  1. Hi, All. In the past, I have seen all sorts of raptors (BE, Osprey, RTH...) perch in this lonesome pine in a large field. From my perspective, this bird seemed the size for a BE, did not appear to have the small head of a vulture or Osprey, and I saw a a pale flash when he flew off. Wings held predominantly flat, not dihedral, but seemed to have a the slightest upturn at tips. Can anyone ID from this blurry silhouette?
  2. 18 June 2020. Baldwin co AL. There are several birds singing in this clip. I heard a Norther Mockingbird and an Eastern Bluebird, but I am interested in what the bird is that calls approximately every 10 seconds (aprroximately at seconds 7, 17, 26, 39). 20200618_100010 - Copy.wav
  3. Spotted this bird outside on the fence just hanging around by the bird feeder. Any ideas???
  4. 21 Mar 2020. Baldwin co., AL. <1 mile from Mobile Bay Hi, All. 😞 Today, I noted a large flock of 60-70 grackles (and possibly a few Red-Winged Blackbirds--ID'd by ear only) fly and roost for several minutes in the uppermost branches of surrounding trees. When they flew overhead, their tails were long & large, and unfurled into a shallow V at the end. I ID'd them as Boat-Tailed, but ebird popped up with an error message calling them "Infrequent". On AllAboutBirds and ebird, I listened to the calls of each of the 2 species and they did sound more like Common Grackle (but pl
  5. 11 March 2020. Dauphin Island (Mobile co.), AL. Saltwater.

  7. 11 March 2020. Dauphin Island, AL. Hi, All. There were 2 very bulky birds in this pine near the parking lot of a public pier. They were being harried mecilessly by crows resulting in one of the unknowns flying off before I could snap a pic. I thought at first they were buteos, but the tail on this one...?
  8. Taken 02/27/2020. Baldwin co. (coastal) Alabama. May or may not be same individual from last post. Ruby Throat vs Black-Chinned, and specific field marks/algorithm you used to ID, please :) We have both species (as well as the occasional Rufous and Anna's) and both the RT and BC overwinter here. Thank you!
  9. April 30, 2018. Baldwin co., AL (Coastal). Did not have the reddish tail of a Hermit Thrush.
  10. Hi, All-- Dauphin Island, AL April 16 2019. Ring Billed Gull? Juvenile or First Winter or in transition between the two? The beak is two-toned like a FW, but there is no grey on the back.
  11. Good morning, All. Amongst the usual Goldfinches, Cardinals, Wrens, Chickadees, Doves, and Titmice at my feeders this morning, there was this unknown. Could this be an Orange-Crowned Warbler? It came readily to the feeder & suet. I did not see yellow on its flanks or elsewhere. It appeared overall olive/drab & has a faint hint of an eyeline. Sorry for the underexposure and subsequent lightening. I am posting both the original and the lightened version. Thank you all. 🙂 02/22/2020. Coastal Baldwin co., AL
  12. Hi, All. These were taken 02/21/2020 Baldwin county, AL (coastal). RTs very common here. BCs much more common here than previously thought and have been sighted regularly in the last several weeks in my county. Now I am questioning everything I ever called a RT. Wings look long on this one, but I think still not long enough to be BC? The wing tips are in deep shadow and are longer than they appear at first glance. How would you all ID this and via what field marks. Thank you.
  13. Hi, All. Feb. 13, 2020. Mobile co., AL. Public park/lake. Is this a Mallard hybrid? If so Mallard X What?? A teal? Thanks in advance. 🙂
  14. No pic. Two (amateur) observers. Just got a quick glimpse in passing: low flying raptor, roadside field, coastal Alabama 01/19/2018. Looked like a Buteo. Conspicuous, rather wide, white bands on dorsal side of wings toward tips. Kriders (confirmed) have been spotted by others in county Oct-Dec 2109.
  15. April 24, 2017. Small seasonal freshwater pond/Grady pond. Coastal Alabama.
  16. Hi, All. I believe this to be a RBWP but it looked odd. I think it is due to the distance/poor quality of the photo & the fact he is fluffing and windblown, but wanted to confirm. He was incredibly high up in a dead tree. June 2019. Baldwin co. AL
