Chewy, great shot of the 'Ruffled' Grouse!

Slater, it looks a Mew/Franklin's hybrid. And how did you catch a Snipe out for a nice graze on the lawn?
Love the Acorn acting goofy-as-usual shot!

There's a 2nd phase Icelandic hanging about the Boontsma Dairy ponds north
of the Ramona Expressway. More details and pics on the CALBIRDS@yahoogroups.com.
I wonder if the bad weather tomorrow will keep him there. I am sorely tempted.




So I rarely tire of watching these guys; I love watching others work. But
the thought occurred to me what effects this behavior caused them from the
nasty chemicals in telephone poles. I mean it hasn't seemed to have affected
their numbers. In fact, despite the chemicals, they seem to have flourished.
I don't remember them being so numerous as a kid in the OC.

Hehe, I must have been a little ruffled when I gave that grouse a free 'L'. :^)

Since I'm already posting I may as well add a couple more shots.

This sleepy owl was in a barn on the Blasdel WMA yesterday.

A Bald Eagle taking flight, also taken at Blasdel yesterday.

A Black Billed Magpie. (It was surprising tough to get this poorly focused shot of a common bird.)

This next one seems awfully weird to me:
eight Canada Geese goslings (two out of frame) in Seattle in mid-February.
This was taken last Saturday (Feb 16th) on a day I 'cycled
out to Alki Pt (35 mile rt, pretty flat)
and saw three new birds for the hike/bike STBY.

Todays life lister. Imm. Fem. Hermit Warbler (I believe) from Sea Terrace Park in Dana Point.

I went to Prado Regional Park on Monday for the Tropical Kingbird (life list) and the Scissor-tailed Flycatcher (not ll), I saw them but failed to get any photos.

Dee ee, how come you didn't go get the Iceland gull near Hemet?

If y'all haven't checked out ebird.org you're missing something special.
I'm planning this summer's Midwestern Offensive and it is amazing - you
can get the daily checklists for specific days. It seems that I can count
on at least a couple Little Gulls at the Manitowoc Impoundment! SWEET!
