  1. Black-billed Cuckoo. It's hard enough to find one of these birds but I saw three of them in the same area this morning.

  9. I'm new here and wanted to share my bird experiences from the last few weeks. Two weeks ago on a Saturday evening I put the hummingbird and oriole feeders. I cut several oranges in half and put them out with grape jelly. The next morning I woke up to the sound of a male Baltimore Oriole at the feeder. Not long after some females arrived. After about three days I stopped counting the number orioles I had in our backyard. They eat up the grape jelly and oranges in a few days and so I make sure to keep the feeders full. The last week I noticed purple finches and gray catbirds going to the oriole feeder as well. The funniest thing I noticed are the orioles avoid the orange skins at all cost and eat around them. I hope to post some better images soon but they absolutely love this feeder.

  16. Sorry, West Coast gulls are all I have to offer ...but thanks for the comment. Apparently, gull experts are hard to come by! ?

  17. Would you mind posting some East-coast gulls for a change? Not that I could help with them either but they do seem slightly less complicated.

  20. Here is my AAR on our families Spring Break trip to Corpus Cristi (Padre Island). Stayed at the El Constante Condominiums from 5/14 to 5/19. Wife and kids were happy. Plenty of beautiful weather and all the beach they could want. 14 life birds for me. Most seen just driving around. On Mustang Island there are plenty of places to park on the west side of the island and walk around. We found a fenced off plover breeding area with many Wilson's and Piping plovers running around. You can also get photos like this: DSC06408r Long-billed Curlew and Whimbrel by Mark Ross, on Flickr This was taken out the window of my car car. The birds were perhaps 10 feet away. So no great accomplishment getting most of these birds. The only one I am proud of is this one my wife spotted by the side of the road driving to the National Seashore visitor's center. She made me stop and back up. I am glad she did. DSC05447r Upland Sandpiper by Mark Ross, on Flickr Here is my complete list of new birds: White-winged Dove, American Acovet, NT Cormorant, White-tailed Hawk, R Spoonbill, Scissortail flycatcher, LB Curlew, Whimbrel, W Plover, Reddish Egret, Sandwich Tern, Caracara, Upland Sandpiper, Great-tailed Grackle.
