Idaho is special I guess. We don't have Mockingbirds here either 😠

I didn't really have a chance with that last one either.  They're quite uncommon here.  I get very excited when I see a mockingbird anywhere!

Wow!! Guess I didn't realize that Mockingbirds weren't in all the lower 48 States . I didn't look at their range map. I've lived in Ala, Fla, Ga, Wyoming, and Calif, and I've been in all but 7 of the 50 States. Thought I had seen them everywhere!! :classic_huh:

Yep, but it's only crow(s) on a roof, not ravens.

Anyone else think that 'crow(s) on a roof' is going a bit long?

No.  I'd like to give it at least a week.  I tried to make it difficult! :)

We have a crow family in our yard.  Every time I try to take their pic, they scatter.  They are very skittish.  I will keep stalking them...

Apparently Crows are having an aversion to perching on rooftops lately....lol

Almost had one yesterday! A Crow lit on the roof across the street, but flew just as I got outside with my camera! The word must be out among them not to get caught on a roof!!

Why not do more then one challenge at a time. Maybe it wouldn't drag on so much for those who have no chance of seeing that bird in there area.

I think that would be very confusing.  It would be difficult to tell which challenges are still going and which ones are not.  Like I said, we can end the current challenge if a lot of us are for it.  I'm okay with ending this one.

I think so. If I had time I could probably get it but right now I'm lacking severely in time :classic_laugh:

How about a Hawk on the ground? That should be doable for most ranges correct?

Cell phone pic taken just now 🙂

I can't figure out how to take a half-decent photo with a phone.  Do you recall how far you were from this bird?

I was quite a distance - maybe a hundred and fifty feet? He was on the ground when I first saw him eating something and as luck would have it as I watched he flew up to the nearby roof top. I zoom in on my phone as much as possible and take the photo. Then when you open the photo up on your phone you can zoom in again and I take a screen shot of the extra zoomed in photo. Does that make sense. I will post the original photo in a second and then you can see how much it can zoom in from your phone gallery.

Just a reminder we are still looking for a winning photo of a hawk on the ground taken on 4/16 or later. I'll give it a another day or so and if we still have no winner we can choose another challenge. Thanks. Happy Hunting!
