  1. I know it isn't a great caption shot so I'll pick a winner tomorrow evening and speed things along. Last call for Captions.

  3. birdie ? #55: ????⬛⬛ https://birdiegame.net/ Accidental double tap on my second guess.
  4. I can explain that with, it's just been one of those days. @Kevin, would you be able to move that errant BRDL post of mine to the right thread, please and thank you.

  7. Welcome to Whatbird, @Birder. I just checked eBird's rarity page and there's confirmed sightings from the 10th, 11th, and 12th, but nothing listed yet for the 13th that I could find. Hopefully it sticks around for those chasing it. Good luck in your search.
  8. 20ish games old but obviously worth repeating. ?
  9. LOL...my first thought was Great Horned Owl but I convinced myself it was more complicated than that and went with Northern Hawk Owl for my first guess...LOL
  10. I'm going to guess that it's the color of the beak that is the big clue that I didn't know about. Combining the dark beak of the young one with the bit of plumage shown in that first shot could be a dead giveaway, if you knew enough to rule out the other dark billed owls.
  11. Okay, I'm curious about this dead giveaway. I see the owlet's beak but I don't know anything about the beaks of young owls. Is a young Great Horned Owl's beak different than other young owls? Or is there something else I'm missing?

  14. I think I see the dead giveaway, but I can't figure out what makes it a dead giveaway or how it would rule out other possibilities. Care to explain what I'm missing, or is the dead giveaway something in the plumage itself that I'm missing? I can wait until tomorrow if your explanation is more than you want to reveal today.
  15. Since @Birds are cool doesn't have access to his/her(?) own photos, we'll go with one of my photos. Caption this...
  16. If that isn't your photo @Birds are cool, you shouldn't be posting it. Please read the Forum Rules posted at the top of the page.
  17. How are you making out with your photo processing? Have you been able to keep up or are you like me and having to restrain your shutter finger and redefine what makes a keeper just to limit transfer, viewing, and post processing time?

  20. Thanks Bird Brain. I'm going to pass my turn over to @Birds are cool and let him/her(?) post a photo and pick the winner for this round.
  21. In all the years that I've had video capability, 15 years or more, I have only made a handful of videos and most of them were to document maintenance issues with my previous landlady. I don't even think of shooting video of birds unless I specifically set out with video in mind before hand, such as when I know we'll be hand feeding birds at my nephew's cottage. I suppose I should sign up with you guys for lessons on how to get more out of our cameras....I'll make sure to look into that later. Words I have never used before on this subject. ?
  22. BRDL 168 ???? ???? ???? ???? ???? ???? I had it down to species on the first guess and had lots of options until my fifth guess when the index was needed to come up with the last possible solution for the letters I had left to choose from. Well wasn't I surprised to see that my last option for that species wasn't the right one. With the help of the banding code search feature, I was able to see the error of my ways and correct it for the final guess.
