Those really cool birds!


Recommended Posts

Ooh, here's a fun game if anyone wants to play:

1. Take the first letter of the name you go by.

2. Take the first letter of your 11th life bird on eBird (or your personal list)

3. Plug in your birthday in Macaulay (month) and take the first letter of the top rated image species over all years taken on your birth date (you may have to scroll a bit)

4. And take the LAST letter of the bird you get when you hit "Surprise Me" on eBird once.

5. Make a banding code out of it by trying different combinations and searching on eBird, and reply with your favorite out of the species you got!

I got...

Red-and-white Antpitta

What happens if you don't get any birds with your banding code?

I got the letters MARL and there was only ONE combo of those four letters that got anything:

Red-lored Parrot

(we won't discuss how long I had to scroll before I found a top rated photo on my birthday. . . . .
