No more bird feed

Posted Wednesday 12th February 2014 at 23:37 by LifeIsGood2
Just wondering what is common for investment into bird seed. I am new to bird watching, as I've mentioned, and it is winter in Missouri. So, I imagine myself walking through wooded areas spotting birds in the spring but for now used bird seed to bring them up close in the back yard. I saw Juncos, sparrows, tufted titmouse, lots of blue jays and cardinals, nuthatches and a big woodpecker - Red Breasted. I think a couple more species but they were not here often enough for me to identify. I think...

The past weekend wasn't as expected. For one of the days I wanted to do some work at home and for the other one I wanted to visit a site for a Rock Partridge and White-backed Woodpecker not far from my place. These are two species that a friend from the Netherlands wants to see and I wanted to make sure we increase our chances of seeing the birds. I did the whole preparation for the trip and then a colleague called with a rather tempting suggestion. Pelican photography! Huge temptation. I decided...

I returned to Aguiño to see the razorbill again. The hope was not fulfilled because it had disappeared but I had the opportunity to see other pelagic birds on the coast due to the storm. As this northern gannet flying over the quay in the port.

Themes

Posted Monday 3rd February 2014 at 19:12 by Green Sandpiper
My birding years seem to have an over-riding theme, a perception of a pattern, or even just a continuing feeling of something. Last year, the first three months saw me ticking oystercatchers everywhere- I literally couldn't avoid them. I thought then that that either be my overiding memories, or else just the undercurrent.

This year, the theme of the year (so far) has been birding in twilight. No matter the time of day, its been dull, cloudy, with terrible light. Frustrating at...

ID:	1385The second day of the year I went to Pozo Negro, spanish for Black Pool, in Boiro town, in the middle of a rainy day. First I came to Playa Jardín where I only saw a distant grey heron and gulls. I walked through the grove toward the swamp at the mouth of Coroño river and a grey heron flew out scared of me while another arrived. But I saw more than a dozen of grey herons in the end of the morning
