A few years ago I spotted this Raven breaking limestone off of a larger rock to swallow.  Has anyone seen something like this?  I know that birds will swallow rocks to aid digestion, but it was interesting that this bird apparently wanted new pieces.

I didn’t realize there were gathering like this in the East of Snow Geese.  I knew they had big gatherings in the Mississippi Flyway, and they flag as a rare here in Michigan.  

We get groups of a few thousand in VT, but just across the lake NY gets a much bigger movement.

Yes NJ gets quite a few in certain parts of the state. They tend to congregate in the saltmarshes & farming areas, especially corn stubble. It was near dusk & this particular area probably had over 10,000 birds within a 1/2 mile radius with more constantly arriving to roost.

Not sure if I should just start a separate thread or not.  Trying to put together a fairly comprehensive list of YouTube videos and channels related to birds/birding.  One thing with the past couple of years is stuff that Audubon groups would have just done live, they had to do via video and those recordings are available.  Lots of videos on ID, trips, etc.  

 

Does anyone have any favorite videos, channels or blogs they watch/watched?

This guy has some fun vids of finding Great Gray Owls, plus a whole bunch of photography tips: https://www.youtube.com/c/SteveMattheis/videos

This guy is definitely more bird-focused, and represents birding well: https://www.youtube.com/c/StefanoIaniro/videos

I haven't watched anything of theirs, but they've got a ton of videos: https://www.youtube.com/c/BadgerlandBirding/videos

I just found the BB guys recently, and through them Stefano.  I like the challenge videos those two did against each other.  

Mattheis always has such great luck with wildlife out there, especially the Great Gray Owls.

BBC Earth has had some amazing footage of birds and nature in general.

I'll have to look up some of their videos.  I should have noted trying to focus mainly on NA stuff right now.

I like Cornell lab of Ornithology live feeder and nest cams, and I came across this channel about one guy's big year.
