Okay, this may be a bit labor intensive, but it could also be quite fun. Aim for the following website:
You can set filters, such that you can narrow it to birds near your location. Then you can narrow it further by clicking the audio symbol (speaker), so that...
These long distance photos were taken in February, 2014, at the Six Mile Slough. At the time I had thought it was a yellow-rumped, but now I've noticed an eye line. Possible worm-eating? Other?
I hate to ask, but is there any chance a 'well-meaning' neighbor or lawn care person might have decided to 'tidy up' your porch by removing the nest? Unlike bird people, there are those that think swallows are a nuisance. Sigh.
I saw this Barred Owl today casually ripping fresh leaves off a sprig and for the world it looked like the owl was actually eating them! Has anyone else seen this behavior in owls? Is it common? Or maybe self-medicating? I've never heard of this before! There may have been insects on the...
I apologize to the moderators if this is deemed inappropriate.
These researchers propose to design an affordable GPS data logger that costs less than US$500 to increase effectiveness in measuring the success of CHE release and to foster more raptor ecology research in Indonesia.
They have only...
Seen yesterday at Fort Myers Beach. There were about fifteen large(r) gulls, first or second year. Many seemed a tad (or more) bigger than the adult ring-bills, yet there were zero adult Herring gulls. The only large(r) adult gull was one Lesser Black-backed, who seemed to have no companions...
The bird was seen today in North Cape Coral, Florida. An Ash-throated has been reported as seen in the area multiple times by a number of people lately, however Great-crested would be our norm. I don't want to report the wrong bird.
All birds seen within the last two weeks.
1) Red-tailed Hawk? Seen N. Cape Coral.
2) Spotted Sandpiper? Unfortunately this little bird was being very secretive. Seen in mangroves on Estero Bay.
3 & 4) I know this should be obvious, but I'm drawing a blank. The bird was all puffed up due to a...
My Sibley shows the goldfinch with a pink bill; the bird in 1 & 2 has a bill that looks darker than that. Is that still good?
I was wondering if 1 &2 might be a yellow-throated vireo? (But that would be rare for the area.)
It was extremely overcast and the birds were at a distance. I seriously boosted the light level of the images, just to show any detail at all.
The first three images are of members of a flock of six.
The last photo was of a bird nearby that may or may not have been a flock member.
Seen today in the Estero Bay Preserve, very near a mangrove pond.
I would say it might be a Brown Thrasher, but most of those hide when seen. This bird sat a number of minutes studying me. Also the black jaw line and speckles throw me off. If it is a thrasher, is maybe immature? I don't...
Seen today at Harns Marsh in the grass on the bank. This little bird caught my eye when it tried to run and hide (rather than short distance flight).
Normally I would have thought it was a Savannah Sparrow, but the eye ring and buffy yellow has me hoping for a Grasshopper Sparrow.
If it is a...
