  3. I asked for and received the Terns Of North America A Photgraphic Guide by Cameron Cox.
  4. Welcome to Whatbird, ssjgotenks! That is a tiny-looking Sharp-shinned Hawk you photographed. Please feel free to post any future identification questions here.
  5. I recall reading this too, somewhere/sometime. My gut take is that the face on this bird looks dark for YBSA. But, I haven't compared the photographs here with other photos.
  6. I'm up to 44 species, with 8 year birds around noontime in my county, including the 2 Red-breasted Merganser females that prompted my journey. Fortunately they were always on the edge of the 200 to 300 Common Mergansers swimming around the lake.
  7. The two Red-breasted Mergansers (uncommon to rare in my county especially in January) that I drove 40 minutes to see

  9. DO IT!!! I've given a little thought to flying down to Corpus Christi to see Caty the Cattle Tyrant.
  10. That was also my first guess

  14. Two birds I wouldn't expect to be on too many checklists together. What a nice way to start birding in that county!
  15. I went out again mid-afternoon, and saw six more species, which brings me up to 30.
  16. My first bird was American Crow. My fifth species was Bald Eagle. We were birding by a small lake, it started to sprinkle, we were cold. So we went home and made pancakes for lunch. It's still overcast and has even snowed a little bit. So we're still at home. I saw 24 species today. I've done worse on January firsts, and I've done better.

  18. I understand!! I'm tempted to look for the wintering ouf-of-range Black-throated Gray Warbler today even though I saw it yesterday.
  19. As predicted, my first species of the year, a few minutes ago (it's 7:15 right now and sunrise is in a few minutes and it's cloudy and our curtains are still closed).
  20. The pair of self-found Swallow-tailed Kites while looking for the nesting Mississippi Kites in my home county tops my list of favorite birds. The two American Flamingos in south-central Pennsylvania are a close second. Finding my first Kentucky Warbler and Mourning Warbler in many years were also faves.
