  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. Let's do this totally mature and unchildlike photo
  6. There were a lot of cows on the ground...j/k. They were migrating. There were thousands of 'em soaring from thermal to thermal
  7. Uh, this isn't as private as we thought it was
  8. Cell phone cameras are great, but not for bird pictures. And that is all I had for this photo
  9. Yay! One that I have. This was taken on my first 'camera' which was the snapshot function on a budget video recorder
  10. The old lady pinches Tommy's ruff between her sharp talons, "Your coming with me, young man" she squawks. Even though he defiantly struggled, it proved futile, as she led him back to his parents.
  11. They flew perpendicular to me, plenty of opportunities to get a good shot. The only one that came out decent would be better in the "Caption Contest" thread
  12. Found a few mats of what I think are water beetles. I guess they are spawning
  13. interestingly, I've never had a camera with me when I've seen one. And they haven't been in the last three places I've lived: florida, California's central valley, and coastal texas
  14. Quoting your post above went wonky @chipperatl. Sorry, not trying to take your photo
  15. @chipperatlwins! perfect for Halloween.
  16. due to the forum being down for a few days, I'm not going to share a winner just yet
