  1. Not my "best" photo but I did something really cool this past weekend. It was pouring down rain but we had a great time. Pic courtesy of my husband.
  2. My books are packed away and I am terrible with warblers. Is this a Cape May? Winston Salem, NC 10/6/19
  3. Yesterday was a bad day for photography. However, I managed to get a few decent shots from deep in the woods. American Redstart
  4. Eastern Wood Peewee or Willow Flycatcher. -something else? The peaked head has me leaning Peewee although Willow's breed in the area. North Carolina 10/5/19
  5. I hate to say this, but I think a lot of the old members have moved on to other sites. There have been too many forum crashes and that can be really discouraging. That's too bad. I really like this forum, but it is not the same without some of the members from the old forum. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to increase membership? It would be great to restore this forum to its glory days. as for my local area, I was able to see a Yellow Warbler in my backyard for the first. time. ever. Migration is great. We also have a resident Crow "family" that love our sunflower chips. They are fun to watch. We have a swampy area within 1/4 mile so we get a lot of flyover Ducks and Herons. We are far enough south that many of they stay through the winter.
  6. I use 2 neckstraps, one higher and one lower just like you suggested. OPTECH makes a great harnesses for both and I bought one. I think it's somewhere in my garage...
  7. We have a resident dragonfly who guards our pond. It makes for great photo-ops
  8. Another one from Sunday 8/4/19 Red-Winged Blackbird
  9. I see a yellow gape so this might be a young bird helping with the new brood
  10. Is there enough here to list this as a Yellow Warbler on ebird? This is the only shot I got. Winston Salem, NC
  11. That was my first impression, but the pale beak was throwing me off. thanks!
  12. Size is notoriously difficult to judge. They are a only about 6 inches or so.
  13. I though this was a young/female red-winged blackbird. Now I am questioning it. Is this a young Dickcissel? Winston Salem, NC 8-4-19
  14. I'm thinking one of the chickadee's I'm not sure what you have there. maybe a Mountain?
  15. I think I see a curved culmen so that makes it a house finch for me too.
  16. I agree with Downy woodpecker due to the smaller bill, spotting on the outer tail feathers and lack of shoulder spur.
  17. This is giving me more of a Red-Tailed Hawk vibe.
  18. You have a Horned Lark that is hiding its horns
  19. I've been vultures nesting in old abandoned houses and barns. This is not unusual. Vomiting could be a health issue or sometimes in vultures it is a natural response to stress. They will hiss at you if you get too close.
  20. I'm getting a female Bunting vibe from this one. Is Lazuli in your range?
