  1. Pass on Z. ? Q: What's the difference between bird flu and swine flu? A: If you have bird flu, you need a tweetment. If you have swine flu, you need oink-ment.
  2. Ah, good point... I didn't look it up...just assumed Detroit Dam was in MI...that's why I wasn't sure about the range. ?

  4. Pass on the first one. I think the second one looks better for Black-throated Gray Warbler...the crown looks black and it appears to have some streaks on the sides...but I don't know if they are in your range area so wait for more input. ?
  5. Pass on Q. ? Q: What happens when ducks fly upside down? A: They quack up!

  8. I think we should still follow the basic guidelines...no back to back post. Only make allowances for the letters Q, X, and Z ...a joke or bird saying is fine with me. This change should help with keeping this thread moving a little faster. ?
  9. Hi Trevor L., glad to see you are still here. You are awesome...the rules shouldn't be totally changed only a little tweek on the letters Q and X and maybe Z ...thank you!! ?
  10. ...so meanwhile back at the ranch while we are waiting for @Nighthawk01 to respond ...here's a cute little guy... Doubleday's Hummingbird. ? Photo Credit: Wikipedia / Francesco Veronesi from Italy - Doubleday Hummingbird - Mexico_S4E8781
  11. Well, maybe we could fly that idea past @Nighthawk01 and see what he thinks. Sometimes we come to a standstill for days because everyone tries to avoid those three letters. :)
  12. I do like the idea of '' joke birds'' for those three letters though, like a funny photo or maybe a bird phrase/saying or even a corny bird joke. ? Birds of a feather flock together. Q: Why do birds fly south in the winter?A: Because it's too far to walk!
  13. Here's my dimes worth: I've been participating in this one from the start so in all due respect I suggest we ask the OP @Nighthawk01 to grant any changes since he did start this thread, however, some of us, myself included, have already broken or bent the rules I still think we should ask first. Or we could abandon this thread totally and start a new one...just sayin'! ?
  14. Here we are again...so guess what? Xantus's Hummingbird!! ?
  15. I can not give any help on the bird in question...I wouldn't give up I'd just lay it aside for now and visit it again later...you never know someone might have an answer for you. I personally do not add a bird to my ''life list'' unless I have a clear photo or at the very least one that can be positively identified. I know a lot of people add birds to their list that they've ''seen'' or even ''heard'' but I don't...I'm a quirky wittle bird! ?
  16. House Finch? , maybe. Wait and see if anyone else pops in with a suggestion. ?
  17. A Varied Thrush has a black breast band but it doesn't quite fit the rest of your description. What was the lighting like when you saw the bird? Any chance shadows were making the bird look browner than it really was? ?
