Went to visit our bird this past Wednesday Reilly...no dice...the original suspect "nest" was still there but well hidden so you must missed it...not that it seems to have made a difference anyway =(


someday though...

Gray Hawk, Spotted Owl, very cool! No surfing in Kauai for us - most of the water was a little too rough for us surfing noobs... Here are a few more Kauai birdies for a snowy morning in Boulder.

Slater - the surf was fierce when we were there. Many beaches were closed to swimming. One (where the Na Pali Trail starts) allowed people in to their thighs but no snorkeling was allowed. We stayed on the south side (Kalaheo) and the north side (Princeville) but drove all over the place.

Brassnuts posted some of the bird photos here. If you are interested in the other trip photos (including the ocean shots), they are on the blog: www.daveandcallie.blogspot.com.

LOVE the tufted duck! I've not seen one.

We were watching the Tiger Doves and I said "I wonder if that is a parent and youngster?" As I finished the sentence, the birds removed any doubt....they were a definitely a pair. :)

these are in the same genus as our kingbirds (Tyrannus) and they are real tyrants when it comes to defending their realm, they'll chase any other bird, big or little, if it invades their territory.

Thanks Q-Ball - I have some reading to do. Beautiful birds for sure. I saw you called them 'Great Greens' above - thought you were stating the obvious and not their names. :)

edit: Like how the wiki page say it's commonly confused with the smaller Military Macaw. I was with that crowd!

Brass, sounds like you were there during a big storm. I've spent two winters there. That place is magical. Hanalei is like something out of a dream.
Wish I had been into birding then... then again, glad I wasn't! I surfed my brains out! Great shots man.

TEXAS QUESTION!!!! (Bob maybe you are the expert here)

Can I do High Island area, THEN drive to Aransas, then down the coast to BROWNSVILLE and Santa Ana/Sabal Palm with 5 days? I realize it is 500 miles. Should I just stay in the High Island area??? I get itchy feet and don't mind driving because I can bird while I drive, and the Rio Grande... hate to miss it. My plan was to fly in to HOUSTON, rent a car, drive and bird, then fly out of McALLEN.

And no... 5 days is all I got (two kids back home!). Opinions???

Thanks! Not going until NEXT spring, but trying to do my HW> THanks!

I love the ears on that Striped Owl. Reminds me of the antennae on giant moths. So beautiful!

edit: sounds fun, but a fair amount of driving Slater. Totally doable. I grew up in Houston and my parents live in Liverpool (near the coast). Keep us informed about how your trip shakes out. If I'm in the area, I'd love to hit some of those spots!
