  1. Grackles swarm the Dallas area! https://www.expressnews.com/news/article/Birds-swarm-Texas-parking-lot-video-16764757.php?utm_campaign=CMS Sharing Tools (Premium)&utm_source=share-by-email&utm_medium=email Warn Tippi Hedren!!!
  2. I do not understand your message or the change you require. You may need the assistance of an administrator. I have done nothing to affect your functional services.
  3. The mockingbird is the state bird of Texas. 😉
  4. Rufous is my guess. I normally have one at my feeder from November through March. Today I had three perched on the feeder at the same time.
  5. Viva il tenore Luciano Pavarotti! But your life is in danger if you attempt to take center stage.
  6. Don't you never announce in a West Texas bar "The next round's on me".
  7. Is this seat free? Yeah, but the drinks are not. You can work off your bar tab on the pollination detail.
  8. Does this look like a proper business meeting to you? The bird on the right says: "Dammit, I called for a breakfast meeting and you folk turned it into a feeding frenzy!"
  9. Thanks for the help. What clues you into the identification as Scrub Jays? All I see is an intensely blue backside and no contrasting light colored belly.
  10. I think we can agree the first two pics are the Woodhouse's Scrub Jay. The third pic of two birds in a tree is indistinct, but the color to me indicates Indigo Bunting.
  11. The finches I see most often are the Lesser Goldfinch and the American Goldfinch.
  12. The raccoon says "Get off my butt!" https://www.livescience.com/amp/birds-pluck-hair-from-live-animals.html
  13. Mama does not need an astronaut's helmet to escape the "Surly bonds of Earth". Bouvier pups watch in awe.
  14. I thank you both for your efforts to obtain an ID for this hummingbird. When I first saw the bird I thought what is this dingy, drab, gray hummingbird with no trace of a green back and a darkish throat when I am more used to a creamy pale throat for the female and immature Black-chins and Ruby-throats? I think Anna's Hummingbird is the most likely identification.
  15. I can't determine whether all photos contain an image of the bird I attempted to identify. I am triggering a remote shutter release from a number of locations.
  16. Well, I set up my Canon EOS 70D with EF 70-300mm lens and remote radio shutter release on a tripod in my study. Bear in mind that this is a distance of four feet through a window in my upstairs study with no facility for adjusting focus, shutter speed, or frame.
  17. The size of the bird was about equal to a mature ruby-throat or black-chin.
