thank you very much for the post,have a great day

Amazing birds, I would like to see live red-winged thrush

The birdies are pretty as always, I would love to join this project but sadly there's no nearby area in my city where I can do birdwatching freely. But this is more like a therapy to a nature lover.
By the way good collection of data seems like you came across bunch of different little creatures.
Stay healthy and keep flourishing.
