About Me


  1. 27 Jan 2022 Baldwin co. AL; bayside/riverside state park/campground
  2. Wow! My first birding excursion to a landfill today and I was completely overwhelmed with the sheer number of birds--both individuals and species. I will have to mentally prepare myself next time I go...and I will definitely take the truck rather than my Fusion. 😄 Also, the booth attendant was welcoming and knowledgeable about what birds had been seen recently. Next stop--the sewage lagoons.
  3. 17 Jan 2021 Baldwin co. AL; bayside public pier I thought ROTE at first glance, but he has orange legs and a bit of a dark tip, so then I though Common Tern (which would be a Lifer), but wasn't sure if COTE would have that much of a clean forehead & crown.

  7. 11 Nov 2021 Baldwin co. AL; over Mobile Bay close to bay beach (sand, mud flats) Under the American Avocet--could this be a Stilt Sandpiper? The other 3 appear to be yellowlegs, but those bills seem thin.

  15. 05 Oct 2021 Baldwin co. AL; bayside public park, heavily wooded, cypress swamp, pine palmetto, oak/magnolia 1. Flying like a swallow. Northern Rough-winged vs. just a EUST 2. maybe same bird as #1 3. Thought this was a White-breasted Nuthatch but he looks odd 4. Blackburnian vs. other warbler sp. 5. Best guess is Eastern Wood Peewee, but that tail is short.

  19. 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

  21. 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?
  22. 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
  23. 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.
