    Monteverde Costa Rica, Any help appreciated!

    Agreed, but the tanager is now called Common Chlorospingus.

    How often do you rake bird seeds?

    I don't rake at all, either. The husks just compost where they fall (at least that which the dog doesn't lick up - he has a taste for Nyjer :rolleyes:) Grass doesn't grow under our feeders, but that is ok, because I am working on removing all the grass from our yard.

    Intro and question about best field guide for Australia.

    Hello Marc, and welcome! I spent six months in Australia last winter (summer in Oz), and spent a whole lot of time birding. I bought a number of bird guides before and during my trip. Some of these were specific to WA, and one to Taz. The most complete and most recent is probably The Australia...

    Favourite Book About Birds/Birding?

    There are a bunch out there, but I rather enjoyed Noah Stryker's "Birding without Borders."

    Two Months of Lifers Down Under

    Good show, Delia! I was in Perth for 4-1/2 weeks with a 2 week road trip of southern WA, a couple nights in Sydney, and 10 days in Tassie, and only managed 157 lifers. (in my defense, birding wasn't my sole occupation, and I never had a guide (by choice)...)

    Birds and Boats anybody?

    Dunno, looks sort of like a sea-going tug. If you go to MarineTraffic.com, you can get the id of just about any vessel in the world, realtime.

    Two Months of Lifers Down Under

    "Welcome to WA, Delia!" I've been waiting for you to get to this part of your travelogue. I've been fortunate to be in WA for 4 1/2 months now, and while not all has been birding, I've gotten out quite a bit, including a 2-week tour of southern WA from Perth to Esperance to Albany to Margaret...

    Western Australia-Albany ID from photos and song?

    Apparently, one had to click on the “process” button. |^| Two more days of travel and a dead computer battery later, I think I have got the photo up. Dan

    Western Australia-Albany ID from photos and song?

    Thanks, sicklebill, Larry, and Delia! Hi Delia - yes, we did find that hide, though everything was pretty far off to see well. We've seen quite a bit in the gardens of the place we are staying.

    Western Australia-Albany ID from photos and song?

    Just to be clear, the bird in the photos is the same individual as recorded. Audio was extracted from a video, which could be provided if desired. So, if a whistler (which seems to be on the right track), it would be a case of female song (?). No sightings of males at this site, so far. Delia -...
