    Lucky. Still haven't found or seen one yet.

    Trust me, I've had a heck of a time finding them. I've seen 3. One by accident, the other by watching where 50 people in Yellowstone NP were watching, and this one by knowing where it was and chasing.

    We should have a setup like iNaturalist where you can select a species to suggest. Comments can be added to the suggestion. Also a click on the species will redirect you to the species page. (which could be eBird, All About Birds, etc) If you agree with someone else's identification, you can hit "Agree" and it will show that.

    Since this is a forum I don't think it should work like iNaturalist. If it did, there wouldn't be much point for Whatbird and everyone would just post on iNat.


    I completely agree with the three or so confirmations. Sometimes one isn't enough and most of the time five is too many.

    had to look up eurasian collared doves as ive never seen/heard one and am very unfamiliar with them. they'd be pretty rare around these parts.

    heres the local bar charts: https://ebird.org/barchart?r=US-NC-025&yr=all&m=

    fwiw i hear the owls (or what i originally called owls) at: 07sec, 17sec, 37sec, 53sec.

    Ah, okay. They're pretty common here and I've heard their range is expanding northward.

  4. If I had to guess, fledgling Great Horned Owls learning how to hoot. I'm listening to the call around 0:55, which doesn't really have a dove quality and has the same rhythm as a GHOW. There are a few other calls that sound like Eurasian Collared-Doves to me.

    I found a bird after a heavy rain storm in South Carolina mountains, It still has down on it and don't know how to take care of it. It was under a Tulip tree about 100' tall and could only hop.

    Please look at the top of the Whatbird forums page for a topic on what to do if you find a baby bird.
