  2. I don't know if I'm just being hopeful, but this looks like an Ivory billed woodpecker! Today at Delta national forest, Mississippi. on April 1st, 2024. Oh, and April Fools, hopefully no one takes this seriously. 😄

  3. I see these guys often, but I seldom get a chance for a good picture. However, I know there's one around here somewhere...

  15. Many passerines molt their body and head feather at different times of the year than their remiges and rectrices. I always thought that bright Cassin’s were a possibility in April. FWIW, many of the photos of bright birds in the Surfbirds article were taken in April. BOW says. Definitive Alternate Plumage Present primarily March–August. Similar to Definitive Basic Plumage within each sex but crown, auriculars, and upperwing lesser coverts become brighter and grayer or more bluish gray; back may become brighter olive, and underparts whiter due to a combination of molt and the wearing of paler and cryptic fringing to fresh basic feathers. First And Definitive Prealternate Molts Limited to Partial, primarily February–April (Figure 1), on non-breeding grounds. Includes body feathers primarily of the head but scattered elsewhere and occasionally 1–2 innermost upperwing greater coverts but no other remiges or rectrices. See Preformative Molt regarding replacement of tertials.

  17. Not to be too picky, but specifically the lesser coverts on the underwing are what is diagnostic in dowitchers. The whole “armpit” or axillaries, are technically barred on both species. It’s the lesser coverts that are either barred or unbarred.

  19. I ran down to Miami yesterday to get a bunch of tropical lifers and wasn't disappointed!

  22. Wakodahatchee Wetlands Delray Beach FL March 26 2024 I think the bird being eaten is a juvenile Anhinga based on the body. Looking at the feet, I can't tell if they are webbed or not. I haven't seen any Snowy Egret nests in this area and this gator was under a rookery with Anhingas and Wood Storks. What do you think?

  23. In my experience it is useful, specifically if there appears to be a "kink." I would caution against using this and other "looks like" features as hard evidence, but it can be a useful component to Dowitcher ID.

  28. I think I've got it, but I also think there's an obvious wrong species to guess as well. Maybe somebody will say that first. 😝

  31. It's in the Joe's Stone Crabs parking lot in Miami Beach: https://www.google.com/maps/search/?api=1&query=25.769237,-80.136039 It's not a free lot. Get the Parkmobile app to pay for a spot.

  36. I think so, but wait for someone with more experience with grebes to confirm. Even at the apparent distance of this photo, I think the bill of a Clark's Grebe would be brighter. And the black from the top of the head wouldn't be so low. But wait for someone else! Been more than a few years since I've seen either Clark's or Western Grebes.
