Yes John, the Canon SX50 HS.

Those Hummers were so preoccupied with their battle that I was virtually invisible. Our wintering Allen's thought he had the yard to himself. He forgot that for the rest of the year he is just one of many.
It was totally chaotic. They were landing 3 feet from me. They even brushed against me a couple times in the heat of battle.

Bob,

What are these? I shouldn't be so lazy and should look them up, but whatever they are, we don't have them where I come from.

aka: I give up.

Hard to tell from that photo but I'm thinking Hermit Warbler. See the black on the neck and back of head? I got a good photo of one yesterday and will post later.

Bob, where was that Ibis pic from, your usual haunts?

Dee ee, you're really trying to get me to sell my equipment, aren't you? ;-)

John Hansen, I'm not convinced those were Least Sandpipers. The white balance
of the picture is questionable to me. But if you saw them as "yellow to
greenish to yellowish brown" (Kauffman) then they probably are. To further
quote Kauffman:

"The toes lack webbing at the base, and they can look surprisingly long for
the size of the bird; it is worthwhile to study the foot structure so as
to have a basis for comparison with other species."

Once, near Seattle, I was convinced I had found and photographed a Long-toed
Stint which, of course, would have been fairly earth-shaking. With the
help of an ornithologist friend at the U of Washington we decided it was
a Bigfooted Least. ;-)
