  3. Tough act to follow! Here is one you are supposed to look for on the ground, not on a wire.

  4. this from another "luddite" - 70+ years old and just getting into birding the last oh 5 years or so. I do not have a smartphone but see the day when one will be required to survive ! I do have a dumbphone and get kidded about it all the time, ( oh be the way..it worked in parts of Canada where the smart phones didnt...could be the carrier but...grinning. That said I have not found field guides of any type all that useful in the field...perhap I am going about the wrong way but find taking pictures then opening them on my computer the best way for me to ID then....I do use a "field guide" then and the Internet...in the comfort of my home - there will be times when even that does not work so am doubtful that a mini book would work. I found Whatbird and think that the most amazing thing ever. Can post a picture and in minutes (usually) I have an answer that I then check once more on my less that field handy "field guide" Soooooooooooooooo guess I would say. I for one would not use a mini book field guide as I do not find the present less then field handy books useful to me. But as a last thing I would like to add that I did not pick up on any disrespect from the administrator...my wife does tell me I have the sensitivity of a rock but still..

  9. Agree with Northern Flicker for the first bird. I don't see anything that suggests Cackling for any of the geese in the second photo, but they are kind of difficult to see.

  11. I'd say yes to Cackling. The neck seems short enough, and the bill is very stuby.

  14. I was going to make a similar comment to Akiley....4th picture and others include a goose that does not look like the others. larger bill for one thing - could it be just a canada goose

  17. Looks like avian conjunctivitis, a bacterial infection that affects birds, usually around their eyes. Seems to be most common in House Finches, but can be seen in most any other birds also. https://www.google.com/search?q=avian+conjunctivitis&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjki4iKp9neAhXDiVQKHbAdC2gQ_AUIDigB&biw=1262&bih=602&dpr=1.25
