  1. 27 Mar 2021 Baldwin co. AL; suburban yard; mid canopy
  2. 18 Jan 2021 Baldwin co. AL No pics b/c he flew before I could get him. Large, apparent raptor with rufous-y back and wings high in a tree in my neighborhood this evening. He was not upright, he was lying down & across a branch. His feathers were "fluffed". When he flew off, his belly looked light compared to the rest of him and the under side of his wing tips looked dark. He was too far for me to discern any streaking/banding patterns. I think it was a raptor, but it was a weird perching place for a Red-Tailed so I was favoring Red-Shouldered, thinking, perhaps the wing pattern wasn't apparent due to distance? But that weird lying-down posture? I don't know what to make of that. It reminded me of an anting Blue Jay. He didn't seem to be injured when he flew off.
  3. 3 May 2020 Baldwin co AL; suburban yard One bird calls at 1, 5, 9, 15... Second species (I think multiple individuals, though) quick, high whistles (?cardinals) I recognize the Laughing Gulls calling from overhead. They are on their way from our local dump to the one in Pensacola. I could set my watch by them. ? 20200503_084634 - Copy.wav

  5. 30 Nov 2020 Baldwin co AL Also--we had our first cold front come through last night with a light freeze/frost predicted tonight. There were 4 individual woodpeckers (at least 3 different species--Red Bellied, Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker, Downy/Hairy, and this guy) working the same Live Oak tree simultaneously in close proximity to one another. Although I've seen each species before, I don't recall it being a come-one-come-all dining experience. Could it be weather-related or just a coincidence?

  7. 31 Oct 2020 Baldwin co. AL Flitting through Live Oaks.
  8. 03 Oct 2020 Baldwin co AL Feeding on fairly open ground in yard. The tail looked grey in comparison to the back, so ???
  9. 18 Aug 2020 Baldwin co. AL Good morning, All. I found these portions of eggshell in 2 separate locations in my yard. One was lying under a tall hedgerow and the other was found on the other side of a tall fence on a tabletop on our back patio--I assume carried there by a larger animal. They are white, unspeckled, smooth, and appear to be from 2 different eggs. 1. Any ideas what species of bird? 2. Based on the shell-break pattern (pretty neatly linear), can it be determined if predator or hatchling opened the egg?
  10. Baldwin co., AL. 11 April 2020. Song is repeated throughout, at approximately 0, 2, 6, 10, 12, 15, 20, 24. Then the Laughing Gulls take over. 20200411_104839Unk - Copy.wav
  11. In my neighborhood we really only see Northern Mockingbirds, Cardinals, Blue Jays, Crows, and the occasional Woodpecker. Saturday morning I heard an unusual bird call and saw, on a roof, a bird that was: the size/shape of a Northern Mockingbird; mostly light gray(white?) with a black crown (ie the beak and everything from the beakline up was black.) So it was colored like a Great Tern (but obviously wasn't) and it wasnt a Black-Capped Chickadee, both because of geography and its small size. It made a warbling sound for which I could see its throat clearly undulating. Help please? Thank though, Simon
  12. This hawk died by window strike at my house today. ? Our dog was looking out of the french doors and the hawk tried to dive bomb her and died on impact with the glass. Eyes are yellowish head is brown Baldwin county Alabama (Gulf Coast).
  13. Taken today near dusk. Definite red tail. Picking through leaf litter and in grass, then flitting to & perching in low branches of blueberry bushes. Very shy--stayed behind obstacles, which made photographing him very difficult. Would an Ovenbird be similar in appearance or would it not have the contrasting tail?
