I don't have old bird photos, I only started photography in September. Although I got this little $20 camera when I was 9 for a trip to the Bahamas, and remember having a photo of an Ani sp. and either an AGPL or a BBPL. AGPL and any Ani species would be lifers but...

I dropped that camera into a river a couple years ago :lol:

There's only one Ani species in the Bahamas (in the whole Caribbean in fact), and that's the Smooth-billed Ani. North of South America Ani identification is easy: mainland = Groove-billed, island (or South Florida) = Smooth-billed.

 

Congrats on the armchair tick! :P

Well actually you can see both of those plus Greater in Costa Rica. You can see SB in Mexico and other parts of Central America as well as SA.

What I MEANT to say:

Okay so I'm done using ebird with mobile chrome. It sucks. So what app should I get? I'm guessing iBird just from what I've heard?

EDIT: I guess there's eBird Mobile now. I forgot that iBird was just an ID help thingy.

Greater has only a handful of records (<10) from Costa Rica -- super rare there. You have to get to the eastern half of Panama before they're a regular species.

You're from SC, so I'm pretty sure you'l freeze :P

Having birded with Jack in cold weather, this is true.

Trust me, I've been in cold weather, I'll be alright.  Won't be birding but I'll probably pass you in the county anyway ;)

Jack will be alright, but he'll complain the whole way through lol.

I know this is irrelevant to birds but it brought a smile to my face  http://www.cartalk.com/content/husband-10

" Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have limited memory and cannot learn new applications quickly.

LOLOL

Gotta love cartalk!

How's that weather North Easterners?

It's pretty nice, no school and snow perfect for a snowball battle with my friends  (I've had five so far today :P)

I also got a lifer today, courtesy of @Astrobirder ;)

Total Blizzard. 

I have about a foot of snow, and will probably get another foot. Fair amount of wind. The whole state in under a state of emergency. 

So, yeah normal winter. :P

House Finches were singing today, despite the storm!

Lucky. The snow here is almost always powdery, due to the South Idahoan desert.
