  1. Are you referring to the Cypress Swamp Boardwalk or Whatbird Forums? ??
  2. That's just as tough a photo to work with but it gives me an Eastern Bluebird kind of feel. I might think differently once I see it on the computer but I'm limited to my phone right now so I reserve the right to blame my phone if I'm way off on my guess.
  3. Welcome to Whatbird, @mike mountian. If it looks like an oddly plumage Cardinal, that might be exactly what it is. Just speculating of course. If the bird is recurring, try to get a photo as that will help a lot, even a poor cell phone photo can be helpful if that's all you have to work with. Without a photo we can speculate on your new visitor, but a photo will greatly increase the chances of getting a definitive ID.
  4. I can't really tell much from that first photo and wonder if the original photo, without the photoshopping, might be worth looking at.
  5. That was probably the toughest first letter I've ever gotten. BRDL 272 ???? ???? ???? ???? ????

  7. Did anyone else guess >Barn Swallow< on their first guess? @Charlie Spencer?
  8. I'm not THAT old, I just made an old guy mistake. I thought that there was a connection to your "Suzie" name suggestion and the mention of the song stuck in your head. I was drawing a blank on what song you were referring to so I turned to Google for "Suzie" song suggestions. The results I posted just make me look old.....and show that I have better taste in music than you do.
  9. Musky the muskrat??? Muskett the muskrat? Bill? Sam? Samantha? ?
  10. @Hasan, I was quickly clicking through the warblers in the learn section when I saw a photo of an Ovenbird connected to the Orange-crowned Warbler. At least that's what I think I saw, I was clicking fast just to see the selection of subjects and was already looking at the next photo before I realized what I saw and couldn't find a back button to verify it. There is no photo attached to the Ovenbird recording so I suspect there's a mix up or two to be sorted out.

  13. Broad-winged was my initial suspicion but I lacked the confidence to suggest it since they should all be gone by now, shouldn't they? Is the timing the trigger for 'rare', or is the location the reason for the rarity?
  14. Isn't that tail pattern off for a Red-tailed?
  15. This is a Wren, @JayP. I think it's a House Wren but to be honest, I'm not sure how to rule out other possibilities. Wait for more feedback.

  17. Thanks for the reminder, @chica. I agree that 'how' the bird was identified is just as valuable information as 'what' the bird's ID is. A simple ID might be all the poster is looking for, but there's many others, like myself, that are looking for some education beyond the birds name so pointing out distinguishing features is always appreciated.
  18. Failed. I had the first two letters positioned on my second guess leaving me with 88 possibilities. If I had of gotten the last two letters first it probably would have been a lot easier with only 51 possibilities to chose from. I should have wasted a few guesses to eliminate some letters but that's hindsight for you.

  20. You may want to plan something for lunch, too. After flying way out of range, @Quiscalus quiscula will need to rest and replenish enough energy for the return flight home.
