  1. Edited to add: actually the the Cornell site says unmated birds will sometimes share the chimney with the breeding pair and will help them out. So cool!
  2. They are welcome to live here. I feel honored that they chose my chimney! Once the babies fledge, will more join them? I read that each breeding pair needs its own chimney.
  3. Thank you. I can confirm that they are Chimney Swifts. I’m not sure how they got in, since there is a grate, but I suppose where there’s a will, there’s a way.
  4. Trying the video again. https://youtube.com/shorts/OPpJpeYU3f0?feature=share
  5. Thank you. I have no problems with them living there for now. I made sure the flue was closed so they can’t get into the house. My cat would like that too much.
  6. Oh, dear. I wonder why you can’t hear it. I uploaded it to YouTube: Can you hear it there? Thanks for your reply. I’ll try what you suggested.
  7. Roanoke, Virginia, today. These birds have been in my chimney for a couple of weeks at least. They chatter on and off, usually later in the day. Is it possible to identify them by sound? IMG_9592.MOV
  8. That’s what I was leaning towards, but he looks big in the video, and he was alone. I usually see them in groups running in the surf. That threw me off! Thank you for the speedy reply!!
  9. This little guy came within a foot of my sister at the beach today (Avon, NC — Outer Banks). Can someone identify him? He was alone and just cruising up the beach. IMG_7724.MOV
  10. Well, I was wrong about it being a life, but it’s was good to see after 5 years!
  11. Wow! If that’s the case, it’s a lifer for me, I think. Haven’t birded in quite a while and just managed to see it at my parents’ place. Will go check my list! Thank you for the ID.
  12. IMG_7683.MOV I saw this bird this past Sunday in Bedford County, Virginia. Is it an Eastern Phoebe? For some reason I can’t use the insert image from URL took to work for the video. Or did it? In any case, here’s a link to a Google folder: https://photos.app.goo.gl/wFYJM3fqKtzB43b96
  13. Thanks for all the answers. My sister confirmed that they are House Finches. Not sure where her hubby got Eastern Bluebird fromǃ
  14. That's what I was thinking, but her husband says they are Eastern Bluebirds. Don't they use nest boxes?
  15. My sister sent this picture of baby birds in the wreath on her front door. Can anyone identify them? Taken today in Roanoke, Virginia. Thanks!
  16. Is this a Laughing Gull? Taken in Titusville, FL, February 10, 2018.
  17. Taken 2/7/2018 in Lakeland, FL at Circle B Bar Reserve.
  18. Is this a Palm Warbler? Taken 2/7/18 near Lakeland, FL at Circle B Bar Reserve.
