  3. looks like non-breeding, or more likely immature plumage Eared to me. I would expect Horned to have a sharper contrast between the dark top of head and white cheek downward...if it were an immature Horned, I would expect more brownish hues....not that I've ever seen the bird, but tried a few times recently at least...wait for others...

  5. Red-flanked Bluetail!!! My first code 4 bird. Spent 2+ hours staking out a neighborhood with _a lot_ of other local birders to only get very brief looks. And of course all my photos were back of the head shots, but I'll take it.

  7. The idea is to go through the alphabet and post a photo of a bird(s) whose name starts with the weekly letter. The letter will change on Friday every week but a new photo can be posted every day of the week for that week's letter. Creativity may be required for some letters so flexibility is allowed. As a very simple example, an American Robin photo could also work as a Robin-American photo if someone was stuck on the letter R, preferably not the same photo for both though. Let the Alphabet begin.

  9. I'm up to 242 right now with the most recent being a Warbling Vireo from last weekend. In a week or so it'll start to pick up as Pacific-slope Flycatcher, Wilson's Warbler, Black-throated Gray Warbler and more start to show up around my yard.

  10. Did anyone see this message when they started today's game? I played on the computer earlier today and didn't see anything but when I looked at BRDL on my phone this evening, I saw this message.

  13. Yes, you can post the same species as someone else posted. Obviously it would be nice to see the widest variety possible, but there's no reason to sit out because someone else posted before you.

  19. I would guess Snow based on the lazy V shape, even in large groups Canadas tend to be a bit more coordinated. but I’m in no way sure these birds are SNGO

  23. Both are female House Finches. They appear to be different colors because of differences in the lighting. There's also the way their holding their feathers - on the second bird, you can see the whitish bars on the wings; on the first bird, she has her side feathers fluffed up over the wings and bars. Male House Finches have reddish heads. breasts, and rumps (in some locations, they're also orange or yellow). https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/House_Finch/ I love the first photo.

  30. Yeahhh they’re really not that good, I got one of its back and the other of its mostly obstructed backside, so definitely the definition of documentary shots. I’ll try to get them up today haha

  31. Yes, you understand correctly. As long as you understand that means a different A bird each day until Friday.

  35. That's the direction I was sortof leaning, too, for exactly the reason you said. Wish I'd spotted them a few seconds sooner and had time to get a closer shot and before the trees interfered. I'm fine with it remaining a mystery, though; that's part of what makes this hobby exciting/intriguing, IMO. 😁

  38. The first Northern Rough-Winged Swallows showed up at my place of work today. There are several niches and openings in the factory walls where they nest. When I first started there 29 years ago, Barn Swallows were the regular species. They'd build mud nests in the framework of the metal awnings over the doors. For several years we had no swallows nesting on the property. About a decade ago, the NRWS moved in.
