Project Noah is a tool to explore and document wildlife and a platform to harness the power of citizen scientists everywhere.
Found outside a local hospital.
I've been taking photos of wildlife for a while and then just fits right in.
Michelle - Well then...mission accomplished! haha. I'm a recent convert to birding, butterflying, and planting (?) because of Project Noah.
Thank you so much! I think I have discovered a new hobby. :)
There are several great bird books, for ID help. The internet is great, but searching for a "grey and blue bird" isn't going to get great results. But, looking for them in the bird books, well...you not only learn the bird, or at least type of bird you're looking at, but also a little about other birds as well. I have Stokes Birds and Birds of Eastern North America and another one that is for Georgia. A bird book is great if it has pictures of male and female, and winter/summer, and juvenile pictures. Drawings are not all that helpful for me (a beginner bird watcher) because pictures are drawn perfectly and pictures show shadows and things. Also, consider a water feature or birdbath (bottom of a clay pot works well), and some bird seeds of different types. I put out a cup at a time. This keeps one species from camping out on my feeders. I also set up a cheap little tripod near my window and hooked my camera up set up on the feeder waterer area. I look forward to your pics.
Thank you so much for the ID suggestion and the tip about this fall. I cannot wait to get some photos of the migration.
I first thought, Raven or Crow but simply because they are the only black birds I know names of. Eric's ID above and the other two I just mentioned, have calls listed on the Wikipedia site. Perhaps that will help you ID this bird? Also pay close attention to the distribution of the species. Brunswick is considered coastal (obviously) and I imagine you will get an awesome view in the fall when birds begin their southern migrations. Keep that camera ready. :-)
