    Back to the weirder birds. I've at least heard of this one.

    Almost went with the ยปEastern Phoebeยซ for my first guess, but I know it doesn't have those tail markings.

    Wow, three birds in a row that I've photographed.

    Especially since the majority of the birds Iโ€™m missing (SNOW, SNBU, GYRF, HOLA, STGR, SEOW) require driving aimlessly around back country roads for hours.

    Besides the lark, every one of those would be a lifer for me. ๐Ÿ˜€

    I have not seen this bird. With the sheer number of non-ABA species, I feel like this game has just become shotgunning letters until you happen to hit one or more, then guessing until something is accepted. Maybe one game a week has been a species I recognize.

    Nope, even when using the list. Never heard of this one.

  9. Ah, the last few posts reminded me of my father.

    You might be a bird photographer if you have a highly detailed log of every single good photo you've taken on a film DSLR (in the days before embedded metadata), including the exact location, shutter speed, f-stop, lens, focal length, film ISO...but not the actual date you took the picture. This made it difficult to date some of the trips we took 20+ years ago.

    Home do you copy and post your stats like that when you lose?ย 

    I play it again with the same guesses but replace the last one with the correct guess, then I change it to my actual guess after I copy it. (I make other guesses if I lack a feather or egg icon and need one.) I typically play it on my computer; it's probably a little trickier to do that on a phone.

    I was imagining a ยปmuch smallerยซ bird. These birds are quite noisy.

    With the exception of a few unique birds, I am a long way from IDing birds by leg/feet colour.

    Even birds I've seen a lot can stump me when the game starts with a feature I don't typically look at unless it's the key differentiator between two very similar species. Heck, I should've gotten that Baird's Sandpiper on the first guess because of the gray legs, but I figured they were black in bright lighting and went with some plover, followed up with the Semipalmated and Western Sandpipers.

    I guess my biggest takeaway from this game is I need to study tails and talons for different families.

    Fail. Wow, that was a difficult one. I didn't even have many letters left.

    I got the first word, and I wasn't sure what family it belonged to because the wing picture really threw me off.
