Honest mistake tho.

I bet Zulu is sad too. (Thanks for the correction). Sorry we don't have one of Shiloe.

one of the reasons I can tell it's not Shiloe, besides me knowing my Fids so well,
is, that is not my hand holding him, and the only person who could ever hold him without getting
bit is me

Oh, I believe you! I can identify what bird a tail feather came off of at my house. They are all that different to me.

It is BrassNuts hand in the photo.

Sorry you lost Shiloe, Cosmic.

Inspired to go out birding more after being lucky to see that pipit, I headed back to Yorba last weekend, and then for Veterans day, to Huntington Beach Central Park, and Bolsa Chica Beach. The park was very dry, but it was fun and I found some good birds.

This guy really wanted a big dead fish in the water, but did not want to get wet. Gave up after a while and flew off.
