  1. I had one get accepted, and another one was just merged into a nearby hotspot.
  2. It used to be me as well, until I found a hobby that requires being up in the morning.
  3. birdie πŸ¦ƒ #261: πŸŸ₯πŸŸ₯πŸŸ₯πŸŸ¨πŸŸ©β¬› One of the few Code 1 birds I still haven't seen in this family.

  5. I'd like to add an addendum: I seriously did not see this post before making the comment about the Willow Flycatcher in my previous comment. The Acadian Flycatcher was the first tricky bird I thought of that was very common in the southeast, then I looked at range maps of similar empids to pick out one that was uncommon in central Georgia to use as an example. I apologize to @Birds are cool if you thought I was poking fun at your query. It was genuinely a coincidence.
  6. Disclaimer: I am not a reviewer. This is just food for thought. πŸ™‚ Being a reviewer is a volunteer job. You'll be wading through "identified by Merlin" rarities that couldn't be more incorrect, modifying the local filters as trends change, and e-mailing the sleepyhead who attached a Northern Mockingbird photo to their Northern Shoveler report. Whenever birders in your community submit their rare sightings, it'll be you making the executive decision whether or not it should be approved and become a part of the permanent record. Is that blurry photo actually a Willow Flycatcher, or is it the much more common (in your county) Acadian Flycatcher? Did they actually positively identify it by sound? How about the description? @Tony Leukering shared this document on quality descriptions; it might be nearly 20 years old but it still holds true. This discussion became a bit heated that it had to be locked, and it would be you in the position to settle the debate. Someone submitted a personal location as a public hotspot. If it isn't obvious like a newly opened preserve (or a mistake like a location named "my home"), you may have to drive there and investigate. If you decide to take a vacation, the sightings won't just stop. They'll still be there, waiting for your review, when you get back. You might even start getting e-mails about why "obvious" sightings aren't getting approved. Are you up to the task?
  7. birdie πŸ¦† #260: πŸŸ₯πŸŸ¨πŸŸ¨πŸŸ©β¬›β¬› Yeah, I'm just as confused as everyone else. I want to call this something like a Β»Cape May WarblerΒ«.
  8. BRDL 377 πŸͺΆπŸ₯šπŸͺΆπŸ₯š 🐦πŸͺΆπŸ₯šπŸ₯š πŸ₯šπŸ₯šπŸ¦πŸͺΆ 🐦🐦🐦🐦 Interesting choice. I was wondering if I had mixed up the code for Β»Barrow's GoldeneyeΒ«, but apparently this one has two different meanings depending on banding authority.
  9. Another visit to the bird preserve, and I found an out-of-season Blue-winged Teal, along with three other FOYs: Tree Swallow, Virginia Rail, and Vermilion Flycatcher. https://ebird.org/checklist/S127521292
  10. birdie 🐦 #259: πŸŸ₯πŸŸ¨πŸŸ¨πŸŸ¨πŸŸ©β¬› I see several others folks guessed the same three birds beforehand.

  12. birdie πŸ¦ƒ #258: πŸŸ¨πŸŸ©β¬›β¬›β¬›β¬› Familiar, but one I mostly hear.

  14. I went out on my break and saw a huge cloud of starlings: https://ebird.org/checklist/S127426459
  15. Love the location name. πŸ˜„
