  2. 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
  3. 08 May 2021 Baldwin co. AL; I think this is a Herring Gull, but his bill looks really bulbous. There were 2 of them.
  4. 08 May 2021 Baldwin co. AL; seaside; grassy meadows flooded with fresh water from recent rains 1.

  5. 08 May 2021 Baldwin co. AL; Bayside historical park; Heavily wooded with Live Oak, hickory, etc. Heavy brambles and thicket
  6. 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
  7. 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.

  12. 27 Mar 2021 Baldwin co. AL; suburban yard; mid canopy
  13. 26 mar 2021 Baldwin co. AL; Mobile Bay Large flock of white egrets. From my far vantage point, I could not ascertain leg nor bill color & I am not experienced enough to estimate size at the distance I viewed them. Any way to discern which species these birds are (e.g. flocking behavior/flight pattern)? I did not crop so as to preserve resolution
  14. 26 Mar 2021, Baldwin co. AL; bayside cypress/pine palmetto swamp; he was lurking in the undergrowth near water's edge
  15. 18 Mar 2021 Baldwin co. AL; saltwater/brackish marsh & bay 1. Are these just Mallards or something more exciting? 2. Rough-winged Swallow vs. female Purple Martin Small group feeding quite low over marsh grass; individuals looked dark in coloration from afar.
  16. 17 Mar 2021 Baldwin co.AL; Mobile Bay ?Willets
  17. Having read about the huge decline of the various cuckoo species, we hoped to see some Eastern Tent Caterpillars set up shop in some Prunus spp. scattered about our rural property. Lo and behold, when we checked the site today, there were several nests with active larvae. Any of the cuckoos would be Lifers, so ✌️ Feeding the birds. ❤️ Anybody else have experience with this? And to think of how many nests I have destroyed in my lifetime, not knowing...
  18. Dec 2020 Baldwin co. AL; saltwater/brackish marsh 20201210_111539 - Copy - Copy_normalized.wav
  19. 10 Mar 2021 Baldwin co. AL; Mobile Bay and saltwater/brackish marsh The 3 ducks were together in a group 1 & 2. Lesser Scaup-- 2. 3. ?Female Redhead 4. ?Northern Harrier--the head shape looked more like an Osprey, but the color distribution on head & body looked (to me) more like Harrier. 5. ??--in tree with female Red-wing Blackbirds, but not associating with them. They were all looking at this bird. It never turned its head.
  20. 03 Mar 2021 Baldwin co. AL; Mobile Bay 1. Purple Martin with nesting material--I can recognize Purple Martins up-close, but I am not comfortable IDing solely by silhouette. 2. ??Dowitcher sp. 3. ?Black-bellied Plover vs sandpiper sp.--I usually don't find the general distinction of plover vs. sandpiper difficult, but with the Black-bellied, I do indeed, particularly when viewing long-distance. Pointers? 3. ?Lesser Yellowlegs

  22. 25 Feb 2021 Baldwin co. AL; bayside public boat launch at point where small bay opens into Mobile Bay; rough water; mostly large gravel parking lot and small grove of pines; fairly inhospitable place Just caught a glimpse of this bird. About the size of a crow or larger woodpecker. I thought it was a woodpecker at first, before I saw the color combination. Feature that stood out: 1. Rufous on the chest or belly with lighter coloring under tail 2. Flashed white wing bars--I think on the upper side, rather than underside as I drew it 3. Either a shallow forked or notched tail 4. Flashed rufous or red on the upper surface of the wings near their insertion on the should girdle 5. Bill discernable 6. Flew in straight bursts like it was shot from a cannon, and rolled a bit so I could see both upper & lower aspects Female Belted Kingfisher is the best I could come up with, but the bird did not act like a Belted Kingfisher--no chittering, and it was really high in the pines--and I think I saw rufous or red on the shoulders in addition to the underside. There was no discernable barring or streaking on the underside, so I don't think it was a female Red-winged Blackbird. Rudimentary drawing using my granddaughter's color crayons:
  23. 25 Feb 2021 Baldwin co. AL Good morning, All. I am trying to do better about putting in Breeding Codes, etc., when I am able to discern such. This morning, I found 8 Hooded Mergansers. Two are definitely adult males, and the others either females or a mix of immature males & females. Is it possible to sex these remaining 6 birds? If so, how?
  24. 24 Feb 2021 Baldwin co. AL; delta/river/bay/marsh 1. ?Rusty vs. Brewer's Blackbird or Common Grackle--salient features to differentiate the 3 species? 2. ?Orange-crowned Warbler--he looked a little different than ones I've been seeing; lots more yellow underneath and back not as dull 3. ?Bonaparte's Gull (with 2 Laughing Gulls)--such a big head for such a tiny fellow
  25. 21 Feb 2021 Baldwin co. AL; freshwater pond There were a couple of different-looking ducks with a flock of about 40 Northern Pintails. 1. ?Green Winged Teals (? 2 male and 1 female) 2. L to R: Northern Pintail (for comparison), ?female Green-Winged Teal, ?no clue
