  2. While this may not be my best photo of the day, it's certainly a species we don't see too often up here... Marbled Murrelet.

  3. Gorgeous heavily-marked Northern Red-tailed Hawk. Not the greatest picture-wise but... worth it for the bird.

  5. It's winter time, which also means it's Junco time. Junco's vary a lot, not just between subspecies groups, but within them. Share your photos of Juncos. All of these photos below were taken within 10 minuets of each other, and you can see how just in the Oregon group, there is much variation.

  11. Yep, BOSS really is the food that attracts the most species, including Downies and Hairies. Dorothy here even comes to our hands for sunflower seeds.

  12. I respectfully disagree with @Charlie Spencer, @IKLland. I get woodpeckers to my seed feeders all the time. In fact, I've found the Downy and Hairy woodpeckers prefer my BOSS feeders over the suet feeders. While both Downy and Hairy will hit the suet feeders briefly, they'll linger on the BOSS feeders and eat and eat and eat and eat........ Now I'll admit that we don't put out the top of the line suet, which might change the birds preference, but they prefer BOSS over cheap suet in my area, most of the time. I like the wire mesh feeders because of their capacity for lots of birds all at once, and because the birds need to linger long enough to pull the seeds through the mesh, there also seems to be less spillage. Here's a few, of MANY, photos of the woodpeckers going to my seed feeders, including a Red-bellied Woodpecker.

  15. Not sure how rare this is, but a Great-tailed Grackle has been hanging out at a local McDonald's for the last two weeks in Portland, OR, which is a fair ways out of its normal range. Some Portland birders have nicknamed him McGrackle, and he was first seen eating a french fry. I personally find the whole thing very funny.

  20. I thought that very thing for many years. However, I now know that my subconscious recognizes differences, even though it may take me years to consciously recognize them; it's happened to/with me so many times.

  22. Yah know, I have no clue what I was on when I said that, but it must have been the real deal. Heck, I get Downys at my own BOSS feeders! (there must be some way I can blame this on COVID)

  23. I'm fairly certain this is a House Sparrow.

  24. The high pitched calls are not cardinals, but the first bird call you are asking about is. I think the high pitched ones are either a warbler or a southeastern species I am not familiar with. I also hear what sounds like a red-bellied woodpecker, although it could be something else I am not familiar with

  25. @IKLland you have to select: Rock Pigeon (feral type), selecting just Rock Pigeon or Rock Pigeon (wild type) are the ones that get flagged by eBird. This link explains it: https://ebird.org/news/rock-pigeon/ The main thing reason I guess is ‘unpure’ feral birds messing up the genetics of true Rock pigeons
