I arrived back on the island late Thursday morning and there was the expected buzz of activity. The Terns are settled in and seem to be doing quite well. There is a good number of active nests and…Continue

Cool (cold?), breezy, sunny weather has been keeping our local birds active and a few apparent migrants lingering. The black species are especially notable as resident STARLINGS vacuum peanuts while…Continue

MACHIAS SEAL ISLAND REPORT

Other than a steadily increasing number of Alcid & Tern chicks and the first EIDER chicks emerging, things have been relatively quiet. Yesterday was an exception, with several birds apparently arriving Tuesday night. There were several RED BREASTED NUTHATCHES, making me wonder if this is going to be another banner year…See More

MACHIAS SEAL ISLAND REPORT

Will it ever warn up? I suppose it is getting better but it seems a slow grind.Last week produced more species than we usually see this far into the post-migration season. There were brief visits by an EASTERN KINGBIRD, a EASTERN MEADOWLARK, an EASTERN BLUEBIRD, 2 EASTERN PHOEBES, 2 ROBINS and a BLACKPOLL WARBLER. A RED BREASTED NUTHATCH and a BLACK TERN each continue to linger and at least once there was a sub-adult Black Tern present, along with the usual adult. Young SAVANNAH SPARROWS are…See More

MACHIAS SEAL ISLAND REPORT

I arrived back on the island late Thursday morning and there was the expected buzz of activity. The Terns are settled in and seem to be doing quite well. There is a good number of active nests and some have their 2nd egg. New nests are appearing daily. There will be a proper nest census around mid-month. That will give a more accurate picture of the nesting population. Of course the bigger tests are hatch and survival. Mama Nature will dictate those with food supply and weather events.…See More

RALPH ELDRIDGE replied to Patricia Marshall's discussion Two birds that I need help on please
"I think, Patricia, that Joanne is correct. Incidentally, that wary behaviour which you described is very characteristic of the Brown Thrasher and it might help you to identify future Thrashers."

SAINT GEORGE REPORT

Cool (cold?), breezy, sunny weather has been keeping our local birds active and a few apparent migrants lingering. The black species are especially notable as resident STARLINGS vacuum peanuts while migrant RED WINGED BLACKBIRDS & GRACKLES compete with the MOURNING DOVES for everything that resembles a seed. There were a few COWBIRDS present Wednesday, including one late into the evening that appeared docile. It sat on the ground and allowed me very close. Thinking that it might be injured,…See More

Hello

I was wondering if you wouldn't mind contacting me regarding a user review about a gimbal head that I think was given by you a few years ago.

I've just sent you a "friend invite" request as I don't know how else to contact you on this site.

Unless I missed it, I didn't see an option to include a message with the invite request.

We all fail at some things. First I have been thinking of changing my profile so I well get at it and go from there.

Hi Ralph. Still trying to figure out how to fill your last reply  not very good at this.

Love your photos nice work.

You are welcome Ralph. I understand what you mean ... I do like the Exif info also, not for the GPS, but to understand how images are taken ... great learning tool. The GPS is nice if you have that option especially to record location of dragonfly sightings as I do. Good luck with it ... hope you get it working.
