Subreddit rules:

  1. Follow Ethical Birding Behavior. Follow ethical birding & bird photography behaviors as outlined by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the Audubon Society (see pinned post).

  2. No Human Contact With Birds. Exceptions for researchers who are banding birds, or licensed wildlife rehabilitators (proof must be submitted to mods through modmail before posting)

  3. Birding Content Only. No “birds aren’t real” posts, and all posts must be directly related to wild birds or the hobby of birding.

  4. No Fledgling/Injured Bird Questions. Baby birds without feathers should be returned to the nest. Young, feathered fledglings outside the nest are normal and common, and may not be able to fly well yet – they should generally be left alone. If you believe the bird is injured or needs human intervention, contact a local wildlife rehabilitator (http://ahnow.org/). If you are unable to contact a wildlife rehabilitator, please go to r/WildlifeRehab for further advice.

  5. Original Content Only. Any photos must have been taken by the person posting them. Articles can be posted for discussion, however the poster must also comment with their perspective on the article.

  6. Add Context to Photos. Your post should include the common name of the bird, the location, and date – either in the title or a comment. We love seeing interesting facts or observations too!

  7. No Self-promotion or Advertising. Artwork of wild birds is allowed. Watermarks are allowed. One link in a comment to your social media page is allowed. No links to sales sites. Make sure your contributions are about birding and engaging with this community, not promoting yourself. Links to articles should also include some discussion about the article.

  8. Be Civil. No personal attacks or insults. No hatred, bigotry, racism, or other uncivil behavior.

A white-winged dove attacked a mourning dove?

When I was looking out my window upstairs, I saw a white-winged dove attack a mourning dove over a pile of seeds. I thought those two dove species get along, but here they don't? Is it normal for white-winged doves to attack different bird species?

What is this juvenile?

One of two juveniles in a small tree in Skiathos, North Greece that is being fed by its parents into the tree? Seen lots of house sparrows around but the eye stripe looks extremely dark? Any ideas welcome thanks!

How to move nest?

The birds made a lovely nest in our gutters and it's causing a little issue. It does have birds so it's active, but we haven't seen if there are eggs. Any suggestions on how/where to move it to increase the odds of birds returning to it? I do have a feeder close by that they use so hopefully that helps?

Can anyone help me identify the type of bird on this tattoo? It says "eagle" but I feel like it looks different. I was thinking a hawk, maybe a falcon? Reminds me a bit of Ra which is why I think falcon... Thanks!

A Blue Jay

Anyone else absolutely love these birds? They’re so much fun to watch!

When I was first getting into birding, it absolutely blew my mind when I found out they’re corvids.
