    Clue #1.

    This colour related bird is found in the east and builds it's nest near the ground in a shrub or young tree.

    Clue #2

    The female of this species defies the colour related hint in the first clue.


    Clue #3 

    While the male and female differ in colours, they both share the same unique ID feature.


  2. Not my longest long distance shot but this extreme crop is a favorite of mine. The Sandhill Cranes were on the far side of the sloping farmers field and I was shooting with a 400mm lens without image stabilization from about 500-600 feet away.

    hmmm. Really thought it was one of the two. 

    Orange-crowned Warbler?


    Don't forget to let others have a guess before guessing back to back. We don't want to monopolize the game and use up everyone else's guesses. 😉

    Yeah, my camera has that, but just seems like a lot of work. I usually don't post BOC photos, but just wanted to get this bird up. I'll check it out though, thanks!

    Once your camera and phone are paired, it'd simply be a matter of opening your camera app and selecting the photo from the app's gallery, I think. A little easier than opening your phone's camera, taking a photo of the back of your camera, then opening your phone's photo gallery to access the photo for uploading, I think. I have never used the upload/transfer feature of my Camera Connect app, but if it works as I suspect it does, I think it'd be as easy or easier than posting back of camera photos. I only know about the option, and only speculating on the ease of use, it might not be practical in actuality but i think it'd be worth looking into.

  5. I'm not sure of your camera's capabilities, but you may find this a useful alternative to posting back of camera pictures. The link below the quote is to Nikon's website but the same principle applies to most cameras.


    "All Z series Mirrorless cameras, select Nikon DSLRs and many COOLPIX compact digital cameras have wireless connectivity built-in.

    Using these cameras, you can seamlessly transfer images from your Bluetooth- or Wi-Fi®-enabled camera to your compatible smartphone or tablet for easy sharing via email, text or uploading to an image sharing site. And a great feature of Nikon cameras that feature wireless connectability is that you don't need to be at a Wi-Fi hotspot. The camera and your smart device create the connection."

    Smaller than most of the other birds of the same family. Thick neck and stout bird. Should be fairly easy

    There are a lot of birds in this family in the US. (More than 35)

    The family it's in can be small and stout, or really large, and not really stout. Saw the species I'm thinking of yesterday. (I was in NC)

    Ruddy Duck? Definetly one of the smaller ducks but I'm not sure about stout or thick necked.

    I see no reason to spoil the game for those that haven't already googled the answer. While the clues you provided may have been the exact clues that @neilpa may have used when he was ready to drop a clue, it's not our place to answer or provide clues for someone else's puzzle. 😉

    Spoiler: <Between Common and Purple?  I went with Purple based on the color of the reflection in the water.>

    @lonestranger, I asked your question in the game's comment section.

    Thanks for pointing out the clue I totally missed, and for taking my inquiry to the source. Much appreciated on both.
