  1. Past hour
  2. I think most raptors remove the head, if the prey is to big to swallow whole so I don't think we can say for sure.

  4. Kind of hard to breathe way up there in the clouds isn't it? Thanks for the info. I worry about my little babies. I put them out this morning..... and it was snowing. This world is crazy.
  5. Awesome! My 1st productive NFC night was a few weeks ago. https://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S34997085
  6. Awesome! I've never really paid attention to that. So I just go outside after dusk and listen?
  7. Okay, I can definitely see that now. Thanks!
  8. Today
  9. Agreed.

  11. Thanks everyone! It was a great encounter.
  12. Hi. These two tiny frogs were at the Ridgefield Wildfife Reserve a few days ago: #1 Looked almost black in color, about 2" long #2 Little green spotted frog with major google eyes, about 3" long Thanks!!
  13. I found this squirrel in a tree a few years back and always believed it to be a hawk kill, as I had been told that owls will usually remove the head. I wanted to defer this question to you all-any ideas who may have done this based on him being peeled like this and with its head intact?
  14. Beautiful! Photo! I love Towhees as well. We also have them here in Washington, but hey our states are neighbors!
  15. Here's a range map for European Starlings, they are year round residents in Bormont. https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/PHOTO/LARGE/stur_vulg_AllAm_map.gif
  16. With apologies to those who have seen this fuzzy beast on Flickr, this is my first decently photographed bug of the year. Well, two bugs. Incidentally, it's good see some fellow and indeed sharper members of the Spurious Vein Club. Ablautus fly with prey by Jerry Friedman, on Flickr
  17. Tufted Titmouse: Baeolophus bicolor_2017-03-21_00031_small on Flickr
  18. How neat! And, it's apparently the state bird of Georgia... so I'm gonna take it as a good sign of our upcoming move.
  19. Its head is turned ~175° right now
  20. When you make your move down south, you may see them more often. I think they are more common down there. The hockey team Atlanta used to have (which thankfully moved back to Canada - no offense, but if folks in the US don't want a hockey team, plenty of cities in here in Canada will take it), was actually named the Thrashers after them.
  21. Really?! Oh now that's cool. I really dig mockingbirds... and I'm so sorry I'm fresh out of "likes"...
  22. Cool to see one out like that. They are typically under deep cover. Hopefully you get to hear it sing (visually there is no way to tell if this is male or female). It may not look like it, but they are in the same family as Northern Mockingbirds.They have hundreds of songs, many copied from other birds. Their family is actually called mimics (or in Latin - Mimidae).
  23. That is what I was hoping to see there. Great!
