  1. Here's a fun question for everyone who has birded a bit in the US. How many state birds have you photographed within their respective states?

    I looked through them all, and I have photographed these birds within their states:

    • Arizona - Cactus Wren
    • Connecticut - American Robin
    • Georgia - Brown Thrasher
    • Nevada - Mountain Bluebird
    • Rhode Island - Rhode Island Red (domestic chicken breed)
    • South Carolina - Carolina Wren
    • Utah - California Gull

    @Kevin If you thought yesterday's looked like a rock, then you haven't seen today's. πŸ˜€

    I have seen but not photographed this bird.

    I find this bird's name rather amusing.

    Dang misclick. Should've had it in one. Yep, that's definitely a Β»Brown BoobyΒ«.

    I was in the right family the whole time. I have photographed this bird before.

    I try to start off by not using the guide, but if it's an unfamiliar individual of a large family (especially warblers), I may bust out the guide. I almost always use a guide on the last guess if I'm not certain, although I didn't on this particular one.

    Nope. I haven't seen this bird, either.

    A familiar bird

  15. Wow, this is really useful. I've had plenty of instances of wanting to know more information about a hotspot that has had recent checklists but doesn't have a website, only to turn up and find that it...

    • is closed to the general public
    • requires a permit
    • requires a reservation
    • is private property, but the previous owner allowed stakeouts
    • was redeveloped into apartments last year
    • hosts a farmer's market or festival
    • closes early
    • opens late
    • closes one day a week (guess what today is?)
    • costs $20 per vehicle
    • costs $20 per axle
    • costs $20 per person
    • requires a sturdy truck with 4-wheel drive
    • has no water in the stream 48 weeks of the year
    • is muddy
    • floods frequently or requires wading
    • smells like skunk, manure, dead fish, paper mill, or garbage
    • has no details of exactly which trail will lead to activity
    • starts with a 2-mile uphill hike before you get to anything interesting
    • has all the interesting spots closed for maintenance
    • has all the interesting spots closed for maintenance, but you don't find out until after you've paid $20 admission
    • requires detailed directions to avoid dead-end dirt roads with gates
    • has an unmarked parking area nowhere near the hotspot marker

    Yes, most of these examples are real…

    For instance, that Utah trip left me with little time to research places beforehand, and I probably wasted a full day driving to places I couldn't get in. My father also took a trip in late 2020 where several places were closed due to COVID restrictions.
