  3. I had three letters in the right place after my third guess, couldn't pull off the last letter though.
  4. It's only easy when you know the answers. ? birdie #13: ?????? https://birdiegame.net/
  5. I may have been one of those concerned about the next topic issue some 70 odd pages ago, PaulK. I'm willing to risk an accidental spoiler now, both giving and/or receiving, if it means we don't have to be so concerned about what we say regarding the current game.
  6. Discuss it here. It seems like many of us try to explain our game without revealing too much when we post our results. I suggest that we stop worrying about revealing too much and discuss the current game openly when we post our results. If everyone does the puzzle before looking here, the comments won't spoil the game, and the discussion will be relevant to the day's current puzzle.
  7. How does everyone feel about hints/spoilers being discussed about the current game? I know some people drop little hints, sometimes without knowing it, and sometimes there's bigger hints, like the one I dropped above. While my hint doesn't reveal the bird, it does eliminate a lot of options which makes it a pretty big hint. Unless there are major objections, I suggest that we discuss the current game regardless of the spoilers we might leave behind, instead of trying to discuss it in private or waiting until the next day. For those of us that don't want any spoilers, it's as simple as doing the daily BRDL before we check this thread. We'd have to give everyone a chance to adjust to spoilers being discussed before dropping really obvious spoilers, but I think it's worth considering. Any thoughts?
  8. I had to spam the last/2nd letter and then look up the bird because my iBird list doesn't include this bird. BRDL 130 ???? ???? ???? ???? ????
  9. Welcome to Whatbird, Werebird. There's no need to avoid @Charlie Spencer, he's not a bad guy, he's just a little misunderstood at times, especially when he tries to be funny. ?
  10. It is possible that you saw a Common Nighthawk, @Mindy Smith, they're not strictly a night bird and probably the best match for your description.
  11. My first thought was Northern Mockingbird. The 5th and 7th photos in the link have the wings spread open showing the white wing patches from both above and below. https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Northern_Mockingbird/id
  12. I'm having a hard time seeing this as tail feathers. I'm not a feather expert but I don't think a feather shaft would branch out like this. I'm more inclined to agree with @Aveschapines, to me it looks like the goose has some sort of vegetation in its mouth.

  15. The beak looks big in the first photo but normal in the second photo, where a hint of the red tail is showing.
  16. The two links to the photos work and both show as being unconfirmed. The link to the checklist shows the single photo of the two Mottled Ducks together. That's what I see but I don't have an eBird account so others may see things differently.

  18. Grrrr. I did NOT solve today's puzzle in one guess, this is actually my forth guess. I referred to the banding code list after my third guess, but when I went back to BRDL, the page reloaded and my first three guesses were gone. BRDL 128 ????
  19. Maybe not my best, but definitely my most unique Red-tailed Hawk photo.
  20. No luck for me today. birdie #10: ?????? https://birdiegame.net/
