  5. I just liked how this Solitaire shot turned out. Couldn't get it large in the frame and had bad light so tried messing around with how I could get an interesting photo with the bird.

  8. "Slow" day at Lake Camanche, at least compared to normal. Still can't complain though, I had some really nice birds! Fourteen Red-breasted Mergansers on a central valley lake is quite unexpected, to say the least! https://ebird.org/checklist/S127141608

  10. Ignoring the location for a moment, a White-faced Ibis of any age wouldn't have anywhere near that much white on its belly. It would be mostly tan and green. Very young birds do tend to have shorter bills that haven't fully developed. This is a White Ibis.

  11. You can't always trust range maps- wintering ranges are seldom uniform and the maps don't show the density of birds. Based on eBird bar charts of dowitcher observations from Lee County, Short-billed Dowitchers are far more likely.

  12. Like many of you, whenever I see starling that would make a good photo, I don't have my camera at the time, but then I don't go out of my way to get a good one because "I'll get them next time". So the picture I have is meh

  13. Weren't they introduced because someone had the bright idea to bring a male and female of every bird mentioned in Shakespeare's plays into Central Park, NY? Hence the European Starling, the House Sparrow, and the Eurasian Collared Dove (and others I can't remember)

  21. Had to chose between Pine Grosbeak and American Crow, went the grosbeak route 😂 They were very approachable today in this heavy winter storm. I guess I need to start bringing my camera with me to class.

  29. Not much going on today with me. I took a quick trip and got the rare Great Blue Heron (Great White) I was after. This will make the county rare bird alert, but Ebird does not consider it a different species, so no lifers today. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/529843981

  32. For this one, note especially the bill size and the overall structure. Westerns usually appear tall and slim(IMO). They’re also much bigger then Californias. Glacous-winged and Herrings are easier to tell apart.
