    Went on a birding expedition today and got American Kestrel (Finally!), Merlin, Canvasback, and horned GrebeĀ šŸ˜

    Oops, forgot Bonaparte's Gull which I've been chasing for a whileĀ 

    Congratulations! American Kestrel is one of the birds that IĀ most want to see in real life. They're so beautiful and interesting-looking in photos.

  2. I started birding in November 2017 and the bird I most wanted to photograph, but really didn't expect to see, is the Painted Bunting, the most beautiful bird in my state. Just eight months later, I accidentally found one when I heard a beautiful birdsong at Emerald Isle Woods Park and looked up and saw the rainbow! šŸ¤©

    I'm not sure I've ever seen any that age before. I was thinking if I saw them in the field I wouldn't have had a problem with them but after looking in the guide, I'm not convinced I would have known right away. Interesting...

    When was this? Are there juveniles around right now? Seems like an odd time of year for young.

    The photo of the bird in the tree was taken May 29th, 2018 and the bird in the fieldĀ was taken May 31st, 2018. I'm fairly new to birding but I've taken thousands of pictures already and this was the one bird I hadĀ not been able to identify. I was looking back through photos last night and realized I should post it somewhere to get ID help. I'm glad I did!

  4. I took photos of some birds near Bogue Sound on NC coast. They were mostly in the top of some very tall pine trees and I couldn't get good shots. I also got a photo of one of them in a grassy area nearby but I couldn't get close (no trespassing sign) so that photo is blurry, as well. I've tried and tried to identify what kind of birdĀ these are but I can't figure it out. Main color is a grayish brown with red or rust along wings, with unusual mask-lookingĀ eyes. Can anyone help?
