Tony,

Incredible tiger heron photos!

I'm loving all the cactus wren shots, too. When I lived in Joshua Tree, those little guys would almost sit in my hand when I was filling the bird feeder--so darn friendly.

Rough week, lost our 13 year blind Basset Hound and then call my mom on Saturday, she sounded great and got a call from sister to tell she passed away from heart failure on Sunday.

Took a drive up in the mountain today with my wife, daughter and grandson to look at birds.

Here are a few from today.

My condolences to you Bob D. I've been through both of those but not at the same time. Evening grosbeaks are one of my favorites.

Bob,

Sorry to hear about your loss. My dad passed away about four years ago and I still think about him almost every day, usually in a way that makes me feel good.

I met you back in the day at the New. I was climbing with the Charlottesville crew then. I really like the routes you made that I've done. Bullet the New Sky is one of my favorites routes ever.

Here's a couple of photos of a Red Tailed Comet from today:

Thanks everyone, when I talked to her last I told I loved her and that her and my dad were great and loving parents. That was my last words to her and her to me that she loved me.

Bob,

very sorry to hear of your loss. Loving parents are life's greatest gift. Glad to hear that your last words to each other were good ones. Tougher still to lose an old compadre on top of that.
