  1. Whatbird's Young Birders!

    Late to the party but I live in Mt Pleasant, which was in totality but went to McClellanville to my friend's farm and camped out there the night before and hung around the farm until the eclipse. Had an additional 30 seconds of viewing time compared to Charleston/Mt Pleasant and got better weather too! Think I made a good decision for only a 30 minute drive.

    Yeah, Bull's Island is good for sure. But, in the summer it is hellish. To get to the beach is several miles round trip, which doesn't sound that bad, but it is fill to the brim with mosquitoes, horseflies, deerflies, and other biting flies, usually 100+ degrees before noon, 90% humidity, plus the burning sunlight makes it pretty awful between May and late September.

    Got back from my roadtrip 2 days ago. Left on the 13th with another YB friend of mine in Charlotte. Covered 14 states and 2 Canadian provinces. Went out to Glacier NP in MT and back. Got 273 species, including lots of yearbirds and 18 lifers: Ring-necked Pheasant, Henslow's Sparrow, Trumpeter Swan, Kirtland's Warbler, Connecticut Warbler, Great Gray Owl, Yellow-bellied Flycatcher, Mourning Warbler, Black-backed Woodpecker, Chestnut-collared Longspur, Baird's Sparrow, Sharp-tailed Grouse, Sprague's Pipit, Boreal Chickadee, Spruce Grouse, White-winged Crossbill, Sagebrush Sparrow, and Whooping Crane. Great and very successful trip. Picture editing starts tomorrow. If you want to view some scenery shots there are some on my personal VSCO at www.vsco.co/jack4rogers/images/1. Later this week I will have a document uploaded with all the birds we heard/saw, mammals, and herps. Pretty amazing trip of a lifetime and looking to do Alaska next summer!

    Well, considering that the Columbia River mouth is on the border of Oregon and Washington, and therefore not north of Seattle, I'd say I do know...
  6. Whatbird's Young Birders!

    You won't see any in Oregon. It's a very debatable species, most in Washington are unclear too. From what I understand, you have to go considerably north of Seattle to even start to get into a pure NOCR range.

    Or maybe you could all just quit ****posting and boasting about stuff nobody cares about. Or actually read what people say.

    Since Utah, like Idaho (as well as all states in the US, except South Dakota), has a graduated licensing provision, you are allowed to drive in Utah so long as you are obeying whatever rules the Idaho learners permit has. You are federally protected under Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations under the USDOT/DHS.
  9. Whatbird's Young Birders!

    Why can't you drive in Utah? It's a federal law that any standard drivers license/permit can be used in any state as I understand.

    Got the film developed. Here's mostly scenery and the scorpion and some shots from the Pima Air museum. https://www.flickr.com/photos/90726323@N05/albums/72157680834887530

    Got back from a trip to Southeast Arizona a few days ago. Just finished editing pictures and they're now on flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/90726323@N05/albums/72157680015736812 Highlights include: Black-capped Gnatcatcher, Elf Owl, Burrowing Owl, Zone-tailed, Gray, and Harris's Hawks, Western Diamondback Rattlesnake, Greater Short-horned Lizard, etc. Totaled 40 World lifers and 43 ABA lifers. Only got 112 species and dipped on 2 of my biggest targets (Red-faced Warbler and Trogon) but oh well, it was a pretty great trip! Also brought my 35mm film Camera (Nikon 6006) and a 50mm lens and shot 4 rolls, should finish having it developed sometime today. Might upload some pictures on flickr later this weekend idk.

    Trust me, I've been in cold weather, I'll be alright. Won't be birding but I'll probably pass you in the county anyway
