  2. birdie ? #23: ?????? https://birdiegame.net/ Probably should have referred to my guides before the last guess.
  3. Come up to my neck of the woods in January or February and we'll see who the wimps are. ?
  4. Would either of these be the one you're referring to? The second one has music in the playback after the story telling part at the beginning.
  5. While not a common bird for me, I've seen and photographed enough of them that I was fairly confident in my first guess. birdie ? #22: ?⬛⬛⬛⬛⬛ https://birdiegame.net/
  6. I'm having the same problem this morning. Hopefully it's just a temporary glitch and the game will be up and running soon. ?

  8. I agree with @chipperatl, when it comes to a camera upgrade, mirrorless is the way to go. The 100-400 ii is a beautiful piece of glass that I believe would still pair well with an Rx body and adapter. I wouldn't buy the lens if I was going mirrorless, but if I had the lens first, I'd definitely use it on a mirrorless body.
  9. Are you sure that @Aidan B didn't use the other option?
  10. I probably should have included that my walks with Shadow are usually just around the house and down the road a bit where I'll take my P&S, IF I take a camera with me. Our birding type walks usually free my hands up for the bigger cameras/lenses because MJ usually has Shadow's leash when there's two of us. That is until we run into another dog, that's when MJ passes me the leash because she's so afraid the other dog will attack Shadow when all Shadow ever wants to do is play and sniff the other dog's good bits.
  11. An after the fact edit to clarify that my reference to "family" is a generalization that I used improperly. What I meant was the group of birds sharing a common last name, whatever you call that, not the entire family that that group belongs to.
  12. birdie ? #21: ?????? https://birdiegame.net/ Definitely one of the less frequented sections of my field guides, and it shows. What can I say, I don't pay attention to birds I never see. ?‍♂️
  13. I wouldn't be surprised if you're not the only one to fail today's puzzle. There's 14 birds in my iBird list belonging to this family that many people will probably guess first. I only found the answer because none of my remaining letters would match up with the family list I was working from. As was mentioned earlier, Grrrrr!!!!
  14. HINT BELOW. BRDL 138 ???? ???? ???? ???? ???? ???? I agree with @Spyonabird, Grrrrr. Another puzzle where you need to think outside the box, and look beyond your typical North American field guide. Grrrrr again.
  15. You have a nice shot of a Ruby-crowned Kinglet showing it's seldom seen ruby crown.
  16. Shadow is epileptic and although she hasn't had a seizure in years, I am always paranoid of the next seizure happening when we're out walking. I wouldn't say she has a sensitive stomach because she'll eat just about anything she can get her mouth on if we let her. Unfortunately that led to her eating something toxic a few years back that caused her to start bleeding out, which led to $5000 in vet bills to save her. I won't pay those kind of vet bills again, so I keep a close eye on her and always have her on a leash so she can't try running away from a seizure if she feels one coming on.
  17. I would have thought it would apply if either end of the name was right. Maybe you need to refresh the page for the new changes to take effect.
  18. Shadow has been an asset and a hindrance when it comes to birding. On many occasions she'll be intensely focused on something that often alerts me to a previously unseen bird. She's been praised for bringing our attention to birds soaring overhead by staring up into the sky so often that when we say, "where's the hawk", Shadow will automatically start scanning the sky for birds. I guess the only real hindrance to birding with Shadow is having to split my focus between the birds and the dog, with the dog usually getting most of my attention because of her health risks.
  19. The yellow box indicates a partially correct answer. If you typed Northern Cardinal when the answer was Northern Shrike, you'd get a yellow box for getting the Northern part right.
  20. Don't feel bad, your posts can confuse me at times too. ? They're probably not as confusing as some of @Charlie Spencer's jokes though. ?? I probably shouldn't talk, I've re-read some of my older posts before and had to question what the heck I was talking about at times. It happens to the best of us....and the worst of us. *tries to avoid looking at anyone in particular, especially avoids looking in the mirror* ?
  21. How do you create an anonymous quote, or remove the name and date from a quote to make it look anonymous?
