  1. Thanks everyone! It is good to be back. I used to be on Whatbird as David Case during the pre-crash days. Now I'm back as the same old me with a less formal handle - Dave Case. It's been a long time since I last posted and a long time since I got a lifer photo, so thanks for the confirms!

  3. This little bird is a sparrow or a thrush? Looks like a sparrow but behaves like a thrush. Tail up hopping around on shore line. Photographed today in mountains along Brookside, late morning. Northern California. Thanks

  5. There has been a Hummingbird near my house every year but this is a 1st for me! Every night when I came home a bird would zoom out from under the eaves near the door. Then a few nights ago my man friend says hey there is a Hummingbird stuck up in the corner under the eaves. He said he turned out the front light so maybe it would calm and find its way out. We brain stormed as to why it might be there, roosting, catching bugs, but we never thought it would be nesting... Not only nesting but doing it on the TOP OF A WINDCHIME!!! .. We are to excited!!! There are 2 eggs!! Silly girl!!! What oth

  8. No, almost definitely not, due to the range. Red-winged Blackbirds are very variable in their epaulet color. Even though most will have a yellow epaulet, some are very light yellow, very close to the white which is on Tricolored Blackbirds.

  9. Welcome to Whatbird! I have some guesses, however location would really help! When and where was this video taken? It will also help the moderator know which Identify forum to move it to. 🙂

  12. Common Nighthawks flap their wings a lot! This "flappy" behavior is an ID characteristic, as compared to soaring or strong full wing flaps of most raptors. They also have an unusual "Peeent" sound if you stop to listen. Cool Bird!

  14. In addition birds can be flagged for time of the year. A really common Yellow-rumped Warbler isn't a big deal, unless it is in the middle of winter in the North. Then it will be flagged. They also will often crank up the filters during the Backyard bird count. That way someone who participates and sees a Red-bellied Woodpecker, and calling it a Red-headed, can be flagged and asked for more clarification. They can also be flagged for a hight count. Dunlin appears on my checklist, but when I put in 25 of them it flags as a hight count in my inland county. My advice if your bird isn'

  19. Just wanted to share some pictures of the pair of painted buntings that we have living in the bamboo thicket in our backyard in Sunrise, FL. Thanks to your forum and members for correctly identifying the female painted bunting that was previously posted. Since then we knew what to look for in hopes of spotting the male. We had previously seen him several times; but, never knew just how beautiful he was or what he was because we were seeing him from a distance with the naked eye. He ap- peared to be a small, dark or black bird with a red breast.
