  1. How are you able to post >10 photos on a checklist?
  2. I think this is the only record of Barn x Cliff Swallow in Michigan
  3. Somewhat of a lull now. Just a week ago they were driving ATV’s on the lakes, a few days ago they were completely open water. Ducks just haven’t found them yet.
  4. I’m running out of birds to find in my county, so I am shooting to find a new species. 😉
  5. @nemesis256 I had to go back and look at my eBird export to find the checklist comments. I had a White-crowned Sparrow that ended its song with a very definitive “chip-burrr”. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/315677101
  6. 1. Holding out hope Evening Grosbeak pass through here on way back up north 2. Connecticut Warbler 3. Louisiana Thrush 4. Least Bittern 5. Red-throated Loon is my unicorn
  7. Not a great shot, but apparently an extremely rare shot of a female Rusty Blackbird in Spring with dark eyes. Yet to see any mention of this outside of HY females having them for a brief time in the fall.
  8. There have been Brewer's sighted from a month ago, and a week ago only 35 miles from this spot. I'll give the male may not be definitive enough, but the female has dark eyes. I thought that was a deal sealer for BRBL females to distinguish with RUBL. I know the BRBL female can occasionally have pale eyes, but didn't think the reverse worked for RUBL.
  9. Now is the time in this part of Michigan you have to try to play "Where's the Brewer's?" in all the large mixed blackbird flocks. Pretty sure this is a male and a female. The male just has a different GISS than the Rusties and I've never seen one with that green sheen to it. Not 100% sure the flight shot is the same bird. The female has the dark eye, although that supercilium seems awfully strong.
  10. Lesser Yellowlegs can tuck their legs, and give an initial impression of White-rumpled Sandpiper.
  11. I have a whole animated gif of the "battle" here.
  12. When you think two male Mallards are fighting over territory, it may be something else they are fighting over. You just couldn’t see her at first.
  13. Species 2021/All-time World - 18,603/29,260 U.S. - 9,642/13,968 Michigan - 87/396 County - 1/1
  14. I thought initially I found my first Turkey Vulture of the year, but quickly realize it wasn't rocking. Best views I've ever gotten.
  15. BirdsEye NA you can get down to as small as 1 mile diameter for birds sighted locally and it will show where on map they were reported. Shows historical, recent (adjustable timeframe) and needs, if you have it tied to eBird account. You can even click on the location dot and it will show a list of birds seen at that location.
  16. If I’m understanding the first one you can put an “x” in the species, then tap it to change to 1.
  17. iBird Favorites list eBird i also have an Excel sheet that I update with exports from eBird.
  18. County lifer - Barrow's Goldeneye.
  19. ...and then some!! Thank you. 😃
