Mmmmm, boobies.

My third to last good bird of the trip was this first year Ferruginous Hawk. It was right by the road, we were exiting Dinosaur Nat. Mon. via an obscure dirt road.

Berry nice Ferruginous, Dee!

There was a Nazca Bubby seen and photographed just off San Diego recently.
It seems it was just south of the border SO IT DIDN'T COUNT!

Reilly, I see they are still debating that booby, it was less than a full adult, a plumage that is poorly known in both Masked and Nazca, and the fact that it may be a hybrid are all topics being discussed.

I finally got my first OC Cattle Egret! It was an epic search.

I realized something kooky the other day. Lewis' Woodpecker has been called the "Crow Woodpecker," and Clark's Nutcracker has been called the "Woodpecker Crow."

Think Lewis and Clark were aware of this???

BIRDING ALERT


Is anyone going to be in SE AZ next week?

I'm going Sept. 4 or 5 for a few days and hitting several/many of the best spots. The weather should be ideal with some thunderstorm activity.

Drop all your responsibilities and meet me for a few days or whatever you can manage.


Also, Tony and I should be hitting a few of the best OC spots earlier in the week. Call me or e-mail me. 714-492-2159

^^ How awesome would that be? I wish I could go to SE AZ.

Nice Cyndie would have loved to seen a photo.

Nice bouldering session today followed by birding higher up in the hills.

Red Faced Warbler and Gray/Hammond's Flycatcher...I think.

Congrats on the Gray-cheeked Thrush Cyndie. That is a good one.

Bob, love the Red-faced Warbler. Let's hook up on the 7th and 8th, I have to be back on the 9th. Think about where would be our best choice. I will call.

I went out today after the Yellow-fronted Canary seen at Mile Square yesterday. It was seen "loosely associating" with a mixed flock of HOFI, AMGO, LEGO, SBMU (Scaly-breasted Munia aka Nutmeg Mannikin) and BRMA (Bronze Mannys). I found the flock and followed them around for quite a while. No Canary showed up.

More Bronze Mannys than I've seen at one time though.

Later I went to John Baca Pk. to look for the Solitary Sandpiper seen this morning. It is probably the same individual that was there last year. He was a no show. It was totally dead there but I did see what I took for a Cooper's Hawk, a fleeting glimpse. I hiked the path and worked my way back through the underbrush and when I arrived at the old Ovenbird area I saw him only 10 feet away with lunch.

I swung back by Mile Square for one last try on the Canary and it was very dead there as well. But, this other COHA did allow me to get very close.

nice photos Bob. Looks like you got yourself a Plumbeous Vireo there rather than an Empid fly.

Amazed to see how common Cooper's Hawks have become. I'm sure it has something to do with the spread of Eurasian Collared-Doves.

edit: wow Bob, those two photos really capture the essense of Cooper's and Accipiters in general. Your's too dee ee, eventhough you still can't give up chasing those POS birds.
