    A few years ago while birding I came across this 20 foot Minke Whale in a bay not far from NYC being rescued by New Jersey's Marine Mammal Stranding Center. It had become stuck in shallow water & fortunately the men were able to push it back into deeper water as the tide was rising & it swam off. Juvenile Harbor Seal

    Hello, it is me again, birding has been crazy here for the last couple of days for some reason. Had a plan to walk around storm water ponds by my house in the morning to try to get a better photo of swans that have been flying over or to see snow geese, but the weather decided to be -12c with the windchill and blowing snow. Almost didn’t go because nobody wants to walk in that weather, but decided to go to see if anything interesting got grounded. It was cold enough that a large pond that was ice free last night was now 80% ice covered. Was waking the path when I saw this about 7 feet away: Thought it was a Northern Pygmy Owl (which would also have been a lifer) but when I went way up and around to view it from the front I saw this: A Northern Saw-whet Owl! He was maybe 3ish feet above the ground against a slight hill, probably escaping the wind. Never thought I’d ever see one in this area. No swans or snow geese, but at least I had a good reason for not being able to feel my hands.

    Once thought to be extinct, the headless thrush hides among the populations of Grey cheeked thrush. The thrushes which lack a head are believed to attach themselves to other migratory birds which travel south for the wintering grounds

    I thought perhaps some people here would appreciate this. I took this photo last year, with a cardinal on one of my feeders, a few deer in the background, and a wild turkey passing through.

    I found this Lawrences Goldfinch in the sweltering 94 degree head, at 6:00 in the afternoon. It should not be this hot in October. Real rare in Marin Co. My County bird #294

    I believe that since Sean said “thirded” to the proper ID, instead of Tony saying ‘Fourthed’, he said he would only agree with it 0.14...% to make the ID ‘pied’ Don’t think there’s any connection to the fact that the birds a yellow-rumped, just a better/fun way of saying he also agreed with the initial ID 😁
