    I suppose you could call me a birder...yesterday I almost got into an accident when an American Kestral (my absolute favorite bird of prey, second only to the Peregrine Falcon) did a fly over...the hood of my car. It was glorious (five feet away, and I didn't hit it)!

    @Just AnotherPerson this link should make it easy to know if it was a Loon or a Cormorant either way "beautiful plumage"- M. Python

    Thank you for that. It is 100% the double-crested comorant. So now that I know that, I did a search to see if that kind of bird is in the tricities, and yes. I found an article. https://washingtonlandscape.blogspot...n-eastern.html You and @donttread definitely know your birds. I love birds. I just don't know the names of all of them. Normally I just call them little loch ness they look like the loch ness monster from afar with their heads sticking out of the water, sorry I have a strange sense of humor. :)

    So glad you didn't hit it. Now that is a pretty bird, wow such big eyes.

    I saw a Peregrine Falcon on the side of the road yesterday eating a kill. I've actually witnessed them in full dive on their prey, two or three times. Very impressive. I've also seen Bald Eagle, and an Osprey catch fish out of my neighbor's bluegill pond.

    Progressivism, ideas so good, they have to be mandatory

    I've also watched peregrine's diving at Mount Desert Island in Bar Harbor, ME (for most of the day). Un. B. Leavable!! But,
    until you've seen a pair of bald eagles mating in mid air you haven't lived

    @donttread I ran across an article for birders. https://www.nbcconnecticut.com/news/..._content=three

    It is about this very subject. I don't know if you are interested in reading it or not but I linked it anyways. :)

    Thanks. Interesting stuff. Stuff I had no idea even happened. Like insects getting scarce. Now why can't that happen to Mosquittos and Black flies!
