  1. An overwintering Virginia Rail! It’s been around for two months, hats off to this little dude for surviving 0 degree temps. https://ebird.org/checklist/S82375256

  4. Will I ever be good enough? Will I find someone who loves me? Why do the best-tasting foods have to be so unhealthy?

  5. Got some decent redpoll shots yesterday. Unfortunately they liked to feed on the ground surrounded by weeds, so the best view of them was while they were in flight. https://ebird.org/checklist/S82364235

  6. It is a rare day that I get to the pictures I took that day, so I have to go back a couple of days. My fav from the last day of shots I've put on my computer... Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, enjoying the treat I got for the birds, to help them get through the crazy cold Texas weather.

  7. Impossible to choose, but this is my favorite bird on the planet (not just species, but individual bird), and this is one of my favorite shots of her. Her name is Heloise, and she is a Barred Owl. She and Hootie have used the nest box I built for them, the last 3 years, producing 2 healthly hootlets each year. She is getting ready to start laying her eggs this year, and I finally got a camera inside the nest box this year, and am super excited about it! This picture was taken 7/6/2020, behind my house.

  8. The long string of pearls created by subterminal white spots on the individual primaries is distinctive for AMKE and MERL. Accipiters don't sport them, nor do buteos. One can even sex AMKEs by the color -- white in males, buff in females. Throw in the reddish tail with wide black subterminal band, and the ID is straightforward.

  11. Hi Everyone! I thought I'd share some of my thoughts about how I handle requests to move, merge, and lock posts, since the issue has come up one way or another a few times lately. So if you're curious read on! These are obviously very useful tools for keeping the forums orderly and easy to use, and for handling some kinds of problems. However I am acutely aware of the need not to intrude unnecessarily on people's content and the ways they choose to express themselves (within the rules of the forums, of course). Because of that I don't want to use them if there isn't a good reason. As long

  12. A bit late, but my best photo of one so far. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/311442801#_ga=2.59986413.1931701491.1614291920-1564329242.1600456986

  14. Finally after more than a month I was able to get a photo of the Harris’s Sparrow where you can actually tell what it is. Still poor quality however. Think I’m doomed to never get a good photo but always see/hear him 😪 (this was my 10th observation of him)

  18. I had this Red-bellied Woodpecker pose quite nicely for me, wish it had been a tad closer though! https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/312025061

  19. I really had a hard time picking one, but I finally picked this one because of the reflection in it's eye.

  21. This is impossible. Here's a decent one. I like it because of the foliage, not necessarily the sharpness of the bird.

  22. I call it the peg leg goose. This photo should answer your question about it's legs.

  23. I find Canada geese so expressive at times.

  24. These are kind of like American Kestrels, I take three steps, they go twenty yards, I take a few more steps, they vanish from sight. https://ebird.org/checklist/S82517157

  26. His face is just a bit blurry but I think this is my first photo I’ve gotten that’s not 100% blurry of a chickadee with its wings moving!

  27. I posted this one in another forum topic, but it's certainly one of my favorites.
