  11. Red-masked Parakeet-actually the best photo of trip to south Florida for a few days. Not a life bird as we had seen them on previous trips south. Weather thus lighting made for rough photography most of the trip.

  12. Whenever I just want to look at some 5-star quality bird photos I do this (no kidding!):

  13. Better than any other spring! I'm out of school and into the full work swing. I think I have somewhere around 150 species. Possibly in the beginning of August, I may spend a week in the Amazon in Colombia doing some wildlife (especially birds) for a friend of mine who is writing a book about Colombia, since he is teaching school there.

  17. Found this cutie pie at Crandon Park in Miami. I call it the island of misfit toys (think Rudolph the Red nosed Reindeer). Apparently there was a zoo there at one time. When it closed and moved to another location they apparently didn't take everything. So it has a number of non-native species of birds and lizards. I don't know if this rabbit is one of them or something turned loose more recently. This is our 2nd trip to this park and the only time we saw the rabbit.

  27. Here’s another photo - is the Least Sandpiper the one w/ the yellow legs? I did some reading last night & am curious about why they are in Monterey in early July vis a viz. their migration?

  28. Very good description. They have the best calls! 😊

  29. Not only very cruel, but illegal. If a person got caught doing something like that, I’m pretty sure they’d be going to jail. Every Manatee is precious and must be protected if they are to be kept from going extinct. Maybe a Crocodile attacked it. They can be much more aggressive than Alligators.

  30. The first thing that got me was the bill. Way too thick for LaSagra’s.

  32. Yay! Thanks! I've been trying to get a photo of one of these for several years now! (This was Green Bay, Wisconsin.)

  33. There's no such thing in borealis (Eastern). They're buffy-breasted because they're recent fledglings. Light morph juvs of RTHA and FEHA share this feature.

  34. I would agree that 400mm is a good 'sweet spot'. Also, If your camera is a crop body (like the 7dm2) it means your actual shooting at 540, and if you throw an extender on you can get closer to 900mm. I would say the 400mm with a crop body is good enough for good photos most of the time.

  36. Nice! One of the few geese I will admit to calling cute.

  37. I'm not great at telling apart the two species, but the R2 appears to be slimmer than the R1, which seems to match Allen's better. The R2 in the Rufous appears to be the thickest tail feather, but in your photo the R1 seems larger than the R2 which I would say looks better for Allen's.

  38. Last one is a teal. Note how small it is compared to the mallard next to it.

  39. 🤣🤣 The exchange rate has gone up, so it's doing better than you think. Even so, I'll give it a raise.

  42. Some recent arths (did I just make up that word)? Northern or Virile Crayfish, Faxonius virilis, or so I was told at iNaturalist (from the same spot as my latest ode photos): Fireweed Borer, Albuna pyramidalis (ID from BugGuide), a clearwing moth that seems to be a wasp mimic: Tiger Beetle sp, maybe a variant of tranquebarica, or not? Eight-spotted Skimmer (*yawn*): What I think a male Common Whitetail is supposed to look like:
