  1. Past hour
  2. 1. lol 2. Not exactly sure which species this is... Great-billed, maybe (the guide calls it Long-tailed, which got split and the taxonomy of that complex is now a mess)? Could be White-bearded maybe. 3. Same as above. 4. Dusky-headed Parakeet. Peach-fronted has an extremely limited range in Peru, just a bit further east than Puerto Maldonado. Plus, the whole color pattern is off for that species (especially after lightening the shot up, which I did).
  3. We've had a new visitor to the yard recently, an opossum that appears to be wintering in the landlady's run down storage shed. I'm hoping it's a female and I might get the chance to see her carrying her babies around on her back in a few months. *crossing my fingers* IMG_1630 by lonestranger102, on Flickr Yes, I still spend too much time pointing the camera at the rabbits and here's a few more photos to prove it.

  4. Agreed -- the front bird in the first shot looks like an Olive-backed to me as well.
  5. Agree with Buff-throated Saltator.
  6. It is a Saltator, and I believe it is a Buff-throated Saltator rather than Black-headed, although additional photos could help (better look at throat or head/neck).
  7. Note the rufous vent. This is a female Olive-backed Euphonia.
  8. Shadow and Minou sharing the warmth of the wood stove while napping.

  9. Today
  10. Awesome! Congratulations!
  11. Female. males would Dark Blue on there wings.
  12. 1: ????? 2: Hermit, not sure which 3: Peach-fronted Parakeet
  13. Agree with lesser Scaup
  14. That is interesting. I'm a novice birder so I can't say that applies to the whole state, but at least in my specific area (far from Lake Erie) the lessers are more common.
  15. Most folks on the site use something like Flickr, Pbase, Photobucket or Imgur. I would say Flickr is the most popular. Stay away from Google Photos it does not allow you to embed pics on other sites like that. Interesting - here in Ontario which is not that far away from Ohio, at least where I live, in winter it is the opposite, assume Greater unless definitive proof exists otherwise. And thats all fresh water, while Ontario has a long salt water coast, there are no ducks there now.
  16. Thanks. I would agree with lesser/greater scaup. From what I remember seeing, ring-necked can be ruled out. Lesser scaup would be more likely since this is a freshwater pond and those are more common to overwinter than greater. Both species have been reported in this location, but greater only in spring. as for the link, when I copy and paste from http to jpg, the picture doesn't come up. Since you were able to see it, I will leave it for now and just find a different platform for future posts
  17. That still is not working, but it is because of how you are posting the links. The pics are there (there is enough there to pull out the link if you know how to edit the link you posted). Those are really tough pics to do an ID on. I think but will not say I am sure they are in the Scaup group - either Greater Scaup, Lesser Scaup or Ring-necked Duck. Which of those would not be possible to be sure I fear. Fyi the first would have worked if you started with the http and ended with the .jpg. The other stuff with the % signs etc is html formatting code.

  19. Sorry but the links don't work.
  20. %5BIMG%5D %5BIMG%5D i found these ducks today in Ohio and I'm stumped. The bill base seemed white, the head blackish, and the body a little more brown. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
  21. Congratulations! That's so awesome!
  22. This morning I received some good news, I was accepted to North Carolina State University, which was my primary choice for college!
  23. Black head should be a giveaway, but can't find it in my books. Costa Rica, 29 December 2016
