  8. Great point about the immature vs. female. It's one of those assumptions I'm trying to stop myself from making. Either way, it's a lifer, and a nemesis to boot!

  11. I was curious too. http://www.birds.cornell.edu/crows/birdname.htm Dictionary.com has the little speaker symbol beside the word allowing you to hear someone actually saying the word. https://www.dictionary.com/browse/phainopepla

  12. Yeah, I agree with Double-crested juvenile (due to the lighter breast shade.) If it was a Great, a juvie would have a white belly, and an adult would be blacker and I think you would be able to make out some white on the face. I don't think there are any other cormorant options there.

  13. I knew it!!!! And that is why I want photo proof of everything I've seen 🙂 I sometimes wonder how accurate some sightings are.

  15. I agree with American redstart. The more important question is what did yall catch?

  16. I don't see any scoters in the first pic, there's at least one Gadwall, maybe an American Wigeon and some shovelers.

  18. I saw a Chevy Suburban in a handicapped space at Wal-mart. That doesn't mean every vehicle I'll ever see in that space is a Suburban.

  19. Pretty sure I finally got one earlier this month in Massachusetts. I'll post it for confirmation later in the week. PUFI has been my nemesis for three decades; I'll hold auditions for a new one.

  20. So with that all black head, I'm assuming this is a juvie male transitioning into adult plumage? From what I read, they gradually become all black over their first year. I've seen a lot of Phainopeplas here in San Diego county, and in Seaz, and never saw one in transition like this. Cool!

  22. I think I'm seeing a white undertail on the left there, some faint wing bars, and a pale supercilium, so I'm going to say Tennessee. But man, it's a tough angle, and I've seen hundreds of Orange-crowned and only one Tennessee, so best to have others weigh in. Also, remember to put where you saw it, you know, range and all that. I will also note that the pic seems dark, like on a cloudy day, which is in my opinion making the bird look a little yellower than it actually is.

  23. Here's a bump. But it looks right to me.

  24. Looks like an Orange-crowned to me. Broken eye ring, yellow undertail coverts, no apparent wing bars, short dark eyeline, thin unmarked tail (which appears to be missing some feathers) all lead me to that ID. The apparent bar on the tail looks like a shadow or a twig showing through in the first two pics.

  27. I don't see any of the warm tones that would suggest Cinnamon. I'd stick with Blue-winged here.

  29. Eastern Wood-Pewee. A Least Flycatcher would have a much shorter primary projection, a smaller beak, stronger wingbars, and prominent eyerings.

  31. This axis stag was cruising my fence line. He had better confine his wanderings within the residential community in which my home is located. The community forbids discharge of a firearm. As an exotic species he is not protected by Texas game laws and regulations. A farmer or rancher would shoot him, field dress him, and pack him into the deep freeze in little more time than it took me to write this paragraph!

  32. I would go with Green-winged as well. The overall coloration and proportions fit the description.

  33. The notorious vagrant and squatter, known as I. M. Squirrel, was served an eviction notice and in due time was evicted at some considerable cost to the householder. No injury to the miscreant and his family was recorded because live traps and one-way gates were employed in the eviction process.

  34. A noble resident on my doorstep. I think she came in search of moths. Her girth indicates she was successful! Ladies and gentlemen, may I present the Duchess D'Mure, Lee Hawty.
