  1. Baby Cardinals Blown Out Of Nest

    Yes, Mother Nature can be really harsh! It's a lesson for the mama cardinal, though. Maybe she'll build her nest more securely or on a better spot next time.
  2. Baby Cardinals Blown Out Of Nest

    You did well getting the live baby back in the nest. As for the dead one, the mama cardinal should handle it.

  4. No matter what I did, I could not get a look at this bird. Hiding in the reeds, every time I passed by over a 30 minute time span, the calls were always the same. Crank the sound, it was high pitched. I'm assuming one of the sparrows. I know this is a hard one, I'm hoping someone recognizes the pattern, because it was consistent. Second bird, at dusk. It's the faint bird you hear at 2, 6, 11, 17, 21, 26, and 30. I feel like I should know what this one is.

    Appears to be an Eastern Phoebe.

    Holy cow, agreed! (Canal trail?)
  7. Any Lifers?

    This isn't a lifer lifer, because I remember seeing one in Texas many moons ago, but that was before I was a birder. So this was my first time to get one of these as a birder, and it's on the rare side for this area, to boot! (Sorry, HamRHead, good luck this evening!) Black-necked Stilt by midgetinvasion, on Flickr

    With that tail pattern, I believe this is a Broad-winged, actually.

    Man, I need ALL of those!
  10. Things I've Learned in the Field

    Osprey will hunt in ocean waves. We were in Virginia Beach once and watched multiple Osprey pulling some sort of needlefish out of the surf over and over again.
  11. Any Lifers?

    Not nearly as good of a picture as HamRHead, because I couldn't get close to her, but. . . Common Goldeneye by midgetinvasion, on Flickr
  12. Any Lifers?

    Cool! That kittiwake, living his best life, being fed by tourists, lol. I've heard Clappers lots of times (including Saturday near Tybee), but have never been able to catch one with the camera.
  13. Warbler

    Well dang. Wonder what was up with the white wing patches then. They were there no matter the lighting, and were on both sides of the bird.
  14. Warbler

    Two days ago, here in Augusta, GA. The white patch on the wings was on both sides, which led to me Black-throated Blue female originally, but I don't think that's it. The bird had a yellow wash underneath, and the white patch isn't really in the right spot. I couldn't ever get a really good look. One shot with the camera, the other with my phone through the binoculars. Unknown Warbler 2 by midgetinvasion, on Flickr Unknown Warbler 1 by midgetinvasion, on Flickr
