  1. Well, I’m back in California. I’ll be uploading the photos from Florida slowly, so how about I start it off with a boat tailed grackle? https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/398315771 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/398315761

  3. Agreed with Bald Eagle, no other raptor in your area has such broad wings and is all dark like that.

  8. I agree that the first is obviously a House, but I don't see why the other two photos aren't Bewick's. Last photo the bird has a bright supercilium and a very long tail, plus the bird is markedly more gray than the first photo.

  12. Common Yellowthroats have white eye rings. Not sure what you mean about tail feathers. Either way, the structure is way off- Chats are large and elongated with long, drooping tails, gray/black legs and thick bills, not small and stocky with a fine bill, short tail, and pink fleshy legs.

  13. The Northern Shrike I got yesterday is 575 in the ABA area for me. I’m slowly working my way up to 600. Hopefully I can get it when I go to Texas in April.

  18. I guess it’s a lot easier to do this now with the eBird trip reports… https://ebird.org/tripreport/21396/29829

  24. These were taken this afternoon in Bowling Green KY. Best guess is the first might be a female or immature Ruddy Duck and the 2nd/3rd male and female Northern Shovelers. The first two were not being cooperative. lol All lifers if I ID'd the correctly. Thanks.

  32. The bill in the third photo is BIG! If I saw that bird here, I'd say Herring, though the photos do make it tough.

  33. I mean I don't think there's much of a point to debating the ID... But I think the bird is facing us. You can see the underside of the tail hidden by what it's perched on. Also fwiw, AMRO are definitely not abundant in the valley. While not necessarily rare they're kinda local and irregular

  35. But not just a house wren! Actually they are not the predominant wren species where I live.

  36. Basically the winners of the monthly scoreboard get points separate from the original scoreboard. You can accumulate clout points by scoring high on the monthly scoreboard each month.

  40. Thank you for your submissions!! This week's birds are 1.) Carolina Chickadee, 2.) Black-capped Chickadee, and 3.) Sichuan Tit. The third one I added for tits and giggles so I won't run an analysis on that one, but Carolina and Black-capped Chickadee are best differentiated by the amount of white edging on the tertials, with Black-capped having much more. Hybrids exist, but I've never tried to differentiate them. Photo 1 was taken in Bell County, Texas. Photo 2 was taken in Maine by my buddy Fyn Kynd. Those who guessed Carolina Chickadee for one get 3 points, those who guessed Black-capped Chickadee for two get 3 points, and no points are awarded for three, since no one got it right anyway. Sex and age are not discernable so no additional points for those, sorry. Here is the FINAL SCOREBOARD of 2021. I think I owe some folks extra points from an error I made last week that I forgot to correct. _________________________________ 1. BirdingBoy, Kevin - 78 points 2.
