OK,now that I'm geeking it with my iPhone Ana iPad I gotta put another plug in -this time
Birdwatchers Diary app. They have country lists available, etc.

ps
Back in Sept a Crested Caracara was seen and photographed in New Joisy! WTF?

This just in from the ABA = Xantus's Murrelet is being split into
Scripps's (how do you like that spelling?) and Guadalupe Murrelets.

Gray Hawk is being split into Gray Hawk (Buteo plagiatus, Mexico to western Costa Rica)
and Gray-lined Hawk (Buteo nitidus, central Costa Rica into South America).

Anybody checked out eBird.org? It was started by the Cornell Ornithology Lab
and functions as a freely accessible database. Pretty geeky, but in a good way.
Of course, there is an app!

BirdLog App

I don't see myself hauling out the iPhone to tot up every bird while actually
birding but at the end of the day it would be cool.

Here's a screen cap of their database for Fort Huachuca Spotted Owl sightings:

I like the Audubon app for ebird, it has it built in and from what I remember was cheaper than the other apps that had ebird. The others are good for submitting sightings, but I never do that so I get all I need from the audubon app...it has all the sightings, maps etc...you can search by bird or check out local sightings from the past.

Dirt Claud - that shot of the red cardinal in the snow covered branches was ALL TIME. I hope that before I die I can get that shot! It'd be a poster in my house! Nice shot! Beautiful contrasts of nature. Thank you!

The Falcated Duck is back at Colusa Refuge. A friend and I went out there yesterday and sure enough, easy to see and ID. I only have a point and shoot so my photos are not worth posting of the falcated. Word at the refuge is it's going to be hard to find parking on the weekends.

We did a big loop from Chico starting at the Llano Secco platforms off 7 mile lane and were treated to a Peregrine and Prairie falcon besides many Kestrels, Sandhill cranes, 5 Eurasian wigeon, a bald eagle, and gazzilions of pintails, am. wigeons, shovelers, snow, white fronted, and ross's geese.

These photos with Lassen in the background are from the Sacramento Refuge loop off hwy 5.

Aaah, birds are so... cheering. It is good to see these pictures.

(And I started out cheerful - this thread feeds into my point-of-view.)
