    Seeing the birds in flight is always a joy, the wonderful photos and the duets captivate.

    @Karrin Recently I was birding in Green-Wood Cemetery here in Brooklyn and one of the more experienced among us spotted a Northern Saw-whet perched low in a yew shrub.  We broke into small groups of three to move in closer for a glimpse. I was studying and studying, thinking I could not see it even though I was gazing exactly where our guide was instructing us to look!  I was just about to give up when I realized what I had been thinking was a stick was in fact the Saw-whet angled in such a way that it's breast looked like a white stick in a gap area of the yew shrub. All at once, my eyes caught sight of the owls CLOSED eyelids and the whole bird suddenly became clear to me.

    I have had the great good fortune of seeing up close and personal - the Snowy,  the Great Horned, Barn and Saw whet and Barred. Each an amazing precious experience.

    Actually, as I moved through the lesson chapters I figured it out. Sorry for any inconvenience. It's a great course. Will require many viewings to fully absorb; promises to be a great resource to return to over and over again. Thank you. DB

    I don't understand how to move through the 14 exceptional birds EXCEPT to click on each link in the list beneath the photo. You seem to suggest  there are to be 14 images (1 of 14) - focused on some exceptional characteristic BUT there is no way to scroll through 14 images EXCEPT as stated above to click on each link. Are we supposed to deduce what makes each bird exceptional based on our readings in eBird and/or All About Birds? Is this REPLY TO BIRD ACADEMY the way  I enter the discussion ?? Where might I expect to receive a REPLY FYI my email is brandon.dolores@gmail.com
