  1. @Jagularr apologizes for the delayed response but is now looking into the scrolling issue.

  5. This is a first for me, a reasonably fresh tomato, one with tight skin and a firm body, started sprouting seeds from inside. I have seen rotten vegetables grow sprouts, but this took me by surprise. The tomato may have been on the counter for bit longer than usual, but it wasn't the least bit mushy or wrinkly, which are usually the first signs I look for when evaluating fruits and veggies for freshness. Upon closer examination I noticed that there's all kinds of seeds sprouting inside and many of them ready to break through the skin. I'm guessing that the counter probably isn't the best spot to keep our tomatoes when heating with a wood stove that's on the far side of the same room. Lesson learned.
  6. Once a year our Amaryllis puts on a beautiful show, but it comes and goes quickly. It took about 1-2 weeks to grow it's 28 inch height, a week or so for the buds to develop, and another week for the flowers to open up one at a time. Only one of our three plants is blooming right now. Another one is just sprouting and looking like the first one did 2-3 weeks ago. The beautiful 8 inch flowers won't last long, but there's more blooms to come. 🀞

  9. Ah, that would explain why my Canadian math didn't work. I apologize for my confusion.
  10. BRDL 736 πŸ₯šπŸ¦πŸ₯šπŸͺΆ 🐦🐦🐦🐦 Lucky guess after referring to my guide. I had a DUH moment and drew a total blank when trying to use my mystery letter as starting letter, thus the earlier than usual use of assistance.

  12. Umm, I think your math is off a bit. 4 new birds will not bring 66 up to 100, not even using Canadian math.
  13. More along the usual colours, but still a colour variation.

  16. I haven't had trouble with Safari on my Android phone but a test on Chrome just now had no scrolling option. I have notified @Jagularr in a private message to make him aware of the problem.

  19. Of these three, I like the first one most, but not as much as the original photo.
  20. I can honestly say that I have never used any of the above listed field marks that distinguish male from female Cooper's Hawks, partly because I was never aware of them, and partly because they're subject to interpretation. I suspect that many of those distinguishing features are most useful in the field when males and females are compared side by side, but only if you're aware of them before hand.
  21. From https://hawkwatch.org/raptor-id/raptor-id-fact-sheets/coopers-hawk/ Adult has rufous (on white) barring below, white undertail coverts. Blue-gray above with a blackish cap and a paler nape. Adult males typically more vibrant in color and more finely barred on the underparts, bluer upperwings, and gray cheeks (often rufous cheeks in first adult plumage).
  22. I can't help with the ID, but more photos might get more opinions.
