  1. Oops, I remembered in the next post. Knoxville, TN, June 11. Previously this group help me identify barred owl's (see other post from zygnite). Do different owls live in close proximity? Screech owl would explain why my daughter thought our woods were haunted! I just listened to the awesome calls. Haven't heard it myself yet. Thanks!
  2. Happy 4th of July. This hot day in Knoxville Tennessee was a busy day at the bird bath with two different raptors and several songbirds. I've never seen this one before. None of the Cooper's hawk photos I saw online matched the cap on the videos, but this seems a little bigger than the Marlin description.. There are also 18 minutes of video here (see "unknown hawk" in the folder): https://drive.google.com/open?id=13G6BtKOYxVzqEe2yPFWxiRJamm84PLAt If you a really bored you can help me identify the others marked unknown 😄 Thanks!
  3. Hi, Is there enough info in the photos to make an ID on this night owl? Also, here's the video link: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1tcBSTnBy06om9WtPxU_Oc2g4ZgaERS2k Thanks!
  4. At least two different hawks appeared in the bird bath recently. They seem considerably different. Different species? Different ages? Male/female? 30 sec videos stream from google drive LadyHawk: (light exposure, less color. The hawk's worm is compliments of the crow who left them earlier.) https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Hwc_X7w8JvjciQGE4AjtLRhSCQikdc9s https://drive.google.com/open?id=11hTCD3N46pDKIy-vR0jdBQwaGklwQxB5 ChickenHawk: (2nd vid, at 25 seconds of 29, if you can stop it shows a brownish-red patch on the shoulder) https://drive.google.com/open?id=1XKpM8e3YaiCXpWlyEhr4ekFtUrWDk62i https://drive.google.com/open?id=1wbhX_PMAiOttRKYDengjDTwuQNgNaExH are they both Red Shouldered Hawks or something else...? Thank you
  5. No crane needed, but 2 strong helpers are required for the pedestal. I have the molds so more can be made. More unidentified visitors to the same bath... first one I believe to be a young red shoulder hawk. I had to lighten the photo considerably, true colors are hard to see. It isn't just the raptors that like this bath, I get everything from blue-jays to this little yellow fellow. Your thoughts?
  6. The forest animals love the concrete birdbath my brother made, which is pretty large, about 2.5 feet across for scale on the bird. I took this with a trail cam in PIR mode so there isn't any color information. Is there enough info in the photo to properly identify the owl? Owl's address is Knox County in eastern Tennessee. I thought it was a Barred Owl until I heard the call. We can hear owls around the house 1-3 hours after dark and it's more of classic hoo-ing, back and forth across the woods. Those may not be the same as the owl caught here, about 400 yards away. Do multiple species of owls live in close proximity? Your thoughts are appreciated!
