Brassnuts I can't get over that Pileated on a Joshua tree. I've seen mountain bluebirds, cactus wrens and lh shrikes, maybe a flicker but had no idea a Pileated would be in that habitat.
As usual, great photos everyone.

That is amazing, a pileated woodpecker in J tree.

I have been trying to work up my Gull skill's this trip.

Here are some I took (all of the same bird) today in Port Orford Oregon.

I am thinking Glaucous Gull or maybe Glaucous winged gull. Got to be one or the other..

EDIT: Going with Glaucous Gull

Also saw a Greater white fronted goose mixed in with some Canadian's. They were a long ways away.

Yesterday was pretty much pouring all day from Cresent city to Brookings, all the birds hunkered down. I think I am to early for the migration up here. Thinking of heading for Klamath falls area to see if any snow geese and wintering stuff still might be there. Just the regular winter type passerine's so far. Did get a Bald eagle today but no photo.

And first for this trip.. Turkey

Up to 110.

Nice BN. I'm surprised you found it in a Joshua Tree. They usually like Spaghetti Trees...

Now that it is April 2, I can post a real bird photo ;-) Couldn't resist the Double Cross/Pileated idea as I walked by the route yesterday... Here's a real Josh bird pic from yesterday :-)

BN, pretty funny. Btw, that kinglet is a Cassin's Vireo. (Probably no relation between John and Ricardo Cassin)

Willoughby, you mean I did get trolled by BN?

And do you concur with Hansen's Glaucous? It looks like one to me.

Okay - I'm dying of laughter here in Boulder with BN's April Fool's day photo. I admit he hooked me for just a brief second before I split a gut!!

Nice vireo BN! It's a first, no?

edit: love the spaghetti harvest video - snort!

Trolled on the bird thread! Like Wil pointed it already - cassin's vireo. Eyeglasses - thick bill and lack of a strong black line in wing bars.
Usually folks stumble between Hutton's and rubies.
Ya got me brassnuts! Good troll.

Thanks for the Cassin's correction gents. A new bird for me, so that's cool :-). I thought the bolted Double Cross reference in the Pileated April fool's post would raise the eyebrows, but apparently a few regulars were still trolled, good fun :-)

Starting to see some bona fide movement up here in the hills. Here's a solitaire from two days ago, gobbling berries just before the snow started really coming down.

My resident Black Phoebe arrived a couple of days ago and is happily patrolling the grounds
and letting it be known that he is on the job!

Lots of Robins arrived yesterday in Boulder. Happy to see them return and hoping to see our favorite Robin we named Spot.

BN's joke post was especially funny as it was really unexpected...he reeled me in too!
