    A couple of favs from the last couple of days... White-eyed Vireo ~ It took me more than a year to even get a picture of them, so I'm still excited when I get one LOL WEVI09082017 by Michelle Summers, on Flickr Yellow Warbler in the elephant ears. My inner artist loves this shot LOL YEWA09082017-2 by Michelle Summers, on Flickr Bell's Vireo ~ Not a great shot, but the best shot I've ever gotten of one, and it was a new yard/county bird too BEVI09072017 by Michelle Summers, on Flickr

    (As many of you have heard) Early Sunday morning I went out on my first trip specifically aimed at forming my two little brothers' life lists, so I was heavily focusing on pointing out the common and easy to see birds. It was a slow morning overall, but ironically our first somewhat cooperative bird ended up being a Tropical Kingbird (!!!), which flew in from the southeast, perched vocalizing for at least 3 minutes, and then took off flying directly over our heads and resuming it's apparent northwesterly flight. The recordings I obtained in that time confirm it's ID as a first state record Tropical Kingbird! My brothers sure started out as insanely lucky birders. I just submitted a formal report to the Colorado Bird Records Committee and If accepted, it will become Colorado's 503rd state bird! Somehow the state managed to get both a Thick-billed and a Couch's Kingbird before anyone recorded this one. http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S39234794

    From the near-sea mountains of Pacific Mexico- An Emerald Toucanet. I was searching and searching for new birds to shoot when this one almost landed on my head. Totally unexpected, had never even heard of a Toucanet before. One shot and it was gone for good. Never saw another one.

    here on earth anyway. 12 years ago my wife Debbie, was given a 5% chance of being alive in 6 months. Debbie says "time to gather our resources and go see the world, the world we had worked 24/7 and saved to see from the time we were married in 1995. While in Africa, where we experienced 5 different safaries, we found ourselves on one side of the Landrover looking at the beautiful birds . The rest of the group would be on the other side of the vehicle frothing over the lions and elephants etc; That was when we both knew we were hooked on birding. We traveled Costa Rica, Galapagos, The Amazon, the Arctic Circle, well, you get the picture. We even wrote and published 2 books, which she took many of the photos for. Donated the profits to cancer research. I want to thank Whatbird and the people that contribute to this wonderful site. Through all the time in surgeries, chemos and a billion trips to the doctor, you were there for me. This website gave me that "something to do" that I needed to get me along. Following are a couple of pictures of me and Debbie flying over Victoria Falls, Africa, in an ultralite. As I watched Debbie take her last breath, my mind was flooded with the most awesome memories anyone could possibly imagine.

    Best for today, also the best I've ever taken of a White-breasted Nuthatch. It was at the bird bath drinking so it actually sat still for more than .05 seconds (which seems to be the maximum for them)!! IMG_9813-001 by Wayne J Smith, on Flickr
