  1. In hindsight, I regret the part of the 'How to submit...' that encourages the use of tags. I don't know that they make searches any easier, since the text of post is also searchable. They seem to cause more confusion than they're worth.

  2. BHNU do have a white area on the nape of the neck. I think what we're seeing in this photo is the result of a combination of the angle of the photo and the angle of the bird's head.

  3. The stranded streaked sandpiper was standing striking the other stranded standing streaked sandpiper! Say that about 20 times real fast!

  9. Shorebirds are round-bodied birds that make their living picking food from on or under the surface of wet areas - beaches, marshes, wetlands, etc. Some have ridiculously long bills. The name is misleading, since they're often seen far from the ocean. https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/browse/taxonomy/Charadriidae https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/browse/taxonomy/Scolopacidae But gulls are often found far from water too. Respectfully, just because you've seen them only at the shore doesn't mean they're not other places.

  12. No worries! I think Canada Geese are cool birds so I have a ton of photos of them. Plus it makes up for the ones I missed out on, lol! PS: I keep a list with dates for each week if you ever want to double check your selection for the week. 🙂

  20. Haha. With due respect to the birding community, it's a bird, and I see it exclusively at the shore. Educate me, what would be more appropriate term? 🙁

  25. Welcome to Whatbird!!! Pine Warbler. Nice shots!!

  26. The bird's plumage is fresh, so this must be a juvenile, thus not, yet, identifiable to sex.

  27. A very tentative confirmation based only on photo comparison and no experience. Undertail colors look good. Smudgy transition from blue-gray to yellow looks good for female / immature. Lifer?

  28. Respectfully, for a six-year-old, I'd go with something much simpler. I'd go with a regional guide, something specific to the state or area she lives in, with big pictures. For binos, a six-year-old has pretty small hands and is still developing fine muscle skills. I'd accept that she'd probably going to break them regularly, and go with something inexpensive. Check this list of binos for kids: https://www.google.com/search?q=binoculars+for+children&safe=active&biw=1202&bih=832&tbm=shop&ei=izTsYIucCM_mkgWP0aHgBQ&oq=binoculars+for+children&gs_lcp=Cgtwcm9kdWN0cy1jYxADMgIIADIICAAQFhAeEBgyCAgAEBYQHhAYMggIABAWEB4QGDIICAAQFhAeEBgyCAgAEBYQHhAYMggIABAWEB4QGDIICAAQFhAeEBgyCAgAEBYQHhAYMggIABAWEB4QGDoKCAAQsQMQgwEQQzoICAAQsQMQgwE6BAgAEBhQ4oUCWIusAmC-uAJoAXAAeAKAAaUKiAGWOJIBDTItMi4zLjMuMy4xLjGYAQCgAQHAAQE&sclient=products-cc&ved=0ahUKEwjLjYCmw93xAhVPs6QKHY9oCFwQ4dUDCAs&uact=5

  30. In spite of the name Carolina Wrens are commonly found as far north as southern New England, so your bird didn't wander very far to get to your feeder

  31. I'm glad its a SSHA because they are few and far between. But I'm not please with my ability (or inability) to distinguish them from COHA. I could do as well by flipping a coin.

  41. #5 is a Pectoral Sandpiper. Notice the structure, size, and dense stranding on the breast that contrasts with a clean white belly. And it’s legs aren’t black. The rest look like SESAs from what I can tell when looking on my phone.

  42. Hi, Young Birders! My granddaughter will turn 6 this fall and already has a keen interest in birds. She has asked for a bird book. I had gotten her a pair of small binoculars, but they broke this weekend. 😞 I really want to foster and encourage her interest in birds. What books, equipment, courses, trips, events, etc, can you all recommend? Thank you.
