  1. White Goose

    Thanks all, two lifers in two days!
  2. White Goose

    Can someone confirm Snow Goose? Or is it a domestic goose? I know it is a long distance photo, but I hope there is enough evidence to write it in as a lifer.
  3. Any Lifers?

    Got Northern Rough-winged Swallow... at work. Now to find one when I have my camera in hand.
  4. LOL!

    We just put up six new bird houses at the beginning of this week. "MINE! LEAVE!"
  5. Those "Almost" Good Shots!!

    Oh well, still a good upgrade picture.
  6. Common Sparrows

    FOTY Swamp Sparrow. I just about swallowed my tongue when this individual popped up right in front of me.
  7. Have you met a Whatbirder?

    I haven't met any Whatbirders that I know of, but when bagging groceries if I see someone get lots suet or birdseed I will usually try to strike up a conversation about birds. I did talk to one person who read Whatbird, but I don't think was a forum member. I missed Barnswallow by a couple of days when that Snowy Owl was hanging around at Mud level Road.
  8. A Sign of Spring

    I mentioned to a coworker that the Robins came back about a week ago. Even though she isn't a birder she looked at me and said, "You beat me." I guess birders aren't the only ones looking for robins.
  9. Not an ID or picture but... I heard the spring peepers last night!!!
  10. Whatbird's Young Birders!

    Very funny jdeitsch. I didn't mention the number because I only saw fifteen species. Not even the Eastern Towhee or Field Sparrows that have been hanging around showed up. Winter is very slow here. At least I saw a Pileated Woodpecker. They're common, but I know saw people have them as a nemesis.
  11. Birding Memes or Something

    Here is one I tossed together.
  12. Whatbird's Young Birders!

    Didn't see many birds on my count, but I did get an upgrade RTH picture (don't laugh).
  13. Other hobbies?

    There is an open shed next door so in the middle of the summer you can get about 30-40 Barn Swallows diving all around you at once, often only several feet away. Don't worry, I still pay attention to where I drive. I do hate the ticks and the biting flies, but I don't get bit by mosquitoes. Lucky me.
  14. How many redpolls?

    I hate using X's in my reports too, one day last fall I kept track of Blue Jays that were constantly flying overhead by twos and threes throughout the course of an hour, no easy task as there where plenty of other birds present. Instead of a (in my opinion) lazy X, I put in my (conservative) estimate of 300. One day last spring I saw multiple flocks of Canada Geese flying over, so I took pictures of each flock when I got home. I know 390 geese doesn't seem like a lot, but it took a while to count all the geese from all the flocks. I think this is one OCD that eBird reviewers appreciate.
  15. Other hobbies?

    I enjoy: 1. Birding 2. Photography 3. Identifying butterflies, dragonflies, and other living things 4. Piano 5. Reading 6. Volleyball,it would be higher on the list, though I don't get to play it too often 7. Sometimes drawing Some other things I really like, but depend more so on the time of year, ice skating, frisbee, mowing the yard, (the Barn Swallow family from next door performs an air show) and driving four wheeler (at a friends house).
