  1. No problem! Haha, House Sparrows can be confusing.
  2. Yeah, I feel the same way... you can get to some content using the Wayback Machine: https://archive.org/web/
  3. The black I'm seeing is mainly in the face, where the feathers are really wet and ruffled out, so the black is actually just shadows in between clumped feathers.
  4. I'm not seeing Longspur due to overall shape... like how far the wingbars are from each other in a Longspur, and with a ruddy patch in between. Also, Laplands have black legs. In that last photo you can see the rufous cap.
  5. Yep, that's a Least! You might want to put this on eBird. Not sure how far they go up the coast but people might be interested in seeing it.
  6. That's definitely a Neotropic in front. I'm just looking at overall length and lack of white line around the gape to say that the back one is a Double-crested (not double-breasted ).
  7. Yes, nice shots! I'll take a stab at them. I believe the first is correct. Second... after looking over the two I decided that the streaky front, dark auriculars, and lack of very prominent yellow in the front points towards Saltmarsh, but I have literally no experience with either species. And the last is a weirdo Chipping I think. EDIT: Sniped!
  8. Based on a recent post by @corgi, I'm starting this thread for people who simply want to share a photo and a story, and not be ignored, as what happens often to new posts. I tend to find myself not knowing where to post something simply because there isn't a thread for it, so here we are! Share a story, with a photo or video if you have one! I'll start: So here's something pretty cool... my family owns a cabin up in central Idaho, and there lives a ton of foxes! Last winter we had at least 8 on the lot at one time, including silver red foxes and normal red foxes. Photos of them: They can be super goofy at times too! Well, it was only a matter of time... and a strong mom decided to make a den on the line between us and our neighbor's. She successfully raised 4 pups one year, and 2 the next! She even had an issue with her eye at one time, we still don't know if she's blind in that eye or not... Looking bad: Recovered: The pups are the perfect puppy-kitten cross for those who can't decide which they like better!
  9. Wow! I'm 17 and I also prefer comments. Often times, though, people don't post on new topics in the Share Photos section, I think simply because it's a new topic that wasn't posted in a particular "thread". If you go to all of the top threads like Share your best photo, or LOL, etc., people commonly quote and reply to things they like. But, truthfully, I didn't reply to your post because I'm not on here too much and I tend to stick to bird identification. I wish people would have replied, but the forum suffered a severe crash a couple years back and it hasn't been quite the same since. I can assure you, though, this isn't your average "social media". Having been here since 2015, it's a wonderful, homey place where people can have great conversations. Hope you don't give up on Whatbird!
  10. Yeah actually, I jumped to female but I think that's correct.
