Having gone to all the countries several times in Central America I would say Panama would be a great choice, spend three days along Pipeline Road near the Canal and then drive north to David and Boquette.

Honduras is also great but a little on the rough side.


Just a few from me, doing more climbing and less birding lately.

I should have mentioned we've been to Costa Rica - that's why we thought somewhere else.

Belize and Panama both sound intriguing. Will do some reading and happy to hear anyone's additional thoughts! Thanks all!

Mystery bird, I thought Thornbill or Gerygone but my Aussie expert help says maybe a Robin of some sort.

My Aussie expert Mat Gilfedder tells me this is a Southern Whiteface, maybe slightly immature. After further scrutiny I believe he is correct. I think the bird in the post above is as well although different upper limit to the white face, maybe more immature. They were foraging together near the entrance of Mungo National Park.
Check it.

OK, forget what I said about shooting my wad.

Here are some more cool ones.

Galah, I needed to show the DEEP pink that these knuckleheads really display. The Aussies have a disdain for these guys often referring to dumb humans as Galahs. I don't think they are that dumb but they are common.

One more.

This species is one of my favorites. It is really one of the most beautiful birds we saw. We had many in the trees near the Murray River kinda' near Balranald.

little Z, yes, you're damn good! I can't remember what the first was but probably as you stated. It was the Moorhen's multi color legs that got me to take the shots.

Thanks for the Blue-faced Honeyeater photo Dee-ee. That is a spectacular bird and the photo looks even better using the click to enlarge feature.

Eastern Yellow Robin, "Miss Piggy". She would take food out of our hands at O'Reilly's.

Werribee (Sewage Treatment Area) near Melbourne is considered one of the 10 best birding spots (on most lists) in all of Australia. It was super windy and cold the day we were there but you don't really need to get out of the car. You do need a key to access the good ponds though which requires the presence of a local.

I am really enjoying the Australia bird photos. Thanks DeeEee.

Today at the Kenai Flats at high tide there was one lone Solitaire Sandpiper sleeping, until I was watching it.

Great photos Dee ee and Cyndie.

A few from my little hike today around Walden Ponds. Got a Green Heron which is a little out of the way for these birds. Cyndie...I also got a Solitary Sandpiper...cool little birds.

There are a couple rarities in the OC this weekend. We have a Ruff up on the Santa Ana River in Anaheim and a Little Blue Heron down at the Upper Newport Bay. I'm not sorry anymore that I missed the Ruff in LA a month or so ago.
They are still around.
