Dave... I'm thinking Sora. Really great spending time with you. I made it out of the storm area in the afternoon Monday...pretty crazy.

Dirt C - wow, those are some powerful owls!

congrats on your trip to AZ Bob and Dave. Sounds like it was a great time and looks like you went to all the right places. Looking forward to seeing you down here in Oct. Bob.

Yes Reilly, that crossbill has like a trophy sized bill.

Nice Sora-duck too.

Edit: looked closer at the red bird, and that would be a Hepatic Tanager manipulating something in it's bill. oops.

It is a hepatic, one of several that we saw. Also thinking we saw a Scarlet Tanager but if I can't tell the difference between a duck and Sora..who knows. :-)

Looking forward to the CR trip...just took a job back in Taos, way to hot for me in the desert.

Dave is a great guy to bird and hang out with. We had a lot of fun.

Bob, that Sora tricked us by landing in the water! I have never seen a rail swimming. At that distance and in that lighting I sure couldn't tell. When I edited the photo it was obvious. Telephotos are pretty amazing.

Here are a few from the trip. I cleaned up on hummers.

Sounds like an epic trip guys. Water in the desert was crazy.

Dave, really like that broad-bill photo.

Edit - I saw a couple of Bronze Mannys in the yard with flock of Gold Finches. They seem to be getting around.

Great photos Dave, here are few more from our trip. Mostly cloudy and gray made for some less than stellar conditions.

The female Blue Grosbeaks threw me for a loop until the last couple days.

HMOG D and B! Nice photos. I soooo wanted to see a Lucifer the first time I went to Tucson, and you went and got the best photo ever.

Dee ee, where were you between Dec '08 and Dec '10?? Kinda crazy to think this thread has had a few long fallow periods since its inception.
