February 20, 2014 Killdeer and Goose?

Posted Friday 21st February 2014 at 14:53 by LifeIsGood2
While in town, I saw a small group of killdeer near a parking lot across from our City Lake. Not too unusual, but I had never taken the time to look at its markings and identifying it.

I will need to spend some time identifying the water fowl at the City Lake because as I flipped though pictures in my field guide etc., I realized that I am not certain if I saw a goose or a swan. This is my main reason for birding right now. I realize that even though birds are around me all of...

Finally the Sao Paulo Marsh Antwren has a proper name!

Posted Tuesday 18th February 2014 at 19:10 by Rick and Elis
There has been a great deal of waiting for a decision to be made about the taxonomic status of the marsh antwren that was found in São Paulo State many years ago. Not least as there was some confusion about who actually discovered the thing; but we will not get into that now.

The Paraná Marsh Antwren Formicivora acutirostris, from which the new species has been distinguished, was originally given its own genus Stymphalornis when it was first discovered, but back in the time when we...

Feb 18th a windy warm up

Posted Tuesday 18th February 2014 at 16:01 by LifeIsGood2
Looks like winter might finally let go of us here in Missouri. I am anxious to see how that changes things as far as bird species. Yesterday, I saw a flock of geese flying overhead and they were flying North! I am thinking that is a good sign for us.

I noticed the black-capped chickadees are back at the feeder but the blue jays keep screaming at them. I am not sure that I want to keep a feeder through warm months. I do have some concern for disease and other negatives of having...

Big Bird in the tree in my front yard 2/17/14

Posted Monday 17th February 2014 at 14:25 by LifeIsGood2
OMG! I missed it! I bird about 4 times bigger than a blue jay- Hawkish sized - landed in a low branch in my front yard! As I was relaxing in my recliner, I happened to noticed movement out of the corner of my eye. I moved the blinds a bit more and there it was. The biggest bird that I have seen this season. It had a white underside and a rust color on its neck, but instead of looking for more details without my glasses, I quickly got up and got my glasses. Did I scare it? NO! So, I decided...
