And they say size is not a field mark.

Thanks for the photos y'all especially for the Swainson's, the Black Throated Sparrows, the Pinion Jay story(be still my heart!) and the building falcon(?) mural and ... .

Darwin,

Relative size can be very helpful.

It was very windy at Bolsa Chica today and this sparrow was using his/her tail to hold onto this perch. I've never see a bird do that before.

Willoughby, that barn owl was RAD.

I believe so Crimpie, that is where they are most predominant (Beldings). I see so many there I don't scrutinize each one! I have come to assume they all are.


ps. I had a good day there in spite of the wind.
For life list-Black Turnstone (3 flew right over me) and Horned Grebe(Ithink, I left my list with R. Stahl last weekend).

Dee ee, I think your second grebe is an Eared Grebe, winter plumage adult. Your Merganser is a common female. I like your Savannah Sparrow photo.
We are starting to see some of our spring migration ducks, cranes and geese. They have to be disappointed that there is still so little open water here.

Went to the Kenai Flats this evening. The birds are arriving and the snow and ice are starting to melt. It is beginning to sound like Spring.
