    A Scrub Jay (Aphelocoma coerulescens) today - a very common bird at my feeder. Other birds scatter when it appears.

    Brown Pelican again. I took some closeup shots of him and will post later (when my batteries recharge for the Nikon). I was able to get less than 2 feet away from this one.

    I think it is a Jack Daw.
    Big black bird with a tail that fans out into a vee shape. Loud, harsh squawk.

    It is certainly harassing the cat.

    I saw a dodo- he sits next to me every day. :)
    Seriously, I have a couple of mallards wandering around my backyard.

    Yeah, I have pretty lax on my bird watching and reporting this last week, as our scientific funding requests are due next Monday. Got mine completed and shipped off and get to relax a couple of weeks before heading to Alaska.

    This morning I saw the remainder of this seasons Tufted Puffin (Fatercula cirrhata) nesting on the cliffs of rocks out in the Ocean. Beautiful birds!

    I saw a meadowlark as it hit my windshield. I was going ~70mph. I hate it when it happens. On a bright note, I spotted a red tail hawk.

    i used to be MartyVA (until i forgot my password and dropped the net at home)---new trees--plant at least one a year for my deceased daughter. A second weeping mulberry (a nasty tree the wife likes), a weeping Katsura, Contorted crabapple, weeping Redbud, weeping Bald Cypress, Hibiscus tree and of course the 8 species of bamboo. Two bluebirds this morning .....a pretty song:D

    We have been having a Townsend's Solitaire visit our birdbath, that I can easily view from indoors, daily. We live in Lakewood, Colorado. :grin:

    This guy got into my small (10'x10') office today. He has been hanging around for about an hour and refuses to come down below the gridwork so that he can escape through the open door. I hope he doesn't hurt himself, he seems quite agitated. I wouldn't know he was even in here with me if I hadn't been working on the computer and heard the plop of some of his "debris" landing next to me on the paper I was looking at. :(
