  1. Thats a pretty broad time frame, @Charlie Spencer. What's going to be the deciding factor on the actual date?

  4. *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. πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ
  5. 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?
  6. 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.

  9. Kinda makes the game feel like an english version of Wordle that uses foreign words for the word of the day, doesn't it? πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

  12. 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. πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™‚οΈ 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. πŸ₯Έ
  13. 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

  17. I agree with @aveschapinas first choice, it's a Who from Whoville. As for her second guess, Isn't the internet out of range for anything from the Pareidolia family? πŸ˜‡

  23. How about we combine the last three letters of the alphabet into one week. Birds beginning with X, Y, or Z will be acceptable this week.
  24. I agree with @Charlie Spencer, @jayD. I think the blue we see in the photo is more from the angle of light on the bird than any settings in the camera throwing off the colours. Mallards are another bird that often have blue colours when the sun hits their green head from certain angles. If you think it's a camera problem, I suggest finding a colour chart and doing a few tests to see how accurately your camera captures the colours before you go investing in a new camera. It might be a problem with the camera or it's settings, but I suspect it's just a change of colour due to the angle of light.
