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!

I am definitely in!

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?

I also saw Cactus Wrens at Caspers Wilderness Park in OC. One of them might have been this one in Riley's great shot of one covered with juice from a Prickly Pear fruit.

No pics but there is an absolute invasion of Snowy Owls in southern Vermont right now. One flew into my windshield the other night and I was heartbroken. Seen five since then.

Hey dee ee. nita and I live in Chico, Butte County. We just got back from scoping out my upcoming Thursday bird trip at Thermalito Afterbay, closer to Oroville. 2 Burrowing Owls, 4 if not 5 short eared owls, about ten bald and 3 golden eagles. I hope they all cooperate on Thursday for me.

I grew up in Orange and know many of the local spots from returning for family visits. Love Bolsa Chica, Back Bay, the duck ponds near Jamboree, Tucker in Modjeska and Crystal Cove-Laguna Wilderness. I mainly bird hart park when visiting my dad.

All our trips are sold out already but I can deputize you as a co-leader if you want to drive 500 miles and sleep on our futon.

I didn't get any photos of birds today but got some decent shots on my point and shoot of some pintails last week.
