One quick point. I had to remove the gap before 2013, e.g.

1) go to http://www.regulations.gov/#!home
2) enter FWS-R8-NWRS-2013-0036 in the box.
3) click "comment now"

to get it to work. Thanks for pointing me towards that, y'all.

Young female Golden Eye. There were 5 in the pond. I am wondering why they are still here.

Cyndie, send that Goldeneye my way!

Sunday I looked for one at San Joaquin and dipped on it.

That's some gorgeous fall color there, Cindie.

I rarely get close enough to a bird with my point and shoot to get a shot worth posting. Fortunately at Facelift I was working the banks of the Merced and this gal dropped by to feed next to my feet.

Mike, love the Hutton's! I also liked your comment about GBH's. I saw
one fly by my house the other day and we're about 5 miles from the San
Gabriel River. What was he thinking as he headed towards the mountains?

We arrived in Cairns yesterday and have managed to get out a bit after birding from the balcony of our room for a couple of hours. If the birding is this good in town, I can't imagine how good it will be when we get to the forests and Tablelands. It is good getting some study on the migrant shorebirds here before meeting up with the rest of our group. It is rather disorienting that the most abundant sandpipers are Sharp-tailed and their are numerous other species that only rarely make an appearance in California. The birds in town are pretty exotic. Here is a little sampling.

The biggest, baddest plovers are the Masked Lapwings. They chase anything that gets too close, especially if they have chicks.

When they really mean business, they deploy the spurs.

Dave,

I think that's a female Yellow Warbler. The yellow under the tail goes all the way to the end and it has an eye ring. I think that is absent on Orange-crowned, but I'm sands NA guides here in OZ.

wow - incredible stuff goes by so fast it is hard to follow.

The Prairie Falcon shots are great. The Lapwing spurs are amazing. I also would call that a yellow warbler.

Our biggest rarity that had the hotties in a frenzy was a Yellow-green Vireo. I saw it Monday but no photos. It was mega shy and flighty.

great stuff.

Wow! first dee ee, and now Tony in OZ. This is going to be great. What is your itinerary Tony?

The major part of Team eBird is in OZ right now, holed up in Alice Springs. They are working with the ozys to merge their big public on-line listing program (Eremaea Birds) with eBird. Been fun following their eBird postings, though it has been pretty limited so far as they are in meetings now. Heard they are going south after the meetings to look for the Plains Wanderer. Is that in the cards for you Tony?
