  1. I think after a certain amount of posts you can edit it in your profile, 500? maybe.. I am sure someone here knows the amount..or maybe not, on the other version of whatbird we could...
  2. Probably something the crow found and is playing with, I see them play with stuff all the time.....
  3. Evening Grosbeak, lots of boreals coming down to jersey right now...

  6. 3 plus 0.14159265 = 3.14159265, Or pi, mathematical constant for the ratio of a circles circumference to its diameter...
  7. Taken today in south jersey... Only bird I know with a curved beak and dark legs in US is a dunlin, but this guys beak seemed too long..and the white rump is throwing me off....only other bird I can think of is curlew sandpiper,and thats a damn near imposssibility. So am I just nuts? I had a few serious birders look at the pics in the field but nobody wanted to call it either way., would appreciate any confirmation and explanation either way...

  9. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2020/oct/13/jet-fighter-godwit-breaks-world-record-for-non-stop-bird-flight A bird said to have the aerodynamic build of a “jet fighter” has been tracked flying more than 12,000km (7,500 miles) from Alaska to New Zealand, setting a new world record for avian non-stop flight.

It seemed smaller then a normal yellow,... Taken today in south jersey..
  13. What about a Black and White warbler?....
  14. I use all about birds a lot, but when I get stumped I post a pic here, I am not a birder by nature,when you guys/gals talk about different feathers and patterns and wings I get lost, I always try to solve it myself,but sometimes,like I said I get stumped, thats where you guys come in, the website is titled whatbird for a reason, I will never remember what the reasoning was for this bird being a yellow warbler when I see another one like it, and I will probably post it here for ID again..LOL
