  1. Hi all, While I'm waiting for funky junco ssp season, thought I'd delve a bit into White-crowned Sparrow subspecies. Up here in the Keweenaw Peninsula, Gamble's WCSP are always a possibility. Anyhow, I was looking through my photos from previous seasons, and realized that one of my best was actually of a pale-lored individual! It's bill also seems to be a bit more brightly colored than the typical dark-lored birds we normally get. Any thoughts on this guy would be welcomed! I understand that intergrades are also a possibility. I really don't know much about these guys though. Thanks in advance! Southeast Michigan, October 2021.
  2. Awesome, that turned our really well! Nice job.
  3. Holy moly, awesome assortment of birds! Congrats!
  4. Snowy Owl from the first week of September! Apparently he's been hanging out in the area all summer.
  5. Looks like a Pewee. Western or eastern, depending on location. Where about is Green Wood Cemetery?
  6. Awesome photo! I love Phillies, and I never have much luck getting good shots of them!
  7. This guy takes amazing photos ML484427031 Black-throated Mango Macaulay Library
  8. Yellow-throated Warbler! This guy allowed for some awesome views.
  9. I think I'm seeing a flesh/yellow colored gape, so it's probably an immature bird.
  10. Thanks so much, that means a lot! I gotta get out and get some fresh pics 😁
  11. Do you folks have anything you're using to separate from BBPL in addition to what @IKLland said? Asking for my friend. Thanks!
  12. Excellent! Glad to hear it, makes this the first one I've seen in two years...
  13. Thanks for the input! That's along the lines of what I was thinking. Black-bellied and AGPL are both to be expected now, in similar numbers.
  14. Hi all, My friend and I were kinda stumped over this plover we saw at a dried sewage lagoon this weekend, in Michigan's western Upper Peninsula. I could see this as either species (I am leaning towards one though), and this is the most torn I've felt on an identification issue in a while. Any input would be appreciated! Thanks, and my apologies for the distance induced low quality photos.
  15. Found the 9th county record for Yellow-billed Cuckoo (on eBird, at least) in my campus parking lot this evening, sadly had no camera or bins, but got pretty close in my car to get a phone photo 😁 eBird Checklist - 10 Sep 2022 - Michigan Technological University campus - 6 species
  16. A very cooperative Northern Parula from last May
  17. Why not a young Chestnut-sided Warbler for #1? I agree with the rest.
