Wow, beautiful shots above you guys!

I had a good find today at Tucker, not a lifer or county year bird though. I found a rare "Taiga" (red) subspecies of Fox Sparrow. Not a great photo, a motorcyclist scared it away. I think Doug Willick said we get maybe 2 a year in Orange County.

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.

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.
