  1. First time for me seeing the work of a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker (only heard him once before) and I am amazed by the fact that this does not kill the tree! https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/354099931

  8. I've been studying my references and the differences are so subtle, I'm befuddled. Can I get some help here? Bombay Hook NWR, Smyrna, Delaware, USA, 07-10-2021 Thanks in advance! ...Jerry

  12. I can't speak for anyone else, but I'm not worked up or protective of this. When asking for help, it's useful to use the correct terminology. In the future, you may want to ask about a bird that you don't have a picture of. I wouldn't expect a useful answer to a question about a tractor if I referred to it as an off-road vehicle.

  19. My college roommate was a huge Parrothead. I went to a concert in college with him and it was the single most fun I have ever had a concert. I could only really give you details offline though. 😎

  28. Golden-mantled Ground Squirrel, Deception Peak. I'm not an expert on animal behavior, but I suspect that some hikers who take a break up here are feeding this animal.

  30. Update: So I got a hold of the appropriate professional bird rehabilitator, left a voicemail on the answering service with the information requested, and received a call back very quickly about it. Apparently, this is a known bird that they've been keeping tabs on. It's had the hook in its mouth for at least 6 weeks, and after repeated attempts they cannot get close enough to the bird to help (she said it's very weary of people, but also fully capable of flight and seemingly doing pretty well). I think wildlife rehabilitators are pretty much the best people on this planet.

  37. These are Short-billed Dowitchers. While voice is the best ID feature, you got a nice photo of the underwing pattern on the bottom right hand bird. The lesser coverts on the underwing are barred, whereas they are white on LBDO. These are presumably all SBDO. EDIT: Tony beat me to it.

  40. They are all real species. King and Clapper use different habitat, and sound very different. Ridgeway's are pretty different in both plumage and sound from clapper, and have been genetically isolated for a long time.

  41. Yes. All are Yellow-crowned. Cool to see variation between all ages of YCNH in these photos.
