  5. I stand corrected. I went back and looked at MBRC reports and it does look like they described a sighting of two King Rails as 156th State Record, 7th County record.

  11. Yeah, every CBC I've taken part in here in California (4 or 5 now) are always actively recruiting and trying to get as many people to join. There's never any harm in having more people.

  12. Is this a common thing for other people? In both places I have lived (VT, TN) there is an open invitation to all who want to contribute. I haven’t done a TN one yet, but in VT there are multiple ways to contribute, either as a feild team member, solo hiker, or feeder watcher. I’m not sure what’s going on with the director for that CBC circle, but I would think they would want all the people involved that they can. Sorry, but that’s just weird to me that they don’t “usually” let people into the team. Maybe there’s a good reason, like some COVID restrictions in place or a park rule or something, but it’s hard to believe that a birder wouldn’t want more birders to join a birding team.

  15. "Phase" is an old word for something like "morph", maybe exactly the same thing. I like "going through", though. "He's just going through a dark morph."

  17. For the first question, go to a species page. Let's take the Cinnamon Teal, for example: https://ebird.org/species/cintea/ At the top-left (top on mobile), click "World" and enter a different region. Typing in "Clark, Nevada" yields this page: https://ebird.org/species/cintea/US-NV-003 Under the "Statistics" heading, you can see the number of observations in that region. As of now, in Clark County, the Cinnamon Teal has been seen 9,342 times. 596 of those observations have a photograph and 1 has an audio recording. If you want data for a specific hotspot, you'll first want to go to a hotspot page (e.g. Henderson Bird Viewing Preserve): https://ebird.org/hotspot/L209342 ...and then click Cinnamon Teal: https://ebird.org/species/cintea/L209342 And this time, you can see that 6,951 of those observations in Clark, Nevada are specifically at this hotspot. Once you're there, you can actually click "Change species" and view data on any other bird for that hotspot without going back to the hotspot page. As far as eBird is concerned, it's one observation. Someone else may be able to answer this question in regards to records committees, however.

  19. 1: Sharp-shinned Hawk, I believe. 2: I'm gonna tentatively say Broad-winged Hawk, although juvenile Red-shouldereds can look similar.

  20. Well, NOW it looks like a Common to me, so I’ll just listen to what more experienced oriole have to say

  21. Change my mind. This photo is a lot crisper, and closer up. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/511255991

  22. I agree with American Goldfinch. My first thought was Snow Bunting, but after looking at the photo closer, agree with @Kevin's id.

  28. Honestly, this bird looks better for a Rufous-winged Sparrow in my opinion.

  29. I Haven't seen a ton of Pileated Woodpeckers. However, I've had great looks at the species multiple times! This young juvenile might be my best photo of the species.

  30. I have seen a ton of these and they are often cooperative for photos. I have a lot to choose from in my easy to find Woodpecker folder. I know I have even more but I was too lazy to look in my dated folders. The dated folders contain thousands of photos so no easy task.
