The Chair of Pyrr?! Nobody Told Me About The Chair of Pyrr!

Posted Thursday 15th February 2018 at 19:23 by alaskabirder
Hey everyone! Like the new blog cover photo? I really think the color scheme of this new cover goes better with my blog page, plus, I'm a Costa's Hummingbird kind of guy, I've made that clear. Nothing against the Anna's, but for 1, this pose is EPIC!! For 2, the Costa's Hummingbird is now one of my favorite North American Birds. For 3, That violet gorget is incredible, and looks cooler than the Anna's red throat. 4, this bird has a blue-sky background, and is perched on a branch, its natural habitat,...

NOT the TIMELINE SERIES: XTREME Costa's Hummer Pix!

Posted Thursday 15th February 2018 at 19:19 by alaskabirder
Hi all! I've been slacking on posting lately, because I'm busy with homeschool. Today, however, I was done before noon, so I went outside for fresh air. Just so you know, the TIMELINE series has NOT ended, it's just I'm having trouble remembering exactly what happened on these endeavors, and also, these photos are NOT of the Costa's that likes to be petted. I haven't found time to say this, but, the Costa's Hummingbird that I pet has been gone about 2 months! All because of the most pugnacious,...

TIMELINE SERIES: February 16th 2017, I Saw 3 LIFERS On The Way To School...

Posted Friday 2nd February 2018 at 22:41 by alaskabirder
I don't think I've ever seen even just 1 lifer on the way to school, except, I miracuously saw 3 on Febuary 16th, and ALL members of Calcariidae... My NBB (non-birder brother), Brian, was driving me to school on Feb. 16th, 2017. A couple minutes from our house, there's a small experimental farming field. Often times, it's filled with Snow and Canada Geese and cranes during spring and fall migration, but this time, it was filled with something different. Under normal circumstances, it's actually...

TIMELINE SERIES: July 22nd 2017, DENALI HIGHWAY!

Updated Friday 2nd February 2018 at 22:41 by alaskabirder
Hello Kingbirds! If y'll have checked out my Alaska Photo Gall, then you know of Denali Highway! The views are BREATHTAKING right? I guess that's a rhetorical question. Denali Highway IS BREATHTAKING! No question about it. What I haven't told you you about Denali Highway, I hit one of Alaska's best breeding birds it has to offer! It's a flycatcher. An Empid to be exact, and no, I didn't hit the bird with a car, I hit it hard and fast with my binos! This Empid is widespread during migration in the...

TIMELINE SERIES: August 13-14 2016, My FIRST Rarity Chase!

Posted Friday 2nd February 2018 at 22:37 by alaskabirder
Hi all! The word "rarity" intimidated me when I was 14. I thought surely if it was casual or accidental, I would NEVER see it, or it would be highly unlikely. Well now after chasing an accidental, I know now that casuals and accidentals are just as obtainable as any common bird. Rare bird reports happen every day here in Maricopa. Most are locally and county rare, but sometimes, like before I was a birder (back when I used the term "birdwatching" and couldn't tell you which was...
