    Is there something wrong with BRDL?

    It seems to be working normally for me, even the bird was normal today. Are you having problems with the game? Or did you mean to ask if there was something right with BRDL for a change? πŸ˜„

    It doesn't help that I'm probably online too often and I've been seeing a lot of ANGRY people on facebook, criticizing people for how and what they post in groups

    The more time, and/or effort we spend looking for negativity, the more negativity we'll find, or end up creating, and the more negativity we'll carry with us and spread in our next interactions. Positivity goes a long way too though, as this forum is proof of. πŸ™‚

    If we can focus on the positive all the time, eventually that's all we're going to see, and the more positivity we'll end up projecting toward others.

    I know life isn't that simple, but it's a simple lesson I need to remind myself of now and then.

    It doesn't help that I was looking at a photo of an American Kestrel (my first guess) before opening Birdie.

    That was my first guess too. I just clicked through the second photo because it was even less helpful than the first but knew what I was looking at by the third piece of the puzzle.

    I feel like I'm being made fun of for not searching. πŸ˜•Β 
    It's interesting that we're getting an answer from someone that sells such a product. I'm not going to get an unbiased opinion from that. Was a simple question. Was curious if other people have cameras that take pics of birds at their feeders. Figured this was a good place to ask and that people might have suggestions. Perhaps I was wrong.

    Also... I'm not asking about live streaming. Just something that will take pictures. So, my question is not the same as that one. I'll read through it anyway.


    I don't see anything to indicate that you were being made fun of @millipede. I saw someone trying to be helpful by pointing you in the only direction they knew of, the direction of the few members that have actual experience setting up feeder cams. If @Kevin's posts came across as anything less than being helpful, then one of us was reading them wrong.Β

    I didn't need a list and I didn't need to look up the bird afterwards. Not sure what to make of that. Maybe they're running out of Code 5 birds to choose from. 🀞

    I've never heard of this one, but at least it's in my field guide.

    No list, but had to Spam for the last letter.Β 

    I spammed my solution too. I looked up the code on Alphacodes.net afterward but didn't bother looking into the bird's range or frequency. I guess yesterday's normal bird was an abnormality.Β

    Somebody must have made a fowl up. This bird has more than one reporting on the North American continent.

    I thought something weird was going on when I solved the puzzle just by using my field guide's index for reference.Β

  10. I have shared my thoughts on a 2022 photo contest in the October Photo Competition thread and now it's time to share yours. I'd like see a fun and silly side to the contest so that we can all participate while still seeing who took the best shot of the year. The difficult question is, if we all want to participate, who's going to run the contest and who's going to judge it? If someone volunteers to run it, some possibleΒ categories could include...

    Best Photo ofΒ the year.

    Best pair of birds.

    Best in flight photo.

    Oddest bird deformity.

    Most birds on a single bird feeder.

    Most unusual pose.

    Funniest photo of the year.

    Best blurry but still identifiable andΒ interesting photo.

    Worst background in a photo.

    Etc., etc.
