  1. 21 Sept 2021 Baldwin co. AL suburban backyard Bless his heart. His mama loves him.
  2. 20 Sept 2021 Baldwin co. AL; suburban yard; among a group of various warbler species gleaning mid-to high Live Oak canopy
  3. 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?
  4. 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?
  5. 22 Jul 2021 Baldwin co. AL; public park & campground on island at delta; estuarine environment with piney/mixed hardwood forest 1 & 2: I heard birds singing in Black Willow trees and then this bird flew out; I thought it was going to be an Orchard Oriole, but now wondering if it might be a Painted Bunting. 1. 2. Recording: 20210722_092043 - Copyed.wav--this is what I heard before the bird flew 3. Same general area: 20210722_092624 - Copyed.wav 4. Not sure of this ID b/c of the eye ring
  6. I thought Red-eyed, but the cadence and pitch seemed a little different, but it was difficult to hear the bird over the cacophony of background sounds from the cicadas, etc. 20210714_101826 - Copyed.wav
  7. I think the first bird (within the first 2 secs of the recording) is a REVI and may be the same bird as in my earlier post. Marked by yellow line. The second bird sounds like the first part of a Yellow-billed Cuckoo's call, but he never finished that I heard. Could it be something else? Marked by yellow dot. 20210714_101744 - Copyed.wav
  8. 14 July 2021 Baldwin co. AL; bayside park with heavily-wooded trails; oak/pine/hickory/cypress My best guess is Great-crested Flycatcher, but I'm not sure about that ID. He was amongst a group of Carolina Chickadees.
  9. 08 Jun 2021 Baldwin co. AL; edge of heavy deciduous woods at river/bayside beach
  10. 06 Jun 2021 Baldwin co. AL; Longleaf Pine savannah surrounded by wet oak/hickory woods I couldn't visualize him well with my bins, but he looks like a blurry BLGR. He was singing loudly from pretty high in a tree, but I did not record his song and I couldn't describe it from memory.
  11. 25 Feb 2021 Baldwin co. AL; quiet, sheltered inlet of small saltwater bay. The low, short, ascending call (not the Laughing Gulls). 20210225_090510 - Copyed.wav
  12. 27 May 2021 Baldwin co. AL; bayside marsh & thickets with marture pine, cypress, palmetto I wonder if it is a Downy/Hairy whose upper stripe is catching the light.
  13. 14 May 2021 Baldwin co. AL; brackish marsh/ wooded swamp. I just want to be sure I'm not mis-IDing. I usually hear the Red-eyeds call before I see them, but these 2 were completely silent the entire time I was there. Also, Red-eyeds not commonly seen at this particular hotspot.
  14. 14 May 2021 Baldwin co. AL; mouth of Mobile-Tensaw delta; brackish swamp/marsh This sounds a lot like an Eastern Meadowlark, but the bird was calling from a thicket that was in standing water in the middle of a swampy landmass in the middle of a large body of water that can only be reached by the elevated boardwalk or by boat. No grasslands close by. Additionally, what appeared to be a warbler flushed from the thicket and the song stopped. I could not ID the flying warbler, but saw mostly/all yellow underparts and a much darker (?brown) head. Hooded Warbler was my best guess in the field, but I did/do not feel confident enough in that ID to submit it as such. So, I either had 2 different birds or they are one and the same. 20210514_090327 - Copy_ed.wav
  15. 08 May 2021; Baldwin co. AL; gulf beach 1. Sanderling (S), SEPA (SP) & ? 2. Western (W) & Sanderling (Sn) 3. L to R: Western & SESA
  16. 08 May 2021 Baldwin co. AL; Bayside historical park; Heavily wooded with Live Oak, hickory, etc. Heavy brambles and thicket
  17. 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
  18. 08 May 2021 Baldwin co. AL; I think this is a Herring Gull, but his bill looks really bulbous. There were 2 of them.
  19. 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
  20. 08 May 2021 Baldwin co. AL; seaside; grassy meadows flooded with fresh water from recent rains 1. Black Bellied Plovers--bill, shape, & size look good, but wondered if the back color was too solid? 2.. Least Sandpiper 3. Solitary Sandpiper 4. Spotted Sandpiper(s) 5. Upland Sandpiper 6. Western Sandpipers 7. ?
  21. 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.
  22. ?Royal Tern--wing pattern & tail rule out Caspian
  23. 05 Apr 2021 Baldwin co. AL Bayside public park and lake with large trees, shrubs, and abundant brush
  24. 31 Mar 2021 Baldwin co. AL small seasonal pond in agricultural field ?Greater Yellowlegs
