  4. 10 Feb 2021 Baldwin co. AL; Mobile Bay American White Pelican vs. Great Egret These birds were far offshore on a spit of sandbar. They never did raise their heads. Before I could go back and get my spotting scope, it started pouring rain, so these are the best shots I have. I thought their overall shape, posture, & fact they were in a pretty tight social group was more on the side of American White Pelican, but idk. There is a Ring-billed Gull on the far left for reference.

  6. 23 Dec 2020 Public pier on bay Before I started birding I knew all of the gulls of Alabama: 1) Laughing Gull 2) not a Laughing Gull Now that I know about Franklin's, I feel I don't even know Laughing Gulls anymore. In the past I would have called the 5 gulls in the background Laughing Gulls, but now I am wondering if the amount of dark grey on their heads is more consistent with Franklin's. Am I overanalyzing? I think the one in the foreground is a Ring-Billed
  7. 01 Dec 2020 Baldwin co. AL; Mobile Bay; public pier & park On walk with daughter, so no camera today. Saw what I thought at first were 3 red & white crab trap floats, but ultimately decided they were birds. They were fairly close to shore, but not close enough to see any detail. My daughter (who is 30 years younger and with better eyesight) confirmed they were birds. With my bins, I could see red heads and light bodies, but couldn't see a lot of detail. They weren't very active, just floating. The birds looked rather compacted A-P. I ID'd as Redhead. Cornell site also suggests Canvasback, but the birds I saw didn't have that stretched-out head look that the pics have. Thoughts? Anything else I should consider? Camera & spotting scope are taking a trip to the pier tomorrow.
