Rob, you had a nice Rock Wren.
Here is my best RW from Death Valley. He was calling up at the Wildrose Campground just before sunset.




That shot from Steve was spectacular, a real pro shot.

I've downloaded the point and shoot camera. I got some photos of birders...none of birds. And unlike the bird photos, my photos are marginal. Still they show some fun.


Many of the birders at Sand Dune Park. It was initially pretty quiet, but as we decided to leave for lunch, many birds showed.


Reilly, Dee ee, and local birder Stephen Dexter in the back


Brassnuts and Dirt Claude


10b4me and Reilly


This wouldn't be a complete climbing TR without a butt shot. :)


Urban birding with Steve Wolfe and Stephen Dexter


Birders everywhere ... plus a curious bystander with a dog.


10b4me and Dee ee looking for the Wobblers. :)


We saw many Yellow-Rumps, and a Nashville Warbler


Belay neck training is excellent for birding


Fun lunch at Cozymels


Madrona Marsh...Urban birding for Warblers!


Some fun ducks here - the silliest being a male Ruddy in breeding plumage




We finished Saturday at the shore. Saw dolphins (or were they porpoises?), Sea Scoters, lots of different types of cormorants and loons, Black Oystercatcher and other such birds.


Brassnuts, Steve Wolfe, Stephen Dexter and Jose

Sunday several of us met at the LA Arboretum...


Crimpergirl, Steve W, Dee ee and Matty


Approaching a very proud Peacock displaying for the stairs...the wall...the sidewalk...and pretty much everything.


I was goosing this rascal and he didn't even care!


All the guys saw something good!


The squirrels were friendly...REALLY friendly!


Although blurry (my specialty), this is a great shot!


Another favorite photo...this should be used for a caption contest. Dee ee and Matty


A Common Yellowthroat has their attention.


Coolest tree there.


Love the poppys


Even the turtles were friendly (i.e., demanding)


I counted 28 turtles and one Double-Crested Cormorant in this frame


The birding day ended with seeing a Bewick's Wren disappear into the crack by this door jam. He/she has a nest in there!


Touch guy photo! Matty, BrassNuts and Steve Wolfe (aka Lone Wolf)

Thanks to all who joined us. It was a great trip!

We kept hoping you could somehow make it 10b4me! We saw the Wood Duck, but the Mandarin eluded us. TONS of Cedar Waxwings, Yellow-Rumped Warblers, Bulbuls. We saw some Band-Tailed Pigeons (first for me) and many others. It really was great fun.

That is exactly what we call it Steve. One man walked by BN and said "that thing is an assault weapon". Cracked everyone up.

Thanks for posting the pics, good times, hope to do it again soon. Would crack me up when we would all be in one location and someone would call out a bird, than we would all go running over there with our binoculars, I felt like a dork, but was loving the whole experience.
