  2. @Seanbirds, @Birding Boy, @Colton V, since I was dragged into this, ten minutes technically is 'within 24 hours'. Maybe I should have phrased it as 'If you don't have a reply AFTER 24 hours, or if your post gets pushed to the second page, ..." Retrieving an unanswered post from the second page was my actual intent. I don't see the value in bumping something while it's still visible on the front page. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to take my soapbox apart. I'm due at the corner of Gervais and Huger to rant about street names with French pronunciations.

  5. I wanted to say THANK YOU to all who help me identify my birds in my photos. I’m not a great photographer but I have health issues and watching and taking photos of the birds in my yard here in central Florida bring me joy. Sounds crazy, according to some friends, but it is a calming influence. So, thank you so much!!! Y’all rock. 💗💗💗

  6. This one was building a nest right by a pathway. And I mean right by the pathway to the point someone could probably brush into it if they were too far over. I think she came to her senses and built it somewhere else as I couldn’t find any evidence of a nest when I returned a month or so later.

  7. That’s a Pied-Billed Grebe, notice the round, squat appearance, short neck and stubby bill. Edit: And sniped once again by @Aaron

  9. Most of my distance "learning" consists of looking at this website, scrolling through Instagram on my phone, or staring out my window at the bird feeders. And snacking like a glutton.

  10. The first gull is western, most of the gulls in the second picture are Westerns as well, the third bird is Brewer's Blackbird, we do have grackles though.

  11. Immature LITTLE Blue Heron, changing from immature white to adult blue? The duck appears to have a strong white eye ring; female Wood Duck? EDIT: Semi-sniped by @Avery, but it was just a glancing shot.

  12. The heron isn’t a great blue, since it would mean that duck would be MASSIVE.

  15. When I was in high school they changed the typical lettering grades so that A—-> E (exemplary) B—> C (competent) C—> A (adequate) D—> B (basic) Made absolutely no sense. Except maybe it made students more likely to get straight A’s. Don’t know what is wrong with the basic letter grades and a percentage...

  16. This is actually a Mountain Bluebird, note the sky blue color on the tail and wings, the gray head and breast, and the white eye-ring.

  20. Not all that much, but it does provide a place for and possible IDs of birds of which many eBirders seem unaware. There is a single such bird that has been at a hotspot location in the Denver area for years that keeps getting reported as GWFG.

  21. Found some pictures of a cowbird that looked like that, and indigo bunting, which is what made me think that could be what it was. Definitely a cowbird, as it has that bicolored bill.

  25. There was a mature White Ibis nearby.

  26. Agree with Wood Duck, but why not imm. White Ibis? Then the size comparison with the duck would make sense (Ibises aren't all that big).

  30. 1. I have no experience with juvenile "real Iceland Gulls", but this look like a light Theyer's, so I would say it's good. 2. Ring-billed 3 Lesser Black Backed Gull 4. Lesser and Greater-blacked Backed Gull 5-6 Those don't look like Murre's to me. I have no experience with them, but I suggest Razorbill.

  32. there’s not really enough information in these photos to fully ID all these birds. I think the bird on the left in 1 and the bird in 3, and probably others, COULD be Glaucous-winged x Herring... the issue is that a definitive answer just cannot be given

  37. What’s funny about that is I’m currently in an ecology class that’s all online and we had a lab project about granivorous bird foraging. We had to measure out bird seed and place them in high predation and low predation zones and watch birds for about a month. We had to count the amount of vigilant acts, time spent at feeder, and amount of food left after 60mins (GUD)... Also a few other behaviours but my group only chose to analyze those 3. Turns out birds significantly have more vigilant acts in higher predation zones (duh) than lower predation zones, but our error bars overlapped

  40. Agreed; ABDU. And, like Mallards can have, this bird has fairly extensive black on the bill.

  41. Agreed. Pretty straightforward female ABDU.
