"I wonder if your mystery bird might have been a female Pine Siskin? They can be very nondescript, the size is right, and they feed and associate with Goldfinches and similar species."

MACHIAS SEAL ISLAND REPORT

The yesterday's freezing rain and adverse gales, along with the overnight tempest, wasn't particularly conducive to migration but a few birds seemed to move as the wind shifted briefly a bit to the west. I'm looking at a bright male ROSE BREASTED GROSBEAK, feeding on the patio.It wasn't here yesterday. I've also been watching a CATBIRD bathing in a rain puddle. I suspect that it's a single individual that's been hanging around for several days.It's exceptionally flighty and ignores oranges and…See More

MACHIAS SEAL ISLAND REPORT

Migrants are showing themselves in abundance, as indicated by the reports coming in fast and wide-spread. Here on the island the Sparrows continue to dominate.We have had helicopter traffic in recent days and the birds erupting from the vegetation when a flight came really close pointed up how few birds we actually see. Today has produced a large flight of TREE SWALLOWS and numerous HERMIT THRUSHES. One Hermit discovered well disturbed earth under and near loads awaiting airlift and the…See More

Well it looks as if the spring migration is ramping up. Notable movement started here with a significant wave of SONG SPARROWS and our first SAVANNAH SPARROWS arriving Tuesday night and another wave Wednesday night. ROBINS have arrived in numbers and today I've seen BROWN CREEPERS, PHOEBES, GOLDEN CROWNED KINGLETS, BROWN HEADED COWBIRDS, GRACKLES, RED WINGED BLACKBIRDS, FLICKERS, KESTRELS, a MERLIN and a PEREGRINE chowing down on a RAZORBILL.Scattered DOUBLE CRESTED CORMORANTS have been seen…See More

MACHIAS SEAL ISLAND REPORT

I returned to the island on Thursday and things have been relatively quiet for this time of year. RAZORBILLS & MURRES were ashore for a few hours about a week ago, skipped a few days and returned for these last three nights. Friday and Saturday nights they didn't stay.Tonight they seem a little more settled and for the first time there is a handful of PUFFINS amid the thousands of Razos & Murres.The Alcids are still only in the main colony. There are no birds in the upper island and…See More

DSCN6954 otter ?l all Black

"It's hard to judge the actual size.However, if it's the same animal in both pictures then I'd say Mink.I'd rule out Otter because of the tail.Otters have robust, well tapered, short-haired tails."

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.
