  2. @Cyanocitta cristata said Welcome to Whatbird, Cyanocitta cristata. I had no idea that you had to pay to participate in any of the science based bird counting events, especially events held in your own backyard. I understand the need to raise funds to keep things operating, I just didn't know they did their fundraising this way. I could see the fee causing hesitation amongst some bird watchers. If people struggle to pay for birdseed, having to pay to count the birds that eat that seed might be a bit too much for some. It's too bad that some good data is likely to be lost because of the $.

  5. @SirVive said A red X will show up if you click the Guess button without selecting a bird first. It usually happens with an accidental double click of the Guess button, but some of us do it intentionally when we don't know what to guess.

  8. @Johnd said If you click on the icon that looks like two links in a chain at the top of your text box, you can paste your copied link into the URL box and it should post as normal.
  9. @smittyone@cox.net said I think that's something that ALL cameras struggle with. Some more than others, perhaps, but fast moving subjects coming at the camera is probably where AF struggles the most on all cameras.

  11. These are House Sparrows. An unpopular sparrow because of their invasive nature, but I'm not sure I'd call them ordinary.
  12. I agree with @IKLland, RAW files contain a lot more data and when it comes time for processing, allows for more flexibility in editing. Having said that, learning how to process digital images as good or better than the camera manufacture's digital image processor can be a challenge. Processing RAW images can also leave you with a photo worse than the camera's JPG image, if you don't know what your doing. As previously mentioned, shooting in RAW can have great advantages, it's not for everyone though. I now shoot in JPG for a few reasons, less and less of an interest in post processing being one of them.

  14. I thought Chipping Sparrow at first glance, but as @Avery pointed out, the eyeline doesn't continue in front of the eye. I'm not sure if I am seeing a weak eye ring or not, but I'm wondering if this might be a Brewer's Sparrow?
  15. I'd take a stab at it but I'd need such a big knife that all that would be left is a Red-tailed Hawk. 😁
  16. I don't put a lot of faith in anything more than a 48 hour forecast, and even that doesn't get a lot of faith in being accurate. I don't think I'd bet against the weatherman for money though. Murphy's Law dictates that it's more likely to rain on an event if you have money invested in it. Now that @Charlie Spencer has canceled his plans, Murphy's Law greatly reduces the chance of rain. It's just the way it is when Mother Nature follows Murphy's Law.

  19. I'm going to throw out a guess in favor of Sharp-shinned. That's strictly a guess based on what looks like a really small beak, and wings being pushed forward. I will add that I never put faith in wing position, but i think it's still an ID feature that might apply here. Wait for more experienced feedback.
  20. Your date in the title confused me @Charlie Spencer. I was wondering why you'd be canceling your plans based on a ten day forecast, but I see from the link that it's actually this weekend not the 17th-18th. It's a good thing you didn't make your plans based on the date in the title. I can just imagine your confusion on the 17th if you were as confused as I am. πŸ€ͺ
  21. Quoting @Kevin, "Didn't know that, thanks!" Didn't know what???...that I am slow??? I thought that would have been common knowledge by now. 😁
  22. Quoting @aveschapinas, "Yes, turning your phone to landscape position will often load the computer version of a website instead of the mobile version; it works on a lot of sites." It doesn't display the whole computer version of my text/edit box, but it does give me 9 of the 16 editing options that the computer version has, which is better than the 6 options I had with my phone held vertically. It would have been nice if those 3 extra options included tools for changing my font colour or size, but at least I can find the quote feature that is being talked about now. πŸ‘
  23. No @Kevin, I did not get a notification when you tagged me in the quote. It looks like a tag, but I wasn't tagged.
  24. I admit to being a little slow when it comes to using my phone on the internet, but I'll share something I just discovered, something that many people already know, but it might help someone as unaware as I was. Flipping your phone horizontally displays things that are hidden when your phone is held vertically, such as the quotation " icon needed to create a quote box. At least that's how my phone works. I seldom flip my phone, but when I did I found some extras. Try it, if you haven't already.
