I was told to post it here.

Was also told there is no condor.

If nocondor than what?

Nochicken either.

I'm gonna call it a whitehead.

In Alaska they're more common than chickens. Up there we called 'em
White-headed Salmon Buzzards.

Oh, and Darwin, awesome anthropomorphism! ;-)

My Gullnivore update: I've added Black-tailed Gulls to my able-to-ID list.
What do you mean I'll prolly never see one?

BE PREPARED, YEE OF LITTLE FAITH!

Matty, almost time to go see 'our special boid', no?

The pigeons just gotta take to the air, though. I doubt they think about anything at all.
The pigeons are the blondes of the bird world, just having fun, unable to think of much else.

Dee ee. Great face shot on that white fronted. I agree, that 1923 quote on the WEGU that Tony posted is really great.

Next Thursday afternoon is my first of two Snow Goose Festival trips that I'm leading. The Thursday trip is a walk around Thermalito Afterbay. I can guarantee a Short Eared Owl.

Funny thing is most of the snow geese have moved on before the festival but I get to eat for free at the banquet. Debbie Shearwater is our guest speaker this year.

Today I went on a OC Wren search. The only one I have left is the Canyon Wren which is the hardest one to find in the county.

Cool double Wren shot :-)

CG and I would like to propose a SoCal Supertopo Birdapalooza for one or more days during the weekend of Friday March 28 - Sunday March 30. We'll be staying with friends in Palos Verdes which is always a fun birding area itself. It would be great to get some greater LA Tacos together for some birding and good times. Any takers? Suggested locations?

Cheers!

I would like to be in.

I'll go anywhere. I will probably be up on the OC. LA County is good but just let me know.

Hey dee ee. Where can I see cactus wren in O.C.? Back Bay maybe?..... I'll trade you one of my 2014 canyon for a cactus. I only know two reliable places in my county for winter wren.

though it's not in your county, head out to Eldorado Canyon,
the canyon wrens are common there!

Here is a decent source for birding festivals.

timid,
Yes, I went to Casper's first to a spot I thought was reliable and dipped. In the mid afternoon I went to the Back Bay. The spot is on the north shore where the bluffs rear up and the flood control channel heads out into the bay. There is an area with huge cactus patches on either side of a canyon. They were in the biggest patch.

What county are you in?
