Fairly common? Please don't harsh Crimpie's stoke.

So, Crimpie, when's the Chachalacalooza?

Boulder at higher elevations makes sense. In town seems odder. Still very cool. Looked at some online stuff but it combines an area of wildly different elevations. Totally beautiful bird! Hope he comes back!

I do want to go to So TX for sure. My schedule is horrible until July, and I'm not sure if that's the best time to do that. Doubt it. I'm in the Houston area the first of August to visit family and always build in some birding fun though again, it's not the best time. I may have to wait until Spring to see the Chachalaca, Brown and Green Jay. I sure want to get out for some dang fun!

Slater- Anytime you want to make the trip to Alaska I will be happy to show you around the Kenai Peninsula. We have a motorhome that doubles as a guest room too. That goes for any of you supertaco birders.

After I typed that 10B, I remembered the wing shape on Hawks/Falcons and realized I was way off. Cool looking birds.

Honestly, being soft or lacking quality is not something I see. I see bird. I love bird! Thanks for sharing! I wonder how many beautiful scenes we all don't get to see because they are soft to the ever-critical eye of the photographer. :) Seriously gorgeous bird.

Those tanagers and other Columbia gems are amazing.

Edit. Took Maysho and his significant other out today for some Chico birding and had a good look at our usual good summer locals; blue grosbeaks, kingbirds, orioles etc.. plus still had a lone canvasback and Clark's grebe hanging around.
