  1. Bad day to be a vole. Watched this Great Blue Heron catch and wallow the vole whole!

  3. I felt the OP and Winter in particular merited a response from Southern Ontario (ski hills have been open for a week). I don't just shoot birds. Thanks for all the assistance over the past few weeks and Happy Holidays.

  5. I agree with the others, hummers are Anna’s and Allen’s/rufous

  6. I have no objections to snow itself. It's the accompanying cold temperatures that 'merit a response', as @RobinHoodsaid. My response would likely get me tossed out of here.

  7. Gorgeous! I'll take all of the "white nonsense" I can get in all of its wonderful forms. And also a hint of frostbite and a touch of snow blindness. Alas here in GA no such luck. Family in NC and VA made out quite nicely:

  8. Hi Folks, It's been awhile since I posted, but I'm really thankful that the site was brought back after the crash. Does anyone have any thoughts for these ID's. 1. I had posted this pic of what I thought was a Merlin, but someone recently said they thought it was a hawk and not a falcon. Spotted in Jan. 2018 at Kenneth Hahn State Park, CA. 2. The Hummers were seen in Cambria, CA and Culver City, CA in June 2018. 3. The Warbler was seen on the Blue Ridge Parkway in NC in May 2018 4. The Woodpecker was seen in Cambria, CA in September 2018 Thanks for looking! 🙂

  12. Gorgeous! Thanks for the wintry namesake shout-out! Enjoy your holiday and the quiet beauty up North! I’m a smidge jealous as I can’t wait to get some skiing in!

  13. Thank you so much. It was taken in London, Ontario yesterday afternoon. I will post location the next time.

  14. Welcome! That is a young Red-tailed Hawk. The band of streaks across the belly and the dark patches at the front edge of the underside of the wings (patagials marks) are good ID marks. It is a juvenile because of the pale eyes and brown barred tail. Remember to include location next time!

  15. I don't think this is any kind of bird at all. It may be a mash up of "bird sounds." I think I hear a little American Goldfinch but nothing that sounds like an Eastern Wood-Pewee. Television/media is notorious for adding bird sounds without giving much thought into it. If you watch a Western and you see a shot of a Vulture or even an Eagle you will hear the classic song of a Red-tailed Hawk. My favorite is the bird sounds the piped into golf tournaments. If the PGA doesn't do any research on what birds might be heard on a Hawaiian golf course, why should anyone care about background birdsong in a fantasy video game. At least the Hunger Games got creative with their "Mockingjay."

  19. I have been chasing and photographing birds on the SE coast for nearly five years. I live on a barrier island off the coast of SC. In all that time, the one bird that has been my nemesis, and on my "life wish list" every year is the European Starling. Yes, I am about the only person in the world that has never seen one, or at least can't prove it with a photo, lol. I was visiting VA last month and saw this while on a drive to Chincoteague Island. I have about 125 birds on my "life list". Please tell me I can cross "European Starling" off my list? Finally? Thanks! Look at him. He looks like he's mocking me 😂

  21. Male and female Evening Grosbeaks with the 2 females in the middle. While I see them almost yearly when I travel up north, I don't think I have seen Evening Grosbeaks at my feeders since I took this photo back in 2012...until today when a single female showed up on our platform feeder for some sunflower seeds.

  22. Yes, both Downies. Most Downies have the black spots on the white tail feathers and Hairies do not, at least here in the east. Hairies are larger, about the size of a Red-bellied Woodpecker. You would probably notice the difference in size at this distance.
