  1. Please Identify

    Awesome - This is now my 31st ID! I concur, as internet pictures of Buffelhead Ducks match some in the same lake that I saw (much clearer than the picture that I posted) flying around. Thanks

    Thanks for all of the replies. The pics probably aren't of the same birds. I was doing the best I could with my iPhone as they were flying overhead and posted the ones that looked best when enlarged.

    I figured out that much, but what kind? I suspected ring-billed, but want the experienced birders here to confirm or correct.

  6. Dropbox backup no longer working

    I emailed support but their reply didn't make sense. They gave instructions on how to move files from dropbox to iCloud, but no way to back up what is on the phone. I replied, but haven't heard back from them yet. Here is their initial reply to me which doesn't answer the question at all: Name removed Oct 6, 11:47 MST Hi Mark, We had to switch to iCloud because Dropbox changed the way there system worked so we no longer could use it. I have attached the article from our site about how to move your data over from dropbox to iCloud: https://help.ibird.com/hc/en-us/articles/115007450248-My-Apple-Favorites-Disappeared-after-I-Updated Sometimes the species will show up as their number in our system and not their name, so I have also attached the article with the spreadsheet that has the specie's corresponding name with their number: https://help.ibird.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000654052-Migrating-Favorites-and-Notes Thank you for using the iBird app, and please let me know if I can be of any additional assistance, iBird Support The first article isn't on point at all since there is no apps folder in my dropbox directory and it didn't answer my initial question The iBird journal backup files in dropbox get saved with filenames such as iBird Journal Backup 4-3-17.journal. These are cool as the jpg files that I attach to my sightings are part of the embedded database. I was able to get around the issue with my iPhone. I chose the backup to email function and used Apple's "Maildrop" system to send and receive the large file. If you have an iPhone, this will work, as long as your database is <5 GIG. If you have a different phone and a database <25 Meg, a normal email will work, otherwise you can probably use a Google Drive link.
  7. The problem is with iBird Journal. I've backed up to dropbox before, but it is now failing. Please see the screenshot of the error message. The internet connection on the phone is fine. I logged out of dropbox and back in, but this doesn't help. iPhone 7 Plus IOS 11.0.1 Please advise. Thanks

    OK - Thanks guys. I gave myself credit. My 30th ID. Getting there slowly.

    Thanks - I need a Bald Eagle ID, but don't want to take credit unless I am sure. What other birds (that are present in that area) share the characteristics of the white head and tail that is clearly present with my find?

    These were taken at a far distance. I zoomed in on one of them, but it still isn’t a great batch. I’m hoping somebody can identify this bird. Taken Thursday in Swan Lake, N.Y. Thanks.
  12. I've been visiting upstate N.Y. (The Monticello/Swan Lake/Liberty area since April, and until this weekend, have seen tons of Canada Geese. This weekend, I hardly saw any. I didn't see any Friday or Saturday and thought they had all gone, but then I heard some this morning and later in the day saw a flock flying. Although is is still technically summer, the weather turns colder must faster up in the mountains which makes an early migration feasible. Where have they all gone and why has this one flock remained? Will some Canada Geese stay for the winter, or are these just late to leave the party?

    Thanks for the quick replies. I was excited as I spotted these, as I know I hadn't see them before. They weren't at all human or noise shy. The photo isn't zoomed too much - I got pretty close on my boat with my loud outboard motor.

  15. Two IDs needed

    Thanks for the replies. This Gull is a new ID for me. I forgot to initially quote. Sorry for the double-post.
