  1. Currently on a road trip from Orlando to Boston, so will have a few posts throughout the East Coast. Saw this one and I thought it was a dark-eyed junco since it showed quite distinct flaring of the white outer tailfeathers when landing, but eBird told me to specifically check since this was a rare sighting at this spot.. Seen in the Shenandoah state park Aug 28. These are two different birds

  2. Not sure if this would fit here, but I need your help! I was playing around with some environmental backlight shots. What do you guys like the best? I think my preference goes to the first image shown here. I realize the bird is tiny in the frame, but that is why I labelled it as an environmental shot.

    A comment here or rating on eBird, all feedback is welcome 🙂

    Is it the species or that the birds are usually in the reeds?

    Good point, not sure. I don’t see them that often (3 times thus far) so I don’t have much reference material. But for other birds mainly living in the reeds I do get better shots; that said, I also get more opportunities to photograph the more common ones and a higher chance of better pictures

  4. Guess what, my previous comment is already outdated… I was looking through the Lightroom catalogue for all the Meadow Pipit pictures I made and saw this unprocessed one sitting there from last year (together with this quite interesting shot from a common tern). I completely forgot I had these 😄 

    Ratings are greatly appreciated
