  1. Roughly the end of June, about the time the forum wasn't quite up, I saw a silhouettes of a bird I hadn't seen before from my sunroom window. All I could see was a buff body through my binoculars. Too many leaves in the way. The Merlin app suggested a cuckoo, but that sightings weren't common. We had an enormous house repair project going at the time, so I shelved my daily nature perusing for the most part. About 10 days later, after a huge rainstorm, I was looking out the window again. This time I got a really good look at the bird. It was a Yellow-billed Cuckoo. The white circles on the tail were magnificent. He looked just like the first photo on my Audubon app. Now that I know what he sounds like, I try to get my camera to get a photo of him. He's still around here. I heard him yesterday afternoon. Still, no luck with a photo, but I'm glad to add him to my growing list!
  2. Hello all, I'm so glad to see the forums back up. I was wondering where the category would be located if I wanted to discuss things like cameras, binoculars, and other equipment commonly used to enjoy birding. Will those kinds of topics be relegated to miscellaneous or general discussion? I'm just not sure where to look. Is anyone else even interested?
