  1. 06 Nov 2020 Baldwin co AL I thought the eye line was faint, eye-arcs present, and he was definitely yellow on the underside, so I ID'd as OCWA over TEWA. Ayes? Nays?
  2. 31 Oct 2020 Baldwin co. AL Flitting through Live Oaks.
  3. 31 Oct 2020 Baldwin co. Alabama Unfortunately, no pics. About same size (?maybe slightly larger) as a Carolina chickadee, although tail seemed longer. Was intimidated by the Chickadees at safflower feeder and hung out in low shrubs, then flew to a separate feeder with black oil sunflower seeds and dined alone for a good while on the far side. He was somewhat distorted and obscured by the plastic of the feeder, but appeared warbler/vireo-like. No distinct wing bars, but I couldn't say there were none present. Could not see the bill well. What struck me most was both the upper- and undersides of bird appeared entirely yellow, although not vibrantly so. He did not appear to feed on any possible insects in the brush, just the feeder offering. ID? Differential?
  4. 18 Oct 2020 Feeding acrobatically (sometimes hanging upside down) on blooms of goldenrod--I assume getting insects? Not particularly shy or flighty. It did not have a distinct/real contrasty crown. I don't think the beak is hooked--I think that's a piece of something in photo 2?
  5. 03 Oct 2020 Baldwin co AL Feeding on fairly open ground in yard. The tail looked grey in comparison to the back, so ???
  6. 05 Oct 2019 Dauphin Island, Mobile Co. AL Does the darkish edge of the folded wing make it Sanderling?
  7. 22 Sept 2020 Baldwin co AL Bird perched in one particular dead sapling (second photo) over several days. Would fly out to grab insect and return to same perch. I think all 3 are of the same bird?
  8. 18 Sept 2020 Baldwin co., AL Hi, All. We found this poor little thing in our gutter when we were cleaning up after Hurricane Sally. ? I could see no difference in color between the back and tail feathers.
  9. Sept 25 2020 Baldwin co AL Hi, All. We are still without internet after Hurricane Sally, so I can't post a decent picture, but there is a what I ID'd as an Eastern Wood Peewee having out in a dead tree by our compost bins. Today he started acting strangely--rapidly flapping his wings and twitching his tail while perched. He seems distressed. I'm wondering if he got into fire ants. Or is this normal flycatcher behavior?
  10. 26 Aug 2020 Baldwin co Al DOR near expansive horse pastureland Crow/bluejay size black bird but with reddish tail.
  11. 25 Aug 2020 Baldwin co AL It is our state bird, but... A Northern Flicker visited one of my loose-seed feeders. I see them frequently in my yard & neighborhood, but never partaking of the free buffet. In an effort to deter the $@%! squirrels (who love that particular "squirrel-proof" feeder), I had changed out the seed from black oil sunflower seeds to Nutrasaff. As it is Summer, there is no shortage of natural food sources. Comments?
  12. 24 Aug 2020 Baldwin co. AL So today I followed the call I have been ascribing to a Common Ground Dove and flushed this little guy from a small pine. He flew a short distance into another pine entangled by vines, which did a great job of hiding him--this is where I had to photograph him. There was obvious reddish-brown flashing on the wing surfaces when he flew. He was tiny--the green leaves are live oak leaves. He looks more grey (particularly for the southeast?) than the CGDO descriptions I have read in various guides, but he was deep in shadow.
  13. 22 Aug 2020 Baldwin co AL This nest was about 3 ft off the ground in the forked branches of a Wax Myrtle (Morella cerifera) at the edge of a longleaf pine savannah near a mixed hardwood forest. The nest was comprised of spider webs, oak leaves, twigs, and grass blades.
  14. 18 Aug 2020 Baldwin co. AL Good morning, All. I found these portions of eggshell in 2 separate locations in my yard. One was lying under a tall hedgerow and the other was found on the other side of a tall fence on a tabletop on our back patio--I assume carried there by a larger animal. They are white, unspeckled, smooth, and appear to be from 2 different eggs. 1. Any ideas what species of bird? 2. Based on the shell-break pattern (pretty neatly linear), can it be determined if predator or hatchling opened the egg?
  15. 15 Aug 2020 Baldwin co AL pine flatwoods in process of restoration/recovery from invasive grasses & broadleafs. Awful pics, I know, but hoping someone can confirm. The bird was tiny & solitary. The spots on the wing coverts were more like smudgey lines and it did have a scaly look to the breast. We also had been hearing its call.

  18. Good morning, All. We had a hummingbird come into the yard this morning that did not act like our usual RTs. It seemed large, had a louder/buzzier sounding flight, and did not twitter at all, even when close to us. It seemed confused by the feeder--like he/she did not know what to do. It did nectar at several flowers. We thought it might just be a young RT, but it seemed larger. We occasionally have other species of hummers here. We could not see features/colors well enough to describe. 27 June 2020 Baldwin co. AL (coastal)
  19. Baldwin co., AL. 11 April 2020. Song is repeated throughout, at approximately 0, 2, 6, 10, 12, 15, 20, 24. Then the Laughing Gulls take over. 20200411_104839Unk - Copy.wav
  20. 18 June 2020. Baldwin co AL. There are several birds singing in this clip. I heard a Norther Mockingbird and an Eastern Bluebird, but I am interested in what the bird is that calls approximately every 10 seconds (aprroximately at seconds 7, 17, 26, 39). 20200618_100010 - Copy.wav
  21. Hi, All. In the past, I have seen all sorts of raptors (BE, Osprey, RTH...) perch in this lonesome pine in a large field. From my perspective, this bird seemed the size for a BE, did not appear to have the small head of a vulture or Osprey, and I saw a a pale flash when he flew off. Wings held predominantly flat, not dihedral, but seemed to have a the slightest upturn at tips. Can anyone ID from this blurry silhouette?
  22. I have no recollection of why I took this pic, but there are 2 birds on/near the ground. Looking at the pic now, I thought maybe Eastern Phoebe. Tallapoosa co., AL. Lake Martin. March 5 2017.
  23. On my mid-morning walk today (14 Apr 2020) I saw a group of 3 swallows hunting very close to a fallow field of stubble. They were too far away to ascertain color and I did not see obvious forked tails, but had only my eyes and no bins. I did not hear the chittering of Chimney Swifts, but, again, may have been too far to be within earshot. I was favoring Purple Martin at the time, but they are high hunters. Thoughts?
  24. Is this an Eastern Towhee? Sounded to me like "Drink Your Tea!" We never saw the bird. It was at greater than person height among some trees lining the drive into our suburban neighborhood. April 6, 2020 Alabama Baldwin co. Thanks 20200406_184316EasternTowheeed-0 - Copy.wav
