  2. Taken on 10-3-2022 along the Tennessee River in Limestone County, AL.

    Can anyone tell what this bird is?

    I just got back from a trip to Nashville and Talladega.  The trip was not primarily for birding, but I did some birding here and there along the way.  This was my first time birding outside of California and Arizona, and I got several lifers that I am pleased with.  I was surprised at the scarcity of waterfowl on the lakes and rivers -- even at eBird hotspots.  And getting photos of the birds in the dense canopies was challenging.

    Congrats! A very quality lifer to get!

    Thanks.  I've got to go back and try to get some good photos.  That was 40+ feet up in a very tall sycamore -- and she was not being very cooperative.

    I got a Prothonatary Warbler yesterday! I was down in Fresno but didn't have any birding stuff with me. Ended up buying a pair of 25 dollar binoculars from target so I could go see it. Digibining didn't go so well through them. This is the best photo I got.

    That looks like a Yellow Warbler to me. ?

    Double-crested Cormorant (left), Probably Neotropic Cormorant (Right). Any other pics of the face on the second bird?

    Here is the best photo I have of the face.

    I didn't want to prejudice your opinion, but there was a Neotropic about 10-15 feet away from this one.  If this is a NECO, it's interesting that there is no white edging on the gular patch.

    There were about 40 Double-crested Cormorant's on and around this island -- mostly in the trees near this one.
