    Maybe a 'Pass' or 'Skip to Next Image' button for those of us who may be ID-challenged (like @lonestranger).

    Don't lump me in with you and whoever else, "those of us" might be referring to. I am ID challenged on a level of my own that even you can't compete with. ?

    You don't need a pass or skip feature though, you can just type in Purple-headed Snorklewacker, or any other bird's name, to see the next image. :classic_cool:

  2. Weird looking bird for me. I've never seen a lump on the rump of any of the ones I've seen, and doesn't that bill have more of a curve to it than your typical Catbird? 


    Not questioning the ID, I agree with Gray Catbird, but a weird looking one.

    I wasn't sure about the spotting on the belly.

    I think the spotting you're seeing is more likely gaps between the feathers than actual spots on the feathers. That's how it looks to me, but I'm on my phone so I could be seeing it totally wrong.

    Just to flag that I'd raised this 70-odd pages of comments ago and the concern at the time was that people browse using the "view next unread topic" links, which brings them here without a direct click. I still think this would be a better discussion if we could talk openly about what we found interesting.

    I may have been one of those concerned about the next topic issue some 70 odd pages ago, PaulK. I'm willing to risk an accidental spoiler now, both giving and/or receiving, if it means we don't have to be so concerned about what we say regarding the current game.

    Your saying discuss it on this thread, or start a separate thread? 

    Discuss it here. It seems like many of us try to explain our game without revealing too much when we post our results. I suggest that we stop worrying about revealing too much and discuss the current game openly when we post our results. If everyone does the puzzle before looking here, the comments won't spoil the game, and the discussion will be relevant to the day's current puzzle.

  6. How does everyone feel about hints/spoilers being discussed about the current game? I know some people drop little hints, sometimes without knowing it, and sometimes there's bigger hints, like the one I dropped above. While my hint doesn't reveal the bird, it does eliminate a lot of options which makes it a pretty big hint.

    Unless there are major objections, I suggest that we discuss the current game regardless of the spoilers we might leave behind, instead of trying to discuss it in private or waiting until the next day. For those of us that don't want any spoilers, it's as simple as doing the daily BRDL before we check this thread. We'd have to give everyone a chance to adjust to spoilers being discussed before dropping really obvious spoilers, but I think it's worth considering.

    Any thoughts?
