  2. I got MJ to select my opening bird which provided me with two key letters. BRDL 91 πŸ₯šπŸͺΆπŸ₯šπŸͺΆ 🐦🐦🐦🐦
  3. Was it???? I would never admit to it if it was. If you're trying to figure out the thought process of someone on the other end of an internet joke, you're bound to frustrate yourself.
  4. Maybe it's as simple as someone sharing some silliness they randomly found on the internet in the hope of getting a few laughs, perhaps anonymously, just in case the joke didn't go over as well as expected or was some how considered obnoxious. Boy, talk about a tough room.
  5. I don't think it has anything to do with your memory, @Kevin, you probably only remember the funny posts that didn't need explaining. πŸ˜‰
  6. That's what makes this bird so rare, if it was spotted out east it wouldn't have been as interesting.
  7. Did I read that right? Did the forum's Class Clown just say that humor didn't belong in the ID forum? I'm sorry, but I don't get the joke here. Personally, I saw no harm in leaving this post where it was originally posted, except for the fact that we kind of took the fun out of it by discussing it's appropriateness. First and foremost, birding should be FUN, and I see no reason why there should be an exception in the ID forum. Just tossing in a few pennies more.
  8. I believe this is a joke, not spam. It's a fabricated story, with a fabricated location, and a fabricated photo. I believe it was intended to provide some humor and not intended to offend anyone or disrupt the forum. While I can understand not wanting to turn the ID forum into a comedy theater, I see no harm in adding some humor now and then. Birding doesn't have to be serious ALL the time, and if you're going to post an ID joke, what better place to do it than the ID forum. Just tossing in my two cents worth, which might be over pricing it.

  10. I wonder if these berries will leave as much of a stain on my butt as they do on my beak.
  11. Tagging @Birding Boy so he doesn't miss @Skull Guy's suggestion.
  12. Finally found an F Foto. Fox Sparrow I have feeling that I am going to have to get creative this week. Once I find a Field Sparrow foto, I think I'll have to resort to Finches and Flycatchers.

  14. I think we all know that type of situation all too well. Sometimes we have to take what we get, which in this case is still a nice photo. πŸ‘
  15. Ummm, at 400mm you could have reduced the zoom to 300mm, or less, couldn't you? πŸ˜‰ I know, I know, I tend to forget that my zoom lens has a short end too. 🀣
  16. Red-winged Blackbirds have yellow edging on the red patchs of their wings, @Gman68, sometimes showing only the yellow while the red is hidden under other feathers. They can show or hide the wing patch as desired so the colors aren't always as bold or noticable as they can be.
  17. It looks to me like the tail was cut off by being on the other side of the feeder platform, not from cropping.

  19. Bird netting or Anti-bird netting, depending on the label, might be a cheap solution @LiamT. The idea is to hang the netting a few inches in front of the window. The birds can't fly through it, but you'll be able to see through it. I've never tried it but I've read many stories, some promotional, about this method being most successful. https://www.birdwatchersdigest.com/bwdsite/learn/top10/windowstrikes.php
