Tony, did you see the slideshow I posted on the previous page about the Pelagic trip!?

Did you see the "tree of life" they had on top of the boat for passerines!?
We saved two RB Nuthatches with that branch! I guess it happens quite often.

One lucky RB Nuthatch. <br/>
The other one was eaten by a Calif Gull!!!!!!...

Those may very well be two of five in-focus photos I've ever taken. :)

John,

I think Reilly is right about the sandpiper in your photo. When I blew it up on bigger display, what I thought was a breast band did not continue around the breast. Therefore a Western.

Slater,

I did view your slideshow. Very nice! The Mola-Mola photos is very cool. I like the idea of the branch for lost passerines. I imagine it makes them more likely to remain on the boat until it returns to dock.

OK get ready... BIG news --

I got the 12th county record of a Philadelphia Vireo!

Philly Vireo. Not very common where I'm from.

Had a great trip trip to California to see my son play at the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in San Francisco. Thanks to Tong Brake for taking me to Point Reyes NP for a morning of excellent birding. Here are a few pictures from my trip to the Bay area trip.

I was out there last Friday, where did you see the stilts?

And yes, Teradactiles still fly on this earth.

I got a picture of them.

Yes Bob, where did you see the Black-necked Stilts? Petaluma? It was a pretty good day at Pt. Reyes. The highlight for me was the Merlin-Peregrine battle. The Broad-winged Hawk was pretty good, too.


Wow Slater! That's a pretty good find. I think I probably saw a Philly Vireo last year while scouting our Xmas count area. I had a brief good look, but didn't know to look for the dark line through the eye. I went back the next day with camera in hand, but no dice. Even a Warbling Vireo would have been very unusual in December.

Tony and John...saw them at Petaluma along with these guys. Must be a great place when the marsh is filled with water.

Awww. White Pelicans in Marin (Pt Reyes, Limantour?). I'm overcome with fond nostalgia!


Nice photos y'all.

I would guess Fox Sparrow for the above, but what a stout bill.

Bob,

Thanks for posting the photo of the Gray Fox. It was good to be first on the road, wasn't it?

Juvenile BH Cowbird seems right. They are very confusing to me.
