    Yup! That's a wood thrush. Aren't their voices beautiful? Almost magical sounding.

    Abandoned Bluebird Eggs

    It might be worth giving them a call. They could know how you should proceed or be able to point you in the right direction. And if they may make an exception if they have the knowlege of how to care for bluebirds.

    I found a bird missing an eye, please help

    I'd try to take it to a wildlife rehab center if you can. They'll be able to treat the injury and determine whether the bird can be returned to the wild.

    Pigeons...Apparently Not Often Found in Cities🤣

    Nope! Rock pigeon without the feral after it doesn't even appear on my checklist options. Ebird is just completely out of touch with birds in the area I guess.

    Pigeons...Apparently Not Often Found in Cities🤣

    I live in a city in the US. Like in many cities, rock pigeons are incredibly common. If you spend 5 minutes outside and don't see them, you're probably looking in the wrong direction. Doesn't matter the time of year; they're there. Anyway, I went to a hotspot I've been to before. Pigeons are...

    Egret Species--John Heinz Wildlife Refuge, Philadelphia, PA

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help me identify this species of egret. Unfortunately, the pics aren't great, but I did get a look at some other features. It's a small egret. It looked much smaller than a great egret, and it had a black beak and yellow legs. Not black legs and yellow feet...

    Canada Geese (I think) with a broken wing?

    Like the others have said, it is a canada goose, and it does seem to have a wing injury. Any update? I just wanted to add some hope. Hopefully the animal rescue center was able to help the goose, but if not, depending on the area, it might still be able to live a decent life. There are a lot...
