  2. I used the Merlin app for reference on a couple in the past but from now on I will not be using references birdie 🦉 #36: 🟥🟨🟩⬛⬛⬛ https://birdiegame.net/
  3. How many people here use guides or reference photos for help on these?
  4. I heard a lot about this project before they were released, but I’m having a hard time finding any updates. Are the condors surviving? Do they know where the condors are living? Really hoping they make their way back up the Oregon coast someday soon!
  5. Never mind, found this record from Wyoming: https://ebird.org/checklist/S47079387
  6. How young are we talking? Would a juvenile make it that far out of range? (I don’t know anything about condors)
  7. I was thinking Goldie too. Check this out: https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/461112351

  10. So if I’m understanding this correctly, the name was switched back to Canada Jay simply because that was its original name and they wanted it to be more patriotic for Canada? I still feel like Gray Jay is more appropriate. And I agree with the second article—if we’re worried about what it was called originally, we should be calling it Wisakedjak! Why does Canada have so many birds named after it anyways? (I know it’s only 3, but that’s 3 more than the USA) And the state of California, too (7!?). It doesn’t make sense to me to name a bird after a location if the bird is found elsewhere besides that location. Though I do recognize that a good amount of California-named birds are found only in Cali/Baja California… Doesn’t really matter to me though, I still go with whatever the AOS decides. Sometimes I just like to get riled up over arbitrary little issues, just for fun.
  11. I remember being more upset than necessary when they changed Gray Jay to Canada Jay. Why did they do that?! Gray Jay was a perfectly accurate name and they live in places other than Canada! Are there even any other jay species that are so grayscale?
  12. I stopped visiting this site for a few months because I got busy with school and life in general… Now that I’ve graduated high school and need something to look at during work breaks I’ll probably be back on this site more often (not like anyone really cares, haha). Since I’ve last posted on this topic (March) I’ve had 6 lifers! 268. Cassin’s Vireo (April 21) 269. Lewis’s Woodpecker (May 7) 270. Scissor-tailed Flycatcher (May 22) 271. Calliope Hummingbird (June 14) 272. Gray Catbird (June 15) 273. Ruffed Grouse (June 17)

  14. Anyone else getting an error preventing them from playing the recording? I’m viewing on my iPhone which may be the issue.
  15. I think I’m going to call it a Merlin. It’s clearly a falcon by the wing shape and I can’t really see what else it could be besides MERL with those tail bands. Everything besides Kestrel makes the RBA there (though MERL is considered only “uncommon” by ebird) so we’ll see what the reviewer says.
