  1. Purple Sandpiper?

    I see orange legs, and the otherwise appearance looks good, too.
  2. hawk

    I'd call that a merlin.
  3. Green Wing Teal - Bold Orange Bar

    Yeah, whatever it is wraps all the way around the back of the head, and may be a complete circle, as the bird is holding its mouth open in both pics. Poor bird.
  4. Green Wing Teal - Bold Orange Bar

    If you look closely, whatever it is, is displacing feathers. It's got something in its head.
  5. For the last bird, my Peterson's shows that a first fall female doesn't have the wing spot. Edit-clarifying that I agree with Black-throated Blue, just explaining the lack of wing spot.
  6. Who likes blurry, far away duckies?

    This was the Merry Brothers Brickyard Ponds, which if you've never been, are just a few miles down the road from Phinizy Swamp. There's also been the Short-eared Owl at the airport right there, but I didn't see him when I tried yesterday.
  7. I just KNOW someone does. Lol. I did not have a great birding day, the birds insisted on being in the sun no matter where I went. These are actually some of the better shots, believe it or not. Anyway, interested in the ones with the reddish heads. Do I have Redheads, Canvasbacks, or ideally.. . both? Also, if you see anything else interesting I might be overlooking, speak up.

  8. Is this a Carolina Chickadee's call?

    Sounds like a Tufted Titmouse, actually. The two seem to always be in close proximity to each other.
  9. Refilling bird feeders, day or night?

    We refill during the day. It spooks the birds off for all of 5 minutes. Around here, filling at night is just asking for other visitors. I had to chase a possum off the thistle sock the other night. Little turd was trying to rip it open!
  10. duck - Gainesville, FL

    It's sure shaped like a teal. . .
  11. Mystery bird at my feeder

    I think we can all agree on what this is. . . . . .it's a bird.
  12. Anybody have an idea what this is?

    It just takes out the step of having to click "search", then type in what you want to look for. It started on platforms like Twitter. If you tagged your tweet, then it could be grouped with other people tweeting about the same thing.
  13. Adding to the cacophony of scaups

    Good deal. I saw most of them as Lesser, but was hoping there were some Greaters in there. (I already had Lessers for this year, but not Greater) Weird they seemed to be mostly Lessers, as this was the ocean, and I usually see Greater in the actual ocean. I think in some of my other pictures there are more Greater, but I'll not make everyone go through looking at them all.
  14. Juvenile Cormorant?

    Agreed. Looks good for a young Double-crested Cormorant.
  15. Anybody have an idea what this is?

    They make for a quick search function. It doesn't work too well here on the board, because most people aren't using them yet. Once they do, then how it works, it you click on one of the tags, and it immediately pulls up all the posts tagged with that same word. It only works if the posts are tagged, though.
