    Which tour / location for puffins?

    Seeing puffins is a dream of mine (I failed to see any in Scotland and Norway!). I'm hoping to go to Maine in July, but have no idea how to find the best tours / locations. I know the one tour that actually lands on the island and watches them through a blind is already all booked up for 2021...

    Whose poop is this? Dallas, TX, today

    Oh, thanks for the suggestions! After googling pictures of poop, possum seems very promising.

Between 7 p.m. and 11:30 a.m. someone left this ENORMOUS (thumb-sized) turd in the feeder and I am bewildered. Who could have left this? The balcony is not accessible to...

    Baby bird advice in Mississippi

    My friend in Mississippi says she found a baby bird on the ground. It looks to me like some sort of thrush, hermit thrush? She can't see any obvious nests nearby that look like it may have come from. Any advice on what to do? there are no wildlife rescue organizations near her. She hasn't seen...

    Hi there! I'll be in Omaha for a wedding the weekend of Sept 28, and was thinking of going a little early and getting some fall migration birding in beforehand.

    which wren in San Pancho, Mexico (near Puerto Vallarta)?

    Hi everyone, I can't figure out which wren this is in the Puerto Vallarta area because his head is so stripey. Is it a juvenile? Of course he's sitting vertically, hehe, but I rotated it for ease of ID. Oh, just realized he's a creeper. oops. But which one? Thanks, S.

    Difference between female black-capped and blue-gray gnatcatcher in Puerto Vallarta?

    Ah, i just noticed on eBird that the black-capped is rare in this area, so I guess it's the blue-gray. I still wonder how one could tell.
