Reilly - if you haven't met Steve Wolfe, you are in for a great surprise. Really nice guy and master photographer. We've met him several times this years for birding/photographer. More planned for next year. Can't wait to see what you get!

The Lewis's Woodpecker has really been a tease. I'll get a good one soon.

Congratulations Reilly!!! Looking forward to your photos...

Not as exotic, but we had a Common Redpoll at our feeder this morning. Very cool!

Right on Reilly! Only have White Wagtail from Zermat. Post up sooner than later. Great close up of that Say's, BN. Also nice ones from Bob Da. Took a while to find waldo in that Snow shot by slater : where dat at?
Had to leave the Chico CBC early yesterday due to unrelenting cold. The cold rain wasn't helping either. Did get my first in town evening grosbeak, usually only gotten around here up in the pines.
Any other CBCers on ST?

I did the Christmas bird count yesterday. It was clear and about 9 degrees. I found 8 species with a total of 39 birds.My best find was the only Spruce Grouse seen in our circle. Our group had 34 species with most being Bald Eagles, over 500 total. I drove 58 miles of backroads and spent about 5 hours out looking.

Saw four different woodpeckers at the feeders and in the yard today. Taos is a pretty cool place for birding.

Way to tough it out, Cyndie! Did the Xmas count in Wasilla and don't think the wife and me broke 50. But we did see a Kingfisher which got 'em way excited back at HQ. Also saw a
Brown Creeper!

Glad you found it! Not easy! That was in Yosemite, right off Tioga Pass Rd. where they closed the road near Crane Flat.

Did CBC in San Luis Obispo, 76 Cedar Waxwings and a Golden Eagle were the biggies in our section.

Slater,I'm afraid my eyes aren't good enough to see your mystery bird. What was it?

I had to work for this one for the ST Biking/Hiking big year. Four hours of biking in 38F wind driven rain in beautiful Seattle/Ballard got me to a Snowy Owl. I also searched with no results for a Summer Tanager that's been hanging by a suet feeder in Wallingford. A house guest saw a luecistic robin at Magnuson Park today, but I missed it.

Me back at the home bikeport trying to get the pain out of my thawing little pinkie.

The snowny owls seem difficult to photograph because of the large dynamic range of their feathers.

And the owl watch scene in Ballard. I didn't see it, but there is apparently another one a couple blocks form this one.
