  1. 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?
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 23 Feb 2021 Baldwin co. AL; delta/bay/river & mixed piney/cypress/hardwoods; public access walking paths, interpretive center & other habited buildings 1. ?Red-tailed Hawk 2. ?Swamp Sparrow--deep in shade, hard for me to appreciate color 3. ?Savannah Sparrow--apologies for the blurred image 4. ?Song Sparrow 5. ?Lincoln's Sparrow 6. I could ID the Killdeer (bird in center of lower image) in the field. Can the smaller shorebirds be identified any further than "peep sp."?
  5. 20 Feb 2021 Mobile co. AL Public lake & park 1. ?Killdeer 2. ?Gadwall (male & female) Small longleaf forest adjacent to botanical gardens & city golf course 1. Winter Wren vs. House Wren--he appears to have an eyebrow stripe but also his throat seems pale 2. Coopers vs. Sharpie (could not get a shot of legs before he flew)
  6. 15 Feb 2021 Baldwin co. AL offshore mudflats in estuarine environment
  7. 15 Feb 2021 Baldwin co. AL; private pond While driving today, I noted a small flock of ducks which had apparently just taken off from a small pond. They were fairly large and mostly brown in the body with wings that showed a large white stripe. I have seen Black-belled ducks on the ground before, but never in flight. Could what I saw be anything else? Several sightings have been posted for my county in the same area in which I saw my birds today.
  8. 13 Feb 2021 Mobile co. AL; public lake & park I was hoping this was a Greater White-fronted Goose, but now I think it is a domestic Heinz 57.
  9. 09 Feb 2021 Thick undergrowth & hurricane debris at foot of bluff among pines, oaks, azaleas & near walkway in bayside public park. I recognize Northern Cardinal, Carolina Chickadees, and Carolina Wrens in this clip. There is another bird sound in there that I don't recognize. It is a 2-note, somewhat burry call that, to my ear, seems to descend with the first note, then ascend with the second note. It occurs fairly regularly at around 3.2, 5.8, 8, 13, 17, 22... 20210209_100124.wav
  10. Feb 2021 Baldwin co. AL I would have called this a House Finch b/c of so much brown on the face and the curved culmen, although he does have a lot of red on the back, short tail, and only faint streaking. Can someone help me with the specific features on this photo that determine this bird is a Purple Finch? https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/304790061
  11. 08 Feb 2021 Baldwin co. AL; bayside 1. ?Red-breasted Merganser (vs. Common Merganser vs. ??); he appears to have a red eye, but his bill looks broad for a merganser, so idk... 2. ?Chipping Sparrow (with Northern Cardinal for scale) 3. ??
  12. 21 Jan 2021 Baldwin co. AL Estuary/Bay Comparing to the Killdeer for perspective/size and looking at their bills.
  13. 18 Jan 2021 Baldwin co. AL No pics b/c he flew before I could get him. Large, apparent raptor with rufous-y back and wings high in a tree in my neighborhood this evening. He was not upright, he was lying down & across a branch. His feathers were "fluffed". When he flew off, his belly looked light compared to the rest of him and the under side of his wing tips looked dark. He was too far for me to discern any streaking/banding patterns. I think it was a raptor, but it was a weird perching place for a Red-Tailed so I was favoring Red-Shouldered, thinking, perhaps the wing pattern wasn't apparent due to distance? But that weird lying-down posture? I don't know what to make of that. It reminded me of an anting Blue Jay. He didn't seem to be injured when he flew off.
  14. 13 Jan 2021 Baldwin co. AL Heavily wooded bayfront trail coursing through cypress swamps & mixed piney woods & deciduous hardwoods 1. ?Ruby Crowned Kinglet--couldn't get a clear look at the face/upper parts; I thought the tail underside was too dark for a warbler sp. 2. ?Orange-Crowned Warbler--by tail pattern, undersides, and range 3. ?Pine Warbler vs. Yellow Rumped --he's quite dull, but pale neck/dark cheek, pale supralorals
  15. 05 Jan 2021 Baldwin co AL Deep (pine & oak) woods adjacent to longleaf/loblolly pine stand and river I was reviewing photos and found this little fella hiding in the background of a photo I took of another bird. He is in deep shadow, so hard to tell colors, but upperparts are darker compared to lighter undersides that show some streaking/color; also appears to have a faint eye ring, & no wing bars. Photo 1 Photo 2
  16. Dec 2020 Baldwin co. AL With the exception of the lone Fish Crow (heard & saw him call) to the far left, are these all Ring-billed Gulls?
  17. 27 De 2020 Baldwin co. AL estuarine environment I ID'd this as a Pine Warbler from other views. UTc are white and he has the dark "V" and spot pattern consistent with Pine Warbler, but he has yellow around the vent. Is yellow around the vent acceptable for Pine Warbler? If you only had the view from underneath (Photo 2) could a relatively secure ID be made on the "V", tail pattern, white UTc? Photo 1 Photo 2
  18. 05 Jan 2021 Baldwin co. AL Any idea what species (or even just the genus) for this hummingbird? I have no shots of him in flight. This is a different individual than the confirmed Rufous that has been visiting. Is that a band on his right foot?
  19. 28 Dec 2020 Baldwin co. AL; estuarine environment; heavy vegetation As compared to the Yellow-rumped Warbler, the bird towards the upper right of the warbler is larger, with a longer tail, and slimmer in profile. He is deep in shadow, but appears to have a rusty patch under the tail. I don't think those are true spots on the back/wing.
  20. 27 Dec 2020 Baldwin co. AL Mudflats; estuarine environment 1. Left to Right (5 birds): Dunlin X4 and ?Least Sandpiper 2. L to R (5 birds): Dunlin, Least, ?, Dunlin, Willet 3. L to R (4 birds) same big guy from #2, 2 birds in center, bird in lower R corner 4. Black-bellied Plover
  21. 27 Dec 2020 Baldwin co. AL Scrub Palmetto/Beachside & Marsh/Ponds/Lagoons 1. Immature Pied-Billed Grebe 2. Bufflehead 3. Chipping Sparrow 4. Palm Warbler (never seen them here with the brown cap) vs. ? 5. ?? 6. Starling (who has had a bad day) vs. ? 7. House Wren 8. Yellow-Rumped Warbler--he has a lot of yellow on his breast, so I wasn't sure about him; we thought he was a BG Gnatcatcher at first, the way he was moving through the brush 9. Eastern Towhee? Spotted Towhee (not supposed to be here), I really have no idea on this one This last one is a repeat, but the Edit feature won't let me delete it
  22. 23 Dec 2020 Public pier on bay Before I started birding I knew all of the gulls of Alabama: 1) Laughing Gull 2) not a Laughing Gull Now that I know about Franklin's, I feel I don't even know Laughing Gulls anymore. In the past I would have called the 5 gulls in the background Laughing Gulls, but now I am wondering if the amount of dark grey on their heads is more consistent with Franklin's. Am I overanalyzing? I think the one in the foreground is a Ring-Billed
