* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Housemate spotted this beauty sitting on the swingset in the backyard.

Hey Altair or anyone else who knows birds - I think it's a juvenile redtail, maybe? Spouseperson suggested a broad-winged but I think there's too much white on the breast?

I'm leaning toward red-tail but I'm not positive. Definitely a magnificent backyard visitor!

Gorgeous bird! I think it could be a juvenile redtail hawk - possibly the borealis version? See here: https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Red-tailed_Hawk/id

I looked at a Broadwinged Hawk and it doesn't match, especially the coloring on the head.

Altair may know better though.
