  1. I wanna call the first one a Red-shouldered, and then the second one is an accipiter for sure.
  2. From what I can see on my phone, it looks like it could be a sandpiper, and with that tail bobbing, I'd check out Spotted Sandpiper.
  3. Welcome to Whatbird! I hear a ton of Cardinals, a Blue Jay briefly, maybe a chickadee there at the end, and then the one I think you are referring to, which is a Carolina Wren.
  4. Last spring there was an article about a yellow cardinal at someone else's house in Alabama. Wonder if it's the same bird. . .
  5. But of course! Lark Sparrow still there, too. (Only saw one, but I'm sure the other one is there.)
  6. Seen today in Georgia. Think I got a terrible photo of a male in the same area, and wanted to confirm, since I'm putting it on ebird. Brewer's Female by midgetinvasion, on Flickr
  7. My Stokes lists Juvenile plumages are from Apr-Sept, so I'd imagine that is their breeding season, with July being smack in the middle of that range. Since he was the one that helped with the species restoration, he may not want to give exact specifics. But personally, I'd go when he's going. (Which reminds me, I still need to make time to try to get to the ones that are here.)
  8. Cool! We got to see that, too. It was my first time to experience totality. Such a wonderful experience. We're already discussing traveling to see the next one in 2024! Totality with Mercury and Airplane by midgetinvasion, on Flickr Edit-not sure if that is showing up for anyone else. I seem to be experiencing technical difficulties. . .
  9. I'm in the House Finch camp. The bill does look on the large side, but not large enough for a crossbill, and I have seen lots of instances of House Finches with overgrown bills roll through the forum through the years.
  10. Agree with Cedar Waxwing. There is a feather atlas. It's not exhaustive, but can be useful: https://www.fws.gov/lab/featheratlas/index.php
  11. Agree with Indigo Bunting, although it's a male, rather than a female. He's just not in breeding plumage.
  12. Indeed, check out the long forked tails.
  13. As HamRHead can attest, I bird with a light backpack that is purple. I usually don't do light treks, though. My pack has all my snacks and water, plastic bags, my phone, etc. Then I have my camera and binos. I also usually wear a hat. So, if you're ever birding in Georgia, and you see a chick with a ponytail, purple pack, and a light blue hat, come say hi! I have snacks! 😂 (Although I'm also super awkward and shy in person.)
  14. I can give this a definite, solid MAYBE. 😂
  15. We had siskins here in Georgia for the first time in years. Some people on my local Audubon group were complaining, because they had so many they were emptying the feeders too fast. Lol. The most I've had is 11, I think. They are still here as of today. Someone in Georgia last week had a repoll in their yard. Would have loved to have seen it!
  16. Skipping the plover, but the hawk, yes that's a RT. I think sometimes they sit in a way it just makes the feathers. . .poofy. Thinking some more, I think you're right on the plover, but don't hold me to it. The bill seems on the small side, and the eyebrow is nice and contrasty.
  17. Looks like an American Woodcock. They eat earthworms, which would explain the probing into the ground.
  18. I would highly doubt any small difference would make enough of an impact on the ratio of sugar and water to worry about. Addendum-I make 4 cups (with 1 c sugar) at a time, as that is the amount my favorite measuring cup holds.
  19. Very cool! Definitely a bucket list item!
  20. I also boil, because sugar doesn't dissolve for me otherwise. I boil with a kettle, though, because I'm not a heathen. 😂 (Then I measure out the boiled water and add the sugar and stir. Then toss what I don't use in the fridge for the week.)
  21. All it needs is music with a beat! 😂
  22. On my local Audubon group page, someone linked this. They made it sound like hummingbirds.net isn't doing a map on that site this year, and to look at this one instead. https://maps.journeynorth.org/map/?year=2019&map=hummingbird-ruby-throated-first&fbclid=IwAR0NHQ7BcV9twJFKXT997FD0pyxMCRsTwtFiGmgGxYrlL18vte9JvKEibro
