  1. I can't speak for everyone here, but I would prefer photos loaded with the post, as opposed to links to separate websites. I like to compare comments about the photo/bird to the photo/bird and that's just easier to do if the photo is right there in front of me and not in a separate window/tab. Links to extra photos is probably a good idea if there's an abundance of photos though. Not that I can help with your IDs, but viewing the images is always nice since I usually skip past the links and obviously miss out on a lot of interesting photos.
  2. I wonder if that is a piece of dead grass in front of the bird as opposed to an eye line?
  3. @psweet, I really miss you, and I don't think I am the only one that would appreciate you making an appearance now and then. Just saying.
  4. I read Tony's post last night and read it the same way as you did, Charlie. I thought Tony was disputing the Rail ID and referring to the bird in question when he stated "This is a juvenile Green Heron".
  5. I could be wrong in my interpretation here, but it looks like the feathers on the legs stop well short of the feet. Golden Eagles are suppose to have feathers right down to their feet, even juveniles. Just tossing out a possible ID mark that I admit I might be seeing wrong.
  6. My bad, I thought you wanted confirmation on your insanity.
  7. Have you tried copper pennies? Pennies made before 1982 are supposed to have qualities(real copper) that help control algae. I haven't tried it myself but I have read about it on various websites. A capful of apple cider vinegar is suppose to help prevent algae too, another one I haven't tried myself.
  8. Welcome back, @Tony Leukering. I want to apologize for the way I handled myself during our last encounter. As many have pointed out, you have every right to post the way you like and I was out of line for publicly criticizing the content of your posts, and I'm sorry for that. While I admit that many of your posts are way over my head and sometimes it's even difficult for me to even determine if you're in agreement or disagreement with a suggested ID, I want you to know that the frustrating part for me was not the information that you provided, but the information that you often withheld. I was frustrated because I wanted the answer to the questions being asked, even though they weren't my questions, and I didn't/don't have the patience to do the homework that often comes with the lessons you provide. As many of us are learning in these trying times though, it's not about me, and I am sorry for letting my frustrations interfere with your enjoyment of the website.

  10. Wouldn't a Western Tanager be out of range for SC?
  11. @Intisar, check out this link on what to do when you find a baby bird. https://forums.whatbird.com/index.php?/announcement/3-what-to-do-if-you-find-a-baby-or-injured-bird/
  12. Welcome to WhatBird @Pam Webb Thwaites. I can't help with the ID but I can bump your inquiry up top so that it gets a bit more attention.
  13. Welcome to WhatBird, @dje. While I know that there is a Tobermory in Ontario, I'm not sure that it's the only Tobermory in North America. It's always a good idea to include the province/state along with the city/region when asking for an ID. It helps avoid confusion and directs everyone in the right direction. 🙂
