Sorry Chris/Don as everyone using your last post because
Yahoo is having problem

Normally one would never have a problem between the id of
a Meadowlark vs a Cactus Wren ( which is very remote to
this area) We are sure this is a Western Meadowlark but an
interesting id issue. Photographed today on South
Thompson. Perhaps a Meadowlark raised by Cactus Wren
parents!!

Also Don, not sure if you were aware ,but a nice
Black-necked Stilt occupied the Tranquille area of
Kamloops for a few days last week which is very rare for
that area. Could be the same one sharing it's rareness!!

A birding friend of mine is visiting from Australia. We are planning to head up to the south Okanagan tomorrow for a few days of birding. One of my friend™s target birds is Calliope Hummingbird. I was hoping someone has one coming to a feeder that they know of, so we might try a stakeout.

Jim: I have not had the opportunity to try the new groups due to some travel commitments with relatives. I will be doing so soon, but I just wish to add my sincere thanks for all the work you have done to find a new home for BCINTBIRD. I seem to recall your desire to be replaced as moderator a while back and this has not happened. So your dedication is even more significant and deserving of huge appreciation. Thanks again

Subject: Please don't shut down BCINTBIRD
Date: Fri May 4 2018 20:27 pm
From: bcintbird AT yahoogroups.com
 
Jim,
I repeat my request; please DO NOT shut down BCINTBIRD. You can ask people to use the new group, which I and others will do ASAP. (I just got back from a trip yesterday.) However, if you close the old group, it will wipe out the archives going back to 1999, which is still extremely useful, and YOU, not Yahoo, will be responsible for that. The archive still works very well for people wanting to retrieve info from old messages.
The greatest value of any birding email group is NOT for current communication; it is the cumulative information on thousands of bird sightings over the years, reported by hundreds of birders. If you close the group, all this information will be lost forever!! Most of it is not on record anywhere else. Believe it or not, some of us eBird editors are going through this old stuff and entering it in eBird (where it is far less likely to get lost).
Just recently, in response to an eBird request from Chris Siddle for field notes on some old sightings, I dug them out from the archives of BCINTBIRD. (A RUFF was one of these sightings.) I recorded these field notes in the belief that they would still be available on the Internet many years later, which they were. If you had wiped out the archive, those notes would be gone.
I can understand your reasons for wanting to switch to a new, better-supported email group, and many other Yahoo group listowners are doing the same. However, even if none of us use BCINTBIRD for communication in future, the BCINTBIRD archive is still an extremely valuable resource for historical information, and will be as long as it continues to exist. Once the majority of us have opened accounts in the new group, you can post a message on the BCINTBIRD homepage stating that it is not for current communication, but only for historical info. But don™t close the group, or we will lose all that info!!!
All the best,
Wayne Weber

Subject: Re: [bcintbird] given up

I am not getting rid of yahoogroups. Yahoo is. If you want anything off it I suggest you do it now. It is rapidly falling apart. Verizon bought out Yahoo and as usually happens on a buy out, stuff disappears. Groups has been on autopilot now by the verizon/yahoo staff. No one is even looking at maintenance and has not for years.
I did lots of research btw. About 5 years of running bcintbird-pics. The googlegroup [email protected] is up and running just fine and replys go to groups. For some reason on google groups that now no longer appears to be the case. For some people it works fine. For others replies go to the original author. Others, like myself get reply, which goes to the original poster, reply to list which goes to the group only and reply all which does both. I spent two days trying to sort out why that happens and got nowhere. I even painstakingly went through all the options from bcintbird-pics and compared them one by one with the new group. They are exactly the same. I eventually gave up.
I looked into groups.io but they have a limit of one gig. As you probably know, one gig is not much space anymore although it probably would have been enough. After that someone has to cough up $110. a year. A gig of space is only 341 digital pictures I believe (3 megs per app. ) so that would rule out pictures in the group.
We may eventually end up there and I will just turn off uploads as it is only pictures that take the space.. It would take a lot of posts to fill a group with just text. I did like the look of the groups.io. Nice clean interface.
Groups like .io might go the way of our first list server as well. Google is going to be around for a lot of years. Pretty solid company. Groups.io? I really have no idea who even runs it.
For those 3 reasons I went with googlegroups again. Once people get trained I will probably work fine.
If yahoo groups started in 1999 I guess our group in total must have been up for over 20 years when you count in Dick Cannings original email only list. Pretty amazing

It is too bad you did not do more research before setting up a google group. There is another email setup called groups.io, which allows you to import the archives of your current group when you switch over. I don™t believe google groups does that. Many email groups in California have switched from yahoo groups to groups.io.

If it™s not too late, I would encourage you to set up a groups. Io group instead of the yahoo group.

Rather than subscribe by email, what is the web address of the "new" group?  There is already a BCINTBIRD group for pics whose full name is BC Interior Interesting Bird and Nature Pics - but that is not the new group you have created, correct?  That web address is https://groups.google.com/foru... https://groups.google.com/foru...

What is the new group web address? FYI I do not subscribe to google emails from groups. I go onto my web browser to view the forum.

Thanks.

Oh! jumping to Google.  OK.  I will do that.  We definitely want something searchable, which Google groups are, in a way.

Apparently Yahoo Groups has not been supported for a few years now according to this: https://forums.yahoo.net/t5/Gr... https://forums.yahoo.net/t5/Gr...

That link probably may not work for everyone. You may need
to be using a dedicated email program that reads HTML instead of
on the web. Works fine for me.

If it does not work you can just copy and past the
[email protected] into your email program
address bar and it will subscribe you.

I think BCINTBIRD on googlegroups
is setup. I was going to send

everyone invites but it may be time to
thin out the flock.


To join the google groups I
believe if you just click this link

mailto://[email protected]
your mail program should

open up with the correct address. You
might want to put subscribe in

the subject line and body as well.
Probably not needed but when I

tested it did not like empty messages.


you will then get a confirmation
letter and then I have to ok it.

If you have more than one gmail
account when you log into the website
to

finish your subscription make sure you
are using the google account you

want connected to your subscription or
it will pick the other email

address.


any problems just email me.

Interesting to say the least. Some census results are based on male

Jim,
I suspect they are reacting aggressively to their reflections as if the reflections were rival birds. Lately I have noticed small parties of 3-4 male goldfinches behaving aggressively towards each other. This kind of rivalry and testing of each other may be a prelude to the strongest male pairing with a female. Or the female making her choice from among the battling males.

these two american goldfinches have spent the last 3 days trying to
get through our front window. They sit on the ledge look in and peck
at the window. Sometimes they fly up and down the window. They have
never flown into it though. Just up and down it.

That is good to hear. Thanks for the info Don. I'm thinking the male blackbird I saw was a Brewer's because, after looking online, its call fit the bill. I understand Rusty's are in serious decline and I wonder if that would be due to habitat loss. Most blackbirds I see are along power lines and I always assumed those were Brewer's. Maybe Rusty's aren't interested in power lines. Btw, the cormorant was to the northwest of the wharf, not northeast.

Hi Kyle, I did not see a cormorant nor did I see the blackbird. I will look for it next time I™m there! If you saw a female blackbird with a pale eye, it is most certainly a Rusty!

Hi Don, There was a cormorant drying its wings on the scrappy looking dock to the northeast of the wharf in Salmon Arm. I assumed it was a double crested but it was too far to make out the details. There was what I thought could be a rusty blackbird (I was thinking of Siddle's recent quandary at the time) but wasn't sure, however, the female associating with it had a pale iris. Does that make it a rusty this time of year? They were on the wharf anyway. Hope you can get a look next time you're there.Cheers,Kyle FitzpatrickEnderby, BC

Hi Mitchell:
Sorry for taking so long to respond”it™s been a busy spring for me and I™ve just got around to looking at flagged emails.
You™re a bit early for easy Flammulated Owl photography (i.e. at nests) in May, but give me a call if you can and we can talk about possibilities there. The birds should be back (though it™s been a very late spring here in the mountains) but don™t usually start nesting until June.
I don™t really have any leads on Great Gray, Hawk and Boreal Owls”they are common only north of where I hang out in the Okanagan Valley.
I work in Ottawa most of the time now so don™t get home too often until the summer parliamentary break in July-August.
My cell number is 250-490-6080.

Subject: [bcintbird] Request for Information: Upcoming Visit to British Columbia

Hello All,
My name is Mitchell Pruitt and I am planning a trip to British Columbia in May. I am a graduate student and conservation photographer at the University of Arkansas and study saw-whet owls. I capture, band, and radio tag them. For the most part, my trip through the interior of British Columbia will be a brief several days, en route to Haida Gwaii, so I know I have an ambitious list, but I am an ambitious biologist! The goal for this trip is to see owls and photograph them, if given the opportunity. I™ve been in contact with several fellow raptor researchers on the mainland, but it seems many are limited in their knowledge of how to find some of the mainland owlsand naturally so! They seem really secretive and limited in range..
As a researcher first and foremost, I am not interested in simply getting the shot, only the well-being of the birds. I am solely interested in seeing the birds, learning as much about them and their habitat as I can, and photographing them if the opportunity arises.
I have been working through planning my trip to British Columbia (and Haida Gwaii forthebrooksisaw-whet subspecies) (May 16-24, 2018) for months. Thanks to some fellow researchers on the islands, I think I™ve mostly gotten things figured out as far asbrooksiand Haida Gwaii is concerned, but have hit a wall in planning for other targets, specifically Great Gray Owl and Northern Hawk Owl, but also Flammulated Owl, and Boreal Owl.
My contacts are limited in your region and I thought a quick post would be a great way to reach out. Any knowledge available on potentially finding these species is far greater than mine. As an understanding ecologist, I expect to spend ample time respectfully seeking these species out or sitting and waiting for them to come to me. I cannot wait to begin this once in a lifetime journey! I know it will be awesome.
I look forward to hearing from you all.
Thank you in advance,
Mitchell Pruitt
University of Arkansas
Fayetteville, AR

Jim. I haven™t been able to post to BCIntbirds, so I am sending this message to you and maybe you could suggest it to the group. 

I would suggest What™sApp. Its a free application you put on your phone and/or desktop and it functions much the same as an e-mail group. Somebody has to create the WhatsApp group for BCIntbirds and then people can join it. Anybody can post, and all posts immediately go to all members of the group. Very easy to include maps and photos in any post.

This is what we use here in Hungary and it works superbly well. For the desktop an internet connection is needed (just like e-mail), but on your smartphone you don™t even need an internet connection to receive updates.. It works the same as sending a text message on your phone. Very useful for rare bird alerts when you are out in the field.

Anyway, just a suggestion. :)

time, supported by Yahoo. It may be necessary to look further afield
for another group. Perhaps we may have to just switch to google

Sorry Chris/Don as everyone using your last post because Yahoo is having
problem



Normally one would never have a problem between the id of a Meadowlark vs a
Cactus Wren ( which is very remote to this area) We are sure this is a
Western Meadowlark but an interesting id issue. Photographed today on South
Thompson. Perhaps a Meadowlark raised by Cactus Wren parents!!



Also Don, not sure if you were aware ,but a nice Black-necked Stilt occupied
the Tranquille area of Kamloops for a few days last week which is very rare
for that area. Could be the same one sharing it's rareness!!
