  1. The sun peeked out yesterday and my little nephew came in from playing outside to shed his shirt because 'It's too incredibly HOT out there mom!' at 43F πŸ˜„
  2. Don't disagree but what's with the nicely rounded tail on the Raven? Almost all I ever see are very clearly wedged. Is this just a function of it being flaired so much?
  3. That's pretty rare to get a shot like that without a long zoom lens and a lot of patience.
  4. Except I just realized that your real guess must be 2640 geese because hopefully they all still have two feet each.
  5. To make little boys ask questions? πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ
  6. Bold blue doesn't blend in with much but Steller's Jays certainly are mimics. I'm so used to them mimicking a RTHA scream that I always have to rule it out when birding by ear but a few days ago I ran into a new one - this joker was very convincingly making both the call of an osprey and a crow. Probably amusing himself by recreating the last mobbing he joined.
  7. Pretty sure I saw some blue morph but hard to rule out cackling
  8. https://ebird.org/checklist/S161746252 Along the same lines I just had this come across the local alerts for what originally said 10 HOWR - even 1 of which would be a bit unusual as they are not our most common wren locally and as most of us know getting 10 wrens of any sp on a stationary residential checklist would be pretty odd in most settings (#barfight). Obviously just a case of a complete greenhorn at least to both the area, and judging by the multitude of other zero listings, etc to ebird as well. The oven bird is almost certainly just a case of mistaken identity with a Hermit Thrush. This would be me if I got dropped on the far side of the globe and opened ebird for the first time on the same day. Hope they stick with it and find a mentor or a good community like this.
  9. Couldn't even see the whole cyclone behind the trees. 20240217_161525.mp4
  10. Well, are you going to chase it? I'd go just for a chance to get glass on such a fine specimen of our guild. If you make a squawk or two you just might make it onto the RBA as something really interesting thanks to her trusty ID sidekick.
