  1. Me neither! birdie πŸ¦ƒ #181: πŸŸ₯πŸŸ₯πŸŸ©β¬›β¬›β¬› https://birdiegame.net/
  2. New York state's first Limpkin is near ... Niagara Falls?! In/near Lewiston. Where predicted highs are going to be in the 30s, and an inch or two of snow could fall in the coming days. https://ebird.org/checklist/S122470245

  6. Me too. I was already thinking the correct species, then I saw the photographer's name ... birdie πŸ¦‰ #176: πŸŸ©β¬›β¬›β¬›β¬›β¬› https://birdiegame.net/ My life sighting of this species was not all that far from where today's bird was photographed, in a neighboring county, some 16 years ago.
  7. Smooth-billed Ani in South Padre Island, Cameron County, Texas, a state first! https://ebird.org/tx/checklist/S122263615. Seen through this morning. Eurasian Marsh-Harrier in Morris County, New Jersey!! Possibly the bird found in Maine this past August? https://ebird.org/nj/checklist/S122138206. So far only eBirded there on the 9th, Wednesday. Too bad it's not there any more, it's really close to an interstate and no more than 4.5 hours drive for me. The only other records in eBird for North America are a long-staying bird in Bermuda in 2015 & 2016, and the 1994 Virginia bird.

Only one code fit the parameters, and it was wrong. Then I went to the other site, and found the correct answer. I have heard of this species though I probably never will see it.
  10. The silent Red-breasted Nuthatch that flew toward me on my binocular-less morning walk as I stood under its pine tree trying to figure out the identity of a calling bird (which remained unseen, ).
  11. birdie 🦒 #174: πŸŸ₯πŸŸ₯πŸŸ₯πŸŸ©β¬›β¬› https://birdiegame.net/ In my defense I live in a part of the country where this bird is not common. I last saw this species a year ago. @Birds are cool, that's a nice photo!

  13. I hadn't considered Zitting Cisticola for #1, and I agree with that assessment. The plover is actually #6, not #4. What is photo #5? (The Chiffchaff is #7 & #8.)
  14. Thank you! I had no problem accessing the parent whatbird site while the forum is down. Now, it's the reverse situation.
  15. I'm glad that the forum is back. However, now I'm having trouble with the parent whatbird dot com site.
  16. Almost blew it! And I've seen this bird (only 2 or 3 times though) birdie πŸ¦ƒ #172: πŸŸ₯πŸŸ₯πŸŸ₯πŸŸ₯🟨🟩 https://birdiegame.net/

  18. Have you considered Cetti's Warbler for #1 and Chiffchaff for the last two? They are both year-round residents in Portugal while look-alike species are summer birds. NB: my knowledge of European birds is very rusty, and I'm going by maps in the first edition of the Collins Bird Guide.
  19. Some identification information here: https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Black-capped_Chickadee/species-compare/68055161
