What beautiful birds, those Blue and Yellow Tanagers.

Beautiful Yellows!

You have to be correct, but the House Finch seemed to have an even more massive than normal bill.

I was in Sacramento last week visiting my parents. I took some photos of backyard birds, nothing exotic. I also went birding at the UC Davis Arboretum and got two new life birds, the herons.

I really like your singing house finch, Cindie.
Too bad we couldn't have talked about your family trip to Sacatomatoes. We could have met at Graylodge or gotten you up here to Chico for the best sewer ponds east of Arcata.

I was up at the high elevation limit of my county (Butte) yesterday (6-7,000ft.). Got dipped on my targeted n goshawk, brewer's sparrow, red crossbill and usually reliable black-backed woody habitat.

Lots of evening grosbeaks, w tanagers, dusky's, w w pee wees, olive sideds, white headed woodies, hermit and yellow rumped warblers and singing mt chickadees and cassin's finches everywhere made up for the dips.

Cyndie,

Did you get a new camera recently? Your photos are looking awesome.

Thanks Bob D'A, Timid TopRope and Darwin.

Timid it was just a fast five days in Sacramento with Portland on the weekends before and after to see my sons. I needed to check on the folks, they are getting older and I am the closest distance wise to them. I will be back sometime when I have more time and I would enjoy the Chico tour.

Darwin, no new camera. I have had the Canon SX50 HS for a while now. I was just closer to the birds being in a more urban setting.

So I go to the Bosque to look for warblers, out jumps a huge cat, I'm saying mountain lion about fifteen feet in front of me. He ran through the water and then looked back at me. I was a little stunned. I just love that place.

Big cat.

Boy, the International Doping Agency needs to check my Coop chicks for using
BGH - Bird Growth Hormones. They may not be here tomorrow...




But Mum still isn't taking anything for granted...

Uh-Oh, the Stinkeye!



UH-OH!!!


TAKE COVER!!!!!!

That was last night. This morning I went out for the paper and looked up
at the chicks in the nest. I didn't see Mum and only stood there for 30 seconds
when I heard a WHOOSH!!! as she mussed my hairdo from behind. No claws
though so I thanked her.

A group of us went paddling out on Thermalito Afterbay yesterday evening to visit the tricolored blackbird colony and toured the 3,000+ rookery of WF Ibis. I took a lot of photos of blue Ibis eggs in their nests.
Really awesome 3 mile paddle with many Forster's terns hitting the water all around us. The cacophony of noise from the Ibis made it feel like we were on another continent.

Great shots above you all!


I found a Orange-cheeked Waxbill today at HB Central Park, it only took 2 years. He would not come out of the grass and tree I saw him in, very shy.

Northern Waterthrush, gosh these guys are hard to photograph. I hear them all the time, but seeing one for more than a few seconds is difficult.

Bob, Cyndie, Ed, thanks for your contributions. I, like Bob, live for the daily influence. I can't tell you how much it means to me.

We had a good day at Carbon Cyn. with a Sea and Sage Group (54 species), but it is the "dead"/"slow" time of year.

I/We can't wait for the Sept. pickup.

Cummon' Fall migration!!!!

HELP WITH ID PLEASE!!

We had this bird at Carbon Cyn. yesterday. 2 ladies and I got bad photos. I'm thinking not a female Red-winged Blackbird or Brown-headed Cowbird. Looks something like a Rose-breasted Grosbeak but...
Check the white makings under the tail and white on wings, brown pattern on upper back, heavily streaked breast... Joyce's photo made the bill look light colored and thicker. I couldn't copy hers.
