  1. Kevin, Finally got around to using Merlin for bird ID'ing, so thanks again. 22 new birds in the one location. Nothing unexpected for Dhaka, but among the latest was a Brahminy Kite who was kind enough to land right in front of me. Now slowly going through pictures from 2 summers ago in Portugal [where I also didn't have an ID book].
  2. Thanks again. I'm not a Luddite, but my IOS devices are so old that Merlin won't run on them (needs 11 or higher). One of these days I'll get around to downloading an emulator for my laptop so I can actually access apps newer than 2011. And if you want to make the long drive to Illinois, this just happened: https://twitter.com/skwinnicki/status/1327720035863965696
  3. Wow, that is very helpful. I had no idea bar charts existed. I've got lots of stuff I never reported b/c I couldn't figure out how to identify the birds (e.g., travelled to a country where I didn't have an ID guide). Sorting through them will be a lot easier than my usual 'hit or miss' approach. Thanks for putting in the time to help.
  4. Excellent, thanks! I was using birding hotspots on ebird to try to find it, but was only using the search term 'woodpecker.' Brand new to me as were a few other birds that day.
  5. I realize these aren't great photos, but any suggestions on this woodpecker in Dhaka, Bangladesh? Seen working the same area as a Fulvous-breasted Woodpecker. Its back did not have any barring. It's head was only partially red. I've only just moved here and don't have a guidebook for India/Bangladesh. Thanks in advance.
