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.

Looking for advice re birdhouse camera

Bought this product without fully understanding what I was getting.

https://www.wildviewcameras.co.uk/product/Green-Feathers-Wireless-Camera-kit

I am looking for advice for a device to record the video from it. I have a place outside where I can safely leave it plugged inside a greenhouse so it doesn't need to be weatherproof. Just something reliable that won't break the bank.

Hey guys, can you help me figure out how hat this bird is? It’s always sneaking around the feeder but never seen it inside. Thought it was a sparrow but it looks bigger than them.

I believe every birder has a species that just seems to elude them. For me, for a long time, it was the spotted nutcracker. I apologize for the quality; it was a chance meeting.

Can someone identify this bird?

I was looking out of my kitchen window and saw this guy sitting in our backyard killing a dove, we live in the middle of the city so I never saw one of those.

Are these just pigeons?

I thought they were just pretty pigeons, but I can’t really find any other pigeons that look like this. [Salt Lake City]

Trying to encourage birds away from patio

My grandma has a ton of birds that nest in her patio awning. It makes sense as it’s safe spot to be in, but unfortunately they’ve wreaked havoc on her patio furniture. I don’t want the birds to be harmed and thought of a more “natural” way to encourage them away from her patio:

Would setting up a bird feeder on the far edge of her yard, away from her patio, deter unwanted patio nesting or would it not matter? Birds are inevitable and I love watching them outside, I just don’t think a patio is the right place for a bird.

Golden Eagle in Flight

I have been seeing a lot of goldens recently. This one a couple weeks ago followed by another stationary one an hour later. Then one yesterday on a carcass just outside my window of the truck when we drove by. And another THREE today on a carcass. They are so big and amazing!! Golden Eagle country here in Idaho. 🥔
