  1. Could have been better if lighting conditions were better, but I finally got a pic of a Dickcissel. Feels like a pretty overdue photo-lifer. :) https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/450174711
  2. Merg with merglets :) https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/449268121
  3. Hard to pick just one today, so hope no-one minds two. :) Apparently taking pics of birds with their beaks wide open was my priority today. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/445430011 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/445379091
  4. Actually managed this with no list :) BRDL 104 甽 甽 佞 佞佞佞 佞佞佞
  5. First time ever seeing a Least Bittern, and he was surprisingly cooperative :) Managed to get a couple of decent shots, even though the light was behind him. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/444261381

  10. Prairie Warbler popped out right in front of me and sang a few times. Even with the small branch in the way, I really like how this came out. :) https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/441050261

  21. I counted 462, counting by ones. Give or take a couple that might have been overlapping, but I would say that's an accurate count.

  23. Cardinals don't always show their crest - they can keep it completely down and have a smooth looking head if they're particularly relaxed. They normally show their crest when they're worked up about something. Song Sparrows are not as large as a Robin or a pigeon, but they are fairly chunky compared to many other sparrows. Depending on what angle you're seeing them from though, they can look deceptively large.
  24. Agreed with Northern Cardinal (adding on that it's a female) and Song Sparrow. For the Cardinal, on the first pic, the colours look fine for a female - brown body with reddish wings. The second picture shows off its chunky orange/red beak nicely too. Other than that, all the proportions like body shape/size, wing length, and tail length look fine for Northern Cardinal. For the Song Sparrow, it has the expected rufous streaking on the breast with a dark spot in the middle, and it also has the same coloured striping on its face. Again, proportions look good for Song Sparrow, particularly the beak shape/size, and the long tail. Hope that helps! :)
