Pip-pip and good day, my Whatbirder mates!  After a jolly good pop-round to England, I'm ready to see more photos of birds you blokes have had a proper look at! 

Okay, enough of that crud.  Let's go right up the center of the country for this week's bird, 

Dickcissel!

Cheerio!

Thank you for doing this! And also for  keeping your bird of the week posts interesting and generally humorous! Usually puts a smile on my face!

I was at an outdoor tavern in South Africa. I look up and see this Barn Owl looking down on me. I point it out to the bartender while saying "Oh, a Barn Owl".  He says with this big grinning African smile, "Oh no, that's our Bar Owl, he eats the mice that come in here after closing".

I have not seen one in Florida yet. This is one is from 2015 in Colorado. It was seen in one of my favorite places to bird in Colorado: Chico Basin Ranch. This real working ranch allowed birders onto their property for a fee but with pretty much free rein. The bird here was great as the Eastern Plains can be pretty barren of food, water and shelter for birds and others creatures. The ranch had all these things and so became home to many year round birds but also a great lay over for migrants.
