    Poll - Do you agree or disagree with the AOS's recent decision to abandon the use of eponymous bird names?

    Totally a cultural revolution. Leftists are everywhere. Be sure to check under your bed before you go to sleep.

    Inaccessible bird species

    You could considering moving the 3 Hawaiian E birds to A1 or A2. I don't think many still hold hope for them.

    Red-tailed Hawk? (Ottawa, ON)

    Red-tailed seems like a good bet. It's not unusual to see them on top of highway poles watching the grassy strips for prey.

    I should have specified that I use Android. The update schedule and app functionality could differ for iphone.

    Alaskan Waters, Murre ??

    My vote is Common based on bill shape and less clean demarcation between dark and light on the sides of the body.

    Aves Vox not available on android anymore?

    Bird Call Xeno released an update a couple of days ago. A quick test indicates that it is now working again.

    What bird is this? Its in Michigan

    For what it's worth, I sometimes find the apparent size of birds surprising when I see them close up or in unexpected environments. I just checked the field guide and it lists the length from bill tip to tail tip as about 10 inches. This appears to be roughly half the length of the...

    Which Loon? Sitka Alaska

    Looks like common loon to me too. I think the extensive paleness on the bill also points toward a young bird too, but I can't definitively say that it is an immature bird.

    What bird is this? Its in Michigan

    An American Robin that is not in full adult plumage. Or a very realistic hood ornament?

    Yellow Warbler (florida coast)

    I haven't experienced this problem. The taxonomy view defaults to ebird, so you can check that. You can also look into "Special reports" and then "Splits and lumps" to see if you can get a better understand of what might be missing.

    Yellow Warbler (florida coast)

    Are you using the latest version of Scythebill, 15.9.0? It is correct in this version. I don't recall an error in past versions, but can't say that I've checked them all.

    24/7 Raspberry Pi/birdNET monitoring

    The birdNet-Pi and Lexrst's approaches are both neat. I'm hoping for a solution that doesn't require an internet connection, can run in the background, can identify many birds species outside of USA and Europe, works in real time, and is suitable for carrying around on a hike. A number of...

    24/7 Raspberry Pi/birdNET monitoring

    I've tried birdNET and the app, and they are impressive. My desired use case is different than is possible with the app. I'd like something that can be left running continously in the background and which will alert me once a species of interest is detected. Such an arrangement seems possible...

    24/7 Raspberry Pi/birdNET monitoring

    My interest is in real-time identification of bird songs in areas without internet connection. I may have lost the thread, but I thought that they could support a signficantly larger number of species than the Merlin app. Has anyone tried it for this purpose?

    Austin Texas area- ID with just a calling?

    Welcome. It's tricky to put bird sounds into english letters as everyone does it differently. That said, my guess is that you might be a hearing a eurasian collared dove. There are many of them in residential areas, and they can sign frequently.

    Wind & American Woodcock Displays

    Not too long ago, there was a night were they were putting on a decent display with temps near freezing and 10-15 mph wind. Maybe finding a good habitat for them is a bigger key.

    Can you please ID the bird for me. Picture taken in Vancouver in May last year.

    Anna's Humminbird by color of gorget and others such as the bird's shape and location of the sighting.

    Can you please ID the bird for me. Picture taken in Vancouver in May last year.

    It looks like Anna's based on plumper silhouette and stouter bill. Also Anna's is common at that location, whereas Ruby-throated would be very unusual.

    Plastic lenses

    As dumb as this question sounds, will you please explain a bit more about your technique for cleaning eyeglasses. I am guilty of sometimes using cleaning clothes, even ones that have been previously used. Is this also your method of cleaning (glass) binoculars and scopes? I am more careful...

    Wind & American Woodcock Displays

    I find that the only display for around a half hour and don't start until a bit after sunset. Offhand, I would guess that it is often 15 minutes past sunset before they really get going.
