I'd love to see a Green Jay and a Brown Jay. What say you experts? Where? When?

John, you might be too far north for a Heerman's.
How could you have missed them further south? They're like fleas on a
coondog's butt on the central coast.

Crimper, I assume that was a rhetorical question.
"Hablas Texmex?"
Hope you're feeling better.

They were a big deal for me here in Seattle when I saw them by bike in October for the STBY:

Tony sees them almost right outside his front door on the SF Bay.


Still it's not a Jacamar, Gull-Billed Tern or White Pelican(love those birds!!!).

Actually Heerman's are mostly here (Morro Bay) June - October. I saw hundreds of gulls on the beach yesterday, not one Heerman's. But when they DO ARRIVE, they are like fleas on a dog :)

A friend just did a Big Day here in SLO county and got 168 birds, shy of the 181 county record.

I'll be trying for Scott's Orioles on Saturday morning in Carizzo Plain.
Wish me luck.

That's interesting, Slater.
Darwin, I don't ever recall seeing Heeerman's in Seattle BITD. Must be that
ol' 'climate change'. Did get me a Sabine's up there though. Eat yer hearts out! ;-)

I'm about to commit myself - it appears that my Midwest Campaign is not
gonna get me over the 500 mark. Late July is too late for a lot of my
target boids. They'll be done singing and for a lot of them little warblers
if they ain't singin' the bell ain't gonna be dingin'. I'm still counting
on a Little Gull in Kenosha.

Nests everywhere this year.

Cactus wrens nested in one of my Joshua Trees, Kestrels are nesting in my eaves for the second year in a row, and now there's Black Phoebes nesting on the side of my other place here in Riverside.

My pictures keep turning out poorly, need to break out something other than the little P&S, maybe just setup the SLR with the long lens and leave it laying out.

I should have been clearer. Location in US - name of city. I know I can go to MX for them, and I know they are in So TX, but it'd be a quick weekend so I want the fewest hassles. Just not sure what you guys think about the best destination (city name) for the Green and Brown Jay in the US. Thoughts?

Oh, and still sick though I think it's now just pure heinous allergies. Very rough month (going on two)!

Crimpie, in a word, Brownsville*; neither of those two should take you more
than an hour or two, at the most, unless I was along. ;-)


*which is why I said 'texmex'. ;-)

Believe it or not..this is a wild bird...the people of Minca feed them. This guy was just hanging on someone's porch this AM. Stunning birds.

Nice photos! Thanks for the Brownsville suggestion Reilly. I've seen a bit about Kingville being better, but they were ads. Not trusting of ads!

Though I lived in TX for 30 years, I've not been to Brownsville (or many parts of TX).

Crimpie, there's a web site of the Brownsville Birdapalooza with a lot of
good beta on the various hotspots around there. Check it out. Oh, they
call it something much more pedantic. You should copyright it.

One of the prettiest birds I have ever seen. Swallow Tanager, Minca, Colombia.
