    Bonaparte's Gulls in Pine Point, Maine, USA

    I know they're not that rare but if anyone living near Maine is interested I spotted at least 12 Bonaparte's Gulls around 8:30 at Pine Point Beach, Maine. This was about a week or so ago, so I'm not sure if they're gone now, but if you live close to that beach and are interested I recommend...

    What did you see in your binoculars today?

    I saw quite a bit of birds today... Most interesting was probably a group of pileated woodpeckers or a great blue heron... i see herons all the time, but not in my yard for two or three years, and that was the first year one had visited. i also saw my first northern waterthrush. i also see...

    Pileated Woodpeckers - Age and Gender identification

    Pileated Woodpeckers, the largest woodpeckers (if the Ivory-Billed Woodpecker is extinct, as it most likely is) are striking and unmistakable birds native to North America. There are a few details that help you figure out what the age or gender of the bird is. I will be using photos to help...

    Blue Jay with no head feathers

    what should i use to clean it? i imagine clorox might not be great for them, should i just rinse it in water and soap?

    Blue Jay with no head feathers

    I recently have been continuously seeing a blue jay with no head feathers... I'm not sure if it has to do with molt, but i also know that certain bird diseases have been spreading recently. it also had a rather weak tone of voice, but it could just be developing. another thing i noticed was a...

    I finally did it

    Two Pileated Woodpeckers, both of which appear to be less mature than the ones I have been seeing! This is exciting for two reasons- there are more around my area than I thought, and I finally got a good photo of not just one, but two- A GOOD ONE.

    Spot the difference in this blurry photo!

    This blurry photo of two Pileated Woodpeckers I took is great for testing - can you tell the difference between male and female? Tell me which one is on which side, and how you can tell the difference!

    Blurry photo of two Pileated Woodpeckers

    I finally did two things- One, I got a... eh, I got an OKAY photo of two Pileated Woodpeckers. And, there, I got to see TWO of them at once! I had to fiddle with the sharpness so you could tell what it was... I was behind a screen window, and my dog was barking at the same time... So this was...

    Comment by 'WoodpeckerMaster' in media 'Barn Owl'

    a beautiful species and beautiful photo, rob! barn owls, like pretty much all owls, have special feathers that make them quiet while flying. this helps them quietly catch mice, and also spook many birders! they are shy and rarely fly near humans, but when they swoop into vision, almost anyone...
