  4. This weekend I got a few lifers in AZ while visiting my best friend. Rosy-faced Lovebird, Bell's Sparrow, Ruddy-ground Dove, Rufous-backed Robin and Ferruginous Pygmy Owl! I got some shots I'll post later.

  8. 1- Colorado 2 & 3-Georgia 4-Florida The one in Colorado I was the first to find as a rare bird in Arapahoe County, CO. It stayed for 2 or 3 weeks in the exact same huge bush making it easy for many other birders to see. They are abundant in Georgia and Florida in the Spring.

  13. Here are my most recent of a Snowy Egret and a Great Blue Heron. @floraphile Great Blue Heron are so tall I always have trouble getting them to fit in the frame. And Tri-colors I don't know what it is about them but photos of them generally don't turn out great either. I had one memorable photo shoot (bird cooperative and close) with one where I got good photos the rest I have just seem to be average at best. The ones a saw the same day as the photos below didn't cooperate at all for photos. I included a couple of the Tri photos from the memorable photo shoot mentioned and one of my average ones.

  15. A Roseate Spoonbill from near Phoenix on October 30th. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/395795901 I'm curious: does anyone know why this bird would be in Arizona? I looked at the range map (https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Roseate_Spoonbill/maps-range) and the only U.S. locations it shows is on the Gulf Coast. I think someone said that a flock of them were at this site earlier in the year, and all of the others left while this one remained behind.

  17. I don't know if this is okay to post this and if not, please delete it. But I'm sure that we have quite a few members who were in the path of the insanity this past weekend. I live in Bowling Green, KY. The damage is unbelievable. I got lucky. We are safe and our home is fine. 20 minutes from me there is utter destruction. I know we have friends here on the forum that live in Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas and Missouri. I pray you are all okay. I survived a direct hit daytime from a hurricane in Florida and it wasn't near as terrifying as knowing tornados were out there in the dark and you had no idea where they were. If you live in the path, give us a like or a note to let us know you're okay. Praying for the families who lost homes and loved ones....

  18. Well, here you are. The picture isn't even mediocre, but this species is pretty unusual for Rio Arriba County, N. M.

  20. OK, I'm going to get this challenge kick-started. A photo containing at least 2 species whose common names contain at least 2 different cardinal points of the compass: Northern, Southern, Eastern, Western. The two cannot be the same cardinal point. So if one is Eastern, then the other one needs to be either Northern, Southern or Western.

  21. Here’s my last photo before I leave Allen’s Hummingbird in the rain. This was a very tricky shot, as it was very dark, overcast, and rainy. Lucky I got a sharp shot with such a slow shutter speed. I’m happy that you can see the rain in the background. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/395914491

  23. And I have no idea what any of you are talking about, even though I was a full-fledged adult when the Star Wars movies came out. For some reason I can't imagine I saw one of them - the one with the teddy bears flying around straddling rockets - and I have no interest in seeing any more LOL!

  33. Long-billed is always the assumption in Maricopa county. Except for a short window in the summer, there's always going to be a sizable flock of them at this particular location- Riparian preserve at Gilbert water ranch. Short-billed is a scarce migrant in the county. There's nothing about these birds to suggest Short-billed.
