  1. Wait, now I think I am seeing 4 Merlins in the first photo!
  2. Agreed--western Virginia or West Virginia...or somewhere in the Catskills.
  3. Looks like 3 birds in the first photo. Cool shot by the way!
  4. What would a 4-foot Phoebe eat? I think we're looking at about a 3 degree angle down metal roofing. The corrugated metal is compressed. The bird isn't, which is good...there may be laws pertaining to bird compression.
  5. Over 8000!!! I'm just like you except on a smaller scale. And I'm certain I have a photo of a European Starling but I can't find it! But yes I'd love to find a better way of classifying photos. On occasion I have started on eBird which gives me a date for certain species which then narrows it down in Picasa. This works for my Greater White-fronted Goose, but not so much for more common species.
  6. I'd like to know, too. I'm not a network admin so this might end up over my head. Right now I am using Picasa, but the writing is on the wall. I would personally like a dedicated photo software program. One function that I liked in Picasa was the location pin on each photo (required having location set to "on" in your camera). Click on the pin and a map opens showing where the photo was taken. That function lo longer works, for me anyway. In the past, JASC had some great products, that if I'm not mistaken have all been taken over by another company and run deeply into the ground. Here is one possibility: For saving receipts to my PC, I am using a scanner and a program called FileCenter Professional Plus. There may be several versions of FileCenter that are less professional and not as plusy, but I like the version that I have. I think it could work for organizing photos. It does not alter anything about the files inside or outside of the program. Uninstall the program and your files/folders are still in place. I think it just puts a user-friendly dashboard (cabinet, drawers, folders) on the Windows File Manager. Of course if a person is adept at using Windows File Manager, the same thing could be accomplished.
  7. I think this is a Pine. On a Black-throated Green, even a young or drab bird, I would expect to see heavier streaking on the sides of the breast and on the flanks.
  8. How about a Sharp-shinned Hawk? http://www.birdweb.org/birdweb/bird/sharp-shinned_hawk
  9. With the yellow legs, the would be a Least Sandpiper. Sanderling and Western Sandiper would have black legs.
  10. Hard to say but I'm leaning toward Pine.
  11. I'm guessing the car is a Mini Cooper which is a favorite habitat for these Hawks. Welcome to Whatbird.
  12. It probably has to give it full right rudder peddle to go straight.
  13. Yeah, that could be it. And the left wing seems to be missing the primary feathers on both photos, so likely the same bird. Edit: Maybe it can't fly.
  14. Snowy with a little breeding plumage going on.
  15. Just curious, are both photos of the same bird? The tail on the second bird appears to be longer as do the legs.
  16. Okay, so it is a recently fledged Brown-headed Nuthatch. I had contacted Liam off forum. He sent me a great link on the young Brown-headed Nuthatch: http://cvwofirstlandingspk.blogspot.com/2008/05/when-is-brown-headed-nuthatch-not.html?m=1 Good stuff. Thanks!
  17. Seen in April, Burke County, GA. I put it on eBird as a Brown-headed. Recently two local birders contacted me thinking that it may be a Pygmy. Pygmy would be very rare for here but strange things do happen. Thanks for your input.
  18. You are correct--Red-tailed Hawk.
