  1. Today in Bowling Green, wandering around our woods, overcast and yucky out. But it was bird-a-polooza! Pine, Black and White, and Black-throated Green Warblers, Grey-cheeked Thrush, a Sharpie stopped by, Eastern Wood-Pewee, Great Crested Flycatcher and this guy. Is this a Red-eyed Vireo? Thanks
  2. Well YAY! Thanks for the help. Both are lifers (and in my yard no less), so I guess I'm gonna have to keep an eye out and eat some Wheaties so I can keep up with them and get some decent pictures! Thanks again
  3. I was tracking a Nashville Warbler and a Black-throated Green Warbler in the top of a tree and not keeping up very well. I was basically playing the "snap a pic any time you see movement" game. Shooting into the shadows against an overcast sky didn't help either. But I thought maybe y'all could help... I don't have a clue. Bowling Green KY this morning
  4. Me too! I wish the males had been more cooperative, photographically speaking....lol
  5. Thanks @Connor Cochrane. That's a new yard bird then, because I usually only see them down the road. And maybe I need to stop second guessing myself...?
  6. So, this bird was tucked back in the shadows and thus the pic has been lightened substantially. I'm confused that the black doesn't continue down his neck. He seemed too small to be a Grey catbird, but they do hang out around here. Taken today, Bowling Green KY. Thanks
  7. Taken this morning in Bowling Green, KY. Just perched in the near the top of a pine tree, blowing in the wind so crappy picture. I don't know. I originally thought Blue-grey Gnatcatcher, but I've never seen them just perch like this, he looked bigger than others I've seen and the underside of his tail isn't dark. I feel like I should know this, but I don't. Help please...:}
  8. Restoring vintage cast iron cookware (my favorite dutch oven is from the 1890s), knitting, crocheting (not just a hobby, it's a post-apocalyptic life skill--lol), gardening, collecting and reading 19th Century American History books--oldest was published in 1832. History is most interesting and more accurate the closer to the event it's documenting. Genealogy, also more interesting when you can give those lives context with events of the time. It's much more than just names, dates, and places. Basically, I'm a throw-back to simpler times. I think I was born about 100 years too late...lol
