I dig the first one! (Although I would have cloned out the branch growing from his head) :-)
Not that the second isn't excellent also.

By the way, thanks to Dirt Claud for that incredible video about Boids of Paradise!
The book is out now, too. I'm afraid to look at the price.

Very interesting article in the latest ABA "Birding" about Lesser Black-backed Gulls
and their incredible expansion in the last 20 years. They have now appeared
in every state! There is still no evidence of them breeding in Canada or
the US but it is probably just a matter of time.

Our trip to SoCal is sneaking up and none too soon. Thought I'd post again about the birding outing. Several of us are meeting at the South Coast Botanic Gardens (near Palos Verdes) on Saturday morning at 7:30 in the parking lot.

To date, those in (or maybe) are:

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
Reilly - looks good - checking with secretary
Matty - in on Sunday
10b4me - a maybe
Elcapinyoazz - possible
Darwin - maybe - trying to get away from work

Have I missed anyone? Looking forward to the birding and the friends.

There were also some Robins hanging out with the Bluebirds snagging berries and such...
Really really want...

Dave,

that last Robin shot looks just like the pose from an Audubon painting. Amazing stuff, thanks!

Excellent observation Little z. I really love that photo and I couldn't put my finger on why it was so pleasing...but you did. Cool!

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!
