    The Big Year (movie)

    These days even our local supermarket has signs not allowing you to tie your horse outside and you can forget riding in the car park. Although i did see one guy with an unfeasibly large sombrero riding his horse in the car park, but probably had just been to the liquor store and probably didn't...

    The Big Year Coming soon to Cinemas

    I just came out of the cinema to see it, must have been about 8 people total in a Southern California matinee but the weather was great outside, finally cooled down to the 90's. I thought it was great, very nicely done with a good mix of birds, people and scenery to appeal to everyone. Even...

    Yosemete birding

    I think he's referring to the Kern river flooding the entrance way to the Kern audubon reserve. http://kern.audubon.org/ Looks like you can walk in though so can't be too bad

    Best place for Condor

    Pinnacles national monument should be a good bet as it was one of the release sites.

    Yosemete birding

    Big Morongo should be good I assume you have their website http://www.bigmorongo.org/ Make sure you hit the next door local park Covington which usually has a pair of Vermillion flycatchers and often better birds than the reserve itself. I was there a few weeks ago and there's loads of nice...

    Anza Borrego/Julian Birding

    I'd recommend getting the Schram "A birders guide to southern California" I know there is a section on Anza Borrego in there. One area thats good especially in migration time is as you come into the park from Julian direction theres a campground and a spring and it acts as a migrant trap in the...

    Best American field guide

    Depending on where you're going the smaller Eastern/Western field guide versions of the large Sibley are very good. The larger Sibley is quite a large tome.

    Natural World- A Killer Whale called Luna 20.00-21.00pm BBC2 24/02/2010

    It was a good programme even if you sort of knew the inevitable end. One thing they didn't mention or maybe I missed it, is that previously there had been a similar case in Puget Sound where a lost young whale was successfully re united with the parent pod and was re integrated back into the...
