  1. Yo, when (if) this has been moved, mention me there, I know exactly what it is and it isn't a bird.
  2. Oh I have time, I just don't consider it. Out of sight out of mind type of deal.
  3. Now this, this will be interesting. I have also gotten a ton of IDs on Bugguide. Quite the useful website. This fine specimen is a Lesser Meadow Katydid sp. (Conocephalus sp.) They were literally everywhere last mid-late summer. I couldn't walk through the grass without a dozen of them hopping away.
  4. Eh? Oh my word, I didn't know this thread existed. Are we still on Horned Lark? If so, I'll try my hand though it has been a while.
  5. You would have to change each checklist individually. However, I would urge you to not change their location. It is recommended that if you go birding within the range of a public hotspot, you use that hotspot. Might I ask why you feel the need to change the location?
  6. Ah, cool. I don't often see flocks or swallows or swifts so it is a game of burst mode and manual/autofocus.
  7. Lol I have a shutter speed set to at least 500 and the ISO ranges from 500-1600 depending on how bright the sky is. I use manual focus typically but autofocus works as well. What gear do y'all use?
  8. I agree. In field, I thought Tree Swallow until I saw the potential neckband.
  9. Yeah, the neckband, well, what might be one, is only visible in the third photo.
  10. Even with the neckband? Or is that a byproduct of the camera.
  11. Well, I've got swallow problems. I cannot ID two separate individuals seen this morning. The first set of three images are of the same bird. In field I thought Tree Swallow until I spotted a neckband on the third photo. Either Purple Martin or Bank Swallow. The second set of two images are of the same bird as well. When I first spotted it, I was going to call it a Barn Swallow but then noted the lack of a forked tail. Currently, the thoughts are either Purple Martin or Cliff Swallow. Although, Cliff Swallow is rare for my area right now. Both birds were seen on April 30, 2020, Camden County, New Jersey.
  12. I agree. I use the Canon 80D with the Canon 75-300mm. Which is a good lens by any means. A semi-decent budget lens.
  13. I don't think any of us took it as y'all being serious...
  14. This certainly hasn't gotten series, in fact, it's degraded lol.
  15. Lol, seriously though, that is a small problem with online sites. Ya never know if someone is a guy or a girl, especially in today's age...it is rather confusing. One of my best friends is a guy but I thought he was a she for a while because online...
  16. Hmm, I use my own pictures the vast majority of the time.
  17. My best list of the year: https://ebird.org/checklist/S55902526 Only 54 species but I'm not exactly a top birder and fyi this is my patch and self made hotspot, so I'm proud all the same. As for lifers on the year...I ended up with 41 lifers this year. Huh...most of which were warblers.
  18. Hmmm, I haven't been as active as I wanted to be here...I have ended with 149 on the year...I was so close to 150 but I don't travel much and I was extremely lucky to have gone out of state twice this year.
  19. For starters. This bird is not a Northern Mockingbird. Looks to be a species of flycatcher. Maybe Eastern Phoebe? Not that great with them. But the most interesting part is how you saw it drinking. Super cool! Never seen that before. Maybe it wasn't drinking? Maybe it was trying to wash something irritating off it's head.
  20. Dude! That's gorgeous! The colors and placement of the mountain in the image are like perfect. You've got skill! (Not that you need me to tell you that.) Nice photos!
  21. Yep, that is indeed a Rose-breasted Grosbeak.
  22. Yep, an Osprey. They show up all over the place during migration.
  23. Yes, when you attach a photo to your ebird checklist, it automatically uploads once you've clicked submit checklist. As for submitting photos that are only very good quality, I don't recommend that. Mainly because A. yes, it is a personal record. Good and bad photos can be useful. B. Because ebird doesn't discourage the uploading of poor photos. It is your photos of birds you've seen. Macauley library is an archive of images, sounds, and videos. So by all means, upload your crappy images right alongside your excellent ones.
