  1. 09 Dec 2020 Baldwin co. AL; bayside ?Franklin's Gull 2nd from L. The eye arcs seem thick for Laughing Gull 2. ?Gull-Billed Terns vs. Sandwich Tern vs. Are they even terns??? They look fat for terns, short for gulls. Tails not right for gulls. Wings really pointy like terns. I'm lost on this one. 3. ?Laughing Gull (the relatively tiny one in the water toward the lower L corner)--but he seems so small
  2. 09 Dec 2020 Baldwin co., AL; public pier & park 1. ?Lesser Scaup (head peaked enough to call?) 2. ?Ring-Billed Gull--bill doesn't look heavy but the leg color seems odd 3. Royal Tern
  3. Definitely bad for the birds. Unfortunately, although Alabama is somewhat late to the party, the result will be the same as that playing out over the world. I remember my great grandfather talking about the Lord God Bird (Ivory Billed WP) and how common it was to see in his youth. https://www.latimes.com/opinion/story/2020-11-29/mobile-river-biodiversity-extinctions-alabama?fbclid=IwAR1guKU4NWAURjKExshsdsAXpFq5O8pY_CdtOXY594OTAJ-7VZS0N7lTZGw
  4. 3 May 2020 Baldwin co AL; suburban yard One bird calls at 1, 5, 9, 15... Second species (I think multiple individuals, though) quick, high whistles (?cardinals) I recognize the Laughing Gulls calling from overhead. They are on their way from our local dump to the one in Pensacola. I could set my watch by them. ? 20200503_084634 - Copy.wav
  5. I hope this one is of better quality. On my original recording, I can hear a clear, sweet, simple whistle with an "upswing" & repeated every 3-4 seconds. Please advise if audio quality is again too poor to interpret. 27 Oct 2020 Baldwin co. AL 20201027_104304 - Copyed.wav

  7. 13 Feb 2020 Mobile, Mobile co., AL; public lake & park
  8. 05 Oct 2019 Dauphin Island, Mobile co. AL Just looking at the terns in the foreground (not the blurry ones in the back) in amongst Black Skimmers & Laughing Gulls. From L to R: Caspian Tern X 1 (bill tip somewhat obscured by gull's head) Royal Tern X 5 Caspian Tern X 2 Royal Tern X 4
  9. 02 Dec 2020 Baldwin co. AL Public Park & pier His head looks rounded to me, but never having personally ID'd either scaup species, I don't have a good point of reference, other than field guide photos.
  10. 01 Dec 2020 Baldwin co. AL; Mobile Bay; public pier & park On walk with daughter, so no camera today. Saw what I thought at first were 3 red & white crab trap floats, but ultimately decided they were birds. They were fairly close to shore, but not close enough to see any detail. My daughter (who is 30 years younger and with better eyesight) confirmed they were birds. With my bins, I could see red heads and light bodies, but couldn't see a lot of detail. They weren't very active, just floating. The birds looked rather compacted A-P. I ID'd as Redhead. Cornell site also suggests Canvasback, but the birds I saw didn't have that stretched-out head look that the pics have. Thoughts? Anything else I should consider? Camera & spotting scope are taking a trip to the pier tomorrow.
  11. 30 Nov 2020 Baldwin co. AL Actively foraging in a mini thicket (<1' high) of Georgia asters.
  12. 30 Nov 2020 Baldwin co AL Also--we had our first cold front come through last night with a light freeze/frost predicted tonight. There were 4 individual woodpeckers (at least 3 different species--Red Bellied, Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker, Downy/Hairy, and this guy) working the same Live Oak tree simultaneously in close proximity to one another. Although I've seen each species before, I don't recall it being a come-one-come-all dining experience. Could it be weather-related or just a coincidence?
  13. 27 Nov 2020 Mobile, Mobile co. AL Public park & lake His bill shape is interesting.
  14. Spring 2018 I have no idea what this is. Is the white behind the eye real or an artifact?
  15. 28 April 2018 Baldwin co. AL I thought I could tell them apart, but I'm not certain that I can, if Mrs. is without Mister. Tips?
  16. 23 Nov Baldwin co. AL Apologies for quality. It's private land & I have to photograph from the road. Mixed habitats Marshy seasonal freshwater pond 1. ?Palm Warbler 2. ? (L) & ?Palm Warbler (R--behind vegetation) 3. ?Waterthush sp. (L) & ? (R) Recently harvested/plowed peanut field 4. Red-Tailed Hawk 5. ?Savannah Sparrow 6. ?The Grey Ghost (male Northern Harrier) 7. Red-Tailed Hawk (Krider's) vs. ??? Fish pond 8. & 9. ?Forster's Tern 10. &11. ?Blue-Gray Gnatcatcher--I don't see white outer tail feathers
  17. 24 Apr 2017 Baldwin co AL seasonal freshwater pond Hi, All. Can someone ID these birds? Can you share how to go about it when one is observing them from the front with no size reference and the birds are in non-breeding plumage? Thanks in advance!
  18. 14 Nov 2020 Baldwin co al Old Field pine near wetlands No pic. Long tail. Pointed wings. Favor accipiter/falcon. Had striking white tail viewed from underneath. Wasn't a harrier. Took off from thick growth of pines/understorey thicket.
  19. 13 Nov 2020 Baldwin co. AL Gleaning tree leaves, mid-storey
  20. 12 Nov 2020 Baldwin co AL From a great distance, I saw a large raptor fly into the midstorey of a fairly leafless tree. The bird's coloring was a mix of splotchy brown & light. My first thought was immature Bald Eagle, but it could easily have been a Buteo sp., as It was hard to ascertain its size. He was definitely a large & sturdy fellow. The thing that struck me most was that the tree top was loaded with EUST & they did not even budge. So I'm fairly certain it was not Mr. (or Mrs.) Cooper.
  21. 12 Nov 2020 Baldwin co AL. Large patch with cotton field, recently dug peanut field (peanuts still on ground), large manmade pond, a Grady pond, live oaks. Hi, All. I still have trouble birding by silhouette when I can't see colors and features.. As usual, apologies for the poor pic quality--I see many birds on my morning work-out walks, but only take my phone with me. Since they are such poor quality, I am not cropping. 1. ?American White Pelican (middle, bottom of pic) ; slow, graceful flight, close formation, black on wings. I don't think they were Wood Storks, but... 2 & 3. ?Double Crested Cormorant 4 & 5. ?Cooper's Hawk
