  1. Today--a Swallow-tailed Kite. With a 4ft wingspan these are sizeable birds. They are amazingly agile and graceful.

  11. Went out to my favorite birding spot last weekend. Here's a hummingbird. Is it a Broad-tailed (this is in Flagstaff, Arizona)? Here's a female Yellow-headed Blackbird. I've seen a bunch of males (to be fair, they are quite distinctive), but this is my first time noticing one of the females. I'd never seen one of these before. It's a Sora, and it ran off into the reeds practically as soon as I took this picture.

  13. I can confirm the 'Security Exception' behavior. Since it's -just- an expired certificate, I flung the door open and heedlessly charged on in.

  14. I mispoke about the morning sounds and late summer sounds. They are Cicadas not Katydids.

  27. OK...very good. I am reading of brown-headed cowbird now. i am not liking what i read so far! the male look cool , though. There;s behavior of laying eggs in other nests is bad sounding , but they are native bird to usa so it is cool. you and others are right with identification, akiley. it looks like it to me. I love having this website to check with experts! Connecticut has so many birds! yes, westport and surrounding towns seem too nice to think some person or people stole away my clothing. maybe it was just mistake. Speedo is not good to wear in usa anyway i am finding. i will blame the cowbird for my naked feeling . ha ha ha I will come here with more bird questions....thank you all. Happy to learn birds of america now.

  29. I went into the kitchen and looked out the window to see a Cooper's Hawk and a Squirrel at a standoff. There was another squirrel and a cardinal nearby. I am not sure why the hawk didn't attack the squirrel. If you know, let me know.

  30. This is a juvenile Cooper's. and it's probably not confident enough to tackle a squirrel. I've seen them fly towards a squirrel and the squirrel would duck under the limb and come up behind the Cooper's, chatting away and fussing at it. The squirrel actually seemed to be enjoying the encounter!! I don't know that even an adult Cooper's would take on a squirrel. They might if they were very hungry and there was nothing else around, but I've never seen an adult Cooper's go after one.
