  1. I hunt on the wing, often for winged hunters. My cousins can be seen across the continent, but my name helps place me.

  3. A handful of American Robins showed up in the yard yesterday and are here in full force today.

  5. I noticed a 'Test' link at the top of the page this morning. A couple of Test clicks opened new tabs on my phone's browser. Clicking the X closed/hid the link. I'm curious what was being tested, besides how many times we click Test before clicking the X.
  6. I think coffee is an acquired taste, one that seems more popular when you get into the workforce ages. I'd be more worried about all the soda pop kids drink at that age than the coffee most of them don't drink.
  7. Good for you. Here's to finding that replacement ASAP. <clink>
  8. Thats a pretty broad time frame, @Charlie Spencer. What's going to be the deciding factor on the actual date?

  11. *getting the same glazed eye look I use to get when my school teachers lost my interest* Sorry, I didn't pay attention in art class, @Charlie Spencer. 仄儭
  12. Just out of curiosity, and for fairness, how many people's eyes glaze over or roll to the back of their head when they hear someone else talk about the things that make their eyes glaze over?
  13. I have a hard enough time separating the female Orioles I see in my yard at times, Baltimore and Orchard, so I have a lot to learn still but none of the birds posted looked like Baltimore Orioles to me. I can't explain why, they just looked off somehow so my curiosity was piqued when they were all IDed as Baltimores. Since no one offered explanations with their IDs, I used the multi-quote feature in the hopes of getting more info from knowledgeable members to satisfy my curiosity, and that of others. I did not intend to put anyone one the spot and apologize if that's what I inadvertly did. Thanks for any/all help offered.

  16. Kinda makes the game feel like an english version of Wordle that uses foreign words for the word of the day, doesn't it? 仄儭

  19. You're not alone @Charlie Spencer. My eyes glaze over on a lot of aspects of birding, most of them are subjects I don't understand, but I have no interest in putting any effort into changing that. Gulls are one example of where my eyes glaze over long before I learn any of the deeper knowledge needed to properly ID them. When I see an unknown Gull, my eyes glaze over, I call them Gulls, and I move on. 仄潑儭 I am content in knowing that I don't have the memory power required to memorize all the little details written about every bird I've seen, or might see. Let's face it, memorizing all the little details is a big part of getting good at IDing birds. That memory requirement increases when you get into IDing sub-species, and/or Gull cycles, and such. Trying to retain too many details just clouds my already foggy brain and gives me that glazed eye look. 斥
  20. When I opened the Macaulay link I couldn't see the full resolution photo with the listed dimensions of 4096 pixels x 3942 pixels, the image I saw didn't fill my screen and wasn't expandable when clicked on. After clicking on the photo and dragging it up into the address bar, and then clicking the photo again, a much larger image appeared on Cornell's website. Perhaps I am not viewing the full resolution image the way I'm supposed to with this method, but I'm not seeing a 4 star photo here. https://cdn.download.ams.birds.cornell.edu/api/v1/asset/540526071/2400
