  1. In Flight

  2. Unknown Bird

    Do you eBird? If so attach the file to a checklist, label the sighting as passerine species, and then paste link to checklist here.
  3. What did you see today?

    Long-tailed Duck for inland Michigan county is pretty good. Especially when it is incredibly hazy, and rain coming. 3 out of the last 4 years we have had at least one show up.
  4. Gull group

    Looks like all Ring-billed Gulls to me, fellow SW Michigander.
  5. Assuming this is a Canada on the extreme end of the small bill size, based on being essentially same size as the CANG behind it. Tempted to submit them under ssp. canadensis in eBird since they are smaller than the other CANG that were there also. Thanks in advance. _91A0941.jpg by chipperatl2, on Flickr _91A0943.jpg by chipperatl2, on Flickr I believe same bird right of center https://www.flickr.com/gp/47026408@N05/3p69n5
  6. Cackling Goose?

    Where was this at?

  8. What did you see today?

    This leucistic Sandhill Crane had me excited for a little bit today thinking I finally located a Whooping Crane. We get 1000's of Sandhills through here (I counted 1122 last time out at the Cranefest site), and I have had high hopes of a Whooping Crane hooking up with one of the groups. _91A1156.jpg by chipperatl2, on Flickr
  9. Clay-colored Sparrow - SW MI 11/6

    Feel like a newbie lately. Never seen a Swamp sparrow look like that before. The second bird yes, but never like the first bird.
  10. Clay-colored Sparrow - SW MI 11/6

    Whole pic, and I took down some of the exposure on the bird's left side. Never seen a Swamp with a buffy supercilium. Also a Swamp that was nearby. _91A9987.jpg by chipperatl2, on Flickr _91A9989.jpg by chipperatl2, on Flickr
  11. I only got two quick snaps. I don’t see any stripe in the lore. https://flic.kr/p/Z8W6YS
  12. Going through old photos...long shot...

    I’d say Lesser Yellowlegs with the straight bill that isn’t longer than its head.
  13. Huh, I knew there was some color variation on the head, but never noticed it so sharply demarcated before.
  14. Is this Mommy, Daddy and Junior? I've never seen a pattern on a Gadwall head before. _91A0016.jpg by chipperatl2, on Flickr _91A0101.jpg by chipperatl2, on Flickr
  15. Wasn’t sure if could be id’ed as maybe b.c. Interior, but then it doesn’t matter to eBird either as they only have Dusky and Lesser as separate subspecies from moffit and maxima.
