  1. I joined in 2010 when I was a baby birder. I had had cataract surgery and could see well without glasses for the first time in my life. That led to testing my eyesight - I can see that flower! I can see the leaves on the trees! Hey, what's that bird on that branch? My sister found the WhatBird site and sent me to it and everybody was very patient and kind helping me to identify my House Sparrows. For years WhatBirders were my only birding buddies!

  4. Wow, blast to the past indeed! Thanks for sharing!! I still keep on touch with a lot of the old members and many of us have met in person and become very close friends. Psweet is very active on iNaturalist. He's moved his activity from here to there. Meghann just went on a birding trip to New Mexico and Colorado. She sent me dozens of birds to ID! Lol It's nice to see many familiar members still active: BigOly, LoneStranger, Helen, BirdBrain, Grandpa577, and others. I haven't heard from Bigfoot in years! I'm glad to be back and active again. Good to see some new "faces" too.

  6. I was going through some older pictures and I found this one of a Gray Catbird from a couple months ago. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/365590291

  7. Absolutely! It’s ok, we all know Texas is the best state, you can slow down with the amazing birds for a bit 😛

  9. This bird is absolutely amazing! I rarely see it, but when I do I am always amazed by how big it is, yet how it still flies elegantly through the trees https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/365612401

  20. Milton, a.k.a. @HamRHead texted me to let me know I had been mentioned. I feel like some old creature coming from a dusty tomb in a movie. "Who has disturbed me from my slumber???" 😂 Life's been crazy. (for context among the oldies, my kids that were young are not anymore, the oldest is 21, and the youngest is 15!) I do miss some of the people here! I talk to Milton and Liam fairly regularly, and every once in a while we bird together. (PS-Liam, there are some photos you missed in my album, DUDE.)

  22. Can you imagine the combined total of posts there'd be if the new and old forums could have been merged? There'd be 646 pages in the Best Photo of the Day thread alone for the new members to sift through when they joined. 😄

  25. I joined this forum about 6 moths after the crash, so I saw several links to the Wayback Machine, but none have been post in a few years, and I know we have a lot of members that probably don't even know that there was a crash. Anyway I though I the us that were not here before the crash would enjoy looking at it, and those of you(sadly not very many of y'all left) can just remember what it was like. I really wish we the old member that came on for a while after the crash were still here, like @akiley, @psweet, @IvoryBillHope, @birdbrain22, @guy_incognito, @Creeker, @meghann.... Oh well, I'm just starting to ramble now, here's the link, I know you can't see everything but it is still fun. https://web.archive.org/web/20150916103506/http://www.whatbird.com/forum/

  32. 1-4 are definitely correct, 5 is probably a PIGU but it's hard to rule out other alcids from these photos

  33. Maybe you posted the wrong pic, but that’s a black headed grosbeak...female or Immature male....

  34. But really, the raggediness of the bird is due to annual molt. Ida didn't really touch where I am in East Texas, let alone the trans-pecos region.

  35. FINALLY got a semi-decent hummingbird flight shot! Not as sharp as I’d like given the lack of light near sunset, but better than what I had earlier. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/365605911

  41. Yes, a lot of people seem not to have come back. I don't really remember what made me check back; after some months I was sure it was gone for good. By the way, on the old site crashes that left the site offline for days or weeks were unfortunately common. It's much more stable now.

  42. I thought it was a goldfish cracker at first, but looking back through my pictures it was definitely a Cheez-it; note the diagnostic ridges on the edge and richer coloration.
