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

Posted Thursday 15th February 2018 at 18:23 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, whereas the Anna's has that ugly yellowish background, and is perched on a feeder. On that note, let's get on with today's adventure!
I'm sure there's birders my age reading this right now, birder's who go to school every day, and have to save their birding endeavors for the weekend. It's OK, that was me until 10th grade (my current school grade), I can't go birding every week, but sometimes I'm out birding when every body else is studying math. I remember, Mom and I would go to the GRPs 2 or 3 days every week when we first moved. That's over now. Today did not have the typical Monday feel, and for the better. For a while now, a PYRRHULOXIA, WESTERN SCHREECH-OWL, and some WHITE-THROATED SWIFTS have been consistently reported at the Desert botanical Garden (DBG). Today was my day to go after all 3 of those!
