Your Favorite Bird of The Day!!

Yesterday: an American Goldfinch I heard singing, first time I IDed one singing. The only reason I recognized it right away was: I was wondering if it really sounded like “potato chips”, so I listened to it(it doesn’t IMO) and thus my subconscious learned a song.I recognized it as “oh that one bird… wait it’s that one bird that doesn’t sound like potato chips… that one bird is a AMGO! Is there a term for say: looking in a field  guide, seeing a WBNU in it, then seeing a WBNU a few weeks later, and you know immediately that’s a WBNU.? If there isn’t there should be.

Yep, that's how a learned a lot of my bird vocalizations.

Went birding in Atlanta today. Not a bunch of birds, but I got some nice photos, birded a few new counties, saw a couple county lifers, and visited some friends that moved from Dublin, GA. Hard to choose what my favorite bird of the day was, though I would probably say it was a NOMO that was mimicking everything from Mallards to Brown-headed Nuthatches.

Very hard to choose today. Either 600 BHCO (way underestimate) which triggered the high count by about 250, or 128 CEDW (individually counted) that mean that spring migration is on its way!

Bro you individually counted 128 birds?! Respect. That’s a lot of BHCOs…
