  2. Chukar. It must be an escaped bird.

  3. Looks too bulky, has a “capped” look (at least to me), legs seem pretty thick for an accipiter, and (bonus) it caught a pigeon.

  12. Another for Cooper's. The dark gray on the nape is not extensive enough for a Sharpie and it's a very bulky Accipiter, as Sean mentioned.

  20. Chukars are often released for hunters in places you would not ordinarily find them. Which how this one likely found it's way to Wisconsin. Some usually survive the hunting event and either don't survive for long or at least never establish a population in the new area.

  21. Definitely Common Yellowthroat, possibly an immature bird

  22. Why not COYE? I’m really not seeing Tennessee for this bird.

  23. A 3 foot swell is nothing for the boats we take pelagics on in California. You only need to start worrying about getting wet once it gets to 6 or 7 feet.

  24. I had to Google 'chimping'. I don't review anything in the field; that time is too valuable to me. Shoot like crazy and sort 'em out at home. This is probably another indicator of my being more birder than photographer.

  25. I use the viewfinder regardless of the camera I am using. Holding a camera at arms length is not only tiring, it is far from being stable. Now as far as focusing goes, the LCD or live view on a DSLR is suppose to have more accurate focus capabilities than using the viewfinder, I think that applies to P&S cameras too. Comparing live view shots to viewfinder shots is one method to help determine if you have focusing issues with your camera or lens.

  26. “Da Hecc” is giving me Robin vibes but it’s probably not identifiable.

  28. It’s time we start this topic up. Shorebird migration has been underway for awhile, but it’s just started for most passerines, so I don’t think it’s too late to start.

  29. Yep, that's what I was thinking. I just wanted to see the tail stick up but she didn't do that.

  31. It’s a Brewer’s Blackbird, all right.

  32. Wow! I sure wouldn't have expected that in Wisconsin! The only things I know about chukars are from reading funny hunting stories by Patrick McManus 😄

  33. yep, immature green heron.

  34. I didn't think it was Tennessee, since the under tail was yellow not white.

  35. Great Blue Heron

  36. I disagree. Tail looks too short for TOSO and structure looks a little off. Looks like Mountain Bluebird to me.

  37. It's much too small in the frame for a four-star photo. There is no feather detail.

  38. Day 3 : This day I just chilled at the Hotel, I did a bit of birding in the morning, where I saw a Rock Wren and baby Quails. At night I found a bunch of toads chilling on the lawn. Day 4 : Grand Canyon At 7 we embarked upon the 3 hour drive to the North Rim. Around 20 minutes away from the park we stopped to fill up on gas at Jacob Lake, while there I saw many Swallows chilling on the trees. While my brother went to the bathroom I explored a big flower patch made up of Hairy Goldenaster, on the flowers were tons of cool leps, the most common of which was the Dun Skipper. In the parking lot by the Visitor Center I saw 3 Grey-headed Juncos. The first trail be went on was Bright Angel Point Trail, along the trail I saw many VGSW dotting the cliffside and flying around the trees, at around halfway to the end of the point I found a singing Spotted Towhee and more swallows. For lunch we ate at the lodge, which had a nice little overlook where I looked for Condors ahem totally saw it don't look at the checklist. After lunch we went to Point Imperial the highest point in the park, after Point Imperial we went to Point Roosevelt where I didn't see any birds, but I did find a Bup a rare variety of beetle. Finally we made it to Cape Royal where we hiked upon the Cape Royal Trail while on the trail I saw a juvenile Spotted Towhee chilling in the bushes, from a rock formation known as the Angles Window I saw several Ravens soaring over the river.
