  11. 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...

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

  15. 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 ?

  16. 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.

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

  32. 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.

  34. 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.

  35. 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!)

  37. 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.

  45. The white tail bands look too wide for a Red-shouldered to me and I can't see much pale patterning on the wings, so I think it's a Broad-winged.

  47. Thanks. Birds of the World had lengths for most of the ones I was interested in, so I made an illustration of some different bird beaks. The variety of bird shapes and sizes is astounding. Can anyone name all seven birds? Hint: all of these birds can be found in Arizona.

  48. I use a tablet. I open up a photo of mine and trace over it. It take a bit of time and patience, though, and I did draw a bit when I was younger, so keep that in mind. If you don't have a tablet, consider tracing paper! For pretty much any habit, try it out as much as you can before spending much money. That way you can figure out whether you enjoy it or not. Too often I've invested in some new gadget only to discover I didn't want to pursue the idea. ?‍♂️ Thanks! Here's a new one: a Great Egret. Since it's a white bird, I guess I'll call it a "beginner-friendly" coloring book page. ? Edit: For some reason, these line images don't look too good on the forum.
