  1. How many baby bluebirds do you see in this photo? The babies have fledged now, but I’m a little stuck. At first, I thought there were three. The baby on the far right is obvious. And I thought the other visible head belonged to a body that was under the far right baby, and the the head of the far left body was underneath the other. But now I see two babies when I look at the photo. The nest contained a clutch of five. Two eggs didn’t hatch, I got rid of them after fledging. And as you can see, there are only two older babies in the second and third photos. So what happened to the ot
  2. That’s what I thought! Thank you for the confirmation. That’s a lifer for me. 😊
  3. I unfortunately wasn’t able to get a picture of the bird. I spotted it in my yard around 6:00 pm today, in West Michigan. It was tiny, and darted around in the trees very quickly, poking around as if looking for something. Teeny tiny little bill. Grayish/greenish on top. The breast looked white or pale gray, but shadows made it hard to tell. Undertail coverts were also white. It had a small yellow stripe or patch in the middle of its forehead in between two black stripes. There were markings of some kind on the wings, but I couldn’t see them clearly due to the bird’s constant movement. T
  4. American woodcock. Added it to my yard list too!
  5. I’ve been having huge flocks of red-winged blackbirds congregating in the fields behind my property. Also saw a newly arrived song sparrow and cowbird today.
  6. After watching them the past few days, they have to be one of my favorites!
  7. There are some very nice shots on this thread. My best photos of the day...not very good, but I was excited to add common redpolls to my yard list.
  8. Thank you for your help. I have bookmarked it, along with some other sites.
  9. I search for “whatbird forums” in Safari and click on the search result that normally takes me here. It’s like one of those scam pop-ups trying to get you to install an app, or give personal info. It’s not real though. I will try to get screenshot if it happens again.
  10. I hope I am posting this in the right place. When I try to access the forums, many times I am redirected to a page claiming my IPhone has multiple viruses, and the only way to fix it is install an app. I don’t, of course, as it is fake, but it is annoying, and it takes me several tries to get here. It has only happened on this website. I’m not sure if it is a problem with the site or my phone, but I thought I would let you know, just in case.
  11. Thank you! He is back right now, and I can agree that he looks like an immature white-crowned. I can see the stripes on his head more clearly now. I’ve seen the adults here before. He’s a little far north for this time of year, isn’t he?
  12. Hello everyone, I spotted this bird at my feeders in West Michigan today. I think it is a field sparrow, but technically they shouldn’t be here during the winter. It had a pale, unmarked breast, and a light pink/beige-ish beak. It also had a thin white eye ring. I for sure saw an American tree sparrow yesterday, but this bird is slightly different. Sorry for the poor quality photos, I was trying to take a picture through my binoculars!
