  1. Looks like it.
  2. flickr if you are wanting a photo site. eBird will record your sightings, and you can also upload pictures to your checklists.
  3. I really need to get a different lens than my 400mm if I am going to start shooting these guys. Silver-spotted Skipper-2.jpg by chipperatl2, on Flickr
  4. I know these are common ones, but I've only just now started to pay attention to them. Thanks for the help.

  5. Stay away from zooms! I am not happy with mine at all. My minimum focus distance is 25 feet.
  6. One way or another I figure I am going to get another County Lifer. Found an old photo from 2014 I was taking of a rare LBBG, and found an Iceland Gull in the picture. The other option, is about 6 months after that I had another (same?) Gull that the reviewers had me submit as Thayer's/Iceland. With the lumping I figure that can be submitted as Iceland Gull now for a 1st County record.
  7. Thanks. I have no idea how I missed this bird the first time, other than there was a LBBG there I was focused on.
  8. I think with the Thayer's/Iceland lump my "/" bird will get changed eventually, but looking back through some pics to update my checklist pictures from flickr to eBird I found this bird. Not sure how I didn't notice it before. Thanks for thoughts. Right side lower 691A6883.jpg by chipperatl2, on Flickr 691A6879.jpg by chipperatl2, on Flickr 691A6878.jpg by chipperatl2, on Flickr
  9. For Michigan it looks like Ruffed Grouse.

  11. Saw ABA blog had a summary of the changes. Cassia Crossbill split from Red Crossbill Thayer's Gull now subspecies of Iceland Gull Looks like other changes, ABA related, are name changes, new families and sequences.
  12. I initially thought Northern Pearly-eye also, but I didn't see any "pearliness" in the pic, so I moved to something else. I thought maybe the color was off a little for Eyed Brown, but wasn't sure if it was my pics or the ones on the app.
  13. I think I have the first two, although I'm learning that these guys are harder than birds to ID. Thanks in advance for the help.

Untitled by chipperatl2, on Flickr Untitled by chipperatl2, on Flickr Not sure what this is. Not happy with the Butterfly app I have. I need to get a good field guide. 691A1612-2.jpg by chipperatl2, on Flickr
