Such a good thread, and if you blink you're on another good page.
Giant Coot, what like 2' tall? ;-) OK, it's on this page

Tony's from the previous page. flying King Eiders, lord it over us Tony!
Kenai Flats as a reminder to me of days gone by, and all the rest.

OK, It's not a bird and better belongs in another thread, but I feel like a free loader and there is a flying animal it the photo. It's been a good year for bees here in town. Tangentially, Laurel and I have had a couple good nights out on the deck watching more bats than I recall seeing before.

I had to whistle at him to get him to look at the camera. He was busy picking at his feathers.

Instead of waking up to the usual morning sounds of Brown Jays, Melodious Blackbirds, Inca Doves, Hoffmann's Woodpeckers and Rufous-tailed Hummingbirds, this morning it was Stellar's Jays, Chestnut-backed Chicakadees, Red-breasted Nuthatch, Northern Flicker and Anna's Hummingbird. At least the sound of Vaux's Swifts was still the same.

Darwin, dude? PM me with a plan. I have to go out to Sequim to visit my cousin one day this coming weekend, and have tickets for the Mariners game on Monday, otherwise no commitments.

Some hard core dude up in Arcata saw a Green Sandpiper. They haven't been
able to relocate it so despite this guy's bona fides it doesn't appear that
we will officially 'get' a first conterminous US record. He didn't get any
pics of it and despite hearing it quite well he has doubts based on leg color
that it could be a hybrid. Bummer, what a score that woulda been!

Dee, my condolences. What did you do to deserve Barstow?

Thanks Reilly, it's the evil called work.

But now I am off in search of Harlequin Ducks, Gray Jays etc!.....in about 60 minutes.

Soldotna to Homer and back...a day looking for and at birds. It was overcast and at times rainy and windy. But any day is a good day to bird.

FACT: if you band birds long enough, eventually a sapsucker will fly up and land on your hat. And stay there.

I promise I didn't place this bird on my head. Strictly of its own volition. Craziest thing!
