That last one a Hawk or a Falcon, 10b? looks like a jet in the air.

Slater- Anytime you want to make the trip to Alaska I will be happy to show you around the Kenai Peninsula. We have a motorhome that doubles as a guest room too. That goes for any of you supertaco birders.

After I typed that 10B, I remembered the wing shape on Hawks/Falcons and realized I was way off. Cool looking birds.

Honestly, being soft or lacking quality is not something I see. I see bird. I love bird! Thanks for sharing! I wonder how many beautiful scenes we all don't get to see because they are soft to the ever-critical eye of the photographer. :) Seriously gorgeous bird.

Those tanagers and other Columbia gems are amazing.

Edit. Took Maysho and his significant other out today for some Chico birding and had a good look at our usual good summer locals; blue grosbeaks, kingbirds, orioles etc.. plus still had a lone canvasback and Clark's grebe hanging around.

Frik!!

That is gorgeous Bob! How is it that birds and tropical fish have colors that exist no where else? Simply miraculous.

I may have to invest in a Columbian bird book. My head may explode if so though.

My head has...:-).

Colombia is amazing...not just birding but the people and beauty of the place.

I'll lend you my book when I get back to Boulder...162 hummingbirds, 203 flycatchers and 141 tanagers. Crazy!

I'll get the book during the Bob D'A photo slide show on Columbian birds. Have you set a date yet? :)
