  1. The live feed page has a massive comment thread including updates from project representatives. This one from yesterday is interesting
  2. Reading through this thread gave me semantic satiation for the word common. (Totally had to look up the term for that phenomenon)
  3. Black Swift - Not much to look at but they only show up when it's overcast
  4. Blue Grosbeak in Redmond, WA. Only the 3rd state record https://ebird.org/checklist/S113282874 I wasn't nearly as lucky with my pics 😭
  5. @blackburnian suggested Peregrine Falcon in the other thread for the first one. I could get behind that ID Not sure I want to wager a guess for the second bird
  6. Don’t leave us hanging, what’s the consensus?
  7. Marbled Godwit https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/317379021
  8. Hooded Merganser Don't recall if I used this one for H too, but it's one of my favorite pics
  9. TIL the greater Vancouver area is the one place on the west coast where Least Flycatchers are actually in range. I would've otherwise defaulted to pac-slope like your friend based on location.
  10. #60 - Common Nighthawk Random and unexpected flyover that I wouldn’t have noticed if not for the call I didn’t recognize. Also my 250th state bird.
  11. Good reminder, totally forgot about that field mark.
  12. I also passed 200 species for the year earlier this week and now sitting at 203.
  13. #357 - Ash-throated Flycatcher! Twitched for another lifer this afternoon.
  14. Off to a great start 😭 birdie #10: 🟥🟥🟥🟥🟩⬛
  15. #356 - Forster's Tern! Rare bird for our county, last record was 8 years ago.
  16. What?!? I figured you'd been birding most your life given your broad expertise. Guess there's hope for a 30-something like myself to get a lot better.
  17. I only started birding in 2020 and my only international trip since was to visit our friends to the north which doesn't even leave the ABA area. Before that I did several trips to Asia (Japan, Thailand, Cambodia, Philippines) that would've been great if I was a birder for.
  18. No fair! That looks like a Sora is just hanging out in someone's backyard.
  19. https://ebird.org/checklist/S111171178 New personal best yesterday but still looking for my first 50+ species checklist
