Dee Ee, Varied Thrushes are quite common. I hear them daily and see them most days, but getting a good photo is another thing.
Thanks all.

Great BIF shots Chewy! Nice to see an Alaskan hummer Cyndie, very cool.

I love all the nesting activity this time of year. Various birds have such different nest building styles. While the House Wren uses an aggressive most anything will work style...

The Bell's Vireo carefully integrates spider web for a comfortable and robust nest, pretty cool...

Watched a pair of Chipping Sparrows sitting on their nest of 4 eggs up in Wyoming last week and also saw 3 babies hatch - pretty cool but the nest was so well buried in a Sagebrush that no photos were possible.

Beautiful shots everyone.

Went up Mauna Kea again with a Guide to Hakalau NWR.

Its the only way you can get into the section of forest where the rarest birds are.

Got these two on the way up.
