits added something to the quality of the post. I too see no real reason to cap the time limit to edit. If I make a tpyo that might be emburrassing, I'd like to be able to figs it even if I dont' get Intuit right a-weigh 😄 expecially sense so mini people tpye on small keyboards like sellphones those on.

  4. Although they do try to verify as many photos uploaded to Macaulay Library (from eBird) as they can, there are too many to look through, so there are lots of incorrect identifications there. Just do a search for Savannah Sparrow.... 😬 Probably not the best site for a new birder to use.

  7. Some photos from May. I especially like Red-winged Blackbirds, since they are so obvious and easy to identify. Red-winged Blackbird (female). A Plumbeous Vireo (?). Some sort of puffy bird ball. (A kind of sparrow?) Lots of Red-winged Blackbirds were trying to advertise for themselves. I love the colors on the Red-winged Blackbirds.

  10. It keeps people like me from constantly editng a single post to the point where it no longer resembles the original. EDIT Heck, I've modified this one twice in less than two minutes, not including this comment. Stop me before I kill again (okay, that's three).

  11. I like 'em, myself. Occasionally I have to walk the dog before the sun comes up. Robins are often the only birds active. I think @MerMaeve nailed it. When some people see the same species on a frequent basis, they take those birds for granted. House Finches are the largest demographic (ornographic?) at my feeders, and I affectionately refer to them as 'trailer trash'. (Yeah, I know, not PC. Some of my best parents live in trailers. )

  14. I'm leading towards Hooded, personally. The very last photo in the album gives us a decent look at the adult, and it looks best for female Hooded, IMO. It's hard to explain, but it just seems to fit Hooded well in terms of shape/structure to my eye.

  16. Interestingly, Google Images almost always labels images from All About Birds wrong. Their similar species section must confuse it.

  17. I withdraw the suggestion! I'll see if I can get it edited by a mod. Thanks!

  18. Those babies can't fly yet, and Red-breasted don't appear to nest anywhere in the state, let alone inland. So if they're Red-breasted, this is a very unusual situation. I lightened the one shot, and I can't see enough to say for sure. But I think we have to consider Hooded here as well - they're the most likely breeding merganser, and what I can tell the plumage favors them.

  19. Hmmmm.... I suppose it could be a young tanager. Any others have thoughts?

  20. 4 looks good for Phoebe to me. Also, that's definitely a Veery.

  22. Looks like a female Hooded Oriole -- no dark mask, bill's not really the right shape for Mockingbird, and there appears to be yellow in the tail Hooded Oriole Maybe female Bullock's Oriole? Yellow Warbler Orange-crowned Warbler

  23. It's 100% a Northern Flicker. Did you see the light line under the eye with binoculars or your naked eye? It looks like a photo artifact.

  24. Looks like there are no Red-breasted Merganser reports in Belgrade from July, so I doubt they would nest anywhere nearby. I think they're Commons (beak shape on the adult supports that). #5 looks like another Common Yellowthroat.

  25. Pretty sure the woodpecker is a Red-naped Sapsucker. What makes you all think Williamson's Sapsucker?

  26. Ya know, you're making a stronger case for tags. How about this, and move it after the 'Please limit your request to five birds..." paragraph? "If you think you know what the bird is, please enter its name as a tag. For multiple species, it's easier to use tags than to list them all as a lengthy title. Also, tags improve search results. You can enter the location as a tag, too. To use tags in a new post, look for 'Tags' near the top and click '+Choose'. Enter your tags separated by commas, such as 'Carolina Wren, Blue Jay, Lexington, South Carolina' (without the quotes)."

  30. They're definitely all Wood-Pewees. Looks like Eastern is the expected species in your area, based on eBird.

  33. I'm not sure if this will assist you to decide, though here is a Mallard chick : And here is a Wood Duck chick: They were both taken last Wednesday 7-11-18. I would venture a guess, but this might do as well. Joe

  35. 99% sure about this ID, but again, this was out west and new, so I want to make certain. This was taken on 05/15/18 in the Escalante National Monument on the Cottonwood Canyon Scenic Backway. Looks like a MacGillivray's Warbler to me.

  36. Well, IMO they're gonna kill him or one of the droids, and I think Chewie is the logical choice since Han already died. If they kill R2 I'm boycotting Disney

  39. Maybe we could have something under their profile like "What would you say your birding level is" e.g. beginner, advanced beginner, intermediate, advanced intermediate, beginner pro, pro....
