Mike’s Monday Pics 3/13/23 – Feedback Sought On New Project on Warbler Identification

Let Me Know What You Think

By now you should know me well enough to know that I like to take on big projects in a never-ending attempt to make GreatBirdPics go viral (or at least get a few more members).  Remember the “Four Types of Birders” project?  QSAR?  They didn’t grab the attention of the bird enthusiast market (yet) but this next project for sure!

I’ve always wanted to do a Warbler Identification project using our pictures on GreatBirdPics but I could never come up for a way of organizing it.  Just a long alphabetical list of warblers was too cumbersome.  Then I thought about how I identify warblers – primarily by color, certain field marks and to a lesser extent location where they feed.  All I have to do now is to classify each of the 30 some-odd warblers we see here into several distinct categories like Primarily Yellow, No Yellow, Orange Parts, Drab and Skulky, Found on the Ground, and more.  Obviously I haven’t worked out all the kinks yet.  Except for one category –  Warblers Often Found on the ground.  It turns out there are four warblers in this category – two types of waterthrush, Ovenbird, and Palm Warbler.

So I drafted what that page would look like and would like you to give me some feedback about it and the overall concept.  If you have a few moments CLICK HERE to see the page.  After looking it over go down to the very bottom and add a comment and let me know what you think.  I will refine this template and then apply it to the other categories (as soon as I figure them out).  Thanks!
