  3. Could have had my camera settings a bit better, but I thought this came out pretty good. :) Red-winged Blackbird during one of the few moments where he stopped screaming. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/430628581

  7. Left among the King penguins, I took these. The first one is for the shapes and colors, so, artsy. That is a Gentoo penguin porpoising. Almost looks fake and I know I took it.

  8. In the tree next to my driveway in Oro Valley, a Great Horned Owl has a nest high up in the tree. This growing baby owl is there peeking over the edge of the nest every day. The view is never going to get better as there is no vantage point any better then this, but never-the-less, it is pretty cool to watch this little bird taking in the view.

  12. Head says Forster's; wings say Common. I'm going with the darker wings over the transitioning head: Common. I will file a libel lawsuit against anyone who says 'hybrid'.

  13. Not the best picture, but definitely the most interesting bird I have had in my yard.

  15. I’ve seen this bird only in one specific urban area, but I’ve seen it almost daily within that range. It’s quite tame and very curious. It’s an excellent mimic, imitating human speech. I saw it associating with the inhabitants of garbage cans. It appears to have a symbiotic relationship with a type of elephant species. It’s unbanded but I think I’ve seen the same bird regularly since 1969.

  20. Before I check the date I think its common name is Yellow Bird - very rare and should be reported immediately.

  22. I’m pretty sure situations like that only occur from birds that have been regularly fed by people…. Even though they said they didn’t bait it, a previously baited owl will still associate people with food. Though, the great gray I saw definitely seemed unbothered by my presence so maybe they are a bit tame. I’ve had chickadees and nuthatches land on my camera, which is no where near as interesting

  23. Yes, you have to be given permission to add them. I believe @DLecy can add them, @dragon49 if you really are interested he may be able help you find who to contact.

  24. For sure. This is a perfect Purple Finch with the strong facial pattern, straight culmen, extensive reddish wash, no back flank streaking, and short tail.

  27. I'm pretty sure the guidelines show up for everyone, regardless of permissions. You likely were never 'special' in the first place. But you'll always be special to us.

  30. I didn’t know about how Great Grays are friendly! Though I guess it goes along with the friendly stigma of many boreal birds… or maybe it’s just because many of them are Canadian
