Heck BN, even the chicken is a way cool photo. I don't need to say anything about the Albatross and Booby. Thanks Reilly. If you all need more mostly Wrens but also a white cat photo (right Darwin),

Reilly - We really enjoyed the Nene, very relaxed birds with very cool neck feathering. There were lots of Albatross and Boobies at the lighthouse on the north shore. And lots of tourists... ;-)

Here is a cool site for Gull identification. Heading up the west coast in a few weeks and trying to get the gull thing down.

I think Reilly has been working on gull ID's.

Said it before and will say it again...it's the thread that just keeps giving.

Best thread here ever. Seriously.

That isn't just any Boobie, that's a Red-Footed Boobie. I like that photo as the red feet are shown a bit. They mostly really tucked them up.

We were able to see all the Boobies at the beginning of nesting. White spots all over the cliff sides. Turning to our right, we could watch the Laysan Albatross doing their mating dance - clacking their bills at one another. I could have watched it all day!

Boobies.* Heh heh.




* All boobies shown are of age.

BN/CG still on for the sol cal trip later this month (29/30)? I'll be around and look forward to meeting up again although there is a chance I'll have a funeral to attend that weekend =( I'm just waiting for the date to be finalized.

Yes Callie, I chased that guy all over the place on 3 different attempts and still didn't get the perfect shot.

Matty - Very sorry to hear about a pending funeral.

We will definitely be there. We will be at the South Coast Botanic Gardens at 8:30am on Saturday the 29th. It opens at 9 but there is good trolling in the parking lot.

We'll also bird on Sunday, but haven't decided where. We could do as we did last year and figure it out over lunch on Saturday. PM me if you need my cell in case we don't see you on Sat and want to join us on Sunday (true for all).

Had a great time climbing down in the San Luis Valley, managed to do three new routes, 12b, 12a/b and a 11a. Plus got some birding in...never tired of looking at Sandhill Cranes.

Craig, it was seen yesterday. He is at the corner of Lemon Grove and Tangelo in Irvine, close to Irv. Valley College. Look in the Coral trees, especially in the pair of trees at the entrance to the resident parking area 30 yards from the corner. He also likes the flowering tree across the street from there.
I've been over there 3 times and seen him every time.
They don't want birders wandering between the apartment buildings but the bird prefers the street area anyway.

We camped at Corn Springs out in the Mojave se of Josh this weekend and on the way back stopped at the Living Desert in Palm Desert. Lot's of petroglyphs, some good birds and very, very quiet. It's also a potential spot for Elf Owls.
The Living Desert is awesome, a must visit and where the Abert's Towhees are a pretty sure thing.
