Check out this killer "Black" Merlin we saw yesterday at Irvine Park. We also got the Rufous Crowned Sparrow for life list.

We took our feeders down (that we regular disinfected) after finding 3 more dead pine siskins under the feeders for a total of 7 this winter. : (

We'll put 'em back up in a few weeks but the siskins will probably be back in the mountains by then. We still leave out food for juncos, wb nuthatches and our cute little oak titmice.

OK Willoughby, how do you get a shot like that? Is it just your natural bird attracting vibe or some kind of trick?

I got some of my best H.bird shots at the Back Bay this week...and this Song Sparrow!

"Chickadee Ridge" off Tahoe Meadows, along 431 near Mt Rose Summit. Folks have been hand-feeding them every winter for years, so you can just stick out an empty hand and they'll fly over and land on it. Hold out a camera to take a picture, they land on it. Put a couple of sunflower seeds on your hat...they land on it.

Though I've had quite a few chickadees land on me while pishing, this was a baited setup. I confess.
