  1. https://imgur.com/a/oHwlA This guy. I couldn't figure out the picture, so I just included a link to a photo of the bird. I saw this little birdie at Parrot Mountain in Pigeon Forge , TN. (A very beautiful place, highly recommend a visit). Ever since then, I have been in love, but never knew what this bird was. It has a resemblance to a Maximilian Pionus, but I'm not sure. Thanks for any help!
  2. Hello Members, I do not know much about bird identification, but I do appreciate beautiful animals of all species...especially in their native environment(s). I researched various bird ID groups and found this one to be the most straight-forward and knowledgeable, so I joined with hopes that someone smarter than I on the subject, could possibly help to identify a particular bird I watched (and was wowed by), at close range, over the course of about an hour. Thanks in advance to anyone who has a few minutes to spend reading this, and any additional info/intel you could share. I was in my elevated (10') hunting blind, this past Saturday Morning (12/30/17), in the thick piney woods of NE TX (Crockett, TX / Houston County / 75835 Zip Code) and watched this Wodpecker move from tree to tree (about 5 different trees in total, spending about 20 minutes at each tree). I first heard him or her and wondered if it was even a woodpecker at all - on account the "strikes" I was hearing seemed to be much louder, stronger, slower in succession, and with longer pauses in-between - compared to any otger woodpeckers I'd ever known, across my 20+ years of being an avid outdoorsman. When I first laid eyes on him/her, I was absolutely blown away by the size of this bird. By far the largest woodpecker I've ever seen...bigger than any Crow (and there are a lot of Crows in East TX, so I've seen my share of those for sure). While he/she was at the first tree (about 20 yards away, 20'above my vantage point, and 30' feom the ground) - I was able to get several few pics and a 1 minute video of the bird, which I'll upload here for your review. I just wish they (pics/vid) were of better quality, so I'm hoping they can still help. At each tree, he/she would peck at the main trunk and the branches as well...and did not seem to discriminate between trees that were dead vs. alive. He/she did stick to pine trees though, leaving the oak's and cedar's alone. As he/she was flying from tree to tree, I noticed that the underside of its wings were white. When I got home, I Googled the bird and was unable to decifer between the Pileated vs. Ivory-Billed variety of Woodpecker, and couldnt ID the bird's sex either. I know to always take Google with a grain of salt, which is why I'm here, but going solely from what I read on Google...Google "told" me that the Pileated is smaller than a Crow - the one I saw was much larger than any Crow. However, I'm not sure if the Ivory-Billed would be any larger than a Pileated (or not)? Google also "said" the Pileated has a shorter neck than the Ivory-Billed - the bird I saw had a very long neck, a characteristic that stood out to me right, off the bat - and even moreso after looking at the pics/video again. I hope I wasn't rambling...I just wanted to share any/all details I could recall. Aiming to let you (the experts) decide which were helpful, vs. not. The Video and 2 Pictures can be found here (please let me know if/of any issues Re: trying to access).... Folder: 1 Video & 2 Pictures Thank you all, once again. Gratefully, Lance

  4. Hi all, I was wondering if anyone had any ideas what was the best small, compact, light, cheap-ish, birding scope for my Dad who likes to bird on business and often takes a scope. (then he has to check a bag) Any ideas would be great! Thanks in advance!

  8. Hello, I have spotted two birds at the and of August in at Bownman Bay Whidbey Island, Washington State. Some sort of Warbler and some sort of Sparrow.

  19. What species of seagulls is this? (Picture taken near Quebec/New-Brunswick, in Canada) Male/female? Feel free to say any other specification you'd like to say
  20. Location: Long Island New York, June 1st. Might be a real visitor, as none of us have heard this call in our 50-something years here. The mp3 attached is my whistle, carefully matching the exact tone and cadence of what we heard over 20 minutes. it moved around us from tree-to-tree there were dozens of other very loud birds talking, so a real recording wouldn't tell you which one we are curious about. This same call was heard 50 times over 20 minutes. The bird was never in site. Never heard since. Thank you in advance. Unknown bird.mp3
  21. Help with Emails

    WhatBird sends me on average 200 emails a day and it gets tedious deleting them every day. Is there any way I can delete my account permanently or disable this onslaught of emails?
  22. Long beak, brown/tanish, white spots.
  23. Please help identify this bird that my mom has been seeing in the heart of Houston for a few weeks. It looks like a tropical straggler that has made its way here or some sort of captive bird that was released. It makes a consistent Chee chee chee call and this is the only thing she has heard it do. Acts like a fly catcher, but may be eating seeds too. What could it be???? Thanks

  25. Warbler ID

    Observed this warbler briefly in a mixed flock on the Blue Ridge Parkway in central Virginia (approximately mile post 30) on August 28th, 2016. My first impression was Pine, but again looks were brief and I wasn't comfortable calling it with certainty. I was only able to obtain these two photos showing the face and side profile separately through the foliage (low canopy level): https://www.dropbox.com/s/fitedywfsxxrm4l/DSCN0868.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/v6iid17qp23epwx/DSCN0869.jpg?dl=0 I would appreciate anyone's opinion on the ID of this warbler. Thanks!
