    Hooting, Unknown species - U.S., New England

    Around my house and near a few local businesses I’ve been hearing a hooting, but I can’t figure out who it belongs to.

    I’m new to this site so feel free to critique this post. I just went on a birding trip to the inner-island rainforesty area of Saint Lucia around the Eden Estate. I was taking pictures of birds and noticed a small and very blurry bird in one of my photos. I’ll attach it here. It was not a large...

The “nest” (if you can even call it that) is a hole in the dirt of my raised garden bed underneath an overgrown tarragon plant. I wouldn’t even qualify as a novice bird person so I have no clue what I came...
