Gary, I am so enamored of your pheasant, I had to save a copy…well cropped. In the pic you posted, one just can’t see all the beautiful detail. I’d love to send you the cropped photo (where the bird fills the whole frame)…or I’d be happy to post the pic, and give you kudos. I’d hate to have people miss such a colorful bird!!!
Thanks for adding me as a friend. I have often viewed your blogs on COBIRDS. You may not some of our recent posts including Yellow-throated Vireo, Black-throated Gray, Parula, and N Waterthrush at the Alamosa Cemetery. We also had a Dunlin on S River Road.
Thank you for the welcome. I'm pretty new to birding - first I got a field guide, then some binoculars, and now I'm stalking birds with a camera. This site has already been so helpful to me! Thank you!
Hi Gary, Thank you for your welcome. I've been birding for a few years now. I try to keep a close watch on Lowell Ponds SWA, and Rocky Mountain Lake and Berkeley parks in Denver. If you've seen my last post on cobrders, I left off my ideas on the perching bird. It may be a Macgillivray's Walber or a Yellow-breasted Chat. Which would be more likely?
Gary, new to this blogging stuff. Posted what I believe is the complete list of what we saw yesterday. As to photos, I will have to see if my daughter will be generous enough to once again walk us through the process,
Yes, it is a state park along the CO river here in Grand Junction...
So far I've seen osprey, horned owl, gambel's quail, american coot (my guess), american wigeon (again, my guess), a few different heron, I heard there are egret there, hawks (not sure what kind), eagles (haven't seen one yet, but they are known to be along the river), mallards, canadian geese, and the like. :0) I've also seen a bald eagle (my first), a belted kingfisher (my guess), and a steller's jay (my guess). I'm still pretty new at identifying them. As you can tell by "my guess". lol. I'm hoping to learn more here. You guys seem so knowledgeable. And thanks for the welcome.
Gary, what a great set of photos you just posted! I especially like the Grebe with reflection and the White Pelicans in synchronization; they have an almost Zen quality, huh? I also liked the low-swimming Grebe behind the pelicans; that's wild how they do that. Thanks!
Beautiful shots on the four little owls! I like the detail; I don't generally manage to get my photos so well focused! I've not seen these birds before...and appreciate that I can SEE them here. ...but, why is it we can't comment on your photo-page like we can the others? Too much chit-chat? LOL heh heh heh ...vee vill find a way!
Have I lost my mind? I cannot figure out HOW to 'respond' to an event. I plan, along with some other folks from La Veta, to go to the Wet Mountain Field Trip...but I can't remember HOW to say so! Can you help?
