Rare Bird photos on FeederWatch web site
- Hi all:
Five of my birds have their portraits on the Cornell/Project
Feeder Watch Rare Bird page:
Look for the photos of:
Black-chinned hummingbird - by Ross McGregor
Calliope hummingbird - by Andy Wraithemll
(This hummer seems to have disappeared again. Maybe he'll return.)
Summer Tanager, female - by Dean Jue
Western Tanager, male - by Andy Wraithmell
(A female Western Tanager is also coming to feeders now.)
Bullock's Oriole - by Dean Jue
The female Summer Tanager and female Western Tanager showed up
last weekend and so far seem to be sticking around. The male
Western T is in and out. The Bullock's is still coming in with
all the Baltimore Orioles.
Glenda Simmons of Tallahassee also has a couple of photos on there:
Snow Goose and a Rufous hummer.
I've had about a dozen Goldfinches at the feeders today.
Here's an early reminder that the 10th annual Great Backyard Bird Count takes
place February 16-19, 2007. Go to http://www.birdsource.org/gbbc/
for all the info. Despite the name, the count is NOT just for "backyards"
but can be done anywhere, including parks and wildlife refuges. I
hope all my winter birds show up to be counted.
