There doesn't really seem to be a dark side.

Well, in Olde Blighty non-believers refer to them with a nod and a wink as ‘twitchers’. And if your garden becomes known as the temporary residence of the rare old Buff Breasted Bedthrasher your hospitality can be sorely tested by the onslaught. 😉
But on the whole we’re generally well behaved.

Cleaning the desk and found an old proof. This just an iPhone copy.

When we were in the mountains of E Oregon above John Day last year for the eclipse we saw one of these in its usual habitat - dry and rocky. It was mid-August so it could have been an early migrant. I had left the camera in the truck 400m away, of course, so no pic. I reported it to OR Audubon but, of course, sans photos they scoffed. Yeah, I’ve only seen a bazillion of these in AK and Central Asia - what the hell do I know?

Bear with me here, I'm trying to learn how to transfer pics from Flickr...

Already by mid-July these guys had lost their snowy white cheeks.
Their bills were still pretty bright!

Edmonds, WA ferry is almost always good for Scoters in the winter. I've only seen Surf ones there.

Love scoters! OK, love all the duckies.

My best Wheatear from Abisko Nat Park, Sweden...

Also from Abisko. Not a good pic (very backlit) but the throat really is that blue.
Izzit why it’s called a Bluethroat? It is like a hummingbird when the light catches it.

These are all puffins! Those little buggers are hard to shoot!

At the foot of the Andes. San Carlos de Bariloche.

I was having I nice IPA (eepah) on the patio of the Llao Llao hotel looking out over the foothills.

Can’t afford the hotel, but the IPA was in my budget and brewed with Cascade and Centennial hops. They have come a long way in the last few years.

Caranchos are in the hawk/falcon family but have gottten use to roadkill, so thats what Argentines call ambulance chasers.

This guy was hoping I’d drop an empanada or something.

Straight outta, as it were.
