  6. 22 Sept 2021 Baldwin co. AL; suburban yard I recognize the usual Carolina Chickadee call toward the end of the recording; the one I don't recognize is the high-pitched call, heard mostly in the first 24 seconds.

  19. 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
  20. 07 May 2021 Baldwin co. AL; coastal historical park with varying habitat--pine palmetto, flooded grassland, marsh, crumbling buildings, beach 1.

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?

  24. 16 Mar 2021 Baldwin co. AL I looked out the window to see a Carolina Wren flattened to an incredibly small lump on one of the feeders and in a strange posture. He was looking at me with a weird, rather imploring expression (realizing I'm anthropomorphizing). Thinking he might have been injured, or infected with the dreaded Salmonella, I got up to go see about him, but before I opened the door, a Cooper's Hawk swooped down and attempted to pluck a bird from another feeder. The wren remained as motionless as when I first saw him until a good 7 or 8 minutes had passed, then another Carolina Wren began to sing loudly from a very open & visible perch--I suppose giving the "all-clear". At this apparent signal, the wren at the feeder began to feed and the second "lookout" wren joined in at an adjacent feeder. It was fascinating to watch.
  25. 15 Mar 2021 Baldwin co. AL fenced, suburban yard fully enclosed by privacy fence with abundant native evergreen shrubbery & trees. Small bird, only got a quick peak, remained partially obscured by vegetation. Color Pattern: 2 well-defined, though thin, white wing bars Quite a bit of yellow on head/face contrasting with pale/whitish throat Possibly a yellow eyering &/or spectacles Light yellow on flanks contrasting with lighter belly. No streaks. No discernable pattern on back, appeared uniform in color and did not flash any color when he flew I did not see him from the underside Behavior: Quickly flitting up & down, back & forth from branch to branch of a crabapple whose leaf and flower buds are emerging. He did not exhibit "fly-catching" behavior nor upside down/dangling Chickadee-like behavior. When he saw me, he immediately darted into thick shrubbery. This was not an American Goldfinch nor a Yellow-rumped Warbler. I thought White-eyed Vireo, but wasn't sure if they would come to a backyard or feed at that height (approx. 6-8 ft.). Previously, I have seen or head them only in more thickly wooded areas. Are there other possibilities I should consider?
