I'm constantly rotating the suet flavors, but I remember it was a unique flavor, either woodpecker's delight or mealworm. Same with the rock wren, 2 of them only came for the mealworm, and nowhere...

42. Ruby-crowned kinglet. Another new feeder bird! So tiny, so cute. I otherwise wouldn't have identified this bird if it wasn't staring me straight in the face (so very cheeky too) as I stood right...

After two years, I thought surely there couldn't be any new feeder birds, but I was wrong.

Getting closer but still now it. The Grey Francolin is more pheasant-like, while the one I saw was more owl-like with a much rounder and fuller head with a less distinct beak.

I'm really kicking...

Nothing too distinguishing or bright. Probably grays and browns.



No, I'm in SoCal and pretty good at identifying my own local birds, so definitely not. This one was bigger than a mockingbird and a...

Maui Airport

Sorry, no photos. I honestly thought it'd be easy to identify this bird when I got back. But, after looking through several online Maui bird guides, I haven't found it yet, so I turn to the experts...

Impressive decoy indeed! However, as opposed to you using one to attract hummingbirds, I wonder if I could use one to do the opposite and try to get rid of one really territorial Allen's? I've got...

Is there mold? If not, a vinegar solution works fine, but I usually just use a little dish detergent because it frequently gets cleaned and there's no build-up. However, if there's mold, that's a...

36. Brown-headed cowbird. I suspect they're nest shopping in the guise of eating alongside the other birds while "following them home" afterwards.
