We came from here: http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1242353/

At first glance you might think that last one was a slow moving thread, since it ran for 13 days. However, we packed a lot into those 129 posts. For those who might be interested, I counted 216 individual pictures posted, and 53 comments that contained no pictures. In any event, there are a lot of outstanding shots in there, so if you missed part of it, it would be well worth your time to review it.

Now, on to 433.

Nice birds, dave. Thanks for the great start.

The closest I've managed to get to one of the Greater Scaup that have been on our pond for several weeks and a pic of 4 scaup with some Ring-necked Ducks. They often hang out together.

Of course with up to 5 pics per post now, there will be fewer posts per day, than when each pic needed a new post. Maybe the turnover to the next thread could be stepped up a bit to compensate, say every 80 posts?

Great bird pics on this thread! Thanks Dave for a the new thread.

This Copper's Hawk was on the watch from the neighbor's tree, across the street. Wish I could have taken a closer shot of it, because there were no branches blocking the bird.
The Downy WP is showing up more often, during the day.
And the Hairy WP has been a regular all winter.
Get more and more Goldfinches at the feeders.
The pic of the Crow was taken in January.

Different site. Different day. First, the Nankeen Night Heron. This was all I could get of him in the frame. I needed to sit on a little jetty and lean forward to get even this much. It was in deep shadow.

Then the White-faced Heron who was still sleeping on a boat ramp when I arrived at the spot. As the sun slid slowly down the sky, he sparked up and spent at least half an hour preening.

It was unbelievably windy and these Rainbow Lorikeets were having a ball hanging on in the tree tops. These are their true colours, intensified by the late afternoon light.

This pair of nuttall's woodpeckers are really helping to make me forget the nasty weather and cast on my hand.

Hello All,

Sorry I've been away for so long...just getting back in the swing of it all here again. Missed everyone!
LOVE everyone's pics!!! :)

We've had a Common Redpoll here for about a month now...don't know if it's the same one as our 1st one last year...could be...both females! I took a pic of her last year on 3/7/11 and on 2/2/12. This pic was taken yesterday...bless her heart!
Sightings here in Nebraska for these arctic tundra/boreal forest breeding birds are not common...even in winter...

Nothing grand here just the usual...Pileated, Red-bellied, Common Grackle(more of those all the time!) and a Carolina Chickadee. I have switched from BOSS to the larger grey striped sunflower seeds after reading an article that said HOSP don't like them as well and it does seem to have cut the numbers down some.

Burn, your jay and wp shots are beautiful too.


My birds are beginning to arrive in pairs now- Brewer's Blackbirds, House Finches. Of course there's still the male and female Nuttall's wps, but each time the end up on the same log, the male shooes the female away before I can get the pic.

Thank you Dave for starting one terrific thread. And all the fantastic contributions from everyone else. I'm so far behind, so can't possibly address everyone. Just wanted to share, how thrilled I was to see this lovely bird once again since last year. At first I couldn't decide ... 1st I suspected Pheobe, but the pretty didn't flip its tail upon landing. Too small to be Eastern Kingbird. Then, I remember, Great Creasted Flycatcher! Such pretty bird.

Oh, SusanLouse, it's nice to see you're back on the forum.

Sorry, 'early' means arriving earlier in the spring than most do. If you normally expect a summer migrant to arrive around 10 March, and one arrives on 3 March, it's an early arrival. And it's the one that gets the worm ;-)

Resin

Edit - took another look at the pics in better light, and I'm fairly certain now it's an Eastern Phoebe.

Ditto, thanks. Early it's. Since I don't have any previous data to compare. But with the yoyo weather we've had, there is report Mourning Doves laying eggs in Feb. which was way early for the schedule.

SusanLouise, great photos of the hawk. I've not seen one in a bath either. Sorry for the dove.

Granny, I love those cardinals-such pretty colors on both the male and female.

Lily, your bird sure looks pretty in your tree.

BCH, glad your cardinal is back. She sure is pretty.

I have a second house finch with some leucistic coloring. This slate-colored junco looked cute trying to stay on the perch in the wind. I think it heard me laughing because it jumped to another branch and gave me "the look".

I went to a conservation area on the river early this morning. It should get better in the coming weeks as migratory birds start to arrive.

First, a single Fairy Tern. They really are small.

At the other end of the scale, the largest Tern, the Caspian Tern in non-breeding plumage.

This sweet little bird had no fear of me. It was almost at my feet and too close to take a photo of on several occasions. It's a new one for me. A juvenile Red-capped Plover.

The last shot is of a flock of Little Black Cormorants, along with a Black Swan.

Great Egret. It was very wary and took off as soon as it saw me. I only managed this one shot.

More of the Little Black Cormorants. I've only included this to show the gorgeous colour of the eyes.

Those are fabulous photos Margaret...that little Plover has stolen my heart!!

This is a beautiful thread but with the added photos it is getting too long so I will be starting a new one. I will return with a new link.

Thanks to Dave for the gorgeous start and to everyone else for sharing your birds.

Here is the link to the new thread http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1245328/ .
