  2. birdie #664: 休休抽漎漎 https://birdiegame.net/ I knew what bird it was on the third photo, at least I thought I did until I had to name it. The name totally eluded me until that DUH moment when I found the name in my guide.
  3. The answer came up the same time I posted.
  4. Had it not been for the fruit hint, I would have tried Horned Lark, but I like @Avery's guess.
  5. I only got a brief glimpse of the shape as it flew by so I can't identify the species with certainty but a Swallow just zipped by a few inches off the ground. I think it was a Barn Swallow but haven't waited for a second sighting to confirm that. So I will just say that the Swallows are now showing up here in Southern Ontario.
  6. BRDL 780 甽 佞佞佞 I started with a new random guess today and then got lucky when I tried my usual second guess.
  7. birdie 弛 #663: 劾抽漎漎漎 https://birdiegame.net/ I was pretty sure my first guess would be wrong but I didn't know where else to start. I had no idea that being so far off base on my first guess would give me such an advantage for my second guess.

  10. Clue #2. It's summer range is mostly in Canada so many States will only see them during migration, with the exception of a few Northern States within their summer range and the few States where they winter. The term "widespread" refers to the coverage on a range map, not the density of the bird population.
  11. Clue #1. This common bird is widespread and is easily identified by its call, even for me. It's bill colour is one way to distinguish it from its most similar looking relative.
  12. I'll need a few hours to think of a bird and clues. Hopefully I'll have something before the west coast is awake.

  14. birdie #661: 抽漎漎漎漎 https://birdiegame.net/ I was pretty sure I wasn't familiar with this bird so I guessed accordingly and got lucky.

  17. I haven't found it, yet, but this link makes the image larger on the screen, especially when you click on the photo. You can also zoom in tighter after enlarging the image for more magnification, if needed. https://cdn.download.ams.birds.cornell.edu/api/v1/asset/615825842/2400
  18. That is how I was interpreting the clues but I don't know which birds have been split in the past so I was kind of stumped. Being stumped is a sign of a challenging puzzle though.
  19. That is the conclusion I came to, while I didn't trust myself to make the call originally, I do trust the opinions of those calling it a Peregrine Falcon.
