So, if I can get 5 more crankloons together we can have a semi-private
bird/animal safari to South Africa! Who’s in? Climbing is an added option!
If you pay I'm totally in!!!

I'll be your man-servant (I give legendary foot massages)

Reilly, we're doing our 'exotic' birding trip this year to Panama in May, but I'll check out the company you mention for Africa, definitely on the bucket list... climbing and birding wise :-)

Thought I’d do some chumming - get to Cape Town a few days early with me and we can hit
West Coast Nat Park for the wintering N European shorebirds like Curlew and Terek Sandpipers! We could also go out on an extra pelagic in addition to the one included in the tour. 😈

Yes, Tony, Bolsa Chica. Hadn’t been there in a while so imagine my outrage to find the parking lot closed! You have to park across PCH and pay $15! Then you have to risk yer life crossing PCH as there is a light but no crosswalk, but there are big signs saying you can’t cross! 😡
The silver lining is that it was deserted on a Saturday!

Q, a pity, it coulda been the start of something beautiful, so to speak.

Hail Mary question for any of you because I can't figure this out:


My parents are in Soddo, Ethiopia for a month with internet and no transportation. They can't really go to a store to buy a book, but I can't find any apps for that area. What's the best option for an older lady to figure out the birds she sees every morning? (besides texting me pictures to ask like she has been)

Have 'em send me a ticket! I'll run a book out to them.
Failing that they should ask around, there's gotta be a few twitchers there.
Ethiopia has a lot of cool boids! 924, give or take a few, with 20 endemics.

Here’s a link to Ethiopia beta:

Tony-
Thanks for the interesting and educational links. I have observed other birds (cactus wren, road runner) scraping their beaks against rocks to either sharpen or clean them. Because the jay doesn't appear to be attempting to remove the excess beak I have to assume it is not causing it to suffer in any way.
Did you observe a hawk with long-billed syndrome? Frightening that the experts can't nail down the cause.

limpingcrab,

Here is an app that should cover it.
Birds of North Africa
It looks like they have both Android and iOS versions. They make the Sibley and Australia apps that I have used.
