  1. It was refound and confirmed as an immature male Redstart this morning.
  2. Thanks! That's what I've settled on as well, glad to know that I settled on the same ID as you. There's certainly enough around here right now (I've had several over the past couple days). I know there's been discussion among some of the birders up here as far as the ID. My reviewer thinks it might be a Cape May (or redstart) and will be headed down to where the bird was early tomorrow morning, but I think the spectrogram is too low in pitch for that species. Hopefully it gets refound!
  3. Here's a question for those of you who hear eastern warblers singing much more often than me! Heard earlier today in coastal Humboldt County, CA for around five minutes before it stopped singing. I figured it was probably one of the Eastern warblers, but who knows. Under passerine spuh on this list. https://ebird.org/checklist/S182907778

  7. Yeah, the loud bird singing a sweet song throughout the recording is a Summer Tanager. No REVI at 0:39, that's just a Merlin error. As far as the bird making the descending "oh" call, it's hard to tell given how quiet it is, but I actually think it's probably the pheasant as well.
  8. Looks like a Black Tern in basic (nonbreeding) plumage to me.

  10. @IKLland Your BLGR photo is up on the ebird home page
  11. One is either a Song Sparrow or a Spotted Towhee, leaning towards Song Sparrow. Very weird song in any case. Two is definitely a MacGillivray's though!

  16. I did the same, didn't read through that proposal closely enough. Didn't realize they were trying for a three way split!

  18. Looks like a Mottled duck to me. Don't think we can 100% rule out a hybrid from just this angle though.
  19. Looks like the 2024 AOS proposals are out! 2024 Proposals - American Ornithological Society (americanornithology.org) I'm curious about everyone's thoughts on the submitted proposals. I believe the ones listed below are the ones that will affect us here in the ABA area. I'm very interested in which ones will pass! 1. The split of Cory's Shearwater into two species. (Scopoli's Shearwater and Cory's Shearwater) 2. The split of Herring Gull (European as one species and Smithsonian/Vega as another) 3. Split Brown Booby into two species (into Brewster's and Brown) 4. The lump of Hoary and Common Redpoll 5. The Split of Green-winged Teal (Common Teal and American Green-winged Teal) 6. The split of Red-shouldered Hawk (Lineatus/extimus as one species and elegans as another) 7. The split of American Pipit (rubescens and japonicus)
  20. I'd recognize that back anywhere! birdie 🐦 #751: πŸŸ©β¬›β¬›β¬›β¬›β¬› https://birdiegame.net/
