  6. https://ebird.org/checklist/S155171303 Came to check on my favorite Tufted gal, as well as a nice looking Barrow’s Goldeneye male. No luck on the other rarities though, none of the 3 Eurasian Wigeons were present and I was unable to find the BWTE x NOSH among the shovelers. Beautiful sunrise on the Bay Trail though.

  7. That's because this bird is actually a Ring-necked Duck (One important thing is that a Lesser Scaup would not have that white beak stripe) that I initially misreported. I deleted the media that I put in the wrong section which is why you get "Restricted Access" with my original link. Here is the same bird in the correct section: https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/611514684

  9. I am out of town for Thanksgiving, just in time for an ANCIENT MURRELET to show up in Chattanooga Tennessee. (1st state record) Photos and details have not been posted yet, but here is a checklist. https://ebird.org/checklist/S155117315

  11. Based on the name, you would think Lime Warblers are found mostly in lime trees, but they're not. The one first seen by Audubon in a Key West lime tree was a vagrant. They're actually almost exclusive to orange groves further north, with a distinct subspecies that habituates lemons. The research for my doctorate should support renaming it as Citrus Warbler (Tropicanus Minutemaidi)

  14. The calendar arrived this morning, and I love it! Excellent work! I never could manage to pick a favorite, but I also couldn't pick a least favorite. I think that must mean you nailed it. I also like the cover design. I've been working on a website and thinking more about how colors work together. Really well done all around!

  15. You should have added a toothbrush and toothpaste because if they don't roll in it, we'll, you get the idea. 🤢

  16. My brother has dealt with his wife's grandmother in a similar type situation and they finally solved the driving off and getting lost issue by disguising her fairly new white car they couldn't convince her to sell with a couple of blue racing stripes with that peel off paint. 😄 Then they just proceeded to use it as if they had just gotten a new car. She didn't realize it was her's they were driving her around in.

  17. I have no way to upload the files until I get back from traveling but will try to remember to add them then. I know nothing about RTHA ssp except that the ones I normally see out west are drastically darker than this.

  18. It’s an accipiter (short, broad wings and a long tail). This looks good for a Sharp-shinned to me, with the squared off tail, slightly pushed forward wings, and a smaller head.

  19. Gray Flycatcher in Pennsylvania, a state first and one of a very few (15 to 20 prior records) east of the Mississippi River https://ebird.org/checklist/S155118897

  20. I ran down to get a county lifer Bufflehead. It was a very easy chase. Thirteen species would normally be awful for this hotspot, but I was only here for the one goal which I accomplished instantly. I could have walked around another hour and finished with >40 species. One day in December I'll submit an awesome checklist for this hotspot. https://ebird.org/checklist/S155112319

  22. All of those birds are Mallards. The first two photo pairs are birds of domestic origin. The final photo pair seems like a wild-type male Mallard molting out of breeding plumage.

  25. Continuing second county record and mega LeConte’s Sparrow! Finally got it on my fourth try! What a strange story this bird has been in the birding community…those of you Californians that have been following along will probably know what I’m talking about lol 😂😂 Im so glad we have this bird and that it’ll likely winter. Tough to get good looks and ANY photos, but luckily it was showing itself much more today than the last three days. Still distant though.

  26. @MWM, I was treating @IKLland's autocorrect error as if there really is a Lime Warbler. There isn't. The only doctorate I'm working on is the advanced study of cow patties. I hope that clears up any confusion.
