  1. Best views ever of Black-headed grosbeaks the other day! They're a lot more shy compared to the evening grosbeaks. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/457783961

  5. I don't like the bill for GBBG, does not seem bulky enough. I'd also think we'd see a more pronounced red ring around the eye, while this bird shows nothing---not that that's reliable.

  6. Why not Great Black-backed Gull with that huge bill. Looking at my gull guide the LBBG doesn't look like it has as much white bordering on the scapulars as this bird has.

  7. The yellow box indicates a partially correct answer. If you typed Northern Cardinal when the answer was Northern Shrike, you'd get a yellow box for getting the Northern part right.

  13. Shadow has been an asset and a hindrance when it comes to birding. On many occasions she'll be intensely focused on something that often alerts me to a previously unseen bird. She's been praised for bringing our attention to birds soaring overhead by staring up into the sky so often that when we say, "where's the hawk", Shadow will automatically start scanning the sky for birds. I guess the only real hindrance to birding with Shadow is having to split my focus between the birds and the dog, with the dog usually getting most of my attention because of her health risks.

  14. I may not need a macro lens the way this 100-500 is able to close focus.

  15. NC is miserable in the summer unless you head up into the mountains or out into the ocean. I pretty much don’t bird for 3 months unless I’m on a pelagic.

  16. It's also great during Fall Migration. That spot gets all kinds of wayward migrants. I had my lifer Blue Grosbeak and Dickcissel there, way out of normal range.

  22. Trying this out. All guesses that partially match will show up as yellow tiles now. Partial matches were already shown on the guess list, this will just make it easier to tell.

  28. Here's another one: a Black-crowned Night Heron. For a while, this was my nemesis bird. It took me a while to get even a bad photograph of one. Then, last month, one was just chilling at a neighborhood park.

  31. Definitely one of my favourite trees that we have! Most birds land on it before going into the pond or the feeder. I really should sit and wait by it with my camera more often.

  33. We've had eight or nine dachs on both sides of the family over the decades. They came with a wide range of personalities but every one of them was as hard-headed as a cinder block. Stubborn little beasts with a 'can do' attitude in a 'can't do' body. We had a friend with a small pond where several half-tame ducks would hang out. One wiener would chase the ducks into the water and then plow in after them. She'd paddle around, head up and ears streaming behind. Her body would be under the water but about a foot back would be her tail, spinning like a propeller, as it was a completely independent object. The collective noun should be 'a barking of dachshunds'.

  36. Don't feel bad, your posts can confuse me at times too. ? They're probably not as confusing as some of @Charlie Spencer's jokes though. ?? I probably shouldn't talk, I've re-read some of my older posts before and had to question what the heck I was talking about at times. It happens to the best of us....and the worst of us. *tries to avoid looking at anyone in particular, especially avoids looking in the mirror* ?

  39. Took my dog with me one morning as I woke her up when I was getting ready. Cue a ten minute bark fest along the beach at 5am because she saw a killdeer. Despite her small size (miniature dachshund), she has a really loud bark, so I'm sure my neighbors loved that. I leave her inside or at home when I'm birding, but I do turn her walks into birding. She has too strong of a prey drive and will chase/bark at anything that moves so not the best birding companion... One time she got out accidentally and chased a mule deer down the road, which was pretty funny to see, but all the deer had to do was step on her and she'd be a goner.

  41. Purple Finch with heavy and light streaks, also to contrast some with the heavier streaked ones posted above. Snow Goose White neck rings on some Canada Geese Dark and light Black-vented Shearwater

  42. This girl says "Male red-wings get all the attention. I'm beautiful too!!!" This particular lady was originally on a reed further away, noticed I was taking photos, and literally flew up to this post much closer to me and posed. I told her thank you.

  44. Another favorite from my cross country drive. I saw this Elegant Trogon in Cave Creek Canyon in southeast Arizona on May 3. Some people had seen a pair near the South Fork trailhead, but I wasn't so lucky. I only got my picture after 4 miles of hiking. Then again, it was a great day for hiking, so maybe I was the lucky one!

  45. I got the last letter on my first guess. I got the second last letter on my second guess. I got the first letter in the wrong place on my third guess. My forth and fifth guess used the same two different families I used for my second and third guesses. I checked the list for my sixth guess and had two options left to choose from, I chose wrong. GRrrrrrrr

  46. My Dorie did very well during this evening's birding walk. While she did whine a couple times when I stopped for too long (she whines about the tiniest inconveniences), she did mostly enjoy stopping and sniffing at the side of the road or even watching the birds and squirrels. No barking and no lunging (Bostons are only terrier-ish )! I took advantage of the times she wanted to stop to listen for birds. I used a bungee leash with hooks on both sides and attached it to my belt.
