Thanks Mike,

I would say they were Balearic too having looked in my book back at the hotel. If I'd been quicker, I might have got a record shot of them on my phone!

As for the Scop's Owls, will...

Hi there,

I'm going out to Toronto next week from the UK and hope to have a half day free (possibly a day) to look for some birds. Thinking High Park may be my best bet. Any tips on seeing Belted...

We are both fine thanks, but wishing we were back in Mallorca. Hope you are too. Did you catch up with the Scop's Owls?

Just had a flock of about 30 Bee-eaters hawking and flying over the field next to the boquer car park. Amazingly close flybys as were were under a tree. Typically didn't have my camera with me.
