  1. Blue Grosbeak don't live in my area, so all the photos I have of them is from when I was on trips or a rare one showed up around me.
  2. It gets hot over there in the desert. I’ve been In 119 over there, not fun.
  3. Haven’t done this in awhile birdie 🦉 #36: 🟨🟩⬛⬛⬛⬛ https://birdiegame.net/
  4. Not yet. I got the free trial a few months back and was really pleased with the results. The only problem is use a fairly old laptop to edit photos, and it took around 10 minutes for a single photo to process through dxo. I'm going to wait till I get a slightly newer computer in a year or so before I make the switch. I'm still using Topaz De-noise which only takes 2-3 minutes to process.
  5. Yeah, I actually got really lucky with this one. Most of the European warblers are pretty secretive, and I had been trying to get one of the Cisticolas to come out in the open. I pished, which I haven't had much success with in europe, and this bird flew in to a branch right in front of me. I only got this one frame before it flew away so I consider myself lucky with this one.
  6. American White Pelican and Wood Stork are two possibilities.
  7. A Zitting Cisticola from Spain today https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/462237321
  8. I brought an almost 20 year old lens to Europe with me as I didn't want my main gear to get stolen. This means no good pictures. I'm surprised I was even able to get a slightly focused photo in flight of this Common Swift.
  9. Yeah, I think I got three lifers on that list.
  10. First day birding in Europe this trip. https://ebird.org/checklist/S113505997
  11. Got an unexpected bird at during a layover in Germany, a Red Kite.
  12. Sounds like a Pileated Woodpecker in everything but size. Are you sure it was eight feet? Size is extremely hard to judge in the field, especially if a bird is flying up in the sky. There really is no bird that matches your description.
  13. I’m going to be in the Barcelona area. While definitely not as good as central and southern Spain, there’s still a few decent spots in the area. I just don’t know how much I’ll be able to get out of the busiest part of the city.
