Frik!!

That is gorgeous Bob! How is it that birds and tropical fish have colors that exist no where else? Simply miraculous.

I may have to invest in a Columbian bird book. My head may explode if so though.

My head has...:-).

Colombia is amazing...not just birding but the people and beauty of the place.

I'll lend you my book when I get back to Boulder...162 hummingbirds, 203 flycatchers and 141 tanagers. Crazy!

Hey bird lovers, can I get another ID?

Saw a bevy of these flitting around on the Conness plateau. Eating bugs out of the snow. Very shy!

Not the same ones I saw on Lyell.

I had the pleasure of birding yesterday with Tony (yes, our supertopo Tony). We hit Irvine Park, then went to Bolsa Chica and finished up at the Huntington Beach Central Park. Some of the highlights were many Blue Gray Gnatcatchers and Wood Ducks at Irv. Pk, Greater Yellowlegs, Dunlin, Clapper Rail and Least, Forsters, Caspian, Elegant and Black Skimmer Terns at BC but the big highlight was a Philadelphia Vireo at HBCP.
I'm almost afraid to post the Vireo on the rba. I know the hotties will be skeptical!
Thanks again Tony.

If ya'll are all hot-n-bothered about Vireo (least Bell's), I know there is ongoing monitoring in the I-15 corridor, just north of Devore right by where that rail car sideyard thing is next to the creek/riverbed. Definitely a population there, I've been on site with the guy doing the monitoring.

Pilgrim Creek near Oceanside has a known population as well.

Fine shots Bob D'A.
That Puffbird looks a lot like a Kookaburra. Related?

Any questions?
