  1. I don't have any experience with Vortex binoculars, but I have one of their scopes and it's great. Definitely a great company.

  3. Yeah, had both of those already. Very jealous of the Flam and whip photos! I seriously think your yard has gotten better stuff than mine by a long shot now. Yellow-green and Red-eyed Vireos... those are both great birds. Plus you've had a few rare warblers too, right?
  4. Welcome to whatbird! Not sure what it is, but I'm pretty sure that's not a bird. Sounds more mammalian to me, and I wouldn't rule out a person messing around.
  5. Year list updates please. Also, pardon the lack of updates/posts lately. Between a summer class, a summer job, and just general summer activities I've been insanely busy.
  6. I'm a bit skeptical... the shoulder is obviously very over exposed and the rarity of Tricolored in that area, I think a Red-winged in bright lighting is much more likely.
  7. Year list updates. I'll post it tomorrow or Tuesday.
  8. Looks like a Brewer's Blackbird to me.
  9. Is there anything wrong with his checklist, though? At least a few of those are irruptive/tough species (redpoll and Purple Finch) so waiting could take a while. Also, it could be a life list for a county or state... not sure what the problem is since he followed proper protocol.
  10. Year list updates.
  11. It's been really hot here lately and two nights were insanely hot with no wind. Perfect weather for bugs. Not a lot of moths, but a ton of leafhoppers and other goodies. Sophonia orientalis: Thyanta pallidovirens And a Glassy-winged Sharpshooter:
  12. FWIW, this is of the Thick-billed subspecies group, which is probably why it looks a bit odd as it is not a subspecies group a lot of people get to see.

  14. I don't see any that strike me as Gray... They all look like Yellows to me.
  15. I like how they even say that they're similar to Cottonmouths and still got the ID wrong.
