Callie - I think ibird is the best overall app, but it does not interface with ebirds. I also have the audubon bird app which will access ebird, and that's about the only feature I use it for, it was an extra few bucks to buy both apps but having both of them is handy. I found all my bird apps on sale for less than $5 each, they seem to be on sale at least a few times a year.

EDIT: I never post photos or sightings to ebird, just use it to check out what other peoples sightings are. I'm a total freeloader...=)

Ah. Thanks for the clarification. I currently have Sibley's Guide on my Droid which is cool. I guess I need to simply access the ebird website on the droid as well.

My dream app is one that lists by voice. That is, I can speak into the phone and say "Blue Grosbeak" and it understands and puts it on a list. I tried it with my grocery list app, but it definitely doesn't know bird names!

I want one that will listen to the bird songs and tell me what they are so I can find those lifers faster!

Yes....bird call recognition would be sweet but way too easy.


Hmm...I'm not sure I can post photos from Flickr to here. Does anyone do that?

From today, looking for Virginia Rails, found this OB.

Birders had reported a Black Tern at Juanita Beach in Kirkland WA, and I made an unusual for me driving trip in the Seattle area to go see it.

It was a stormy day, but I quickly picked out the characteristic flight of an uncharacteristically dark tern far across the bay. Terns in general aren't that common around in Seattle, and I myself have only seen Caspians around here. The sight of this ones flight in the wind and rain really filled me with joy and reminded me of commonly seeing other terns in the Bay Area and Arctic.


Here are a couple photos from the next day when the weather improved. It looked much much larger and more powerful flying than sitting.

I had to to leave for Bay Area for unpleasant chores that very day, but Tony took me out to Yolo Bypass to see White Faced Ibises (sorry no photos). That is a llifer for me, at least since I've been paying attention. We apparently just missed Blue Grosbeaks. I hope Tony gets a chance to go out there again and see them.

Bob D'A:

great photos, looks like you're pretty settled in there in Colorado. Think that warbler upthread might be a female MacGillivray's (well marked white "eyelids")?

Darwin:

nice find with that Black Tern, they are so elegant. We hardly ever get to see them in their black breeding plumage down here in Costa Rica where they are mostly pelagic.

Agreed Little Z. MacGillvray's Warbler. Been seeing a lot of them in the Boulder area the last week or so. Tons in Gregory Canyon. I'm still trying to see the male Rose-Breasted Grosbeak there. Saw the female. Heard the male. Want to see the male!

Fifteen-year-old photographer Marlin Shank was fortunate enough to capture
several images of a rare albino Ruby-throated hummingbird while in a park in
Staunton , Va

I've seen an albino Yellow-rumped Warbler. But the hummer is way cooler.

Love the red-faced warbler! I have never seen one.

I went for a drive after dinner tonight. Saw some wildlife.
