    Whoah! Stunning. Hopefully the vagrant activity picks up down here, there’s lots of migrant warblers right now but no goodies! 

    I sometimes forget how much birds can vary from East to West. Here they are pretty much a trash bird because of how common they are. I'd love some western rarities to show around here. I have to say for my local 3 counties I think this has been the worst year since I started birdwatching in terms of rarities showing up. There has been nothing all summer...

    I'm with you on that. I'm not taking pictures for "likes" or artistic reasons, but because I like to take pictures and specifically of birds and other animals.

    Same, I also realize it doesn't matter how many ratings or likes a photo gets, as long as I'm happy with it. I was getting way too worked up over when my photos got bomb and all the criticism so I just basically stopped posting photos on ebird and don't post my really good photos anywhere online anymore.

  3. In Glennie, Michigan this morning. Never heard this song before. A flock of about 10 birds were feeding on the side of the road and spooked up into the trees by the car. I heard Chickadees and saw a chipping sparrow. This was a small finch-sized bird in a pine tree that never came into the open. My immediate thought was crossbills but I never got good looks.
