I spotted this screech owl driving out of my pal's farm yesterday after a Thanksgiving feast. I apologize for the quality of the shot. The old truck rattles and shakes a bit, almost as much as me.

Mystery birds, mistreating a misty tree? Thanksgiving morning out on the porch just drinking coffee and smoking tea, these four birds came up to me. Take me, and me, and me and me.

I birded a couple times in Riverside and San Bernardino County last week. I saw a total of 4 different Vermilion Flycatchers. Here are two of them, I didn't get a pic of the brightest one.

This one at the San Jacinto Wildlife Area.

excellent photos on this page of posts, sad to see it go, but look forward to the next amazing batch...

Just got back from a birding trip to Puerto Rico. We got all 16 endemics, including the Puerto Rican Parrot. Probably the rarest bird I've ever seen, with fewer than 100 individuals in the wild. We had 133 species in 6 days, many of which were introduced species (like the Red-crowned Parrot above from 10b4me). Hope to post some bird photos from our group, when I get some to share. Had a great guide, Alcides Morrales, if anyone ever has the need.

Here's a digiscoped Neotropic Cormorant breaking into its breeding finery (this was in Costa Rica a few days ago).

And one of the many Mouflon Sheep that are slowly destroying the habitat for the Pallila. A rare Hawaiian bird I have only seen once in six tries over the last 4 or 5 years. There are less than 2000 left.

It seems that all I can do is to wish for results and simply to compose,

But "The journey is the destination," and, like a migratory bird, I try to "Go where the climate suits my clothes," given my equipment and dirty sensor.

Anyone want to buy my camera? After looking at all the great pictures on this thread I'm wasting my time.

Great shots everybody, including some cool stuff from afar and some nice BIF shots! We haven't had any time to chase birds lately, but we did see this Streak-breasted Snow Chiseler in the backyard the other day ;-)
