Sodusbird's Achievements



  1. 4-26-24 6:00 pm. Berrien County, Michigan
  2. Found under the deck on country homesite. July 10th. Porter County, IN. Does not have webbed feet. No sign of parents or nest.
  3. This little guy came up to my workshop windowsill yesterday and tapped on my glass. At first glance, I thought it was a Robin. When I realized it was an Orchard Oriole, I figured he was telling me it was time to put out the jelly, though April seems early for Southwestern Michigan? He came back today for the jelly.
  4. My daughter found this dead bird in her countryside yard in Porter County, Indiana this morning. I thought it might be a warbler of some kind. The red and yellow are on it's head. The body is about 2.5 inches in length.
  5. Regular Downy in third and fourth. Melanistic slate Down is in photos 1, 2, 4, 5, 6. No burns in the Sodus, MI area. If you'll look at photos 4 and 5 you can see that even the stripe under his eye is gray not white. I will continue to observe the Downy as long as it stays around. Does anyone know if it's a female or male?
  6. The Downy came back today. I had my Nikon with me. No sun today. and I took a picture of a regular Downy at the same time. No enhancement just cropping on some.
  7. The underbelly is all gray it is not a shadow. It's got to be a Downy hybrid. The all-charcoal gray underbelly and its' small size was different from the other two black and white Downys at the feeders.
  8. At first, I thought it was a very early juvenile. Couldn't find any woodpecker or gnatcatcher that looked close to this. Please excuse the photos, I only had and I touch and I have tremors. I did not retouch the photos other then to crop them.
