Mike, most excellent Red-shouldered! Indeed, he peered into the dark netherworld of my soul!

And, for the record, the Little Bunting is still packing them in up in
Humboldt. The well-heeled lot is flying in for the tick.

I saw a Great Horned Owl tonight as I drove home about 6:30PM. It was right on my road and flew to a nearby tree where I was able to spot it with a flashlight.

Annual Christmas bird count is ON at Conway Ranch! This is the heart of the Yolo weir bird sanctuary, west of Sacramento, a key stop on the Pacific Flyway migration path. Former rice paddies left flooded for migratory water fowl and them that go with them. Images courtesy of the Sacramento Bee. These are not my images.

WyoRockMan - very cool, assuming the bird was in Wyoming (and by looking at your photo) I'd say best bet is a leucistic House Finch. What were the other birds with it at the feeder? If you want, you can report your bird at the following link:

Crimpie, Wow! your secret Santa rocks.

dee ee - way to keep building that OC year list, 283 with a Pacific Golden-Plover. Congrats, looks like you've got a lock on the bronze medal for 2013.

Bob - will you be staying at the Savegre Mountain Lodge when you go to San Gerardo de Dota? It's a good choice for birding and photography. If you are, make sure to hook up with Marino Chacon there. Plus, while you're in San Jose, with the new highway Carara National Park is only about an hour away. Do a mangrove boat tour on the Tarcoles River if you get over there.

thanks to all the photographers for sharing your wonderful photos.

Little Z, I think we are going to stay at Cabinas El Quetzal for a few nights. Can I get to Carara by bus from San Jose??

Faceoff!

Missed this. I know they like chicken and scrambled eggs. Haven't tried giving them blood. :)

Since 1998, Sandy Komito's ABA Big Year record 748 has stood alone as the
biggest year in ABA history, but it looks like now he may need to share
the title. Massachusetts birder and ABA member Neil Hayward is currently
sitting at 745 species, plus 3 potential ABA firsts pending acceptance,
precisely the same number that Komito ended up with 15 years ago.

The bird that put him even was a Rustic Bunting visiting a feeder in
Homer, Alaska, and there are several options that might give him the
record outright. Hook-billed Kite in Texas, Great Skua in Virginia or
North Carolina, Ivory Gull in Newfoundland, or any other random vagrant
that could turn up in any corner of the US or Canada. In fact, he may need
a couple more birds to cover for records that may not pass muster. In any
case, Hayward is in full chase mode in the last week of the year, and
we're all rooting for him. Records are made to be broken, after all.

You can follow along with Neil's final push at his entertaining blog, The Accidental Big Year.



Dude must be independently wealthy, n'est ce pas?

And, Wyoming Rok man, I would say yes to a leucistic House Finch.
