  2. Patience, anticipation, and cooperative birds were probably all part of the making of that photo. Just guessing of course, @Aidan B can explain his methods but Cedar Waxwings are predictable flycatchers that often launch from a central point to catch a bug and then return only to repeat the process over and over again. A small flock can quickly provide dozens up dozens of opportunities for in flight shots if you happen to be at the right place at the right time. Somehow I don't think that was what you were asking though, in fact I wonder if what you meant to say was, Wow!!, and not How!? My explanation makes it sound like I almost know what I'm talking about this time though, doesn't it?
  3. I was sure you had jinxed yourself with your, "I always get it in the end" comment, but I have to admit that I was expecting to see you fail much sooner than this.
  4. Didn’t you know that birds don't always read about dress codes or range maps before going out in public, @zoutedrop?

  7. Easier for you, makes it harder for everyone else. ? The suggestion of fewer ID requests per post not only makes it easier for those offering IDs and tips, it also encourages a more organized discussion about individual birds instead of scattered and often confusing discussions about many birds all at once. While many numbers are tossed around as a suggested limit, I prefer discussions that focus on one bird at a time.

  10. Does the same thing happen in all forums or is it just the ID forum giving you problems? Clearing your cache, closing your browser, and restarting your computer as @Kevin suggested, is where I'd start. I might also suggest going into your account settings and reset them, even if it means resetting them to the same settings. I only say that because I have first hand experience with strange things happening because of a mysterious change to my settings. There's probably no connection but it might be worth looking into. Disclaimer: Just tossing out ideas without any knowledge of which I speak.
  11. I took a quick look at keh.com and found these for under $100, the first one sounds like a decent Tripod from the online advertisements I could find. I suggest you research them both but I've included a YouTube review of the second one. https://www.keh.com/shop/tripods-vanguard-alta-pro-264at-22-61-717421.html https://www.keh.com/shop/tripods-bogen-manfrotto-3021pro-chr-26-67-7-717273.html?rrec=true
  12. I'd never heard the expression until now when Google educated me and gave me a clue to what you were talking about. ?

  15. I don't know how this guy does it. It raises it's leg above it's wing in the first photo and twists and bends to scratch the top of it's head from the other side of it's body in the second photo. Just goes to show you that even the birds will go through great lengths in order to scratch that elusive itch.
  16. Failed. I had the last letter on the first guess and didn't get another letter until my 5th guess. Managed to end up with three of the letters in the right place on my last guess.

  18. Is that an ego boosting adjustment for solving the puzzle? Or is that an ego depleting adjustment for not solving it sooner? ? Either way, I know it's a low standard, but you can probably boost your ego by comparing your win to my failure. Thinking that might be too low of a standard. Says it before @Charlie Spencer can.
  19. Two clicks later and they are all gone. Did my ignore feature finally kick in or have @Kevin and @aveschapinas cleaned house? I suspect the latter of the two, and thank the both of you.
  20. Definitely been spammed, almost two pages of it. I have tried to put the spammer on my ignore list until @Kevin and/or @aveschapinas(name change?) can get things under control, but I that didn't seem to work no matter what ignore options I chose so I still see that user's posts.
  21. Ongoing spam in the ID forum right now....too many coming too quick to report them all.
