I hate to be a downer, but this is on my mind today. On this day, 50 years ago, the last known Eskimo Curlew was shot in Barbados.

In happier news, we still got snipes...

Great evening grosbeak rodeo shot Wil. No snipe winnowing this weekend at nita and my's "not so secret lake" at the Lassen border but the sandhills where still making the rounds evening and early morning. And woodpeckers were off the hook: 3 or 4 pileateds, 20 to 30 white headeds, a few RB sapsuckers, hairys,downys, flickers and a lone black backed in camp.

Nice head shot dee ee

I can't help but think Werner's duck wants to sell me some insurance.

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.
