I am missing travelling to see new and different birds. A bit of a panacea for me is knowing a bit about what is being seen elsewhere and often viewing photos of same. An easy source for me is the ABA daily digest of e-bird rarities, one of the many resources, alerts, lists, ebird settings and so forth.
This one is so easy and it often has pictures of wonderful stuff. Right now Arizona has a pair of *Eared-Quetzals *and there are great photos from yesterday. There is also a batch of photos of a* Plain Capped Starthroat *along with three of four other humming-bird species at feeders-Arizona again.
My 2 cents during the pandemic. Happy "arm-chair" birding all.
