  1. Whatbird's Young Birders!

    Wow, we have so much in common! You should ask @Melierax for an invite, I think she's the only one who can do it. We'd love to have you in the chat!
  2. Whatbird's Young Birders!

    They seem like awesome birds! I think you might be able to see them in SE Minnesota if you check ebird and the local listserv for them. Do you know what discord is? Lots of birders on here are in a group chat on discord, it's really fun! Would you like an invite to the chat?
  3. Whatbird's Young Birders!

    Hey Matt! Welcome to whatbird! I'm a 14 year old young birder from Northern VA. How old are you? Wow, I don't know any young birders from Minnesota. All I really know about that place is the Sax-zim Bog, which looks like an awesome place to bird! Anyway, I hope you enjoy the forum!
  4. TERNS!!!

    1. Forster's 2. Royal 3. Common 4. Looks like Sandwich 5. Sandwich 6. Least 7. Least
  5. You might be a birder...

    You might be a birder if you plan family vacations strategically based on what birds are there at a given time of year (for example I "just happen" to be visiting my cousins in somerset, NJ, in January which is when lots of rarities frequently turn up there )
  6. I got chat easily back in June, now I'm starting to see them everywhere But the Vireo.... don't even get me started on that. 100% my worst nemesis. Other birds I really should have by now but am missing are: Yellow-throated Vireo Yellow-throated Warbler Veery Seaside Sparrow Marsh Wren Least Bittern White-rumped Sandpiper Marbled Godwit Birds that I missed last winter, but will be big targets for the coming winter: Redhead White-winged Scoter Fox Sparrow Common Goldeneye Ross's Goose
  7. Terns n' Gulls

    That one is a royal Tern in breeding plumage
  8. Terns n' Gulls

    1. From what I can tell there are only laughing and ring Billed gulls 2. I see royals, common/forsters terns, and a couple good candidates for Sandwich Tern The lone Tern is a royal Tern
  9. Don't you hate it when. . .

    Reviving this thread! I went to Pea Island NWR just for one bird - a would-be-lifer Marbled Godwit. I looked just about everywhere they were being recently seen, but couldn't seem to find one. There was just one last trail to visit before I called it a day. Of course, a couple hundred feet down into this trail, I came upon a large marshy area. In this large marshy area was a lone shorebird, far out in the distance. I could hardly get a look at it with binoculars, and my 300mm camera lens could barely capture photos of it. I was considering wading out into the large field separating me from the possible godwit. That's when I realized the field started off with a thick layer of pure thorn bushes, and was followed by a pond covered in reeds that looked to be quite deep. And covering this field was a swarm of mosquitoes and biting greenhead flies. I was only wearing shorts and sneakers. Not even a lifer is worth what would've happened to me if I walked into that field I'm almost certain it was my lifer Marbled Godwit, but it was just too distant to make a sure identification.

    This isn't looking good for session two... at least now we know where not to look for them You did get UPSA though, right? I think that was a camp first, awesome bird!
  11. Marsh Birds

    1. I'd say Pectoral 2. Yup, Hooded Merganser 3. Pass 4. I don't think it's IDable from this shot, looks to be a flycatcher of some sort. My best guess would be Eastern Wood-Peewee
  12. Snake & Turtle

    Alright, thanks for the help! The watersnake is a lifer!

  14. LOL!

  15. Some Stuff from the OBX, NC

    Thanks! Apparently the photo editing feature on Flickr is down, so I'm trying to find another website to use for a crop. Also, Im pretty sure eastern willets are overall darker and spottier than the paler and I think Longer Billed western willets.
