  1. I'll go with the Chuck-will's-widow, one of my 8 lifers today. Check the lifers thread in 10 minutes or so for more about my day. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/489439801#_ga=2.202694612.453906290.1662158216-1648492956.1640720797

  2. This House Wren didn't seem to care too much that I was only a few feet from it. Nothing was going to stop it chattering away. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/489831821

  7. Really like this one. Like Connor’s Brewer’s, Boat-tailed Grackles are beautiful in the right light. Ratings are always appreciated. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/490580911

  14. I don't often show off Boat-tailed Grackle pics, but this one is pretty cool. It looks fake, as if somebody used a cardboard cutout of the bird to superimpose it on a blurred-out background. Look at the top outline of the bird, starting from the left side of the neck. I really like the in-focus spider web, as well as the leaves and branches, which serve to keep the atmosphere true. I'm not a good enough photographer to deliberately create the bokeh effect. My point and shoot just created this. This is the original without any post-processing. Regarding the blue, Boat-tailed Grackle, color is simply what our eyes see after light reflected off an object gets back to them. So, the bird was indeed blue, as my eyes, and the camera lens saw it as such. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/490643601#_ga=2.38894182.453906290.1662158216-1648492956.1640720797

  21. I GOT 2 NELSON’S SPARROWS!!!!!!! They got the last laugh though… Anhinga is now a nemesis, and while I was looking for the sparrows the guy I ran into flushed a f#&*ing YELLOW RAIL across the field from me. He basically almost stepped on it, and barely had enough time to see it in flight and see where it went back down. He called me over but we couldn’t reflush it, but did kick up a few Sora throughout the walk, which was still cool. Next week is Fall Break, and I plan on going on a rail hunt, and getting photos of the sparrows.
