Sorry for me, but I'm out of running for birdapalooza. Work, domestic bliss, work, a ray of sun in the PNW and work demand my presence here.


I'm racking my brain for a birder April Fools prank for this thread, but can't come up with one comparable to a "bolting of Double Cross" thread. .... Are we humorless, or is it just me?

Ron - when the chickens take over, you are going to be in BIG trouble!

Sorry we'll miss you Darwin. Maybe next time?

Reilly...I was talking about the lack of white on the tip of the tail. :-)


Looking for anyone who wants to go to Columbia in early May. The birding is amazing.

It looks like I am in. I am looking forward to learning something from you hotties!What's the plan after Palos V? The LA stuff is an unknown to me but I do know the OC and more than one rarity. I look at the LA RBA and don't know park names etc. The OC is my backyard (Inland Empire next best) and I have been birding addictively for the last year but would love to see some new locations.


My boy Jake and I are going on a 3 day Death Valley trip first, leaving tomorrow way AM. I am hoping to see Sage Thrasher etc.

Great photos Dee ee! :)

After meeting at PV and doing a run through the garden, we'll make some group decision on next places to go. Steve W knows where some short-eared owls are that would be fun to see. So come with some suggestions. I know Reilly has some too. We'll figure it out and make a great day of it.

Birding...photography...friends...it'll be great fun.

Hoping to see the White-winged Sapsucker Dee ee posted upthread.

dee ee,

If you can, check out Darwin Falls, near Panamint Springs, and Shoshone Village which is just outside the southeast corner of the park. Both should be great birding at this time. We saw nesting Verdin and Costa's Hummingbirds at Darwin Falls. Shoshone has nesting Crissal Thrasher, Verdin, Phainopepla and Least Bell's Vireo in the mesquite along the Amargosa River. Also, Long-eared Owl nests.

I'm looking forward to a report from the birding outing next weekend in SoCal. I'm disappointed not to be able to make it.
