That put a face on all of the noise I've been hearing at night.

I wouldn't have seen him if a couple scrub jays hadn't ratted him out.

Whenever the jays or the mockingbirds are making noise. it's always interesting to go see what they're mad at. Usually it's an owl. Or a hawk. Sometimes it's a snake that sets them off.

I think Chaz feeds 'em. Or is it breeds 'em?

Nita,

Thanks for that video link. Of course, now I think I need to go there to see those amazing creatures.

Nice photos, as usual.

Bob, could that bird labeled as Song Sparrow be a Lincoln's?

Slater, your warblers are great, they are hard enough to get in binos let alone a camera:
Blackpoll
Hermit
Black-throated Gray
Blackburnian
Townsend's

I'm stuck on 696 for my Costa Rica year list, but this should be my first year to go over 700 without a pelagic trip. I did managed to pick up both Red-footed Booby and Brown Noddy from shore this year, species that I usually have to get offshore to see.

when I saw this scene I thought of a pride of lions and old world vultures on the savanna...not quite though.

Slater,

Nice clues. There have been a bunch of eastern warblers around here, too, but I've missed most of them. I did see a Black-throated Grey a couple of days ago close to home and there are lots of Townsend's around. Here are my ids:

1-Could it be an Olive Warbler? that would be awesome.
2-Hermit
3-Black-throated Grey
4-Blackburnian
5-Townsend's

[Edit] litle z is right, Blackpoll, not Olive

I agree, Lincoln's for Bob's sparrow. It has the buffy wash on its breast

love the warblers. It seems slim pickings for Bob are great days out for most of us!

I went out and saw a Northern Hawk Owl today. He flew from post to post and then out into the spruce and back. I watched him for about 20 minutes. I wish I could have put a scope on him, but I was on a busy dirt road with nowhere to pull over.

HA Randisi that shot is epic! You could send that to stock photo and they'd use it as a poster! could apply to leaving the nest, growing up, graduation, etc. Total winner there !!

OK I NEED YOUR HELP -
HAS ANYONE EVER DONE A SELF-MADE PELAGIC TRIP BY GOING ON A LOCAL FISHING TRIP THAT ONLY GOES 1 OR 2 MILES OFFSHORE? WORTH IT? or AM I NOT FAR ENOUGH OUT?

I WENT ON ONE BIRDING ONE AND WE WENT 15 MILES OUT AND DIDN'T SEEM MORE THAN WHAT WE SAW 5 MILES OUT SO...???

experienced ocean goers pass on your wisdom!

Yeah super shot Randisi (assume it's yours... or give credit if its knott)

No time for birding lately, so I've been living through this thread. Cheers and keep the good work coming.
