    This photo isn't as sharp as I would have liked, but I decided to post it. I normally see Cape May Warblers maybe 5-6 times a year and feel fortunate to ever get a photo of one. It was a bit unusual to see one this early in the year in this area (Chapel Hill, NC) and this was a long range shot which I cropped more than normal for me. Even though it isn't a real sharp photo, I was happy to get it. Cape May Warbler by Mark Goodwin, on Flickr

    A local wetland has a low number of waterfowl this year but a good variety. This Northern Pintail flew in unexpectedly while I was photographing some Bufflehead.

    That is actually a Tennessee Warbler. Note the lack of wingbars, the gray head with dark eyeline and white supercilium, the white underside, and the green back.

    Thategret and snake pic reminded me of this, it looked like the snake tied a knot around the Herons' beak. Snake still got eaten.

    We've been here long enough to know that the size of birds is very often completely misjudged. There once was a three-foot-tall Red-tailed Hawk, for example...

    In flight, note the only the toes project beyond the tail; on Lesser, more than just the toes projects. The difference between the two is quite similar to that between Black-crowned and Yellow-crowned night-herons.

    So true!! One day I saw an American Crow that was the size of a Golden Eagle! I could tell it was a Crow, but it looked so huge that I had to take a photo to convince myself. It was just the perspective of the view, but, DAMN, that thing looked big!!!

    I'll be watching for babies soon - this nest is pretty easy to see from the road

    Always in powered or gliding flight, and in all birds, unless they're maneuvering. A spread tail in flight creates drag -- bad, bad, bad.

    I know plenty of out-of-North-America species and my first impression of this bird was an escaped male Reeveā€™s Pheasant with its tail cut off a little. Problem solved.

    That's a typical adult Vesper Sparrow. Note the prominent white eyering, dark outlined auriculars, and thin streaking.

    This owl was seen this morning at Georgetown lake in SW Montana. I believe it is a Great Grey., but would appreciate a confirmation. Great Greys were seen here, but not in the past 5-6 years. I'm hoping they're back. Sorry for the bad photo, its was away and all I had was my phone.
