      After the lesson on identification I realized that what I previously thought would be a crow was actually a raven. After walking in a forested area that opened into a swamp I observed might be either a swallow or a Alder  Fly Catcher from today's lesson.They were quite a distance so I could not pick up detail But they did swoop over the water. On the way home near an open field I spotted a Ring-Necked Pheasant. It was beautiful.

      I often have trouble deciding between American Crow and Raven--what course did you take to learn the identification?  Sounds like a good birding day!

      I was taking a walk in my neighborhood a couple of months ago (May 7) and I saw a fascinating bird. I was not fast enough to get a picture, but from what I could tell, it had a warbler- like posture. I could see the bottom, which was mainly white, with what looked like a little bit of pastel yellow on the chest and just under the wings. The yellow was barely there, but you could see it. From the final glimpses I caught, the top was a light brown. Any ideas?

      This bird took me awhile to identify, but now I know it is a beautiful, and vocal Carolina Wren. Outside my window, he was just moving like he was is a field. So adorable! So sorry the pictures are so blurry:( (My camera is not very good, wish I could fix it.)0ACDC42D-ED21-4A0D-863C-BE22B5AF97188C6E1DF2-5B3A-4AD1-B357-3BEBEF74EF0B

      wanttohelpraDIG POND The first swallows have made landfall in the UK, fanning out over the greening landscape. The early arrivals, generally males, are a streak of electric blue in the spring sunshine. common on the agricultural lowlands of Europe and North America, but many species of farmland bird are in trouble. In the UK, 19 of these species declined by almost half between the 1970s and the late 2000s, as agricultural efforts intensified and vast fields of pesticide-drenched crops replaced a patchwork of meadows, woodland and pasture. The insects these birds eat have also declined. With fewer habitats and less food, the UK's turtle dove population has fallen by 98% since 1970 while grey partridge numbers are down by 91% on 1967 levels. Swallow populations are holding up, but fluctuate from year to year.

        Amazing picture! Did you take it? How did you capture that?
