Tony, pure awesomeness! Interesting that New Guinea Woodcock nests off the
ground. And Bowerbirds? I know, life isn't fair. Too bad some little kid
is missing his hand grenade.

Wow Tony! thanks for taking the time to send us poor earth-bound folks those great photos so our imaginations can soar. Well worth the wait. Did you get to hear the Superb Lyrebird sing? their tails are pretty superb, but their song is even more superb. Raggiana Bird-of-Paradise! now there are some folks who really know how to pick a national bird. Good luck in kiwi-land, and enjoy those pelagics.

I'll predict Dave's next fantastic warbler (starting to run out of choices!) - Worm-eating.

Beautiful Song Sparrow and a lovely Northern Pintail.

first winter White Crowned(?), although I tried to turn it into a lot of other birds. In the sun the crown looked much more rufous.

And just one more in celebration of the sun that is supposed to go away for good in a little over 24 hours. (edit: not really for good, but a weather system is moving in)

Had a really beautiful morning out at Walden Ponds this morning.

Here are a few.

Heading to Bosque del Apache tonight for three days. Should be great birding.

Weíre now at the Christchurch airport on our way home from the last leg of our trip. I finally have sufficient bandwidth to post some more photos from the last part of the Australia and from New Zealand. We did see both Lyrebirds and also heard them, but in each case they were far off, so we didnít get the full experience. These are the largest and second largest passerines in the world.

As dee ee reported, the Crimson Rosellas and Australian King-parrots at OíReillyís were quite friendly. They were remarkably gentle in landing and perching on us. My expression resulted from trying to focus the camera, not fear. Really.

It took a lot of tries to get the fanned tail of this Rufous Fantail.

Dave probably saw this Satin Bowerbird bower. They prefer blue objects to decorate.

We were lucky to see a Koala in the wild as well as several up close in a rehab facility near Brisbane.

This Tawny Frogmouth with chick was pretty cute.

I was amazed to find out that kingfishers, including Kookabarras, use termite nests to nest in.

Once again, thanks, y'all.

What can you say about Tony's and Mike's exotics but: Awesome!
Rufous Fantail fanning and Lyrebirds!!!, and the Frogmouths get to me.

I didn't realize Hoopoes has such a huge range. Is it one species? Falcon shot, and ... !!!

I have to admit that I've always had a disproportionate fondness for the California Towhee, partly because they just plain refuse to come up here.They hang around human habitation, but I don't see them scavenging around eateries and such. And their understated elegance gets to me.

Nice photo of the Northern Shrike. It seems unfair that they are not more common here in Seattle.
