A little birdie in a brown UPS outfit delivered this to the house today. A big surprise and one that has me dreaming of a trip!

Thanks Dropline! It is really a cool surprise and it made my day!

Apologies for the quality of the photo. THIS is why I don't post my own photos here. :)


A birdy surprise!

Is it just me, or does anyone else hear, 'Open Canister' when listening to this song?

BN, did you figure out the hummer on the nest?
Great shots!

Dee, where was the little blue guy?

DC, where in the world do you find those crazy pics?



Boid trivia:

In 2012 B95, an individual Red Knot, became famous as the oldest known
surviving member of the declining pop of Red Knots which migrates from N Canada
to Tierra del Fuego. B95 was first banded in 1995 and has been seen several
times since. He has gained the name of "Moonbird" because in 18 years of
migrating he has flown farther than the distance to the moon!

And all on a diet of bugs! So there!

Saw several Canada geese headed south today. And, a great blue heron just flew by outside our window.

Reilly - I think both hummers on the nests are female Broad-Tailed hummers... Cute little guys, hard to spot but luckily we had help finding them, so tiny! Blue Grosbeak - cool! We saw a female Rose-Breasted this morning along with a McGillvary's Warbler and a Virginia Warbler, then it was time to race to the excitement of the cube farm :-p Keep up the fun pix everyone!

Been trying to figure out what this one was for a while. I see above in BN's post that it is a pine sisken.

Another bird to add to the trip total.

Good for you Dee Ee, I know you are not one to give up. It is always fun to complete a challenge.
I went out to Cook State Park today. Walked the dogs on the beach for about 7 miles and the only birds I saw were eagles and bonapartes gulls. I drove around looking for songbirds after the hike and got skunked. It was a beautiful day, in the 60's, no wind. Maybe it was just too hot for them to be out in the open.

How many here use ebird? I have a droid - can I use it (my cursory reading suggests not). Can someone educate me?

p.s. thanks for the good Blue Grosbeak vibe Dee ee. BN went outside today and right by the house saw a Blue Grosbeak! I've still only seen one at a feeder in Southern AZ!

Thanks Cyndie, yeah when it's hot the birds lay low.

Reilly-The Blue Grosbeak was in Woods Canyon. The previous two days I had been on the other side of the creek. I checked the map in ebird and saw they were seen on the north side, research pays off.

I took my ipod touch on my pm mtn. bike ride and called out a Least Bell's Vireo in Peters Canyon. The poor little guy got really worked up and I started to feel a little guilty!

I think you have to post on the ebird site but I don't know for sure.

I just started using Flickr so I can easily post photos to ebird. It's much easier than Photobucket and my Photobucket is messed up anyway.I can't get rid of that annoying visible code that shows up with the photo.
