  4. This is ridiculous! You answered before I could even post my question.... are you hiding in my basement? Thanks!

  5. Yes, and it's "Canada Goose," not "Canadian Goose." I've no idea why the difference in construction for species such as Canada Goose and Canada Warbler, when it's American Crow and European Starling and Eurasian Bullfinch and Australian Shelduck.

  6. I wasn't implying you were stupid or lying. We get a lot of ID requests from people who took photos on trips. We get a lot of photos that people took months or years ago. We have members who include their state or other regional identifier in their account name. It looks like many of your photos so far are from this spring. It's possible you live in Vermont and had made a trip to GA several months ago. It's possible you'd lived in GA and had moved to VT since the spring. No offense intended.

  9. @Charlie Spencer The photo with just the Kingbird is the "5ft away" one. The ones with the Eagle, I was just walking back to the car from taking some pics of the Eagles earlier and just looked up and saw these guys flying at me, flew right over my head.

  10. @Kevin@Peromyscus@Ed hogg Thanks everyone! No wonder I couldn't find it looking up finches, sparrows, any birds with red crowns. Crazy I was just unknowingly photographing these guys from 5 feet away yesterday and find out today that they attack birds 15x their size 😄

  12. Sorry for knee jerk (operative term) reaction. You are obviously a well respected member, so I was just taken aback that there would any doubt of the posted location.... Sorry.

  14. HI, and welcome to Whatbird! Are the stripes running the length of the body, or across the width? These may be Brown Thrashers. https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Brown_Thrasher If this isn't a match, can you compare your birds to this one and tell us how they're different? Thanks!

  15. Just because someone REPORTED such does not necessarily make it so.

  16. You may see some young ones too. They're shaped like the parents, but are duller than the females and have white spots. Like Mom and Dad, they'll come to your suet feeders too. Mine seem to visit the bird baths more than other species.

  17. Snowy. Note how the legs on a juv little blue are all greenish yellow, and snowy has only some of it being that color. Also note the color of the facial skin: little blue juv:https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/45789831 snowy egret: @Birding Boy’s photo, https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/326786701

  19. @Seanbirds Thank you sooooo very much for helping me get the herps in my herps file all ided!!! Below is a celebration of not just getting them ided but also getting them counted to create a herps life list. This is also thanks to @Seanbirds for encouraging me to create a life list. That life list now sits at 58 species. I still have not gone through all my dated files so there may be a few more but it should now be easy to keep the file organized...Thank you Seanbirds and everyone else I hope you enjoy my little montage of herps below!🥳🥳

  22. Not in Marin in July and certainly not still wearing extensive bits of juvenile plumage.

  23. Coops usually raise their hackles (giving a blocky-headed look) frequently. A consistently round-headed accipiter is probably not a Coop.

  32. I think the edited version of 1 looks a lot better than the unedited version of 1! Harder to know for the next two since we don’t have the original to compared. But I agree #2 looks good, and #3 is perhaps a little overedited. Sometimes when your photos are really good in the first place, little if any editing is necessary!

  33. And a Little Blue's bill is pale blue at the base, shading to dark blue at the end.

  34. Domestic Mallards are so variable and have so many breeds that it would take a whole field guide just to cover them all!
