In 2009, there was a Lazuli x Indigo hybrid in the same area (across the street at the Doudy Draw trailhead) where Curly now resides (he lives just over the bridge, on the left, at the South Mesa Trailhead). I didn't see the bird, but read about the confirmed sighting. That gives me more hope too!

Love Tobia's photo of the Martin nests. Really peaceful.

Good thing you got that photo of the flatirons this morning Bob- Everything is choked in smoke now. Brutal outside.

Gregory - RIP

So I go out to pick up the paper at the end of the driveway this morning
and as I bend over I see a couple of small grey clumps wafting across the
concrete. At first they look like fur but then I realize they are clumps
of down. Hmmmm...I look upwind but see nothing. I walk back towards the
front door about 35' away and then I see more floating down from above.
I look up into the Chinese Elm and see the perp. Ms Cooper is not pleased about
both being spotted and interrupted and let's me know about it as she flies
off to a more secluded repast site.

I say mockingbird.

For weeks I've been watching this tiny nest in the woods, just a few yards from the trail. First only a nest, with sometimes a small bird. Once I saw 4 little speckled eggs, when she was out.



Now there are 4 tiny chicks, being kept warm on a rainy day here.



Crimpergirl tells me she's an ovenbird.

Love your photos Larry. Weird morning here in the Boulder area, cool and cloudy. First thought it was from the fires south of us.


A few from today hike...had a few very good posers.

That's in our New Hampshire back yard. I'll try to get a picture of the chicks if I have a chance. Don't think they've opened their eyes yet, and they're being silent as if life depended on it.

Ovenbirds photos. Wow. They are checked off in my bird bird as having been seen in the spring migration; but I am too far south for a seasonal home.

I have been trying to find a Chuck-will's-widow and a Eastern Whip-poor-will nest for years.

Had to hike quite a ways for this guy.
Only one place in our county has the Black-chinned Sparrow.
