It is wonderful to see my summer residents in your photos further south. Winter gets lonely as far as bird watching up here. Daily I see gulls, crows, ravens and eagles. At my feeder are black-capped chickadees and red-breasted nuthatches, and the downy woodpeckers. It is a quiet time in the cold north.

As usual, lots of great shots.
Matty, your last one looks like an immature robin
to me. . .but maybe knott. . .

BN, gorgeous Flicker!

SteveW, I agree about the Robin although the face disconcerts me slightly.

Reilly--I'm not totally certain, but those would be
the mottling due to the immature phase. . .

No, I mean that the supercilium and the malar stripe seem to meet to form a 'C'.
But I still give it a 97% probability of a Juv Robin.

How many Lessers can you count? They just love this tree next door.
Haven't figured it out - they always seem to hang out in it when the
weather is 'bad'. 'Bad' being a relative term here in Paradise.




BTW, I just got the Peterson app for my iPod. It is pretty awesome. I
didn't see that there was also a Sibley app available so I didn't check it
out. Pretty happy with the Peterson but ignorance is bliss.

The Black Scoter is still around. He is displaying to Greater Scaup with his plaintive whistle and poor results. Here is some video that I captured:

Matty, now you tell me! iBird Pro does look good* and it is on sale for
only $5 rather than the usual $30 so how could I say no? But it is taking
like forever to download! Oh, wait, it is 577MB! Zowie!


*The customer ratings are astronomically high!

Wow Bob a photo of a Lewis's! Do you see them often?

Thanks Cyndie. How have the Lights been?

Tony, I really loved the confused Black Scoter. Laurel says: "I would be confused, too." Greyness has settled on Seattle again, but there are Snowys around town which I've tried to track down on my bike [ed], but to no avail.

Thanks to those who ID's my bird as a young Robin even if uncertain it's more than I knew before and I appreciate that.

OK, so I am at a complete deadend on ID'ing this guy. Saw him in an oak
tree a few miles from the Mexican border west of Nogales in May. I mean
he has a beak like a Tropical Kingbird (it even has the little hook) but
the plumage looks more like a Grey Jay!

I'm going nuts! OK, make that nuttier!
