  2. I agree with both IDs. Checking ebird it looks like Long-tailed duck has been seen in many different Texas locations recently.

  8. Looks like a Common Grackle to me. Remember to include date/location for ID posts, but this bird looks good for a Common over other grackle species to me.

  12. Barn Swallows, at least for me, are some of the friendliest birds I run into. Except with each other sometimes ... your script/caption may vary.

  14. The gray feathers look too dark, but looking at photos of molting Mallards I think it’s a product of having those dark feathers underneath just showing through. As for the pattern of the dark feathers, I have no clue. My guess is still MALLxABDU, but I’d love to hear the input from others.

  17. My ignorant opinion is the bill is too long. We now return to your regularly scheduled avian speculation.

  18. I believe there’s a reflection from the water in the bird bath making the belly look weird. But I agree it’s a Grackle, Common Grackle

  22. Stuck inside on a rainy day? Want to try a BirdSearch or CrossBird (i.e. wordsearch or crossword)? If so, you're in luck! I've consolidated some of my puzzles onto this page: https://colorbird.org/activities/. Feel free to print some out or share with a curious friend or relative.

  23. I'm no expert, but I make bird calendars each year for friends and family. I think that calendars look better without borders, but it's your calendar, and you should make it the way that you want. I've never had any problems with colors. I just upload the .jpg photos that I like and the printing company does a good job with it. Of course, I'm a little colorblind, so maybe I just don't notice! As for where to print, I search around online for good deals on calendars. Depending on the year (and even the week, depending on deals), some sites offer better deals than others. In past years, I've used Shutterfly, Snapfish, Vistaprint, and I think Nations Photo Lab. I liked all of those except Snapfish, which had some white space above/below the photos that I couldn't remove. I haven't made next year's calendar, so I don't know about current deals. Have fun!

  25. This is Krider's subspecies. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/291626331 Eastern juveniles are often pretty lightly marked on a white background compared to Western, but I'd think Krider's would have still lighter markings and more white on the head.

  27. Still confirming its identity but I'm pretty sure this is just a leucistic GCSP rather than an aberrant hybrid with a White-throated

  37. I remember ages ago replacing every bulb in a string and then un-replacing it to find the burned out one. But I thought nowadays they stay lit up if one bulb goes out? That's a pretty tree. Did you play "Blue Christmas" when you set it up?
