  5. Hold up. Let me look on my computer. It may be a BWHA after all. Sorry. Give me a little bit.

  6. I continue to be an Alder Flycatcher magnet. Regarding the "self found" status, the bird had been found by others at this exact location, but I wasn't looking for it. I just felt like throwing that out there. 🙂 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/609369267

  9. Yeah, I was planning on going up last weekend but couldn't make it. Probably will drive up tonight, it's around 6 hours one way.

  10. Ok, I’m not well versed with Eastern Red-tailed, but this bird had heavy streaking in the breast, and a somewhat straight trailing edge to the wings, and the “hands” show four extend primaries versus five, so I’m retracting my RTHA ID.

  12. Didn't get any pictures (this time!) but was just shocked to see five otters come down the little creek that runs through my apartment complex. Lived in the Dallas area most of my life and had never heard of anyone spotting otters. Until recently East Texas was the western edge of their southern range, but apparently they are expanding! https://dfwurbanwildlife.com/2019/08/25/chris-jacksons-dfw-urban-wildlife/a-whole-lotta-otters/

  17. In my checklist comments for BHCO i wrote "parent is Black-capped Chickadee, one adult male also hanging around" which means I probably saw the bird begging for food or something. I think Western Tanager might be right, the feet are blueish.

  18. I believe the brown face patch (already changing to black) indicates a juvenile.

  19. Thanks blackburnian. Then what's this one? I've been calling it it a Semi-palmated. Same location, but in September 2015.

  21. And unless the tree branch are tricking me, the last one has too much yellow to be a BHCO.

  22. Dan Zirbel on FB agreed. For the perched bird, he noted that the lack of striping on the face is within variation, and the teardrop streaking and the wings ending at the base of the tail (which I can't really see in these pictures) are good for Coop, along with other details that distinguish it from Sharpie.

  23. Juvenile Broad-winged Hawks lack the thicker tail bands and only have one thin band at the edge of the tail.

  25. For songbirds, I’d really suggest getting to spots as early as possible. I understand this isn’t possible for everyone but it’s just a thought.

  26. A failed mission to get a Thick-billed Vireo lifer. Conditions were good for the chase today, so I'm disappointed. Since a number of birders have seen the TBVI the last few days in the exact spot I was looking for it, I think it was there, but I was unable to spot it. It was otherwise a decent checklist for the ground covered, and I got some excellent audio: https://ebird.org/checklist/S150968676

  27. Go for it. I’ve put the pics on iNaturalist and all but the goshawk have been IDed as Cooper’s. But I’m always happy to have more opinions.

  33. Today while photographing this rarity: Incidentally photographed these migrants that were also in town this week: The local wildlife didn't seem impressed with either: The Redstart photo is actually from the previous day (different bird and location). The photos I got today weren't as good.

  34. From today. This is my only clearly identifiable shot of one, they are always hiding in brush!

  37. I’m actually risking my life telling you this. They don’t want us to know. But I’ve seen this bird. It’s real. Hold on, two guys in tuxedos are approaching me… Wait, what was I saying?

  38. I had the camera and tripod ready for any birds that might be moving around, but the spiders have provided more entertainment than the birds over the past few days. Carrying a fly off to eat. Tying two flies together for easier transportation while a third fly hangs nearby. Pulling itself and prey along a broken strand of web while leaving a new strand behind. Contrary to what I had always thought, spiders don't always wrap their prey up to eat later, sometimes they eat their meal right away.
