    Keep an eye on those branches next year. The Rough-Wingeds and Barns perch on a couple of 'No Trespassing' signs at a nearby pond a few times a week. They've returned to these signs for the last few years. They give me plenty of opportunities for decent shots from the 'car-blind' (well, as decent as I'm capable of capturing).

    More help please

    I can't find any Stellar's Jays in plumages with that much white. I can see the eye stripe of a Blue Jay and the 'bridle' is starting to come in.

    Snowy Egrets?

    You are, of course, correct about the bill and legs.

    Yellow bill, black legs - Great Egret

    With the sun shining on the front of the bird and its shadow stretching out behind, it looks like tail would be in the shadow of the body and not blocking any light on its own. Just one idjit's opinion.

    Yellowlegs in flight?

    I could care less Okay, so the Yellow-Crowned extend farther. I've never (knowingly) seen either in flight, just perched. Thanks!

    Yellowlegs in flight?

    Which beggars the question, "What's the difference in the appearance of the legs in flight between BCNH and YCNH?"

    Window Strike - ID Needed

    @kcbirder, what's the form in the photo? Is it an organized effort to gain data on window strikes? Is this being done by a single building, or is it for an entire company, an industrial park, or other organization? Do you know if the data is reported to an ornithological organization? Thanks.

    Maine ducks

    I'm almost finished wading through 8 years of photos for upload to eBird. I've requested ID help on several, but I haven't felt the slightest trace of guilt and not a morsel of remorse.
  11. Okay, I see the feet on the branch now. I was hung in some kind of M. C. Escher loop.
  12. Thanks. For some reason I interpreted the image as the bird facing away from us.
  13. I must know even less about bird anatomy than I suspected. Aren't the undertail coverts hidden behind the branch the bird is perched on? Is this bird facing toward the camera or away from it?

    Relatively short, pale bill with dark tip, gray speckled head, brown sides, edged primaries, goth levels of mascara . Looks good to me.
