    Birds seen when not 'birding'

    My 'incidental' bird sightings have gone up since I've started carpooling to work on a drive of about 35 miles one-way. It's a route through very flat highly agricultural land, so birds are at a bit of premium anyway (meaning flat and cultivated right up to the fence posts, ditches and roads...

    Welcome, Sheila. The Chicago region can be terrific for birding, and Lake Michigan is a wondeful conduit for migration. Ever birded down in the Dunes? Hope you enjoy yourself on the forums.

    Voting Booth - February 2006 :Theme - Perched Bird

    Well, criteria or no, the selection this month was quite difficult for me. I know I was swayed in my final choice by the fact that owls are among my favorite birds . . . I'll leave it to you to guess which I chose . . . . And I'm no photography judge. I just go with what makes my heart go...

    Help identifying this duck

    A bit of a puzzler. My first impression was another mix of mallard and domestic (which happens frequently and turns out all kinds of variations) but then I saw the tail -- which looks a little like a Ruddy's. Hard to know, since there's no size reference.

    Comment by 'Beverlybaynes' in media 'One POed red-tailed'

    Neat picture, Gene! Wonder how many people would think 'eagle' to hear that -- since filmmakers invariably use a red-tail's call . . .
