Didn't get to go Carara National Park today, the wife had a few more things done at the dentist. More shots of urban birds.

On to San Gerardo de Dota tomorrow for some mountain birds.

I've got a few new ones. I finally got on a Seal Beach Naval Weapons Reserve trip with the San Berdoo Valley Audubon led by famous climber and climbing guide author Brad Singer. It was a who's who of Inland Empire birding hotties. Not all these are from the SBNWR but... 3 lifers for me, Pac.-Golden Plover, Nelson's Sparrow and Red Knot.

This one is for Tony. Pacific Golden Plover...finally!

So the little lady and I made it out to West Coast Falconry in Alpine to do their introductory Falconry class. Was really cool to see these Harris Hawks up close and personal. And I finally got some pics of my own to contribute since my crappy camera was able to get so close. Get out and try it if you get a chance, it's a little pricey at $75, but you might be able to get a Groupon/Zootravel deal like we did

From an email to Tony(sorry to be lazy):
I knew I couldn't stand to watch the whole game so I went for a longinish walk just before kickoff. Just a couple blocks down the street I heard a noise like a construction project, saw a pile of chips on the sidewalk and then looked up to see a Pileated Woodpecker excavating for bugs or a nest hole. I also saw it stand off a squirrel by extending its wings as the squirrel tried to get by the woodpecker to get down the trunk. I really really wish I had taken a photo of that. Think that creepy way cormorants look when they dry their wings. I got back just in time for Bruno Mars.

Earlier, I went up north to close-by Snohomish to look for a Gyrfalcon before the game today (in a car, that sort of hurts). I didn't see the falcon but it was finally a clear day and there were lots of Widgeons, a few N. Pintails and Trumpeter Swans, and (I'm guessing) literally tons of Snow Geese.

I traded the first half of the Superbowl for the following. I'm a Hawks fan, but I still think it was worth it.

Does any one know how the Klamath area refugee's are water wise this spring?

I am thinking of taking a trip from Monterey up the coast to Portland then back down through Bend to Klamath falls. This would be late March early April.

Will there still be any birds around?


Edit: Here is a great birding resource for Oregon birding. Click on any county and it gives lots of great info.

Q-ball, I'm going with Byelogolovoi Grif. What, you wanted the English?
Immature White-headed Griffon.

Don't know my Central Asian Anseriformes.

Reilly-

I believe that is it in Russian!

Cinereous Vulture and Ruddy Shellduck are the names I am familiar with.

Take care!
