  1. Maui in December

    Thank you so much! I'll email the Nature Conservancy and see if there's any way to enter the preserve outside the regular tour day.
  2. Maui in December

    Hi, I'll be in Maui, Hawaii for almost 2 weeks in December. Since online resources regarding birding on the island are limited, I'm hoping a few people here have birded the island before. A few questions: 1. Is there access to the Kealia and Kanaha Ponds themselves (not the boardwalk / viewing platform)? Is access restricted? 2. What's the best way to get access to Waikamoi Preserve? I won't be there on the day of their monthly tour, unfortunately. Is there any chance of getting access outside of that day? I've seen a good number of eBird checklists submitted outside of their monthly tour date. 3. What's the best way to get offshore in hopes of pelagics? Whale watching? Ferry to Lanai? Thanks, Cole
  3. Ebird Unusual Checklists/Hotspots

    This a common occurrence that unfortunately cruise ships couldn't care less about. Cruise ships in the southern southern hemisphere have crews use large brooms to sweep hundreds of dead birds overboard every morning.
  4. Bad photo quality, but looks good for White Wagtail (Himalayan).

    Dusky Warbler in Los Angeles now. Good week for Asian stuff in Cali. http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S39457835

    Here's a few pics of mine from the last few weeks. I haven't taken the time to edit them practically at all. Also, congrats to all in the LA area that've chased the LOWA. ^2nd county record

    Speaking of Lark Sparrows, there was one found on Bermuda today. Crazy record for an island with a ton of just insane records.
  9. Whatbird's Young Birders!

    There was a CRPL found there yesterday. Not sure if it was the same bird there a few weeks ago. You anywhere near it?
  10. Western-wood Pewee???

    Yup. Nice shot!
  11. What is your 3 Best Lifers?

    Siberian Accentor (7th Canada record), Red-flanked Bluetail (2nd Canada record), and I dunno, maybe BBSA just because I got to photograph 4 of them from 3 ft away last summer.
  12. For BC (and life), I still need Black-footed Albatross, Canyon Wren, Flammulated Owl, and most NE BC species (eastern stuff). For the ABA, I still need all the SE pine forest species such as Pine Warbler, Brown-headed Nuthatch, etc.

    The RECR split can go a lot farther. There are currently 28 ssp (according to eBird) of RECR across the Northern Hemisphere, and many populations outside NA need more study. Da Lat RECR (Southern Vietnamese ssp.):

    A few good bird-related articles from recently: Australian nude sunbather injured after White-bellied Sea-Eagle mistakes testicles for turtle eggs University warns students of aggressive Grackles on campus Around gracks, never relax. And on a more serious note, the Bogota Sunangel, a 'species' known from a single specimen that was collected over a century ago, was actually a hybrid (paper released June 14). http://biorxiv.org/content/biorxiv/early/2017/06/14/149898.full.pdf
