Lumpers vs Splitters

And if you take anything away from the above article just remember that
lumping can lead to reindeer herding!

here is another from the web, wish I could contribute with more of my own pics, but don't have a nice camera to take pictures with from far away. In time hopefully, need to get some good binocs first.

Dr. F - we are meeting at the South Coast Botanic Gardens at 7:30am on Saturday. We'll run through there then make a group decision on where to go next. Sounds like several people have great ideas. At the end of the day (which I'm sure will include lunch somewhere), those who want to bird on Sunday will decide where to go on Sunday. I'd like to see the Bulbuls, but I am happy to go to the best place the group decides. BN and I have a flight home Sunday at 6pm so we'll need to be at the airport at 4.

Hope you can join us. PM me if you want my cell and we can coordinate.

Oh, and I studied closely Dee ee's photo upthread and given the ratio of the bill size to the head, I'd say that black and white woodpecker is definitely a Hairy.

Pinnacles National Park, CA.

Saw two floating above the crags.
Also saw a House Wren and a Canyon Wren (soooo beautiful)

A Canyon Wren that played very hard to get.

which proved harder to get than I had anticipated this time around

and a Varied Thrush. My son did some climbing too (he's 9) and did like 4 laps on one route because he was so amped on it. Pretty cool to see.

Bob - that is no Red Tailed Hawk. It's clearly an Ivory Billed Woodpecker. :)

I'm a "splitter" not a "lumper."

10 species....omg! The new field guide is the size of a business card.
