  9. When spotting the ever-elusive brown creeper whilst backyard birdwatching, one may cause unnecessary chaos and confusion if one reacts to said bird sighting by pointing out the window and excitedly shouting, "THE CREEPER! THE CREEPER!"😳

  17. As Tony said, this is a domestic bird. Somewhere back in the family tree, you'll find one of the wild collared dove species you're expecting. But this bird's ancestors were tamed by humans and bred for specific traits. Now it only partially resemble its great-great-etc-grandpatents. Think of it like a dachshund that looks little like its wolf forefathers. And with that excuse,

  25. I was watching a Blue Jay do some fly catching yesterday. Acting just like a flycatcher would, it flew from it's perch, sort of hovered and maneuvered while pulling flies out of the air before returning to the same perch. The repeated activity provided me multiple opportunities to get some in flight shot. The nearly white overcast sky makes it hard to separate the white on the edge of the bird's wing and tail feathers from the white of the sky which I find disappointing. I suppose it could have gone the other way too, I could have had a deep blue sky that might have muted the blue of bird. Oh
