  1. After seeing the 2 White-fronted Geese and 4 Cackling Geese at the same place in DC, along with some other species, I am up to 65 species. Possibly tomorrow I will chase the wintering Black-throated Gray Warbler south of DC in Maryland.
  2. I didn't figure it out today. I have seen this species though.
  3. It's definitely a Red-shouldered Hawk, an adult.
  4. I agree that the raptor is a Zone-tailed Hawk. I can't help with the audio, which I can hear.
  5. Thanks! One of those codes, I see. I seriously doubt I could have figured it out. At least the first "S" would be correct, since I start with SORA whenever I play.
  6. In the 90s I saw a brown heron-type in flight, headed toward a road, at Chincoteague NWR in coastal Virginia. Just as I was realizing that it was an American Bittern and not a juvenile night-heron, it hit some electrical wires just the wrong way and electrocuted itself. I immediately got in my car, drove to where the bittern had fallen, put the bird in my trunk, and drove to the visitor's center. After a short conversation, I handed it over to the ranger, who was going to put it in a freezer and eventually take it to a museum. When I got home, I thought about the situation for a few minutes and decided to count it on my day/year/county lists because I had just about arrived at the identification as the bird's death occurred.
  7. What was the BRDL? I haven't played that game in some days.
  8. Indeed! birdie 🐦 #231: 🟨🟩⬛⬛⬛⬛ https://birdiegame.net/
  9. Oh yeah, that slipped by me. It is more similar to Hairy though than the "Ivory-billed" is to a real Ivory-billed.
  10. That's quite a photo of Ivory-billed Woodpecker in that article.
  11. If I'd gone with my second thought, I would have figured it out in two birdie 🦢 #230: 🟥🟥🟩⬛⬛⬛ https://birdiegame.net/
  12. In Atlanta it's going to be a Common Grackle.
  13. Short-tailed works for me. Dark red-tails including Harlan's are extremely rare in Florida, looking at eBird sightings.

  15. I can only hear the sound of an interesting band that my wife and I need to check out 😇

  18. Dang! (and thanks!) The weekend is the earliest possible time I could go. If I can go.
