Not surprisingly, that's called a Hummingbird Moth! Cool critter.

I went to Anchorage yesterday for some Costco shopping and I thought I would check out the bird sightings. I lucked out and made a quick stop to see an immature Lazuli Bunting at a newly opened wetland area. The bird was very cooperative and hung out about 25 in front of the platform for a good 10 minutes while I was there. It is a new Alaska bird for me.

I had a pretty good birding day starting with the continuing Wilson's Snipe (lifer) at San Joaquin at 7:30 am (sorry about the bad and edited photo below)and this Mandarin Duck (above, county year list, not a bad photo!) above at 12:30 pm at Yorba Regional Pk.

How was that Mandarin a lifer? Surely it wasn't wild, was it?

Reilly, the Mandarin wasn't a lifer, as I stated above, but yes it is wild.

It got pretty nervous when my dog Xena (warrior princess) and I came walking along! I knew it would be an easy find.


Thanks Cyndie! I know, they are exceptionally beautiful aren't they(?), and what's up with the weird "fins?" Is that part of the wings, tail or what?

Man, I love hummingbirds. Here are a couple from HB Mile Square Pk. Allen's are sweet even without the iridescence. They (about 6) were fighting over one flowering plant.

Yes, I birded 3 different widely spaced places in the OC today.


edit: corrected for Allen's, note the rufous wash.
