    NC is the best state! Totally not biased or anything.

    North Carolina's pretty nice, but New York State's better! We have the best bird habitat from the Adirondacks to the finger lakes region. We have lots of forest and border two great lakes and the atlantic ocean. Plus, Long island and central park are hotspots for migrating birds! Here in upstate new york, we have a central park too. The birds are not restricted to the city.

    What part, when, and how long?  Were you a birder at that time?

    I'm considering retiring in NC in a few years.  I'd love to be in Asheville but the cost of living is higher there.   I'll probably aim for somewhere closer to midway between mountains and beach.

    I visited for about a month near Hendersonville. Unfortunately I wasn't a birder at that time.

    I don't follow you here... nobody's reputation has been changed. And it still means little if anything. It's simply a total of the number of times other users have clicked on ANY of the reactions to your content. And I certainly hope nobody is posting in an effort to "earn" reputation points. I suggest that everyone ignore the reputation scores and try to participate in the forums in a way that will enhance the community. 

    (By the way, I'm not trying to defend the update, which I had nothing to do with... but I see no purpose to the reputation scores except to create friction and resentment. I'd get rid of it completely if it were up to me.)

    I agree. If anything, the post number would be a better indicator of how much a member has participated in the community.

    Hmm...My impression was that the yellow color is exaggerated by the lighting and it looks like a bigger bird because of the smaller head in proportion to the wings.  But, of course, I have nothing else to compare to.

    Same here. I'm not sure we can identify from this perspective, as we can't even see the entire tail for proportions.
