  3. Plumbeous Vireo. Neat find!

  4. I’m pretty sure this is a Willow Flycatcher, as the similar Alder Flycatcher would be quite the rarity there. I’d definitely wait for more opinions though.

  7. Absolutely nothing special here. We're installing a software upgrade on an application server. I could sit in the A/C and watch the progress bar creep across the screen for an hour-plus, or walk the perimeter of the plant property at 90F. Guess which one I chose? https://ebird.org/checklist/S113692160

  9. Nice! Do you keep a moth list? Mine's at 318 species so far. Here's my Hologram Moth

  10. A moth I've been wanting to see for a while...Hologram Moth. Wish I'd have gotten better pics. My soft box is too soft for my zoom lens to be on it. I'm going to have to break down and get a macro lens at some point. Kit lens are my only other ones, and those don't quite cut it either. Another new one Yellow-fringed Dolichomia Moth I think this is a Little Glassywing Not a new one, but a new angle. Nice Painted Bunting impression on the body of this Oak Leafroller Moth

  11. He's back at it today, but now he's "airing out" his left side. But it's not as persistent - he's just holding this pose for a minute or so, then resuming normal pose. He looks better groomed and breathing appears normal. Still shows some white feathers sticking out on the right shoulder. Hopefully whatever it is, it's getting better!

  12. I'd say definitely a grackle, not sure which species. Get well soon! I'll say a prayer for you!

  15. I'm running out of things to say before the checklist paste. I added some details to the Ebird checklist description. I didn't feel like sharing the following with Ebird, but if anybody is interested, there were lots of annoying gnats landing on my face while I was taking photos. https://ebird.org/checklist/S113752813

  16. Exactly my point, a bird might be really common in one spot, and two hours away you can't find one. Just because a bird is common around you does not mean it is so in other places.

  17. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/462423711 My best male Tanager yet. (Wish I didn't have the one lens broken, then I could have had a five-star, amazing looks!)

  18. Juvenile grackle. Do you have Common Grackles as well?

  19. Nice gape spot + short eyeline. Very thin white bars on speculum. I agree it's pure mottled duck. The light coloration on the tail is due to wear this time of year and is not a true white like a female mallard would have. Also, in Florida the female can have a bill that is anything from dull olive to indistinguishable from a female mallard.

  24. When I was in South Carolina, my crow counts were based on sounds. When they didn't vocalize, I just put down "crow sp."

  29. Sorry for the late reply, I've been extremely busy lately. Both my parents love to travel, and they wanted to bring my two siblings and I on a round-the-world trip before my oldest sibling went off to college. We started out in August 2019, and had quite an adventure being almost stuck in Morocco as the pandemic got underway in March 2020. We finally got home in July 2020. Certainly, we had a lot of adventures on the trip- too many to recount them all here!

  30. Forgot how far NC is ahead of Ontario in plumage, explains the dark bill. A Mallard chick this morning in ON (same dark bill) but not quite as advanced.

  31. Of interest from today's ABA rare bird roundup (https://www.aba.org/rare-bird-alert-june-24-2022/). TWO state first Limpkins! Plus one in Amarillo Texas, the farthest west the species has gone (so far). The Limpkin summer continues to be absolutely ridiculous, as both Nebraska and Iowa picked up their state 1st records on exactly the same day. The Nebraska Limpkin is near Omaha, and the Iowa Limpkin in is Lucas. In Utah, a well-documented Alder Flycatcher was photographed, and most crucially, recorded, in Salt Lake, representing that state’s 1st record. Up to Yukon, where a sharp male Thick-billed Longspur at Watson Lake is a territorial 1st.
