  1. I create feelings in others that they themselves don't understand
  2. @Tanager 101 I can't get the quote button to work, but Snake Fingers has passed it on to another person
  3. I got completely fooled by a bird in a pond like that. I saw what looked like a cormorant standing on the back of a goose. I spent so much time trying to get close and better shots until eventually it dawned on me that the goose was a plastic decoy...good thing I was around the back and out of sight of most people. I can't find the picture now but I did upload it on WhatBird back before the site went down
  4. Like many of you, whenever I see starling that would make a good photo, I don't have my camera at the time, but then I don't go out of my way to get a good one because "I'll get them next time". So the picture I have is meh
  5. Weren't they introduced because someone had the bright idea to bring a male and female of every bird mentioned in Shakespeare's plays into Central Park, NY? Hence the European Starling, the House Sparrow, and the Eurasian Collared Dove (and others I can't remember)
  6. Taken in the first year I started photographing birds (2014). I don't have any others of this species
  7. I just flew in and boy are my arms tired!
  8. Adaptation at play here. If the pelican were successful, it could be a catalyst that starts a pelican population that hunt other birds and, given enough time, a new species of pelican.
  9. Whoa, that is exactly right! Thanks a ton. Never would have gotten that on my own. Merlin says its rare in my area. There were two but they didn't stay around the trail very long
  10. Taken a week or so ago in Corpus Christi, Tx. I can't find anything that matches well, either visually or audibly. My best guess would be a Bronzed Cowbird
  11. Taken a few days ago in Aransas, Texas (next door to Corpus Christi). Based on my searching (birds.cornell.edu/crows/mlarkdiff.htm), an Eastern has white on the lower mandible whereas Westerns have yellow. Would you agree that this photo is of an Eastern? It was not singing or calling.
  12. Let's do this totally mature and unchildlike photo
  13. There were a lot of cows on the ground...j/k. They were migrating. There were thousands of 'em soaring from thermal to thermal
