  3. Pied-billed Grebe! https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/614475133
  4. I don't remember the rule about if you can post different subspecies, but since they'll get split anyways in the next 15 years, here's some of the different types: Sooty Thick-billed Red Slate-colored
  5. Went up to Humboldt County to find a few new state birds I needed, but managed to sneak a little extra birding (rather than chasing) in and was able to self-find a Worm-eating Warbler https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/614430285

  14. Challenging photography with a Fulvous Whistling-Duck twenty minutes after sunset.
  15. I think the Redpoll lump will happen, it was a split vote in 2017 and there is now more evidence to suggest a lump. I assume the AOS will vote to align the taxonomy for old world species (Intermediate and Cattle Egret) which wouldn't affect ABA listers. The most likely splits that I see happening are Cory's/Scopoli's (easily field identifiable, breed in the same locations without interbreeding, split by other taxonomic authorities), Guatemalan Flicker (More genetically and morphologically different from NOFL then Gilded) and the Herring Gulls (Would align with old world taxonomy, and fairly clear genetic differences in the mess of Larus taxonomy) however it could end up having trouble passing due to the three voting options. I haven't read to much into the tropical proposals but the Squirrel Cuckoo seems somewhat likely based of reading the proposal. I don't see the RSHA or GWTE split happening anytime soon. I think the Brewster's Booby could happen in the future, but I doubt it will be accepted this cycle based off previous AOS decisions. Will be interesting to see what happens
  16. Lots of fairly big splits/lumps which have a decent chance of passing were proposed this year. Will be interesting to see if they end up going through. https://americanornithology.org/about/committees/nacc/current-prior-proposals/2024-proposals/
  17. LeConte's Thrasher! One finally cooperated for a few pics https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/614134788
