  1. For some reason this upload is behaving differently than the previous one. I couldn't cut and paste the file like usually do, this time I had to drag it into the bottom of the message box. Hopefully it loads properly. ?
  2. The first post as I saw/see it. I also see the photo in @Kevin's quote where he asks for the photo. I'll post a screen capture for that too.
  3. You're just closer to the heating element of that giant slow cooker. I think we're all feeling it's affects. ?
  4. Hmmm, browser issues on your end maybe? Issues with the recent update maybe? No idea why it's showing for some and not others. ?‍♂️
  5. I believe the red eye visible in the second and third photos rules out the possibility of your vireo being anything other than a Red-eyed Vireo, @Bitzgirl7. I believe the red eye is unique to the Red-eyed Vireo, which might help you distinguish it from the other vireos, when you can see it. Keep in mind that it doesn't always look red, so you'll need other field marks to look for as well, and someone else to explain them. Makes note to check dates when I fall behind in forums.
  6. For what it's worth, I can see the photo in the first post.

  9. "Bump" is just one of many ways to bring attention to a post that may have slipped past the few members that are more competent with certain species than the rest of us. The Bump, or any comment, will put an old post to the top of the list again. Many of the views you noticed are from members llike me who are looking to learn from someone else's photos, but might not have learned enough to offer any assistance. It's also possible that some members see an unfamiliar link and are hesitant to click on it. Your post might be getting lots of views but some of us might not actually see the photo because we're cautious of what we download, or at least try to be. If you can upload your photos directly to Whatbird, you'll probably get more feedback.
  10. I should have looked in iBird before I added the edit. The peak shape I was referring to is called a small crest in the guide. Either way, wouldn't an Eastern Wood-Pewee have a different head shape, or is the small crest hidden in the photos?
  11. Don't Pewees typically have a more peaked head? Edit- Peaked meaning head shaped higher at the back of the head, not crested feathers creating a peak.
  12. Throat colour might not be that useful when it comes to female hummingbirds. I'm not sure about this, but I THINK tail feathers are key to separating some of the look-a-like hummingbirds. @DLecy might be able to help you out and tell you what to look for.
  13. I THINK it was Scissor-tailed Flycatcher, or was that the day before?
  14. Turkey Vulture was my first impression but I'm on my cell phone and can't see enough detail to go beyond that first impression and gut feelings.

  17. I'm confused AGAIN. I thought this thread was pinned up top last night but the thread was below some ID posts this morning. Maybe my never mind needs a never mind, or maybe never mind me because of my ongoing confusion.
  18. I wonder if the message added to this discussion, the one that suggests checking notification settings for changes after the update, should be added somewhere other than just this thread. I fear that the message will be hidden by pages of ID requests long before some people get the chance to see it. @Aveschapines @Kevin Never mind. I realize it's been pinned in place. Another easily confused moment on my part.
  19. Do you mind sharing which specific lens you're referring to? I'm not currently shopping but I've been disappointed with macro lens performance in the past and don't want to make the same mistake in the mirrorless format.
  20. I get frustrated when I try using my phone as a computer. I know how to do most anything I want on my computer but the format on the phone is so different that I struggle to do even the simplest of things at times. The joys of having mobile internet are not always joyous for me.
  21. Thank you!!!!! I had been looking for that at the TOP of the page, where it is on my computer, and looking right past it at the bottom of the page. Like I said, I'm easily confused.
  22. On Safari I don't see those options. My Share option is found to the top right of each post, under the same three dots as my Report option, and is available on every post.
