OK, so I am at a complete deadend on ID'ing this guy. Saw him in an oak
tree a few miles from the Mexican border west of Nogales in May. I mean
he has a beak like a Tropical Kingbird (it even has the little hook) but
the plumage looks more like a Grey Jay!

I'm going nuts! OK, make that nuttier!

Yo, NorCalers, the Falcated Teal/Duck is back at the Colusa NWR near
Sacramento. They believe it is the same individual which spent a couple of
months there last winter. I sure wish it wasn't a 6 hour drive.

Falcated Duck!

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!
