Hello! I've recently moved to the Raleigh NC area and there are so many new animals for me to learn about! I took a hike on Sunday to a nearby lake and spotted this interesting friend. The bird was perched on a log sticking up out of the water, only about ten feet from the shore. The weather was sunny and warm and it was about 3:30 in the afternoon. When we went by the first time, this one was alone, but coming back, there was another perched right next to it. I couldn't hear it's call, but I could see it's throat moving. We joked that it looked like it was gargling. It did it over and over and seemed undisturbed by our group discussing it at conversation volume nearby, is fair considering it looked to be at least a foot tall. Thank you for any help!!
Hello: Can folks help confirm if I ID'd these birds photographed in Shenandoah National Park, VA correctly? Birds photos are in this short video, ID'd with a subtitle. Some shots are a bit blurry, sorry. Any help is greatly appreciated! Video: https://youtu.be/JUm-XuDjafs Thanks, Dave O.
