  5. I made an MP4 version that I am hoping will Embed so everyone can see it without having to download. It downloaded fine on my computer but not my phone. This might work? but we will see. WP_20161229_002_Trim - Ash Throated Fly-Catcher.mp4

  6. I was too far away and the one bird was exiting the frame so I cropped in close and moved the bottom bird into a more appealing composition. It's still not an Almost Good shot, but the interaction was fun to point the camera at. Before After

  10. Thanks! Both of them were a huge surprise. The Spider was pretty amazing. She made 3 eggs sacs, and I got pretty good at figuring out when she's deposit the eggs because her abdomen would get really big, then one day, it was slim again. After the first time that happened I kept an eye on her, and was amazed I found all 3 sacs. She would rebuild part of the web almost everyday. One day she found a eastern tiger swallow tail in the web. Most insects only took a few minutes to drain, but the butterfly took over an hour. The Giant swallowtail was a first for me, and it only stayed in the w

  11. Sorry, user error. I meant to put these in a different category, and I couldn't find a way to delete it. So, here they are.

  13. The most likely species, Acadian, is ruled out by the short primary projection, which also rules out both Alder and Willow. The white throat and breast rule out Yellow-bellied, leaving your answer.

  14. The first video you uploaded worked great. Beautiful footage of that Ash-throated Flycatcher.

  15. Yes. Large bill, darker vest and contrasty throat can help separate these from Wood-Pewee

  16. Yeah, looks like an Alder to me too, but it might be best to leave it as Traill's (which, by the way, is spelled with two L's and an apostrophe).

  26. A pair of Black-capped chickadees found a nice spot to excavate and build a nest. While one of them was in the tree hole, the other one would be waiting on a nearby branch. As soon as the one in the hole left with a bill full of wood shavings, the other other one went in while the first one waited on a branch. Team work at it's finest!

  28. I would think Baltimore Oriole, as the call could definitely be one, and your description in spot on for a yellowish one.

  29. Yes, with the second one -- with that gray back and head -- being referable to the auduboni subspecies group.

  40. If it was a Spotted Towhee it would be doing something like this and the part I circled is the wing?

  42. I've never even considered trying to sell photos but occasionally I am asked if it is OK to use my photos (a birding article and a charity event recently) and I think it is great that someone is getting some use from them. When someone here noticed that one of my photos is being used by eBird I was more than pleased about that. @IKLland Just a thought. I noticed for this photo you were using an FL of 140mm and a shutter speed of 1/2,000 which pushed the ISO up to 2,000. A slower shutter speed would have been fine but more than likely you didn't have time to change your settings. I suspect
