Jean Leonatti will verify our mutual experience of just the opposite. We had passed the white plastic bag on the big tree stump when something just didn't seem right about it. "Stop," I yelled, "that isn't a plastic bag." She backed ten feet and we were staring at a Snowy Owl. It stayed in the area (east side of Grand Pass CA) long enough for us to get several people coming from Columbia 75 miles away on it for life looks.

My story is mistaking a white plastic bag for a snowy owl. I lived in St Charles,MO and heard a report of a snowy owl in Redbud, IL. Drove there and excitedly spotted it. Drove home and got my husband and drove back to Redbud. He had to point out to me that it was a Walmart bag.

Several years ago, much too early in the season, I posted that I was hearing a Northern Parula. I had not learned that Dark-eyed Juncos, late winter, before they head north, often begin to sing. There's some remote similarity; they both trill. But I should have known better, and I was embarrassed at having ignored a basic tenet of birding, to consider always what is likely, and not likely, in a given time and place. If you have a copy of the MDC booklet, Enjoying Missouri's Birds, it's it's an invaluable source of information about what appears when.

How about the mistaken sounds?
I remember one Christmas Bird Count with Jim D Wilson - we were searching Binder Lake, Cole County, for birds super early one morning.
We heard a "clack" "clack" "clack". Jim got super excited- THAT'S A RAIL!!! Looking and looking.... heard the "clack" "clack" again....

then ...

We realized it was the Canda Geese as they were walking across the thin ice cracking it.

Brought a smile to my face thinking of that on this dreary day!

I don't know how many times Larry Lade and I have spotted a Leaf Bird up in a tree! Probably the best, or worst, though was the "Cow Chip" bird at Quivira NWR. We were scanning a Praire Dog town for Burrowing Owls and there was a dried cow pile that had been turned up on it's side. Looked very "Owl Like" for a little while. Fun to remember those kind of things!

Years ago in one of Bill Rowe's classes, on a field trip, he trained his scope on a duck far out on a pond. He invited each of us to look and identify the duck. We each dutifully looked and made our best guess. There were 8 or 10 of us. After much discussion, someone became suspicious. Sure enough it was a decoy!
