    Agreed, Nashville.

    That's funny.  I recognized the bird, but I wrote down Tennessee.  Then later I thought, wait I've never seen a Tennessee Warbler before.  And I started looking at Tennessee Warblers and realized that wasn't the bird I saw.  But I couldn't get my mind to separate Nashville and Tennessee into two different birds.

    I think the small grebe with the Western Grebe, and the other one with the Pied-billed Grebe, are both Eared Grebes.  I'm wondering if the last one by itself is a Horned Grebe, which I've never seen before.

  3. I believe I saw the Wood Warbler in Signal Hill, CA today.  I was there from 2:00 - 4:30pm.  The bird showed up for about 2 minutes high in a eucalyptus at 180 East Columbia Street.  Another birder pointed it out.  I got 6 photos of it, but from my photos, I would not be able to positively identify it as a Wood Warbler.  Hopefully it will hang around for a while and I will get another chance at it.

  5. 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.
