Driving through a town in Norge today right on the fjord and an Oystercatcher ran across the road in front of me! HaHaHa! Glad I was going slowly. Dunno what he was doing in the farmers field! Definitely no mussels there! 😜

Reilly - it must have been looking for the Norwegian version of Rocky Mountain oysters.

Striped Owl with a bedtime (05:30) snack, it's sort of hard to see, but it's clutching an Orange-chinned Parakeet!

Heidi & I have gotten close enough to two Mountain Bluebirds this year to actually take ok photos of them. This one was near Sun Valley.

And this one flew up & posed near the top of Bath Rock at City of Rocks last week.

That's two more than for the last 10 years, even though they are Idaho's state bird.

Ksolem - your mystery bird is a Red-whiskered Bulbul. It's an introduced species from India and SE Asia that has become established in the LA area as well as at many other non-native locations around the world. Not as successful as European Starling or House Sparrow, but in the same league.

^^^^ A turquouse bill? Seriously? Maybe for Mardi Gras!

Speaking of flamers, I got me some gud shots of a Common Redshank today, but not with this rig so you won’t see ‘em fer a while. Saw the pair of ‘em chasing gulls away from their nest. Gulls were 8 times bigger but that didn’t matter! 👍

Also got a Garden Warbler today - got lucky, they’re tough to see!
Was really happy to get a good look at a Sedge Warbler the other day from a blind. WOOT!

Some western screech owls on the north side of my shop and a dove sitting on her nest. Its an old milk crate I screwed to the wall, under a little awning covered by oleanders. The owls love that spot once summer rolles around here in phoenix. Up untill this season I thought it was an Owls only kind of place.

well i'm a little late to the party, given the range there are many here familiar with the phainopepla. had me kind of wound up and though i wrote up a damn fine description asking for help, before i pressed send, i went back to the apps one more time and "crested flycatcher" solved the puzzle. i won't wonder next time ... what a looker! i chose this guy's image as closest to what i saw:

Phainopeplas breed in two distinct habitats at different times of the year, an unusual pattern among North American passerines. Between February and April the species breeds in the Sonoran Desert in Arizona and in the portion of the Sonoran Desert extending into California, called the Colorado Desert. As summer heat intensifies and berry supplies dwindle, Phainopeplas vacate the desert. In May, they arrive in the oak and sycamore canyons of Arizona and California, where they breed through July
