  1. I don't mind being public. I'm not sure why we are given 3 privacy level choices with the Trip Reports.
  2. 21 June 2022 Baldwin co. AL; emanating from thick grass at water's edge in heavily wooded & very lightly-traveled part of bayside public park. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/461407691
  3. Just curious what privacy setting people use for their ebird Trip Reports.
  4. 17 Jun 2022 Baldwin co. AL; deep woods of delta I have heard these many times, but this would be my Lifer photo/sighting, so confirmation or correction is appreciated! He seemed more shy than the other vireo species I've seen.
  5. It was a terrific spot! I can't wait to go back. Maine was beautiful. ❤️
  6. 01 June 2022 Lincoln co. ME; Muscongus Bay; ferry from mainland to Monhegan Island
  7. 01 June 2022 Lincoln co. ME; commercial dock looks too dark for Herring. Anything else to help differentiate?
  8. 31 May 2022 Lincoln co. ME; open waters of bay
  9. 31 May 2022 Lincoln/Knox co. ME; Muscongus Bay; seen from boat
  10. Hi, All-- I recently accepted some shared lists from a group using another portal and would like to change only my list to the general ebird portal, but did not want to do so if it would change the portal for everyone sharing the list. Does anyone know if that is what would happen?
  11. 06 June 2022 Baldwin co. AL; heavily wooded trail in state park
  12. From the bucket list, to boot. ❤️
  13. Yes! A girlfriend and I spent 10 days in Costa Rica in February and we had such a great time, we plan to go back for more next year. I am looking forward to more international birding trips in other destinations.
  14. It's down again this afternoon for me ("Bad Gateway") so I went to your links, @Zoroark, but I had no idea what to do once I got there.
  15. @Aidan B @Quiscalus quiscula What is the consensus?
  16. Not long ago, hubby & I watched a documentary on ospreys that described exactly this behavior, attributed to the osprey protecting their hunting territory.
  17. It looks like a Great-crested Flycatcher, but wait for the experts.
  18. 12 May 2022 Baldwin co. AL; Gulf beach at NWR I've never ID'd one in flight
  19. @millipede@KevinMy family raised cattle and spoke of one birthing season when the vultures did exactly that: waited nearby a cow when calving was imminent and then attacked the calf as soon as it was being birthed. It got so bad they had to secure permits from the state & feds to capture and dispatch the vultures. My father said that it occurred during a very long and severe drought and postulated that is what drove the vultures to adopt that behavior, because it was highly unusual. Cattlemen & farmers usually appreciate the clean-up these birds provide. I may have posted this story previously on this site--maybe that is where you heard it?
  20. Any of that is waaaaaaaaaaaaay above my pay grade. 😄
  21. Come East! I want a Hermit Warbler.
