    I'd be careful to say that you shouldn't see them, but rather that it's far less likely than Swainson's. The map pins are people's reports this year in July. But colony farm is such a well-birded location by the region's top birders that I'd trust that frequency more than most places 

    Could be... Anyway all people who made last comments agreed on Swainson's.. So be it ?

    Both thrushes look fine for Swainson's in my opinion.

    Yeah, I agree with Swainson's now, sorry about that. I had forgotten about the Western "Russet Backed" Ssp.

    Thank you everyone!! ?

  3. Yesterday we walk in Stanley Park, BC, Canada and a squirrel came to us with a stone in its mouth. Initially we thought it stuck... but was not the case. Squirrel removed it easily and put back into the mouth... Came to us and went back to bush holding it..

    Any thoughts? Not really scientific explanation why squirrel do that in internet, but there were several mentioning of such behavior

    Oh, that's impressive! I also use a superzoom point and shoot, not a dslr. As you said, the zoom is great, but the autofocus is very slow, and the sharpness isn't great. It's a starter camera for me ( as I'm still a new birder), but i will( later this year) be getting my first dslr. 

    My current camera is a panasonic FZ-80, which i managed to get for $260!

    I even managed to drop mine and crack lenses... Dos not really affect anything as crack is on a side of the lens... But I was pretty devastated when it happened

    @Victor D, nice shots! what do you shoot with?

    Sorry for delay, IKLland

    I use P900 Nikon. Not DSLR.  It is just long zoom, but hard to get sharp picture, especially with zoom completely extended...After seeing other people pics I am not happy with results. Camera has certain limitation. Slow, AF is not accurate and fast, almost no chance to get bird in a fly....

    But thank you !!

    Looks good for a Purple to me! The shadows on the face did throw me off for a bit though.

    I agree with Purple, but do you have other shots?

    I also say it's a Purple.

    Thank you all, Yes, I have a couple more pictures. Hope it will help. Basically they are taken from the same angle though...
