  1. My kitchen, about this time last year. Was in a nest of damp bread crumbs among some farm crops - sweet potatoes, carrot, green beans, etc. Sorry, I didn't hear a song or call. Hung around for a couple of days; maybe a late fall migrant? I hope everybody has a happy, safe holiday, even you Canadians who've already jumped the gun!

  8. I wanted to say THANK YOU to all who help me identify my birds in my photos. I’m not a great photographer but I have health issues and watching and taking photos of the birds in my yard here in central Florida bring me joy. Sounds crazy, according to some friends, but it is a calming influence. So, thank you so much!!! Y’all rock. 💗💗💗

  11. This has little or no bearing on the topic; see here. The dark nail -- and with only the nail or the nail and areas only immediately adjacent to the nail being dark would rule out all female scaup. Here is an adult female GRSC. A not-brief aside: This last caused/enabled me to learn something. After going through two pages of 50 photos each of Greater Scaup photos on the eBird/Macaulay photo archive sorted by "Best Quality" without coming across what I felt was an adult female, I finally looked at the former Birds of North America species accounts (now the Birds of the Worl

  13. Without seeing better pictures I'm not sure this strikes me a hybrid. There can be lots if individual plumage variation in ducks, and this seem within range for a pure GADW. Similar to this pic.

  14. I'm lucky if I see a Bald Eagle once or twice a year, and I get photos even less often. This photo was taken from one of the Botanical Garden parking lots approx 10 years ago. After lugging my camera gear along the trails to get long distance blurry photos of the first Bald Eagles to establish a nest along the north shore of Lake Ontario in decades, and then lugging it all back to the car, we were graced with this flyby just before I we got back in the car. The visual in my head is far superior to the image I captured with the camera.

  16. @Seanbirds, @Birding Boy, @Colton V, since I was dragged into this, ten minutes technically is 'within 24 hours'. Maybe I should have phrased it as 'If you don't have a reply AFTER 24 hours, or if your post gets pushed to the second page, ..." Retrieving an unanswered post from the second page was my actual intent. I don't see the value in bumping something while it's still visible on the front page. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to take my soapbox apart. I'm due at the corner of Gervais and Huger to rant about street names with French pronunciations.

  18. This one was building a nest right by a pathway. And I mean right by the pathway to the point someone could probably brush into it if they were too far over. I think she came to her senses and built it somewhere else as I couldn’t find any evidence of a nest when I returned a month or so later.

  19. I was leaning towards it being a turkey, but it's color seems off (for some reason, this shade of brown is making me hungry). Also, it seems to be missing the normal red and blue coloration on its head. Wait... it seems to be missing its head as well! Happy Thanksgiving to you!

  27. After hearing redpolls flyover practically everyday since October 26th, I finally had 4 stop by my feeders. Not the best quality, but glad I could confirm the sounds I was hearing were redpolls. After almost a month I was beginning to doubt myself! Now they just need to bring their friends Mrs. Pine Grosbeak and Mr. White-winged crossbill
