  1. Black-throated Green Warbler and Ruby-Crowned Kinglet (I hope I ID'd them correctly) stopped by as well...
  2. Northern Flickers are back...I wish they'd chosen a less obstructed landing zone.
  3. I tried this morning...lots of flowers but no birds anywhere to be seen ?
  4. You should visit me in KY. I've had Gray-cheeked, Hermit, Veery, Swainson's and Wood all in my yard, The last 3 were all at the same time!
  5. Yep. I took it the 15th when I got to my Mom's house. This little dude and his mate live in the vacant lot across the street. I defer the choice of the next challenge to TBN ?
  6. Joe didn't quite understand the rules about peeking...
  7. @The Bird Nuts Thanks. I should stop 2nd guessing myself...lol
  8. I snapped this fly-over a couple days ago and, because it's horrible, didn't look very hard at it. Osprey was my first thought. But I decided to lighten it up and take a closer look and now I'm not convinced it's an Osprey (which means it probably is...lol) Any thoughts? There are claims of a Short-tailed Hawk in the area, but everything I've read says they are "uncommon" in Florida. Okay, school me in Raptors please...Thanks
  9. I should be out of KY soon and setting up shop in the Piney Woods of NE Texas. I'll try and find a group there, I've noticed quite a few are out there. Thanks
  10. YAY!!! That makes 15 Lifers this week while visiting Mom in Florida! Thank you
  11. Taken this morning in SW Florida. Northern Parula?
  12. Feb. 2020, I glanced out the window at my home in Kentucky and saw a Pileated and a Red-bellied on the same tree. Figured that was a once in ever occurrence----until this afternoon, at a park in SW Florida!
  13. Have some final thoughts on this topic. Probably shouldn't have stirred the pot, but it has turned out to be an interesting conversation. This morning I had a chance to spend a bit of time, maybe an hour, with a binocular/notebook wielding birder. He schooled me some, gave me a new experience, and gave a counter argument to my grumpy attitude. He pointed out a few I missed and I actually caught some he didn't. It was fun. I still don't have the patience to do the ebird thing. But I have more respect for the Bino/notebook crowd. ?
  14. Super cool! Now I've come across a Yellow House Finch and a Yellow Purple Finch! Thank you.
  15. Snapped this morning, hanging out with other finches...Could he be a Yellow House Finch?
  16. Thanks for the clarification. All Lifers so this trip has been kinda fun.
  17. Thanks again. Did better on this one. But I have to ask, those Turnstones don't look anything like the Ruddy ones that were on the pier to me. Black Turnstones were the only one that matched the wing pattern and color, again, to me. So why are these Ruddy also?
