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...

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...

Another warm welcome to you, den apple!
What a great place to volunteer! And I know the river can produce some really interesting rarities from time to time -- there was an Ancient Murrelet perhaps a year ago or so . . .unfortunately, Louisville is just far enough away (4 1/2 - 5 hours) that...

Krow, on behalf of the staff and admin of BirdForum, a warm welcome to you!
The birds will be moving your way soon -- I'm looking for my first red-winged blackbirds of the season in the next or so . . . increased numbers, at least, since some do stay around all year anymore.

Have read on the news about the storm you're experiencing, so good on you for getting food out there for our friends.
