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.

Hi all. I sent several emails but thought I'd post to make sure all were invited to a day of birding at the South Coast Botanic Gardens http://southcoastbotanicgarden.org/.

Posters and lurkers are welcome. Experienced and noob birders are welcome.

BrassNuts and I will be out there for the day on Saturday April 6th. We'll be in the parking lot at 7:30am. We'll probably head out somewhere else at some point during the day.

Be fun to bird with everyone who is interested. We'll have a wide range of experience in terms of birding. Hope all can join us. Let me know if you'll make it so we can be sure to meet up in the pkg lot before heading in.

p.s. Great photos continue to be posted on this thread. Thanks to all of you for sharing them!

Bird watching Bump,

Thanks for the invite Crimpie, hope to meet up with you guys in April.

Anyone here know a good pair of binoculars to buy in the $100 to $150 dollar range that would be good for bird watching?

I checked out this informative article that has some good advice, but was hoping to get some input from the local birders on this thread.
