  5. "quit" is a morpheme that means "bird" as in bananaquit and grassquit At least, that's how I understand it.

  9. One of the perks of the northeast! I think my record is 13 species in one location, with the potential for about 4 more

  10. Black-and-white-banded secondaries leave you no option other than Red-shouldered. The vertical white stripe on the upper sides of the males leave you no option but Green-winged Teal. Nope. You "shot" the correct bird: ML277999581 American Goldfinch Macaulay Library

  14. There's a sod farm a couple of counties over that's huge for migrating shore birds, because they keep the sod well watered all year. It's a family run business but the owners are birders. Check in at the office and stay on the roads and you're more than welcome. https://ebird.org/hotspot/L301106 This one is the county recreation department's mega-complex of soccer fields. You'd think a monotonous environment like that wouldn't have much, and you'd be right as far as the fields themselves. But it has mixed woods surrounding most sides, a swampy, heavily wooded drainage creek down the middle, running to a pond dammed for runoff control (so new it doesn't even show on Google maps yet). One of the best warbler spots in the county, with Goodwill and the Ford dealership on the north side, and the county school bus shed on the south. https://ebird.org/hotspot/L10042302 Can you tell I love this topic? Don't get trapped into thinking you have to go to a hot spot. There are so many places that aren't reported even as Incidental simply because nobody's thought to spend five or ten minutes. I've marked lifers out of 3-acre farm ponds and beaver-dammed marshes where I just parked on the shoulder. Cemeteries, waste water settling ponds, commercial fishing docks, under-developed industrial parks; runoff-control retention ponds are one of the best things that ever happened to birding. That's what I love about this: you can do it LITERALLY anywhere outside.

  15. https://ebird.org/hotspot/L8283225?yr=all&m=&rank=mrec I'm proud to say that I'm the one who nominated this spot. 125 species in almost exactly two years, exactly 10 birders. Like @floraphile, I had one of the top birders in the county notice my checklists and head over to check it out. The guy routinely turns in 40+ species as opposed to my usual 15 to 20. I soothe my ego by telling myself he's retired and can get there in the mornings far more often than I can. I've bumped into him at a couple of other spots but I really want to hit this site with him. I love working the unusual spots!

  19. No one needs to know! ? I like that I'm the only one who has submitted checklists from my hotspot (and it is actually a hotspot).

  21. Decoys? I was almost fooled by Mallard decoys a couple days ago, but I noticed they looked really compact and colorful and were just floating in a weird way.

  23. Southern Kentucky got a bit of snow today and I think every bird in a 5 mile radius showed up at the feeders. So, in honor of our first flurries of 2020, Finches in the snow...

  25. Recently I started to feed the squirrels so that they wouldn't compete for food with the birds. I found a funny squirrel feeder, It is a Horse Head feeder of Accoutrements. Watching them go nuts over the feeder was pretty funny. We laughed so hard, and it became an instant hit for the kids. The head is hollow inside, and you can put a variety of nuts and seeds to attract them.

  26. It was to dark to take a good picture. But we found a new neighbor last night. I relocated it in a tree today and it has a really good hiding place.

  30. After 5 years of living at our old place, this is what I woke up to the first morning after moving to our new home. The Grand River is right across the road, making this place look like it's going to be an even better birding spot than the old place.

  33. Ruby-crowned for me. I think I can see the black bar under the second wingbar and it has a thin bill. Plus, it’s feet don’t look blue.
