It seems like 99% around here, and there are hundreds if not thousands, are Red Crowned but I believe this pair is Lilac Crowned. It's amazing how good their camo works in the thick trees.

Is that "be" too drunk or "bee" too drunk, Matty? JK, have a great time on your cruise.

Thanks Willoughby,
last June we were in Dinkey Creek Campground, where we always are at that time, and saw one about the campground and we were trying to figure him out.
I asked Todd Battey if he had seen him and he said something to the effect of, "related to bluebirds." He didn't just want to tell me.

That helped!

So last week I'm over at the John Baca Park (where the Ovenbird and Least Flycatcher are)and I'm stiking out on my quest to get a good photo of the OBird and the Least FC (or even see them again)but the Solitary Sandpiper is there in his usual spot.I'm dragging my feet about leaving and using the excuse to see the Bell's Vireo (which is the only rarity I haven't seen there). I see this bird there and I'm thinking "what the hell is that?" It's Sparrow like but I can't figure him out (my binos and eyes aren't too good). I see the eye stripe but.... I've got the camera but no book(up in the car). I take 50 pics, I'm sneaking around to get different angles etc.
I get back to the car, I pour through the book, The only thing I can believe it is is an American Pipit. Then I remember the last Am. Pip. I saw was right exactly there. Damn, getting old sucks.

Thought I'd post up our our Saturday, April 6th Birdapalooza is shaping up.

Birdapalooza begins at 7:30am in the parking lot of the South Coast Botanic Gardens on Saturday April 6th. http://southcoastbotanicgarden.org/

We'll run through the gardens then move on to some other area. And we'll be birding on Sunday also - a place to be determined. I'm hearing lots of good ideas.

To date, the fledgling count is as follows:

Steve Wolfe - In - friend we meet up frequently to bird
Jose - In - a young CA birder we meet with frequently to bird
BrassNuts - in
Crimpie - in
Dee ee - in
Dirt Claud - sounds like a for sure. Will show with new binos!
10b4me - a maybe
Matty - a maybe on Sunday if he dries out from the cruise. :)
Slater - out - too far to drive
Elcapiyoazz - possible
Oldclymr - out - too far to drive
Reilly - looks good - checking with secretary
Darwin - maybe - trying to get away from work.
Nita & Andy - out - too far to drive
Eric O - out - too far to drive

As I mentioned, it's open to all so any lurkers out there, get a hold of me so I can get you on the list and look for you in the pkg lot.

I hope I have not missed anyone. Let me know if I did. It'll be a blast. Rick Accamazzo has been to the post-birding-eating with Jose, Steve Wolfe, BrassNuts and I. I'm looking forward to it!

Beautiful photos and birds Stahlbro.

Let me know if I missed someone on the list. I think I'm mixing up some real names and some ST names. I feel like I heard from you Stahlbro, but maybe I'm wrong. Or maybe you're on the list. I'm confused. :)

A slight update on the birding list:

To date, the fledgling count is as follows:

Steve Wolfe - In - friend we meet up frequently to bird
Jose - In - a young CA birder we meet with frequently to bird
BrassNuts - in
Crimpie - in
Dee ee - in
Dirt Claud - sounds like a for sure. Will show with new binos!

Nice ones Stahlbro. The owl on the nest shot is great.

What is the little yellow-crowned one, Stahl? Not seeing that in my Stokes...unless that's a Verdin.

FYI, the Pasadena chapter of the Audubon society is having a trip to hunt for owls on March 30. This will be in the San Gabriel mountains between 6pm and midnight
