And so it begins, Big Month V is here!!

If you're not sure what I'm talking about, here's the signup thread. If this is the first you're seeing it you're not too late to join in the fun, just post your desire to participate at the bottom of that thread and get out and start birding.

With your post please include the identification of the bird(s) in the photo, or a plea for a little help (Cornell Ornithology Lab also has a site called Merlin where you can upload your photo and it will try and identify the bird). If you're unsure what I mean just check last year's thread.

Here are our Big Month-ers for 2016:

16. Collared dove

They had a nest in my garden at the end of March, but a few days later it was completely blown away by a heavy storm. Today they (I guess it's the same couple) rebuild the nest :)

I'll post this above as well, but if you're having issues identifying your birds, the Cornell Ornithology Lab has a website called Merlin that allows you to upload a photo of your bird and it will attempt to identify it for you. The more clear the photo the better the guess, obviously. Seems to work better on perched and swimming birds than those in flight.

Nice shot of the Great Egrets. I've never seen them with green around the eyes like that. If you would, moving forward please post the type of bird in the thread as well as with the photo.

Details with photo.

Re the comments on the Great Egrets shot; I can't say for sure, but it seems that the male, the closer of the two in the photo, has more black on it's beak.
I know for certain which is the two is the male. : )

Jake,, you're a serious bird hunter. It's just a sideline hobby for me.

Actually I'm a photographer married to a serious bird hunter. I bought my first DSLR to document a trip to Yosemite, but I found I was much happier carrying it than a pair of binoculars when she'd coerce me into a birding outing. Not that I don't love the hunt - her enthusiasm is contagious. I went back and forth on whether or not to bring my Sigma 150-600mm on the recent FL trip for my niece's wedding. I didn't know how much time I'd get to shoot with it (my birding is usually limited to running away from the in-laws by walking down to the St. Johns river), but we stayed right on an inlet in St. Pete Beach and got out to a preserve near Deland when we were at my wife's parents, so I'm glad I brought it (the alternative was a D7100 I'm trying to sell and a 70-200mm). Most of my "birding" is done on my deck with a cigar in one hand, a drink nearby, and the wife staring at the trees for something for me to shoot. LOL

Man, how can you stand it? ;-)

I forgot, you're probably sitting down ... :-)

ETA: I think this pigeon probably had a broken wing (it was resting under a car) but I thought it had beautifully iridescent feathers on the neck ...
