Slater, you are right, any day birding is good. I forgot to mention, it was mid day, 90 deg, and all the birds were hunkered down in the bushes. A lot more action on the coast then where I was at the 1500 ft elevation in the foot hills up by Auburn. The warblers never seem to show up till mid october or later,,still pretty good first day.

I forgot a few I saw like YB Magpie and a wild Turkey.

Today I went back in the early morning and got a few more, then drove up to tahoe to see my brother and ended up at Mono Lake.
Too much driving and not enough birding but I did get,,


Roufus sided Towee
Killdeer
House finch

Stellers Jay
Junco
And Raven(at tahoe)

Then at Mono Lake I got
Avocet
Marsh Wren
Eared grebe
White crowned sparrow
Shovler
Ruddy duck
Gadwall
Marsh hawk

For a two day total of 48

My computer died a couple month's back so tommorow I will get a new photoshop program to edit my photos.

Had a cool time this morning with two Flickers playing ring around the rosie around some tree trunks, really good early morning light.
I always like to crop my photos at least, but here is one of the Flickers.



Nope not working, got to resize.
Dont want to post some huge picture, will wait till I get photoshop,,

Good birding all, see you at the face lift.

I'm going with Greater: bill bi-colored and a little longer than the length of the head.

John H.; Try Gimp and ImageMagick. They are free and only marginally more difficult to use than PhotoShop.

Here's my overview of early Fall at Montlake Landfill in Seattle. I haven't seen anything spectacular but for N. Pintail butts (see last posting). I finally did see a Green Heron for the year, but didn't get a photo of the dear.

To paraphrase Tony, there sure are a lot more birds in the fall:
