  1. Liam used to do a thread like this on the old forum. Each day that I can, I'll post a digest of that day's noteworthy sightings. (Note-this is for truly rare stuff to the ABA entirely, or really rare sightings for certain states.) Some of these have lots of sightings, so I have pulled random ebird checklists. Others are the ebird list for the original spotter. October 16, 2021: -Brambling in Great Falls, MONTANA https://www.facebook.com/groups/685284001855488/posts/1492184107832136/ -Fork-tailed Flycatcher in Pasadena, MARYLAND https://ebird.org/checklist/S96245467 -continuing Emperor Goose in Beaverton, OREGON https://ebird.org/checklist/S96099272 -continuing Bell's Vireo in Woodstock, VERMONT https://ebird.org/vt/checklist/S96181043 -continuing Short-billed Gull in Johnson County, IOWA https://ebird.org/checklist/S96104713 (checklist is from the 13th, but it was reported that the bird continues to be seen.)

  8. If I'd been a little quicker, I wouldn't have had to go after Big Oly. 🙂 There's a female Barrow's in there, by the way. This is why I don't have better pictures:

  9. Lesser Yellowlegs confirmed, but your second bird looks better for a Pectoral Sandpiper (Assuming you mean the bird in the foreground, not sure what the background bird is)

  10. This morning at a tree-planting to honor a recently deceased birder, in order: a Pileated Woodpecker flying low, 3 Red-shouldered Hawks, a low adult Peregrine Falcon, a Red-tailed Hawk, and a Cooper's Hawk.

  11. Could you guys at least send a couple western warblers over here?!?! I’d very much like a Black-throated Gray, but I understand if it has to be a Townsend’s.

  12. Both birds, wether they be the same or not, are Red-taileds. Some of the western subspecies can be quite colorful.

  15. The Canada warbler from the other day put me at 200 for my county list, and a magnolia warbler today made it 201!

  17. Merlin? Wing shape looks wrong for an accipiter to me. Not sure it’s identifiable from these pics.

  19. This bird was in the middle of a pack of Myrtles and Kinglets. I saw my first Nashville a few weeks ago so I want to confirm I am correct with this ID. I took this photo in Laurel, MD today. Thanks in advance.

  23. I also disagree with the part about the photo being poor quality. Is it prize winning? No. Can you see the bird clearly? Absolutely! You should see some photos I've posted in the past. 😂

  25. #1: The only wigeon is the top-most bird. The other three are Gadwalls. #3: The last bird in your sequence is a Mallard, not an American Black Duck.

  34. 4 first of fall Fox Sparrows today. The warblers are getting sparse, and I'm sure the Northwest winds this week will clear a lot of them out, and should bring in some waterfowl/gulls. The sparrows are still hanging in there though.

  37. Agree with Chipping Sparrow with that dark eyeline going all the way through the eye to the bill.
