  1. Not really for this reason but I often don't actually get around to posting my lists for as much as a week later so any location info is at least several days outdated. Not a bad caution though - around us there have been cases of someone trolling the obituaries and showing up during the funeral. What a way to make someone's bad day awful 😑
  2. I only saw the one photo until you mentioned it. I agree that the other photos are definitely raven. I usually don't have any trouble telling them apart in the field but you almost always get a better angle than that at some point. Mostly wondering if there was any good way to tell simply from this photo.

  7. Spots vs stripes on the breast can eliminate a lot of options if you are able to see that.

  9. birdie πŸ¦‰ #35: πŸŸ₯πŸŸ¨πŸŸ¨πŸŸ¨πŸŸ©β¬› https://birdiegame.net/ That tail didn't give me any clueπŸ˜„ But I got there eventually without help. I have only used a field guide for a couple - one of which was that last warbler. I figured out pretty quick that it was a warbler but I don't know many more than the half dozen we get out west.
  10. No doubt. My sister just barely arrived in the town in Colombia where I have been several times to stay with friends who live there when the lock down started. I think she got to get out for a couple of days at the beginning of her planned month long stay and then got stuck inside the house for the rest of the time plus some. One person per household one day per week was allowed out to grocery shop for an hour or two and even then she got harassed. They finally had to be evacuated by a special Colombian military aircraft and it was a riot - complete with being lined up on the tarmac while guys in full body hazmat suits fumigated them head to foot with a powered backpack sprayer containing who knows what that I'm sure was worse for you than covid. 😬 I still don't think she's manged to get her luggage she wasn't allowed to bring.
  11. You are correct in that robins don't normally nest on the ground. Also their nests are usually lined with mud.
  12. Obviously you didn't send enough or it would have worked
  13. It's the Canadian National Anthem! Shame on you! You made me laugh out loud halfway through putting the baby to sleep πŸ˜‚ On occasion I enjoy listening to the podcast Songbirding based in southern Ontario - and more than once I have slapped my face by reflex when the national bird of Canada buzzed in my earbud. 😑
  14. Personally I prefer without but that's just me. I tend to either be on the mood for geometric designs or nature but not usually both at the same time. Loving your creations though!
  15. Found a local news article ... https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.kgw.com/amp/article/news/local/manzanita-fishing-boat-fire-rescue/283-da4ead9d-a239-427d-aa10-bc792f176255
  16. Burned to the water's edge - not sure if it ended up sinking after that. First thing I saw when I looked out my window over the surf.
  17. You can make a blood sacrifice to the mosquitoes of Northern Ontario. I've done it - actually this very week 5 years ago. πŸ˜„
  18. You guys all ruined it - supposed to be 90 by the end of the week 😑
