  3. Ecuador trip report - August 2017

    great report, beautiful photos! i very much enjoyed reading this.
  4. it's not a Corella, a Corella would have a much smaller and slender bill, and bare bluish patches around its eyes. your picture doesn't show the crest, but the bill shape is more like an Umbrella or one of the Sulphur-crested cockatoos

    you have a job now? now you will find out that rare birds hardly ever show up on your day off
  6. i just can't figure out what this is. (Gray Vireo? bill seems wrong. Gray Flycatcher? too much eyering). and the only pic i got of its back is blurry. also, i don't even remember exactly where it was, but somewhere between Florida Canyon and Madera Canyon (southeast Arizona).
  7. What are the Best Birding Places in the USA?

    it depends on what you mean by best. most species? most varied habitat? most enjoyable hiking and/or weather? most chance of rarities? and of course much depends on what time of year you want to go. according to ebird, the top 10 hotspots in United States are these (for most species ever) 1. Aransas NWR (CTC 037) (Aransas Co.) 2. Cape Island--CMP (Cape May Point) 3. Hayward Regional Shoreline 4. Plum Island 5. Cape Island--CMPSP (Cape May Point SP) 6. Parker River NWR 7. Bosque del Apache NWR 8. Cape Island (Cape May Co. south of the Cape May canal) 9. Laguna Atascosa NWR (LTC 024) 10. Sandy Hook

    well that certainly doesn't happen too often! i thought for sure that if you went to see it, you would be out there climbing on the rocks to get a picture.

    Surf Scoters
  15. SEAZ quick trip

    ok there's the Becard directions, when you get to the spot the sign is also posted on the tree about which branches to look for. this place is pretty shady so you can save it for the afternoon if you want. you really should do Florida canyon in the morning cause it is less shady. and so both nights (Thurs and Fri) i tried to head to Madera Canyon for the Elf Owls. and both night just after 7pm there was a torrential downpour and Thurs night also had lots of lightning!
