  1. Couldn't they at least put it in english? I can't very well send them money, if I can't understand how to do it?

  10. With a quick look at the information that is easy for me to access, I can see that @Kevin dealt with at least 14 spam messages, and I found and zapped one more. Kevin eats a lot more spam than I do...

  13. Also, the photo is severely denoised (common in cheap cameras), causing everything to smudge together. I doubt it actually has stripes.

  14. Wow, that's crazy! I wonder if any of my bird dreams have been influenced that way... ?? No for real though if I found out a Snowy Owl had actually been sitting outside my window while I was dreaming about it I probably woulda died ?

  15. Not a bird dream but a good peek into this weird phenomenon we call dreaming. Last week I was finally passed out on the hospital couch for my one chance at a one hour nap in the 24. Had one of those long vivid dreams that you can remember when you wake up - all took place at my aunt's house and a bunch of people I knew involved and some lady I didn't know bringing my wife some hot pack thing she had made out of soaking diapers in hot water, etc. I woke up to an empty room and started telling my wife about this weird dream. She says 'That all happened' ! The nurse had come in while I was out and my ears were like Alexa - constantly taking in noise and trying to make sense of it. My brain took what I was hearing subconsciously and filled in the image the best it could - of course the thing she made looked nothing like what I saw but was pretty much made of all the same materials, a lot of the words spoken were real but in my dream the wrong people said them , etc. I found it pretty funny and fascinating.

  16. It's a juvenile Little Blue Heron, based on dark feathers on the primary tips, green legs, and colors on the bill and lores.

  29. birdie ? #56: ?⬛⬛⬛⬛⬛ https://birdiegame.net/ Surprised myself! I had a hunch it was in one of two families so I picked the one that had the most chances of at least giving me a yellow card, put in the family name, and picked what I thought was the most likely from the list. I have seen this bird but only a couple of times.

  31. Anyone good with caterpillars? Seen today in northern NJ. From the way it was moving I think the head was actually on the left end & it was about an inch long.

  32. Well, the one I saw was offering to ship eggs of endangered bird species all over the world! It was in English, though... (I bet they'd figure out how to get your money though!)

  34. I just received good news, my camera is shipping out today, a little earlier than the months it was expected to take. That's the advantage of buying from a smaller seller, I was the first person to answer the phone, so I can basically skip the line.

  35. For a little while now, I've been interested in the idea of making a bird coloring book. You can find some of my drawings below, and I'd love to hear some input. In particular, two things: First, there are a ton of bird coloring books, and I'd like to stand out. So what's a good hook? I think it would be fun to have birds from every continent (provided I can get good photos to use, see below) and I'd like to have educational pages about bird feathers, wings, beaks, feet, behavior, etc. Other ideas: trivia about each bird and real birders' stories from the field. Any other ideas? Second, I'd love to have a wider variety of species. Most of my photos are from Arizona and some other U.S. states. If you have any photos that I can trace (or even better, galleries I can look through), please post them in this thread. I'm looking for interesting, colorful, in-focus birds, perhaps with something interesting in the background as well. Exotic or notable species are a plus. Anyway, I'd love to hear what people think. This is just a hobby for now, and I can't promise that I'll ever finish the book, but I'm interested in chatting about the idea.

  41. Here's a bird with a bit more color: a Western Bluebird! I'm starting to like the idea of making the book focus on the Southwest U.S. Question for everyone: what birds do you think of when you think about the southwest U.S.? I'm going to have some common birds and some uncommon birds, but I don't want readers to be disappointed in the selection.

  42. #2 looks like an immature White-crowned Sparrow to me. And #4 is a White-throated Sparrow.
