    ABA Blog on Women Birders and "The Field Glass ceiling"

    So if I'm reading you right Chosun, African Americans are good at jumping, dancing and rap music. I guess this is why Fugl admires your insights so much. In my priggish world racism and sexism isn't held in such high regard - each to their own though...

    ABA Blog on Women Birders and "The Field Glass ceiling"

    Ummm I'm not from CT - but anyway I'm guessing you don't like to let facts to get in the way of your digs http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_U.S._states_by_educational_attainment I would suggest you read the actual post (which is written by a woman and contains the thoughts of women birders)...

    ABA Blog on Women Birders and "The Field Glass ceiling"

    @Fugl - Spot on - just like there's no racism in America now we have an African American president (is there an eye roll emoticon on here?). Don't you think the fact that most all of the upper level female birders thinks it exists as an issue outweighs your believing it's a joke. I guess if you...

    Is anyone Bigbying this year?

    Hey Brian, Nice to read about your exploits on the bike birdrace. You are certainly expending more energy with your BGBY than I am as I am merely wandering the local environs looking for birds. Still just tallied my numbers and am now up to 163 on the year. Luke

    Birds in Song Titles

    Is anyone Bigbying this year?

    Finally broke 100 species for the year. You can tell I am not trying that hard! Still a nice way to make it to 100: American White Pelican, Sandhill Crane and Northern Goshawk. All not bad for NY State: http://underclearskies.com/2011/04/12/bigby-bigger-better/

    Birds in Song Titles

    Caribou - Brahminy Kite http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXfW08QuhCg I prefer the live version of this track personally - a killer one in my humble opinion.

    Birds in Song Titles

    I put together a fairly decent (I think) indie/alternative playlist on youtube (just posted it to my blog: http://underclearskies.com/2011/03/31/bird-music-indie-mixtape/ These are tracks with bird names in the titles or in the band names - things that seem to have been missed off here so far...

    Female yellow-rumped warbler? Utah, USA

    And for a very good reason it seems! Hey Jim - I guess you can hang onto your one species if you like - personally I prefer them as two - still whatever stance you take it's probably worth noting now what subspecies (if that's how you want to consider them still) an individual is for future...

    Female yellow-rumped warbler? Utah, USA

    As mentioned the IOC has split them, (IMHO) the AOU is lagging behind on this, but I am pretty certain it's just a matter of time. They are on my North American list as two separate species. Whether they are lumped or not currently by the AOU it's probably worth working out what...

    Female yellow-rumped warbler? Utah, USA

    Seeing as Yellow-rump doesn't officially exist as a species anymore (having been split) I would guess that what you have here is an Audubon's Warbler. I don't have as much experience with them as Myrtle Warbler but I think the duller throat and plain brown head at least points in that direction...

    Is anyone Bigbying this year?

    Planning on giving it a bash this year after giving up a couple of years back. Did a little tally for the year including a little backdating. Not sure I am fit to do much cycling (at least until it gets above -4 degrees) but enjoying plodding along (literally) to do it. A rather modest total of...

    Weird Question? Israel

    Hi All, A friends mother is visiting from Israel and wants to find out about planting a bird friendly backyard. Anyone got any suggestions on what organizations she might get some info from? I'm sure there must be some Audubon/RSPB equivalent that would have info like that? Thanks, Luke

    Calling Texas, USA birders for help

    It does help even if there isn't much debate. You can see the distinct supercilium much easier in this shot (rules out Nashville) as well as the strongest area of yellow on the underside of the bird is on the undertail coverts (Tennessee would be variably white or slightly cream colored here...

    Calling Texas, USA birders for help

    Hi Ken/All, Nashville would be much yellower underneath than this bird. Orange crowned show the much weaker split 'eyering' that you see on this bird rather than the complete bold eyering of a Nashville. You can also see feint streaking on the breast that would rule out Nashville and Tennessee...
