BTW, I just checked and the Gardens' website says it doesn't open til' 0900.
Will we be able to spend an hour and a half profitably outside the grounds?

Lots of great new pix all, except for those scary 'mordor' birds from Mike B - what da heck happened to their head feathers? Really looking forward to seeing all of you that can attend the birdapalooza on Saturday 4/6 at SCBG as the starting point :-) Cyndie - looks like a Hairy Woodpecker to me, beak is larger and thicker than a Downy. Cool birds for sure!

Sharp Shinned or Cooper's Hawk?

I think Sharp Shinned by the size and very tip of it's tail.

Dirt Claud - we will bird all day Sunday as well. Our flight is at about 6pm so that is our only obligation. I think we'll make the decision on where we'll be on Saturday. Stay in touch via phone and we can let you know what time and where.

What is the story on the mordor birds upthread? Genetic issues? Over-zealous mate preening?

Yup,, Hairy,, the downey doesnt have the spots on the uppr wing coverts.

Ya know looking at this thread with the STELLAR pics in it depresses me a little- as it keeps close to home how far ive got to go to recreate a life..A pursuit im positive i will never conclude..;-)

Bob, I agree with you that it is a Sharpie but not because of the 'square' tail.
That is pretty hard to call. What speaks to me is the rounded head, the
smaller size of the head, and the seemingly larger eye which also appears
to be more centrally located.

Sorry to miss you Elcap - I'm sure you'll have a fab time though! We'll post up a birding TR with awesome photos no doubt.
