  4. 31 Oct 2021 Baldwin co. AL; small seasonal pond in agricultural field. I commonly see shorebirds, herons, egrets, ducks, buteos, kestrels, Northern Harrier, and snipe here. There were 2 Killdeer and 5 immature Black-bellied Whistling ducks here when I recorded this (there had been 7 plus the mother a few days prior ? ), but none appeared to be making the call. It is the quick, fairly regular, monotone call. Could be a herp. 2021-10-31 1805 - Copyed.wav

  13. I am going to observe bird-banding for the first time. https://www.gulfshores.com/events-calendar/community-events/fort-morgan-bird-banding/ I found the banding protocol on ebird: https://support.ebird.org/en/support/solutions/articles/48000950859-guide-to-ebird-protocols I won't be banding, but I do want to count the birds I see while I am there. Would I do my own lists following the Banding Protocol or do I have one of the banders share their list of banded birds with me and I edit to reflect what I personally saw? @Connor Cochrane@Liam

  17. 04 Oct 2021 Baldwin co. AL I ID'd this as immature Mississippi Kite, but eBird is not giving me that option. I realize they should be gone by now, so would like some confirmation/correction. One was seen in Pensacola, FL (adjacent county to mine) on Oct. 1.

  24. Baldwin co. AL Sept 2021 Hi, All. We have had resident Barred Owls for the 20+ years we have lived in our suburban neighborhood. They call frequently (and raucously) at night and commonly in the daytime, also, and it is not unusual for them to fly through or perch for a time in the yard. My question: Other than mating season & contact calls between mates/family members, at what other times would a Barred Owl hoot? I ask, because a couple of days ago, in the late afternoon (still full daylight), a lone Barred was hooting from fairly low in a tree, then dropped to the ground behind some shrubbery, then flew back into the canopy to a different perch. It looked as though he/she were taking prey, but I thought it odd the owl would call attention to itself with hooting if that were the case. There was no reply from any other owl that I could hear. Thoughts?
  25. 28 Jul 2021 Baldwin co. .AL Until recently, most brown birds I glimpsed at the feeder were female House Finches, but a day or so ago, we had a male cardinal show up with its adopted Brown-headed Cowbird "child" which it began feeding. Now I am questioning any brown, plain, somewhat streaky-breasted bird I see. Differentiating marks?
