  2. 21 Jun 2021 Pinellas co. FL Lakeside hiking trail through varied habitat including scrub, savannah, oak/pine woods. Definite, usual Blue Jay call at end of recording. I am interested in IDing the two other calls that occur earlier in the recording (marked with single and double yellow dots). These sounds may likely also be Blue Jays. 20210621_130143 - Copyed.wav
  3. 12 Jun 2021 Shelby co. AL; lakeside cabins in public park; lawn & heavy woods Among the Eastern Phoebe & Red-bellied Woodpecker calls are two songs. Although the sonogram is that of the entire 2:08 minute recording, the bird in question sings mostly in the first 20 seconds of the recording, which is all I have uploaded. 20210612_072426 - Copyedebird.wav
  4. 25 Apr 2021 Mobile co. AL; public lake & park 1. Orchard Orioles--male in lower part of frame and immature/females above; what I ID'd as female Orchards were 4 mustard-yellow birds flying in a quarrelsome group. I though either female oriole or tanager sp. The four fought while flying and when perched. I could not get a good look or shot of them due to their frenetic movements. Is such behavior consistent with female Orchards or does something else come to mind? 2. female/immature Orchard Oriole 3. Barn Swallow 4. Eastern Kingbird 5. ?Common Grackle--but his tail looks short 6. Brown-headed Cowbird vs. Shiny Cowbird vs. other blackbird sp. 7. Least Tern 8. Which Tern--it was a small tern, but bill looked too orange for Least, cap didn't look quite right for Forster's

  9. 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!!
  10. peaceful greetings. on 07 july 2020, we made a visit to the lake. a duck was swimming by themself. i decided to take some photos and video, and spend a little time with them if they would allow. in this video, as i was recording the duck (female mallard, mayhaps?), a mystery guest star appeared. due to size, I've had to trim out most of duck in this video, in order to be able to upload mystery bird. (video of duck still remains). mystery bird trim.mp4
  11. greetings. swimming on water. mostly alone. bill looks black. black stripe across eye, bordered by whitish swaths above and below. body seemed dark brown, with white edges here and there. eye also seemed dark. dark brown cap, with other parts of head and throat possibly appearing a lighter brown. my best efforts (female): mallard; american black; green-winged teal. apologies for poor lighting / quality: the sun will be where the sun be; i have yet to learn the phone camera advanced options. edit: 07 july 2020; late afternoon / prevening / evening.
  12. greetings. first post. possible nonbreeding adult ring-billed gull: lake Erie, western new york state; late june; late afternoon / early evening (/prevening). observed in water; flying short distances; walking and laying on dry land (grass); on rocky shore; walking on pavement. body mostly white, some (grey / grey-brown?) mottling on head and neck area; wings mostly grey; tail end mostly dark/black; black/dark eyes; grey(?) feet. information regarding identification of species / subspecies, 'gender', approximate age, all much appreciated.
  13. I went hiking in the hills in Simi Valley which is on the border of Los Angeles County but it is in Ventura County in Southern California. In the hills there is an abandoned golf course with a small lake or pond. There are swallow or swift type looking birds swooping around close to the water and I have no idea what type of birds these are. I have searched and looked at my bird books with no success. The bird is mostly black with white around its neck and a white stomach. This is the only photo I was able to get because they flew very fast.
  14. Lake Martin, Tallapoosa co., AL. Nov 17 2019. Only had my phone. There were 2. They would go under water and stay down a good while.
  15. Hi, we have a lake lot in Sainte Genevieve County Missouri (about 60 miles south of St Louis) and for the past couple of years have more heard than seen this bird. This past weekend, 4-5 August 2018, however, was quite quiet with no one but us on our side of the lake and it came around where we could see it. Unfortunately, I had left my good camera home and only had my iPhone for video/photos. If anyone could confirm we identified it correctly or can tell us what it really is, we'd be most appreciative. Thanks!
