  1. The downslurred “ahhh” calls that can be heard throughout the recording. Seemed to be coming from somewhere high up in a tree. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/613679843
  2. Haven’t gotten a picture of these with my new body or lens. I still like this one quite a bit.
  3. This Golden-crowned Sparrow was nabbing bits of Pride of Madeira leaf and appeared to be eating them. I'd love to hear thoughts from others who have seen similar behavior from both this species and others. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/613567019
  4. big three are Black-bellied Plovers little guys are mostly dunlin with what are probably western mixed in there. 1 definite dunlin on the left with it's bill out
  5. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/613541136 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/613541139
  6. 1. California? looks kinda weird but I think that might be from it's position 2. Olympic 3.Olympic 4.Oylmpic (or maybe pure GW? I'm not very good at differentiating the two) 5. Olympic
  7. House Finches are so unreasonably skittish 😫 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/613465977
  8. https://wildlife.org/for-fire-dependent-woodpeckers-megafires-are-too-intense/
  9. Again a very specific type of burn and there was a study that showed that even they couldn’t inhabit the hundreds of miles of intensely scorched and desolate terrain

  12. Quite challenging lighting conditions today, and super quite bird wise. Still the always reliable Juncos and Chickadees are around. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/613443022 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/613443019 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/613443017
  13. I once said that Song Sparrows are my favorite sparrow but DEJUs certainly give them a run for their money. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/613329964
  14. definitely not typical Zonotrichia habitat, but I actually had a ton of WCSPs in the tules nearby
  15. Fun trip, lots of nice pictures. The huge snowstorm on the sixth would have to be the highlight. Would definitely want to visit in the summer but summer and skiing generally don’t go well together. https://ebird.org/tripreport/193271
  16. When looking for male birds don’t pay attention to the white one the face, instead look for the extent of black on the flanks. Very white in Common Goldeneye, distinctly pied with a black spur in Barrows, this is most useful in poor conditions at extreme distances.
