  1. We're enjoying a nice sunny spring day right now, but the weather has been threatening storms for the past week or so, with some of them bringing severe downpours. This photo from Monday captures some of the weather that missed us this week.

    Clue #1

    A unique physical feature, (shared with only one other perching bird), makes up most of this bird's name.

    Clue #2

    This bird has relatives that share another unique feature that's not mentioned in the name. Hint, it's not the two white wing bars that this bird has.

    Nope, wrong.  I have that setting disabled and forgot it existed until @Kevin mentioned it.

    Ah, you must have changed that setting after telling me that's how you got one of my private messages in the past. You now understand the point I was getting at though, right. A private message will notify @Jagularr of any issues much faster than tagging him will.

    Odd, I see the alerts for both in the upper right at the same time.

    That's only when you are actively on Whatbird, right?  You get a email notification for private messages, right?  You dont know if you've been tagged or quoted until you open Whatbird and look at the upper right corner though, right? If you didn't visit Whatbird for days, you wouldn't know how much we were talking about you until you revisited the site again. Private messages send an email that might get your attention before you actually visit Whatbird.

    @Jagularr, it looks like we're down again.

    Thanks!

    Tagging @Jagularr will only alert him of the problem after  he logs into Whatbird. By sending a private message, which i just did, he gets alerted of the problem much sooner through the email that the private message generates.
