  1. Ok so I live in Central Texas, Round Rock to be exact, I live near a pond maybe 300 yds x 300 yds surrounded by brush and trees, and right next to this marvelous, thriving pond is a densely populated neighborhood which I reside. For 3 days straight now Ive been hearing Screeching Owls here and there and thats no biggie, but one sound drowns all the night life away, its a strobing sound that is TO-A-TEE like an electronic car alarm, BUT ITS NOT, ITS AN ANIMAL. It started when one day a thunderstorm rolled in and I just thought the thunder kicked off a car alarm but its been happening around 1-4 AM every night for 3 days, Ive decided to go out and look for it and its quite a deffining* sound. Super loud and obnoxious and comes from somewhere in the ponds banks where theres trees and brush, keep in mind my house is just about a quarter mile from the pond and it sounds like its about 2 houses down, thats how loud it is. It strobes it sounds anywhere from 5 seconds all the way up to 3 minutes with no stop. Ive attached a small snippet of the sound, the camera picks it up well amidst the white noise in my room, please someone take a listen and identify it, Ive scrounged the internet and still cant find an answer! IT DRIVES ME NUTS HELPPP!!! 1235BC7E-3E00-4687-AAE7-F1717E0E0BE9.mp4

    Car Alarm Bird?

    I hear a bird call often in the afternoon and I can’t seem to identify it. It is two notes and sounds amazingly like an electronic alarm but I can tell it is some sort of bird making the noise. It is always two sudden, short sounds, the bird seems to only call once; it is not a long song or warbling. It always sounds like “Woo-wee Woo-wee”. With a rise in pitch at the end of each “wee”. It is quite loud and echoes through my court. It reminds me of a Cardinal’s “voice” but I have never heard a Cardinal make such a noise. I thought it could possibly be a Mockingbird mimicking the sound of an alarm? It has baffled me so far. It’s almost impossible for me to record it as the bird only does its quick call and then is silent and I usually only hear it once or twice in a day. I started hearing it in April, never heard it in the winter so it’s possible it does not live in this area during the winter months. I live in Southwestern Ontario, Canada.
  3. Greetings guys. My friends and I were arguing about this one bird, and none of us could figure out what is it. It looks like a pheasant but it's not. Also it's pretty big sized, surprisingly. Does any of you know what it might be (the brownish one)?
  4. 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. My initial thoughts were Yellow Warbler and White Crown Sparrow, but after looking closer at my shots I started to doubt. Please help me identify these beauties Here are the cropped pics: Thank you

    Help me ID

    I was birding at the Fish Hatchery near the Northern Railroad Ponds in South Cle Elum, WA - July 20th 2017 - 9am. Please help me ID this bird, 2 photos attached.
  8. I have been hearing this bird for a while now, outside my house, most active every morning since the beginning of spring. It sounds like a very clear LOUD human whistle. It will make a low pitch singular whistle and a high pitch by themselves and it will also do a three note whistle which it repeats twice occasionally. Its driving me crazy trying to figure out what it can be! I live in Northern NJ. Thanks! (sorry there are like 5 other birds chirping in this recording. Best I could get! I recommend using headphones because the recording is soft ) New Recording 5.m4a.m4a
  9. 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
  10. I live in Ontario Canada and a friend of mine sent me this photo from the park it was around some ducks and geese he thinks it is a Franken duck, I myself live in the country just outside and have seen Falcons, Hawks, Turkey vultures and the like many times before but this one didn't fit the exact descriptions that I've seen. I wasn't sure if it was a specific type of species or maybe a hybrid or perhaps just a vulture that may have had something of a deformity at birth or got something of a virus or parasite in the year or even if this was a younger one not yet fully coloured up. Your thoughts and answers would be much appreciated.

    Bird of Western Michigan

    There is a bird that I heard today and I don't know exactly what it is. I live in Western Michigan and that's where I heard it. It has a 3 note call where all three notes are of the same pitch. It has a pitch of medium to high pitch and is very loud. After it stopped I heard of a different call of a song bird that flew overhead but I didn't exactly get a good look. I didn't think much of it until it started doing the same call again. So I think it may be a song bird of some sort. I just can't figure out what it is and would like to know what it is. I can't record it sadly because this was the first time I've ever heard it and may be the last. I hope there is enough information to deduce what bird it could be. Thanks!
  12. Saw this in the backyard half an hour ago, Chester county, PA. I thought I am seeing a junco, but I think I was wrong.

  14. Hello! Very curious about this fellow. Walked outside the front door, locked it and turned around to see this bird sitting on the porch. He was not startled by my presence. I even got very close, knelt down and looked him in the eye. I even poked him. I stared at him for a few minutes before he flew to another part of the porch. I called my father over to look and at when he did, the bird flew away. I live in new York by the nassau county/ long island border. Feeling like this may be a pet bird. He also had a white breast and belly . Please help me identify him! Thank you!
  15. Hello! Last month I was visiting Sweden on the southeastern coast and we were touring Kalmar Castle. In one of the rooms a bird swooped near my friend's head in an attempt to fly out and it collided with the glass. The poor thing was stunned, but I knew it would be fine. I took the opportunity to get it outside and gently picked it up. It did come to, but it had difficulty flying. I doubted it had an injured wing and I picked it up again. I was surprised how calm it was in letting me pick it up again being that it was fully conscious. So I held it in the palm of my hand and put it up as high as I could. I suspected it was the type of bird incapable of taking off from the ground. Once high enough it flew away with no problem. However, I have no idea as to the breed.
  16. Hi, bird lovers, I have recently adopted a bird that is found by my mother's friend. This bird is in a daze and does not response to it surrounding and seems to be extremely hungry when we fed it some seeds belonging to our parakeet. I would like to know its breed so as to provided it with the proper diet. It was found in the east side of Singapore, tropical environment and summer throughout the years. Its photo is as attached. Thank in Advance
  17. Anyone recognize this bird? It is attacking my window! I appreciate any help. Regards.
  18. This poor thing hit my window yesterday afternoon and I'd like to know what it is so I know what I can feed it until the poor thing gets better. I live in Saskatchewan too so I'm in Canada just incase that information is relevant.
  19. I took this picture of an unknown bird in a parking lot in south east Florida. I can't identify it. Could it be a loon that is molting? Please help.

  21. Please help identify this large bird I spotted this morning. This photo was taken on 11/12/13 in Las Vegas Nevada USA. The bird was hopping around the branches of the tree about 7-8ft up don't know if it can really fly to far or is injured as it has been in the tree for hours. The bird is quite large about the size of a small chicken? The bird was in a backyard but it was adjacent to a natural desert scrub area. I have never seen a bird like this here before
  22. I have seen this pair come in every year for 5 years about this same time to the South East Florida region. The picture attached was taken Sept. 26 2013 I have been unable to determine what these wonderful birds are. My second Attachment is the pair in flight. The interesting part is they were spooked by a helicopter. They heard it coming from a distance and took off as it went over their heads. I mention this only because this area is constantly being buzzed by helicopters and I have never seen this reaction by birds before. I am wondering if they my not be from this region. Thanks South King Fisher
  23. This bird was seen in my backyard in Inverness, Florida Sept. 7, 2013 and I have not been able to identify it. It appears to be some type of woodpecker and is about the same size as the red bellied woodpeckers we have here. Any help would be appreciated.
