photo quiz 2018 December Birding

“BVD,” we birders like to say, when confronted with views such as these. No, we’re not talking about the brand of men’s underwear. “BVD,” to the birder, stands for “better view desired.”

Is that an aesthetic judgment? We’d rather see a bird’s face than butt? Let’s not go there. Or is it a practical judgment?—an admission that views like these ones are some combination of challenging, difficult, and useless.

It can take some getting used to, but views from beneath can be surprisingly diagnostic. In the photo below, we see color and pattern and shape, the touchstones of field identification. And we’ll tell you that this photo is from eastern Massachusetts in late September. Thus, Townsend’s Warbler and Olive not-a-Warbler presumably are not in the running.

Want more? This next one is the classic up-the-undertail American wood-warbler. One field mark in particular just screams out at us… It was in the same flock as the bird we saw a moment ago, so, again, we’re in eastern Massachusetts in late September.
