  1. Dec 26 & 27, 2020 Baldwin co. AL; Gulf of Mexico Taken over 2 subsequent days in same general location, so may be the same individual. I originally listed as Common Loon, but now wondering if that throat delineation is too clean and it is a Pacific. 12/26 12/27
  2. All taken in Feb. in Mobile or Baldwin co. AL in public parks with lakes or brackish marsh 1. ?Swamp Sparrow 2. ?Song Sparrow 3. ?Song Sparrow 4. ???. Why the short tail--molting? 5. ?All Chipping. This was a group of a dozen or so that was feeding on bread 😞 left by some well-intended persons. 6. ?Song Sparrow
  3. 01 Mar 2021 Baldwin co. AL Is it more likely this bill deformity is due to trauma or infection? Either way, rehabbers won't take the bird because it is a species non-native to the area. What to do?
  4. 15 Feb 2021 Baldwin co. AL; Boardwalk along a weedy creekside corridor wedged between an interstate/4-lane highway exchange, hotels, and a saltwater bay. The creek is separated from the boardwalk by tall, vine-covered chain-link fence on either side. This bird was singing high from a tree top on the far side of the creek near a hotel parking lot. There appears to be 2 sustained notes followed by 3 more rapid, higher notes. 20210215_131035ed - Copy.wav
  5. 10 Feb 2021 Baldwin co. AL; Mobile Bay American White Pelican vs. Great Egret These birds were far offshore on a spit of sandbar. They never did raise their heads. Before I could go back and get my spotting scope, it started pouring rain, so these are the best shots I have. I thought their overall shape, posture, & fact they were in a pretty tight social group was more on the side of American White Pelican, but idk. There is a Ring-billed Gull on the far left for reference.
  6. 29 Jan 2021 Baldwin co. AL Longleaf/loblolly pines adjacent to mixed deciduous woods, spring-fed wetlands, and river Literally the south end of a north-bound bird. I just caught him before he disappeared behind the tree tops.
  7. 21 Jan 2021 Baldwin co. AL Bay/Estuarine environment
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. 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?
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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)
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. Happy Sunday, All. I can ID a Northern Flicker when I can see features, but, due to distance, could only make out the outline here. 15 May 2017
  17. 18 May 2020 Baldwin co AL Favor Immature b/c of streakiness on bib.
  18. 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?
  19. Good afternoon, All. I am hoping someone can ID the two different bird species in this less-than-optimal recording. April 11, 2020. Baldwin co. AL Coastal 1. Fish vs American Crow calling througout. I was favoring Fish b/c it was a more nasal than coarse caw. I did not ask him if he was an American Crow, however, so did not hear the definitive negative reply. 🙂 2. ????? --3 rapid clear whistles at around 7, 10, 14, 16, 23, 31... Thank you. 20200411_161327 - Copy.wav
  20. 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
  21. 4 Mar 2020 There were 3 hawks flying together. I believe (but don't know for sure) they all were the same species. I think this is a Buteo, but...? Features I think I see--please correct if I am incorrectly categorizing: Fairly broad, but not particularly long, wings for body length with "fingers" Wings slightly pointed Fairly long tail for Buteo (if it is a Buteo) Dark wing linings, paler, barred flight feathers Barred tail Little to no secondary bulge--I have trouble seeing & grading this feature on any given bird
