  1. You are absolutely crushing it with the owl sightings! Nice photos.
  2. White-eyed Vireo, my best non-hybrid find to date! Second county record, and particularly rare in fall in the region.
  3. Did one of you send a Western Kingbird my way? Because you missed my house by 0.65 miles. I'll take it though.
  4. I have nightmares about immature RSHA vs. BWHA (well, not really but you know what I mean). I'm going to bring this post back because I'd like to hear some features people are seeing that rule out BWHA. The dark throat is strong but not definitive evidence against BWHA; the lightly spotted tibial feathers on the other hand... favor BWHA.
  5. Today marks the 20th anniversary of my life list!!
  6. Here are my ratings (curious what others are seeing?): Low 4, high 3, 3, 3, 4.
  7. All but one of them are now overrated haha.
  8. To be clear, my "Thanks" reaction to this post is actually just a trophy. If somebody tops this I will be mightily impressed... six digits anyone??
  9. I just came across a page that tells you how many ratings you've made on eBird. 😂 https://ebird.org/quiz/ My count is 3202. I wonder who has the most on here?
  10. I would also give this a 5. I agree with @IKLland for 4 on this one; the resolution and lighting are both strikes. (Note @IKLland that the eBird guidelines don't mention anything other than the bird mattering for the rating.)
  11. The face is just blurry enough that I would personally give this a 4, even though the rest of the bird is pretty sharp. But your similar photo from the same checklist is awesome, a comfortable 5 from me!
  12. To quote another birder viewing this Brown Booby in Vermont, this is the "how the hell did I get here?!" look.
  13. ... how about of the flock a couple hundred feet out on the left??
  14. Haha any from Hellcat Dike? That's where I saw the closest Stilts.
  15. @BiffHayden One of my favorite birds, enjoy them while they're here! Nighthawk migration is too short. https://ebird.org/science/status-and-trends/comnig/abundance-map-weekly
  16. No photos of distant shorebird flocks that we can study?? 😉 Stilts were mingled with the yellowlegs and dowitchers at several spots!
