  1. Whatbird's Young Birders!

    A few more weeks and that won't be an issue for me! I've missed so many birds that way
  2. Whatbird's Young Birders!

  3. I guess it was the bunch that I've gotten in the car on various roadtrips (Mississippi Kite, Wood Stork, RTHA when I started out, etc.)

    One more month...
  5. Whatbird's Young Birders!

    It happened to me recently involving a Lark Sparrow that was in a parking lot 20 minutes away... They said I just went to Charleston so lay off the birding for a bit (NEVER)
  6. Recent bug sightings

    Gallinipper, a giant Mosquito. Never seen one up here in NY, but I saw one in Charleston, SC on my eclipse trip. Apparently when they bite it feels like being stabbed
  7. Several different bugs on a milkweed family plant

    Not a Beetle, but rather a Lacewing
  8. What are the Best Birding Places in the USA?

    If you can expand to Canada, here's what I think are great spots: Alaska (especially the Nome area and the Bering Sea islands) Hawaii (Many, many, many endemics, many more countable exotics) Monterrey Bay, CA (Albatrosses!!) Southern California (just plain species rich) SE Arizona (especially the Madrean Sky Islands where there are TROGONS) Texas/Mexican border (the Lower Rio Grande Valley has many Neotropical birds, Big Bend has a bunch more including Colima Warblers and the Edwards Plateau region by San Antonio has Golden-cheeked Warblers and Black-capped Vireos) South Florida (the Everglades host many strange birds, the Keys have many Caribbean birds, and the coast from Palm Beach to Miami gets a lot of Bahamian vagrants each year) North Carolina far off the the OBX (many interesting Seabirds) Newfoundland (European vagrants, mostly in the winter
  9. Wild Turkey. A hen and several of her polts walked through my elementary school grounds and made a scene
  10. Any Lifers?

    4 in Charleston this weekend! Mississippi Kite Painted Bunting Wood Stork Eurasian Collared-Dove
  11. You might be a birder...

    If you plan an eclipse trip to go along with birding

    It only gets really dark in the 100% zone, and that's where it looks amazing
