  6. I had considered a "Bird Sex" thread like this one but thought a title like mine would need a disclaimer explaining that it wasn't about sex.

  10. @MeInDallas That is a Sharp-shinned Hawk. Peregrines have dark cheeks, longer wings, gray undersides, thinner bands on the tail, and yellow skin around the eyes.

  11. Maybe a Tufted Titmouse. They have a lot of calls, but here is a link to the one I am thinking about: https://www.xeno-canto.org/407931

  15. Yeah, but I was driving around and stuff, not just sitting there at the water for five hours. I had hoped the Western Kingbird would come back, but no dice. Did get Brewer's Blackbirds, though, which I needed for the life list, so it wasn't all for naught.

  16. Congrats, by the way! I was out there from just before 9 a.m. until around 2, freezing my tail off. The wind was bad!

  20. The location was Southern MN. It was all a darker gray with a slightly darker mark on its head. We get indigo buntings here for a brief time...fyi.

  22. Agree with both IDs. Note the reddish tones in the wings of the Kiskadee, and the larger bill, compared to the Social Flycatcher you posted before. Did you hear the tanager sing? They make lovely music!

  23. If it's singing every morning like clockwork it could be a Carolina Wren. Here's one that sings in fours: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=7GLIFUtXj2M Black capped Chickadees can sing in the high-low pattern that you describe: https://birdsna.org/Species-Account/bna/species/bkcchi/introduction#MenuSiteNav

  24. I was thinking I posted this earlier this year, just before the site crashed. Don't remember for sure if I did, or if the site crashed before I got any replies......or....... old age catching up with me!!??!!

  33. This is from less than a year ago. I had recently retired and had bought a good camera for my traveling and so I could try out wildlife photography as a hobby. I am sitting at my kitchen table reading the user manual when a hawk landed in a tree in my back yard. I really had no idea what I was doing, but I fired off a couple of shots with my new camera. All in all, it was not a terrible picture. But in my haste and confusion with operating the camera, I did not get it fully in frame and cut off its tail! Other than some test shots at my kitchen wall, this was the first "real" picture with my new camera.
