Very nice Tanager! Congrats on a year in birding. It's the best isn't it? Wasn't it the case that initially your family teased you a bit? Nice to see them engaged too. Who can not be captivated by these gorgeous creatures? Happy anniversary!

Up in the San Jacinto high country yesterday. Saw at least 100 of these guys and gals. A little higher than normal altitude for the Western BB.

The Lewis's Woodpecker is a nice one.

From late this afternoon on the UCSC campus:

OK - this is a poor picture of a very uncommon bird (despite the name) This is a Common Cuckoo. Only the second sighting of one in the lower 48. Saw the one bird and about 300 birders today.

Also saw lots of other stuff including this Downy Woodpecker

The white crowned sparrows have returned. The backyard is filled with their song.

Like them, we head into the Sierra in the summer and return to Sierra Madre in winter.

Here are a few from the last few days.

Slater, I finally saw a warbler.. up in Tuolume Meadows. Been all along the rivers in Yosemite and down the east side from Tahoe to Bishop and that is the only one I have seen so far. Hopefully better luck in Fort Bragg next week.

Not sure about this one..

Taken at Marys Lake above Mammoth Lakes.

Perhaps a chippimg sparrow? Hard to tell with winter color and perhaps an immature white crown or ??? Anybody??
