Looks like the wings an Osprey would have, not sure though. I'm sure one of the "bird experts" around here will know though.

Dave Kos, male Hooded Oriole if west coast,or 1st Spring Orchard Oriole if east coast.

I love those guys. We had them nesting in our yard and hanging around (immatures) all year in So. Cal.

ps. they like fruit (sliced oranges) or hummingbird feeders.

Yes, General Turgidson, I'd agree with dee ee that your fountain bird is a Hooded Oriole.

Elcapinyoazz, the unfortunate ex-bird on the telephone pole looks like a Swainson's Hawk.

Ha! I'm not done yet.

One of the last we got on the trip was this little gem. M saw one first while she slipped away to (sandbag) pee. I went back solo to look down a class 3 ridgeline and couldn't find it. We went back together and our noisy boy tagged along to really make it hard. Miraculously we scored.

On the last page Reilly mentioned 'Earthflight' - I happened to catch Episode 1, North America, real nice. They will be replaying it tonight & a couple times over the next few of days, at least on my local PBS - you might want to check it out.

I couldn't ID the bird.

went out to the edge of La Amistad National Park today to play around with digiscoping. So, mostly things that sat still for a long time.

Lots of nice shots everybody, loving the OZ birdies of course! I've been up in the CO high country in recent weekends and saw a couple of interesting birds between 11k and 12k. Of course, I only had a landscape lens (40mm max), so these are seriously cropped...

A 3-toed Woodpecker at 11,400' in the Collegiate Peaks. Never seen one of these before, pretty cool. A pair of them were quite busy in the pines.

It has been raining a lot, hard to birdwatch in the rain. Here are a few shots from the last week.

We had a Sharp-shinned Hawk land on our Jeep in our yard the other evening. He was checking out the action at the bird feeders. Had to take shots through the double paned window.

I was out in the yard digging up a stump this morning and observed some Parrots landing on the wires one house over. I grabbed my scope, binos, camera and books and determined that they were mostly Lilac Crowned with two Red-lored Parrots mixed in. Note the yellow cheek and light blue crown. SCORE! Lifer.

OK, now I'm done with the Australian birds, and there are probably a couple repeats here. If anyone would like to see them in one place you are welcome to check out the "sets" on my Flicker site. Here is a link.
