  1. 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.

  3. 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!
  4. 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.
  5. 13 Nov 2020 Baldwin co. AL Gleaning tree leaves, mid-storey
  6. 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, bu
  7. 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?
  8. 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 u
  9. 31 Oct 2020 Baldwin co. AL Flitting through Live Oaks.
  10. 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?
  11. 03 Oct 2020 Baldwin co AL Feeding on fairly open ground in yard. The tail looked grey in comparison to the back, so ???
  12. 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?
  13. 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?
  14. 26 Aug 2020 Baldwin co Al DOR near expansive horse pastureland Crow/bluejay size black bird but with reddish tail.
  15. 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.
  16. 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?
  17. 19 Apr 2017 Baldwin (coastal) co AL. Small seasonal/Grady pond in field.
  18. Hi, All. Going through old pics. Learning silhouettes. 24 May 2016 Southwest Alabama (Baldwin/Escambia counties).
