2200Re: [Mendobirds] another bird i.d. question
- Apr 21, 2007I would like to request that when people reply to question(s) they
choose "reply to all" so everyone can read the answer. (Or at least
copy your answer to me, please).
P.S. I had a pair of Lazuli Buntings yesterday. Also was interested to
see a Western Bluebird perched on a high dead branch about 8 inches
from a Kestrel. Both just hung out there watching the scenery together
for 5 minutes or so, whereupon the Bluebird flew off. I guess Kestrels
eat birds only occasionally.
Also saw 1 Western Kingbird and 1 Bullock's Oriole, which I'd been
hearing for a few days but not seeing. I love it when the migrants are
back in force!
