Definitely var. invisibilus, but I am leaning towards Robin. The would explain Ouch's missing birds.

Hmmmm. Invisiblilus is a good call. I thought perhaps it was a snowy egret in a snow storm. However, not being able to make out his 'golden gloves' sort of had me wondering. I think you guys are on to something...

Actually, it is a Road Runner. (I theenk.)

But the photo is seriously over-exposed.

Instant thought is the bobolink:

Sharp-tailed Grouse:

I did not know this one. Took some looking. Cool looking bird. For what ever reason, I'm not good with owls. Let me dig some.

Anyone else? Curious about the first bird. Bobolink? Some sort of black bird given the conical bill, eh?

Hmmm.

I have only seen one bobolink - very exciting!

Did you go bird watching this weekend? How fun!
