Six or seven times in the last few years I have gone up to the western slope of Mauna Kea to look for the Palila.

Recently, I found a site with a map showing their distribution, and realized I have been looking at too low an elevation.

After having found this page showing the transects from 2014 and seeing the contour lines I see the best place to see them is around 8200 ft.

The latitude and longitude of the square is 155.38 to 155.28 and 19.52 to 19.23


I am going to try and get a good picture of a Palilia soon.


Full story below.

Thanks Dr. f...I get lucky every once in awhile. :-)


A few from the last few days. Scored a Scott's Oriole in southern NM but didn't get a good shot.

Tis the season for nesting! Below is a series of pics of a pair of Blue-gray Gnatcatchers primping up their nest in the Boulder foothills in May...

I went back about a week later expecting to see them sitting on some eggs, but unfortunately the nest was completely gone :-( My guess is a predator got the nest and likely the eggs as the nest was pretty close to the ground, bummer.

I have been doing a lot of mountain biking in the desert lately so here are few from around the house.

Cool shots John.

Great shots everyone!

We had a report of a Bronze Mannikin up at Craig Reg. Pk. in Yorba a couple weeks ago and I regretted not going up there. Everyone figured it was an escapee. Since then (day before yesterday) two more popped up about 5 minutes from where I live. Now there is speculation of a small So Cal population flocking with Nutmeg Mannies. I ran over there and found them pretty easily but could not get a photo, pretty skittish and hyper.

The same location turns out to be super good for Orange Bishops. I saw 3 males while looking for the Bronze Mannikins. A friend of mine saw 4 males and 4 females.

You can't see me!

Nice two dee ee.

Sorry you didn't catch my PM using nita's super topo account before my OC visit. At my brother's hotel at the Hyatt Regency above the Back Bay I was startled to get an unknown to me : a Pintailed Whyda right above some nutmeg mannikins. They may be parasitic nesters of mannikins.

Anyway too bad we didn't hook up. I had great birding in Santiago Creek, Hart Park, Irvine Park, Back Bay, Crystal Cove and Bolsa Chica. I saw your name all over the ebird range maps down there. I see you're #2 in OC for 2014. Keep it up.

I'll be back in Feb. for my brother's opening at the OC museum.
