John

I'm also in dee ee's camp: photo suggests a hermit warbler.

Sorry we failed to hook up when you were nearby. Nita and I ended up at the Sac river and had a nice look at black headed grosbeaks and lazuli buntings. Also watched Forster's terns and osprey working the river. Had a brief look at a blue grosbeak and many b orioles all over the place.
Hope you score in AZ.

Last weekend at our "secret" lake near Lassen we had nesting Sandhills, several bald eagles, pileated's, white headed's, w tanagers, wood ducks, gw teal, a lone olive sided flycatcher and listened to an all night symphony of winnowing wilson snipe.

Dee ee...Walden Ponds near Boulder. Maybe one of the best spots in the Boulder area for birding.

Also...great shots.


Leaving for Colombia tonight...should be a great birding trip.

Spending about five days in this area.

John Hansen, on the hummers...

Seems unlikely to be a Blue-throated, JT is not in their range AFAIK. On that first one, I'd think probably Costa's, possibly Black-chinned. We see a a fair amount of both around my place.

Dee, are those photos taken with the SX50? I have a friend who is thinking of buying one. They look really nice.


Here are some shots from earlier this month.



Mountain Bluebird with Horse


Rough Legged Hawk



Sandhill Crane couple


Eagles wars





One of the interesting parts of birdwatching in Glacier NP. My first griz of the year. I wish it had come out into the light.

Stunning photos. That mt bluebird photo should be in a gallery.

Bob DA. I hate ID-ing birds from photos but to me your snipes look like long billed dowitchers. My local snipes always hang out in grassy stuff and the bills on your birds look dowitcher-like to me.

Yes, now I see that it is a hermit, thanks for the help, but, I did get a verdin today at Salton sea.

Not a great shot but..

On the hummers,,one was very small , smaller than an Anna's. The other was the largest one I have seen. I know it is new to me.

In Peterson's the only two big ones like that are Blue throated and Magnificent and it does not show their range...

Some others from this morning at salton sea. I am getting afraid to ID these with all the experts around.. but I think Burrowing Owl?

This one there is no doubt. Black Skimmers A lifer

Phalaropes,, Wilsons?

Gambel's Quail Another Lifer.

Yellow footed Gull. Not sure of the ethics on this one but I think they are a separate spiecie's now. This would be a lifer too.

and a Great tailed Grackel

I tend to get a bit exited because I only get to bird on the mainland a few weeks each year. Thanks for the ID help all.

Not to be greedy/needy/demanding, but any idea on what those birds are called Bob? They are really cool!
