About Me


  1. 01 Dec 2021 Baldwin co. AL; abandoned homesite; heard from within very thick privet thicket https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/392581411
  2. 01 Dec 2021 Baldwin co. AL; small season pond on agricultural parcel I still have problems IDing non-breeding shorebirds
  3. 30 Nov 2021 Baldwin co. AL bayside public park; heavily wooded boardwalk trails; beach, cypress swamp, pines, palmetto 1. Pretty sure it's a Black-bellied, I don't see any golden hues, but that eyestripe is really crisp 2. Savannah Sparrow--but the bill looks wrong and the bird looks beefy 3. Carolina Wren, but would the flank barring indicate it came from Texas?
  4. 02 Nov 2021 Baldwin co. AL; estuary/delta; among reeds in standing water I don't see the heavy streaking on the back that the Marsh Wren should have, but the habitat was wrong for Winter Wren
  5. 24 Nov 2021 Baldwin co. AL suburban yard I could never get a good look at the tail, but he seemed too big for a Sharpie as he cruised by the (empty) feeders a couple of times Might explain why there have been very few avian visitors lately.
  6. 11 Nov 2021; Baldwin co. AL; bayside public park; heavily wooded trails; cypress swamps; feeding very high in a tall pine Help me out with field marks when you can't see the face nor the coloration.
  7. 11 Nov 2021 Baldwin co. AL; I know he has 2 tiny black spots, but I favor Hairy
  8. 8 Nov 2021 Baldwin co. AL; bayside public park; beach, pier, scattered trees, small duck ponds; elderly people doing tai chi... 1. First Winter Ring-billed 2. Juvenile Herring Gull--huge gull, checkered back 3. Least Sandpiper--small; scalloped/edged feathers, yellow legs 4. Red-shouldered Hawk vs. Broad-winged--Buteo with longish tail; never got a good frontal or undertail view As always, if my IDs are wrong, please share how to arrive at the proper one(s). ?
  9. 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
  10. 09 Oct 2021 Baldwin co. AL; suburban neighborhood Lots of "smacking" and run-on phrases quickly repeated once, twice, or rarel 4 times, including imitations of TUTI, WOTH, Eastern Bluebird, White-eyed Vireo, Chuck-will's Widow. 20211009_062204 - Copyed.wav
  11. 02 Nov 2021 Baldwin co. AL; estuary/marsh; delta 1. Bird to left looks like a grebe sp. & appears to have a red eye; bird to right, cormorant (bill looked good for that) vs. loon (appears to be a paleness to the throat) but not holding bill like our usual Common Loon. 2. Blue-winged Teal vs. teal sp. vs. other; I don't see any creamy line at the tails.
  12. 02 Nov 2021 Baldwin co. AL; public park/campground; delta/estuary; wooded pine/hickory trails
  13. 02 Nov 2021 baldwin co. AL; public park at delta; walking trails through moderate pine/hickory woods 1. I think just bad angles of Myrtle 2. ?
  14. 31 Oct 2021 Baldwin co. AL; abandoned homesite; in mixed flock Bill looks long, fairly thick (I thought unwarbler-like), and somewhat down-turning Can you walk me through the ID?
  15. 30 Oct 2021 Baldwin co. AL; beach; flushed from vegetated dunes where they were feeding on Sea Oats.
  16. 30 Oct 2021 Baldwin co. AL; seaside; coastal scrub habitat/dunes. Due to sun, I could not get an appreciation (nor a photo) of face pattern, but there does not appear to be an eyebrow or line present.
  17. 26 Oct 2021 Baldwin co. AL; public park at former military fort & grounds; gulf & bay fronts; beach, open fields, thicket, thin woods 1. UFO 2. House Wren 3. Palm Warbler
  18. 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
  19. 08 Oct 2021 06:20; Baldwin co. AL; suburban yard Sounded like a nightjar, but not enough to speciate. We have Chuck-wills-widow year-round; Eastern Whip-poor-will winter here. 20211008_062050 - Copyed2.wav
  20. 08 Oct 2021 Baldwin co. AL 06:19; suburban yard 20211008_061917 - Copyed2.wav
  21. 06 Oct 2021 Baldwin co. AL; base of delta, riverside; estuarine environment. Caspian Tern grunts interspersed with whistles of at least 2 syllables. Wondered if these were juvenile Caspians, but wasn't sure if they would be calling this late in the year 20211006_142952 - Copyed.wav
  22. 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.
  23. 05 Oct 2021 Baldwin co. AL; bayside public park; heavy woods; heard from elevated boardwalk through cypress swamp, began to record & then saw 2 birds fly with flash of yellow, but could not definitively ID. Calls ceased after they flew 2021-10-05 0900ed.wav
  24. 04 Oct 2021 Baldwin co. AL; good-size flock of chickadees, warblers, vireos, etc. came in today after heavy rains. These are some I couldn't ID, and are probably birds I have seen and should know, but I'm still not very good with silhouettes. 1. 2. 3. 4. 4.
  25. 26 Sept 2021 Baldwin co. AL; riparian woodlands (oak/pine/red & Atlantic cedar), few scattered homes 2021-09-25 1619ed2.wav
