  1. Organize bird photos? Ummm, mine are organized by the date taken, which the camera and computer do automatically. Are you saying there's more to organizing bird photos than that???
  2. Do any of the Kites have a dark morph? Kite was my first thought but I don't know the markings or morphs well enough to venture a guess.
  3. This grackle fight from a few years ago was one of the most intense fights I have ever seen. While they both flew away afterwards, I wasn't so sure that was going to be the outcome.
  4. That's it. I got the curved bill and fanned tail directly from iBird's description but I thought the "startling bird" comment might be the most helpful clue, was it?
  5. Nope, not a thrasher, although the description could have fit any one of them.
  6. Just don't turn it back on after you turn it off. I'm just being a silly, I know not what I talk about.
  7. Mostly brown bird, bigger than a Blue Jay, fan shaped tail, with a curved bill. A very startling bird.
  8. I'm not sure how many members in these forums can offer help with the iBird apps. I suggest using the Contact Us link from the iBird website and send a direct request for help from there. Hopefully that will help since there seems to be little support available from this website.
  9. I'm having a hard time interpreting "medium sized bird" so this guess could be WAY off. Black-crowned Night Heron is kind of a medium sized bird if Great Blue Heron is large and sandpipers are considered small. Black-crowned Night Heron could also be considered a sort of large bird, which would make my guess WAY off. Like they say, size is hard to judge sometimes. Black-crowned Night Heron???
  10. I'll bet that you are to blame for the feeder being empty, aren't you?
  11. This one was a too close mistake on my part back in 2009. I was walking the edge of a roadside picnic site looking for something to photograph when I heard birds making a commotion and sounding alarm calls. This piqued my curiosity so I wandered towards the sound to see if I could figure out what the commotion was all about. Well, it turns out that I was the cause of the commotion, or at minimum, added to the commotion. I was unknowingly getting closer and closer to this Yellow Warbler fledgling that ignored mom and dad's warning calls while I was misinterpreting them.
  12. Are you saying @The Bird Nuts is a poor artist?...or....
  13. There was more than one oddball in this flock of Canada Geese. Gives a new meaning to, landing gear up.
  14. All I have to do is move a little bit and the nice sharp photo of the branch is ruined.
  15. Welcome to WhatBird, @Lisa NJ. Eastern Towhee was my first thought too. The example in the linked photo might match the orange breast and wing bar you referred to. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/275903281
  16. Nice photos @BigOly, but the bird of the week is Common Yellowthroat.
  17. I only see one advantage to a separate Gull sub-forum, I wouldn't have to wade through all the gull IDs that I have no interest in. Nothing against gulls, it's just that I seldom see them and have no interest in learning the subtle differences for the odd time I do see them.
  18. I have better shots of Common Yellowthroats, but I always liked this shot of a male feeding it's adopted, and much larger Brown Cowbird.
  19. Aw shucks, all this attention is embarrassing.
