This was my last day with gannets and coastal birds before easter. And I left sea, storm, rain and pelagic birds and went back to Madrid the next day.

Meet the Godwits

Posted Thursday 27th February 2014 at 15:44 by Rick and Elis
There are four species of godwit, Limosa, in the world. They are all interesting and elegant birds and at least one example can be seen on all six of the world's inhabited continents at some time in their varied life cycles. Some are famously record-breaking migrants like the Bar-tailed Godwit and others lead a much more restricted lifestyle, like the Marbled Godwit.

Black-tailed Godwit was the 4th species we saw on our global quest for waders and it is the only one of the four in...

Well, I have not figured out how to identify the hawks that I have been seeing lately. Due to distance and other factors (being new at it), I am not sure what I have seen. I do wish I would've gotten a picture of the one that flew across Ralph's pasture today because it had a large wing feather sticking straight up and I guess about to be shed.

White Stripe on underside of wing of soaring bird

Posted Sunday 23rd February 2014 at 04:27 by LifeIsGood2
That is all I got so far. Books point to Night Hawk or Black Vulture, so far. Today, Feb. 22, it was soaring high above our back yard area. The wings seemed horizontal and the color of the bird seemed dark but as it turned to the side, the belly seemed a little lighter color - light brown maybe.

So, I am not sure what it was, yet.

Also, I saw a woodpecker that is either a Downy or Hairy Woodpecker. I just cannot tell because I am not sure of the size of the beak....
