dee ee, Ash-throated's song is pretty distinctive, for a Myiarchus.


Despite the threat to my reputation I was forced to expose myself to some
rocks for the last three days. But in return this fellow, and there is no
doubt he is a fellow given his territorial assertiveness, exposed himself
to me...


I think he needs to get to the tailocurist, don't you?

I saw little else of interest at this godforsaken wilderness of rocks other
than a very nice Black-throated Grey Warbler who caught me with my camera down.

Did see this primitive bird though - pretty impressive up close and personable, eh?
Dude was really crushing it on this slab and I thought he was in no
danger of growing titties.

Wow Reilly, great one of the Cactus W!

Whoo hoo, the Tanagers are here. I had one in the yard (also one last week up in Silverado)and then 4 (2 male and 2 female)at Irvine Pk. today.

Love Western Tanagers. If it ever quits snowing in Boulder, I'll leave the house and possibly see one. :)

Ah. Well, Tustin is a long walk from Tahoe, but it still seems maybe a teeny bit early. I wonder how slow their northbound trip is. My earliest date for Tahoe is 4 May, but I'm sure a few trickle in during the last week of April. But they're not really here, here until the second half of May. Nonetheless, I guess it's time for the first ones!

Think I saw the same show Slater, was just about to mention it. The one I saw was on KPBS here in San Diego on the show Nature, not sure it it's the same one, but showed the same stuff, with them picking off monkeys, and raising a male that had just been born. Those are some awesome eagles.

Edit:
Anyone here been to Crystal Cove State Park in Laguna Nigel. Was going to head there on 5/4. Looks like some good birding there, feel free to join in if anyone is around on that day.

Crystal cove can have some good shore birds. If you're lucky you may get a road runner in the scrub above the bluffs. Only place I've seen a golden eagle near the coast. Best beach combing, hiking beach in OC.
