  1. Two checklists today: https://ebird.org/checklist/S119561071 - I was worried that Hurricane Ian would prevent me from leaving my building and wasn't going to ruin my checklist streak, so I looked through the balcony glass door until I saw some birds. https://ebird.org/checklist/S119574112 - It was windy, but safe enough to go outside. I hate sitting on my butt all day, so I took a quick walk around the neighborhood. Very rare for me to have a travelling protocol checklist longer than a few minutes without photos, but I didn't bring a camera, and there was no point in taking iPhone photos of the common species I encountered.
  2. Ty 4 checking up on me. No problems at all, as Hurricane Ian affected the west coast much worse. We've gotten tons of rain the last 2 days and it was very windy. That's all. I was lucky though, as last night a tornado badly trashed a community 11 miles from me. The only "harm" I incurred was having to cancel tonight's Chinese restaurant dinner plans, due to a local tornado watch.
  3. Three checklists today: https://ebird.org/checklist/S119468467 - Good day at the hotspot. https://ebird.org/checklist/S119471513 - Got a Northern Waterthrush lifer. https://ebird.org/checklist/S119472750 - Not too thrilling, but better than watching television for 18 minutes. 🙂

  5. Ty - This was already cropped, but yours looks better. I was worried about pixelating too much with more of a crop and lacked the patience to try different versions. Here is the original:
  6. I'm still figuring out my new camera. I take better pics using the viewfinder than the screen that I started out using. This is the best in flight photo I've ever taken. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/487794821
  7. Normal day at the hotspot: https://ebird.org/checklist/S119405654
  8. I can't make up my mind. The Red-bellied Woodpecker is a higher-quality photograph, but the first pic tells more of a story and may therefore more appropriately define "best." https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/487418241 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/487418361
  9. I don't remember - not that important of an ID, as there is 0% chance this is a lifer.
  10. Normal day at the hotspot. I was hoping for a lifer warbler or 2, but nobody saw any warblers: https://ebird.org/checklist/S119333353
  11. Slow day, but it's always good to get out for walk: https://ebird.org/checklist/S119282070
  12. I've never seen a momma duck giving one of her ducklings a ride before. 🙂 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/486736421
  13. Boring - https://ebird.org/checklist/S119203322 Boring - https://ebird.org/checklist/S119204170 Decent number of species for the short walk - https://ebird.org/checklist/S119207433
  14. I've been hearing RSHA calls at the hotspot a lot recently, but finally saw one: https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/486557831
  15. If don't mind sharing, what's that number? I respect your privacy if you'd rather not.
  16. Three checklists today: https://ebird.org/checklist/S119036092 https://ebird.org/checklist/S119038228 The first 2 were pretty short and boring, but then I got I lifer Baltimore Oriole as part of a much more interesting checklist. See the checklist comments for some more details: https://ebird.org/checklist/S119048561
  17. The lifers keep rolling in! This Baltimore Oriole is my 14th for the current month: https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/485747341 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/485750381
  18. My field instincts told me Osprey, but the lighting is so bad I can't be certain. Taken this afternoon in Boynton Beach, Florida: Some of the images are brightened duplicates.
