  1. 06 Jun 2021 Baldwin co. AL; Longleaf Pine savannah surrounded by wet oak/hickory woods I couldn't visualize him well with my bins, but he looks like a blurry BLGR. He was singing loudly from pretty high in a tree, but I did not record his song and I couldn't describe it from memory.
  2. 02 Jun 2021 Dale co. AL; semi-rural yard adjacent to steep bluff leading to heavily wooded creek bottom. I didn't see rustiness on the wings but he appears to have a small rusty patch on the head and yellow wash on the underside, at least the flanks. I can't decide whether the white stripes on the wing count as wingbars.
  3. 02 June 2021 Dale co. AL; semi-rural area; yard on edge of bluff/deep woods, with nearby creek
  4. May 2020; Baldwin co. AL unk_20200503_084634 - Copyed.wav
  5. Apologies if this is a repeat post. I couldn't find it in my list of attachments. BirdNET's best estimate was Black-crowned Tchagra. I disagree. lol. The singer, whoever he may be, is quite melodious. 20200821_111830 - Copyed.wav
  6. 25 Feb 2021 Baldwin co. AL; quiet, sheltered inlet of small saltwater bay. The low, short, ascending call (not the Laughing Gulls). 20210225_090510 - Copyed.wav
  7. 27 May 2021 Baldwin co. AL; bayside marsh & thickets with marture pine, cypress, palmetto I wonder if it is a Downy/Hairy whose upper stripe is catching the light.
  8. 06 Mar 2021 Dale co AL Six turkeys today, mostly jakes and maybe one hen, but at least one gobbler who was fanning and dragging his wings in display. For ebird purposes, is this considered "Display", "Territorial Defense" or nothing as far as Breeding Codes?
  9. 18 May 2021 Baldwin co. AL; Brackish/saltwater marsh and surrounds 1. Immature male Painted Bunting. It was singing its heart out. Pic & 2 audio files. But should we have those here at this time? 20210518_085308 - Copy_ed.wav 20210518_085148 - Copy_ed.wav 2. Purple Gallinule (Lifer) 3. Cliff Swallow (Lifer)
  10. 14 May 2021 Baldwin co. AL; brackish marsh/ wooded swamp. I just want to be sure I'm not mis-IDing. I usually hear the Red-eyeds call before I see them, but these 2 were completely silent the entire time I was there. Also, Red-eyeds not commonly seen at this particular hotspot.
  11. 14 May 2021 Baldwin co. AL; mouth of Mobile-Tensaw delta; brackish swamp/marsh This sounds a lot like an Eastern Meadowlark, but the bird was calling from a thicket that was in standing water in the middle of a swampy landmass in the middle of a large body of water that can only be reached by the elevated boardwalk or by boat. No grasslands close by. Additionally, what appeared to be a warbler flushed from the thicket and the song stopped. I could not ID the flying warbler, but saw mostly/all yellow underparts and a much darker (?brown) head. Hooded Warbler was my best guess in the field, but I did/do not feel confident enough in that ID to submit it as such. So, I either had 2 different birds or they are one and the same. 20210514_090327 - Copy_ed.wav
  12. 07 May 2021 Baldwin co. AL; coastal historical park with varying habitat--pine palmetto, flooded grassland, marsh, crumbling buildings, beach 1. Common Nighthawk--Previously, I've only gotten these guys when they are zipping highly aloft. 2. Female Summer Tanager--I wasn't sure about all the rustiness in the tail 3. All Greater Yellowlegs 4. Red-winged Blackbird with leucism of tail 5. I thought this was a Brown-headed Cowbird in the field, but now I'm wondering if this is some sort of raptor. Those feet are huge. He is banded. 6. This fellow was an incidental, so not the best capture. He looks to have long, greyish legs. I can't tell size or whether he has a sandpiper or plover beak, or the pattern on his back. Willet vs. Black-bellied Plover vs. something else entirely. 7. Is this a Western Sandpiper with the Semipalmated Plover?
  13. 08 May 2021; Baldwin co. AL; gulf beach 1. Sanderling (S), SEPA (SP) & ? 2. Western (W) & Sanderling (Sn) 3. L to R: Western & SESA
  14. 08 May 2021 Baldwin co. AL; gulf beach 1. Semipalmated Sandpipers (SP) & Least Sandpipers (L) & unknown 2. Least (3) 4. Least (4) 5. Least 6. I think all Least (6)
  15. 08 May 2021 Baldwin co. AL; Bayside historical park; Heavily wooded with Live Oak, hickory, etc. Heavy brambles and thicket
  16. 08 May 2021 Baldwin co. AL; gulf beach 1. Sanderling--Winter plumage 2. Sanderling--coming into breeding plumage 3 & 4. L to R, both photos: SESA, Sanderling
  17. 07 May 2021 Baldwin co. AL; gulf beach 1. Whimbrel-for confirmation 2. Gull-billed Tern--I don't see the yellow tip and bill looks too thick for Sandwich
  18. 08 May 2021 Baldwin co. AL; I think this is a Herring Gull, but his bill looks really bulbous. There were 2 of them.
  19. 08 May 2021 Baldwin co. AL; Sea-/gulfside park with large areas of open grassland, surrounding woods, crumbling buildings 1. Female Blue Grosbeak 2. Immature European Starlings 3. Which blackbird sp? 4. Female Bobolink 5. Female Bobolink
  20. 08 May 2021 Baldwin co. AL; Ft. Morgan peninsula. 2 different individuals from 2 separate sites. I thought they might both be the same species: Swainson's or Bicknell's? 1. Heavily wooded trail through historic site with Live Oak, abundant brambles & thickets. 2. Walking trail through NWR; Live Oak, pine palmetto, wetlands, beach
  21. 08 May 2021 Baldwin co. AL; seaside; grassy meadows flooded with fresh water from recent rains 1. Black Bellied Plovers--bill, shape, & size look good, but wondered if the back color was too solid? 2.. Least Sandpiper 3. Solitary Sandpiper 4. Spotted Sandpiper(s) 5. Upland Sandpiper 6. Western Sandpipers 7. ?
  22. 08 May 2021; Baldwin co. AL; Bayside public park; heavily wooded; cypress, palmetto, pine, wetlands; taken at/near dawn 1. Favor Pine Warbler 2. Unknown (and maybe unidentifiable) sleeping bird who is as much a morning person as my spouse. I see a single wing stripe, wings short relative to the notched tail and maybe a warbler-esque bill.
  23. ?Royal Tern--wing pattern & tail rule out Caspian
  24. 25 Apr 2021 Mobile co. AL; public lake & park 1. Orchard Orioles--male in lower part of frame and immature/females above; what I ID'd as female Orchards were 4 mustard-yellow birds flying in a quarrelsome group. I though either female oriole or tanager sp. The four fought while flying and when perched. I could not get a good look or shot of them due to their frenetic movements. Is such behavior consistent with female Orchards or does something else come to mind? 2. female/immature Orchard Oriole 3. Barn Swallow 4. Eastern Kingbird 5. ?Common Grackle--but his tail looks short 6. Brown-headed Cowbird vs. Shiny Cowbird vs. other blackbird sp. 7. Least Tern 8. Which Tern--it was a small tern, but bill looked too orange for Least, cap didn't look quite right for Forster's
