  9. The experts I've learned from have taught me that you should assume you saw 1 cardinal 6 times. When doing bird counts we never count repeated sightings as separate individuals unless they can be distinguished by other factors (a male and a female, one immature and one in full breeding plumage, one missing its tail feathers and one with a full tail, etc.) or we have traveled far enough that it's reasonable to assume that we're not seeing the same bird. So if we walk a kilometer and see another hummingbird we can assume it's probably not the same one from a kilometer back; but if we see ten vultures flying overhead and later see six more, we count 10 vultures total (the largest number seen at any one time).

  19. Likely a female or young male Red-winged Blackbird Scroll through some of these photos and see if they fit: https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Red-winged_Blackbird/id

  20. Because it has a belly band that's hard to see because the head is casting a shadow on the breast? I agree with Red-tailed. It's too bulky for a Merlin or any other falcon, and in some of the pictures you can see that it has light-colored irises, which also rules out falcons. (OK, I'm not positive it's too bulky for a Gyrfalcon, which I've never seen, but it's not a Gyrfalcon.)

  27. SOOOOO MANY MORE BIRDS!!!!! 10 FOY today, with 4 of them tagging as rare. eBird Migration Dashboard said 1.6 Million birds passed through last night. The shorebird spots ended up requiring double looks as new birds popped up from other birders in the area. Eastern Kingbird (flagged as early), Black-throated Green Warbler, Common Yellowthroat, Warbling Vireo, Blue-headed Vireo and Green Heron all at first spot. Confirmed my Common Tern (rare) from yesterday. Flooded farm fields gave up 23(!!!!) American Golden-Plover (rare) including a full breeding plumage bird, Dunlin and tagged early Semipalmated Plover.

  29. I went to the Henderson Bird Viewing Preserve this morning and saw 55 species. Swallows everywhere, and a lot of shorebirds to complement them. FOY Lark Sparrow, as well. https://ebird.org/checklist/S108059419 Once May hits, I feel it may start getting too hot to be out past 10:30 AM, and by June that'll be 9 AM.

  30. It is Blue Mockingbird. The shadow makes it appear that the mask extends farther than it does.

  31. The trees in the park I visited today were teeming with Yellow Rumped Warblers and Palm Warblers, but my camera also caught this "mystery" warbler. The chest streaks look more black than rufous, and the white wing bar also leads me away from calling it a Palm. I was thinking a Cape May (because there seems to be a little rufous on the cheek), but according to the ebird bar charts, it has another two weeks before showing up where I am (in Highland Park, Lake County, Illinois). Could someone please help me ID this warbler? Thank you.

  35. I've used it a couple of times in the last year and a half. It's an amazing camera. I don't think I was ever trying to get a good photo down in Texas, I was birding way more than photographing, yet I was able to get a ton of great shots. Definitely canons best birding camera. It's crazy how large the files are, it takes my computer close to a minute just to get them loaded in Lightroom. They're great though, they allow you to crop much more than on any other camera.
