  4. I'm actually starting to like the first picture the way it is looking around for some food. I'm also amazed that the second one is (relatively) sharp with a shutter speed of only 1/15th! (the camera wanted to have an ISO of 100..) https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/365049431 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/365049471

  5. MN, 8-29-21 Osprey fishing : I don't know if you like these type of shots, but it astounds me how they work. It's the same bird as the next shot, just a bit later.

  6. Was able to get nine owl species in a week here in Idaho. Saw all of them except Flammulated. SEOW, LEOW, GHOW, GGOW, NSWO, FLOW, BUOW, BANO, WESO. I only got photos of four of them because I enjoy looking at them more than photographing them 😁

  8. You ever hunted in the car for your camera when you see a STKI? "Oh, God; oh, God, where is it?? Is the bird still up there? GAWD, I FOUND IT!" Fixed.

  9. This is a Baird's. It is structurally wrong for RUFF (Among other things it has no neck). Posture can change drastically in the field and can be somewhat subjective, but this doesn't feel like RUFF to me at all. Additionally, patterning on the scaps is all BASA. The heat distortion is causing the bill to appear thicker than it really is.

  13. I can't say I have ever seen one in eclipse plumage. Here is a photo from a small pond in a neighborhood pond in Littleton Colorado taken Mid October. So they must not stay in eclipse plumage for long.

  15. Finally got Rufous Hummingbirds today which had eluded me all spring and summer. There were at least 3 but likely 5 or 6 all in close proximity, battling over territory I assume. Time to pick a new nemesis bird.

  18. Yes, Red-throated Loon. You don’t see them in alternate plumage too often in California.

  19. Sorry Clarence, but dousing yourself in shoe polish definitely won’t help you look any more like an American Black Duck than before!

  20. I love the Anhinga's ability to head-swivel 180°. Certainly takes a lot less effort than having to re-orient on the stump to see the other side of the river.

  21. Thanks! Always fun when you get a lifer that's also a rare bird.

  22. First pic look clearly Parula to me. Low contrast to throat/malar, incomplete eyering. The second pic looks like a Nashville from what I can see. A crop might help. Eyering is complete and it lacks the wingbars of a parula plus the bright green/yellow patch on the mantle.

  23. The Lol isn't needed. Here is a hybrid. As you can see there is some resemblance to the bird in question. Nobody likes being laughed at.
