  1. Whatbird's Young Birders!

    Yeah, I have it on PS4
  2. Your birding equipment

    What I bring into the field: Nikon prostaff 10x42 binoculars Canon EOS Rebel t2i camera with the IS 70-300mm lens iPhone 7 Other stuff: my bus stop is a library so I’ve checked out a bunch of photography books/field guides
  3. I had county lifer herring Gull for the next county over yesterday which was neat
  4. Ebird Unusual Checklists/Hotspots

    I’ve heard of that owl, lots of people in Virginia are going to chase it. Fortunately for me, instead of driving halfway across the state for that bird, another snowy owl showed up at the airport five miles from my house!
  5. Share your best photo of the day!

    It seems like these guys are always in motion
  6. Whatbird's Young Birders!

    Definitely. I hear them mimicking RS Hawks, the local avian predator, to clear food sources all the time
  7. Could your dad not take binoculars instead? They’re portable, need no accessories like tripods, and it’s much harder to use a scope on, for instance, passerines flitting around, than it is a scope.
  8. Owl?

    I'm almost certain this is an adult Northern Goshawk. Proportions and the solid white appearance of the underparts points to a Gos. It's definitely not an owl

    Hey! It's been a while since I've been on here. Yesterday I chased my first lifer in almost two months, a Harris's Sparrow, in MD, and successfully pished it out onto an exposed branch, refinding it for the other birders there! I also got a Lark Sparrow in D.C., not a lifer but a nice D.C. bird. Today I visited my old patch after almost a month of absence, and found 13 Wilson's snipe, an adult bald eagle, and a female Rusty Blackbird. Tomorrow I'll be in NJ at my cousins house in NJ, where I hope to get lifers Fox Sparrow and American Tree Sparrow. I'll also be trying for the Northern Shrike that's been seen at Great Swamp NWR, only a little ways north of them!
  10. Gooper's

    I support the ID of Cooper's. Another thing to note is that the secondaries don't bulge out as much as I'd expect on a Gos.
  11. is this a gull?

    that first photograph gives me a storm-petrel/petrel feel
  12. Ebird Unusual Checklists/Hotspots

    Many good birders are notorious for captioning birds, especially uncommon ones, with random letters or other characters which I can only assume are some sort of code only the elite know of. I'm currently working on cracking these codes, one of which seems to be consistently used by Ned Brinkley

    Another one from NJ, this time from Lord Stirling Park. This photo was taken at a farm while my cousin was horse riding. The birding never stops.
