  1. Well, I have very limited experience with Brewers, but it doesn’t remind me of Rusty. The bill looks too short to me, but I will defer to those with more experience.
  2. It was pretty tubular, but with a flat forehead. Really cool colors too, and the biggest one was maybe 5-6 inches long.
  3. Didn't get any new snakes this weekend, but did see some cool stuff! 6 Midland Watersnakes was the final count, plus a bunch of butterflies (lifers!), 1 presumed new Dragonfly, and 3-4 new fish species (Scarlet Shiner, and 2-3 others still not identified, one of which is below), and lifer Pickerel Frogs!
  4. The young one looks like he’s proud of how grumpy his parent is 😆
  5. This handsome pair from yesterday. Actually turned it into a decent photo through the power of cropping and rotation, as I was twisted into a yoga pose to get the angle without disturbing the babies. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/580809741
  6. This is a female/immature Brown-headed Cowbird. Compared to other blackbirds, note the shorter bill, lack of streaking, and dark eye.
  7. I've don't have work tomorrow (first Sunday in like a year, with many more to come this summer with the new schedule) so I'm going on an aquatic snake hunt after birding in the morning. Hoping for at least one new species, which shouldn't be too hard since my snake life list is 7 species long. Not that it would affect my count, but I think i'll count subspecies for my herp lists since the whole system is a little weird.
  8. Huh? Females can have the black chest, but have a white throat like this bird.
  9. Seems good for female/immature (if they would be this old yet) to me
  10. That's a Black-throated Green Warbler, a female I think
  11. Ah, I always forget that PA is in the division zone. Also, I’m listening again and not hearing chickadees either, so I’m not sure what I was hearing. There’s also a Mourning Dove at the end.
  12. Yellow-rumped Warblers, Black-capped Chickadee, a Black-throated Green Warbler, a Hairy Woodpecker, and yes, Song Sparrow near the end, on top of the species already mentioned.
  13. All I can hear is the goose, some chickadees in the background and a very loud spring peeper (frog)
  14. I’m more worried about holding the snake in a secure way that makes it the most comfortable. If I do pick up a snake, I try not to hold it for too long. This one didn’t snap at me at all, just looked.
