  1. Here's an older video of an absolute ton of Purple Martins roosting in Austin. They fly around for a bit before roosting, and they're really impressive!
  2. This is superb. I want to go out on that bay.
  3. I'm not sure if either of these count, but I'm curious to learn more about them. First, the raven has some tiny white feathers above its eye. Is that a mutation, age, or something else? For the Peach-faced Lovebirds, all the other birds had the same coloration as the one of the right. Why is the one on the left brighter? Both of these photos are from Arizona. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/397026431 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/395547111
  4. Yup, the first is an American Coot and the second is a Neotropic Cormorant. And thanks for the info, all!
  5. Whoa, why is the Egret sitting like that? Here's let's play guess the bird! https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/395554571
  6. Hi folks. I saw this hawk on September 14, 2019 near Phoenix, AZ. It was just sitting on a low branch looking overheated.
  7. Congrats to Kevin for winning the multi-species challenge, with 4 bird species! @Kevin: What's the next challenge?
  8. Hmm, no entrys yet, so I'll extend the deadline to Monday morning. Can you get a photo with two bird species? Three?
  9. Whoops, I just realized that I cheated above by posting an old photo. @Chris ClemYou can post a different challenge, or just stick with mine above.
  10. Thanks Chris! The challenge is: post a photo with the most different bird species. The photo with the most different bird species wins. Please include a count of species along with your photo. The challenge will end in 24 hours, at 11pm EST tomorrow. (If this challenge has been posted before, one more rule: the winner can't use a photo or similar photo to the one which won before.)
  11. I have a entry for the last challenge, and wanted to share it even though the challenge is over: a Red-winged Blackbird and Yellow-headed Blackbird.
  12. I love Yellow-headed Blackbirds because they are easy to identify and their name is easy to remember. There are too many little brown birds. I want bright, bold, fun birds! (Plus, yellow birds are the best!)
  13. A few years ago I spotted this Raven breaking limestone off of a larger rock to swallow. Has anyone seen something like this? I know that birds will swallow rocks to aid digestion, but it was interesting that this bird apparently wanted new pieces.
  14. Cool topic! It's neat to see how some go from scruffy to bold colors. Here's my contribution: Black-neck Stilts. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/62839321 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/62838981 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/62838991
  15. Probably this one for me: https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/395793971 I love pelicans, and it's got two cool features: first, the neat neck stretching thing, but also, the bird on the left is tagged. I reported the tag to reportband.gov and got some information about it: it was banded last year in Idaho when it was young and must have flown all the way down here to Arizona.
