Thought I would share some local birds. Some of the images are soft as the fog was rolling in. We are finally having our summer it has been in the 60's for the past three days!

A few shots from today at the HB Central Park and Burris Basin. No Scarlet Tanager or Blue Grosbeak (Burris Basin), they are my latest target birds, and, oh yeah, that dang Blackpoll Warbler!

The same baby owls as earlier. This time, I caught all three of them together.

so here's a question for y'all. In Mendocino Na forest this week I heard what I have called a Catbird based on it's call. I could not find the bird visually. The call was most obviously a cat "meow" sound single. The repeat was 6-10 seconds later about 5 or 6 calls in row. The bird also made a harsh crackle sound occasionally just before or at flight. Is it a catbird or a thrasher? the only dumetalla I've found have been east of the rockies.

What a day and age we live in!

Sorry for the outburst but, as an old school film guy, the wizardry of digital photography still has me awe-struck.

Great photos y'all. I never get tired of Yellow Warblers or Sandhill Cranes!

I just spent parts of several days inputing all my birding data onto E-bird. EPIC!
I still found time to go out and look. I missed a Blue Grosbeak by 5 minutes, bummer.

I don't think they're all hers!

These Nuttal's were really going after territorial dominance, a major battle.

Thanks, BrassNuts. The owls have taken up residence here in the yard, and they make getting shots of them about as simple as possible.

Until this morning, I hadn't seen either of the two adults for a few days. Maybe they took off for the weekend to get some much deserved rest.

At least one of the adults is still around.

My only contribution has been, and continues to be, as a cheerleader. Thanks to all of you who contribute photos - any photos. Love them all.


Agreed Dee ee...I can never see enough Yellow Warblers. Adore the baby Canada Geese Conga line!

Nice weekend of climbing and a new route at Staunton State Park. Took a little stroll along Boulder Creek today near the Bobolink Trail...heard several Bobolinks but didn't see one. My new quest.

Dave, I saw something very similar in Tucson. The bird I saw was totally red though.

Great pics, Chaz.

edit: Dave, that male ladder-back pecker looks very similar to a male Gila woodpecker
