Another one from me, courtesy of the new feeder in the front yard. We have had 2 or 3 Pine Siskin swinging by for a visit. Greedy birds, they like to stay put and chase off the chickadees trying to get their share too!

Nice work everyone! Sorry I've been off-line for a couple of weeks ... had a few projects keeping me pretty busy. Kevin - Love that Redwing ... very cool. Zach/Judy -- as usual, really nice ... also, good to see a live Pine Siskin. The only "redwing" I've seen lately is the Blackbird variety. :mrgreen:

Phainopepla6 -- glad to finally see your Great Blue Heron! Thanks for adding ... Prab ... I like that Great Blue peeking out ...

We are up to 106 Birds already! Wow.
Here's a link to the list ...

Wow! You guys have been busy. And such great birds too, some that I likely will never see (Murre and Murrelet for example). Nice going!
As an admitted fair weather birder I have not been out that much lately. On the few days that were nice I was working. Then there was today...finally! I went to the White Rock Pier, Blackie Spit and Elgin Park and came back with a few additions for the list.

I waited for them to get close enough for a combined shot, but they were drifting further apart so I had to settle for separate pictures.

I can't believe we don't have an American Crow yet.

I am really looking forward to spring this year.

I know we already have a beautiful picture of a female Northern Harrier, so here's a male "the grey ghost".

I went sniping along the dyke at Steveston in Richmond and found 4 of them. They were a little further out than I would've liked but I take what I can get!

We seem to be progressing along very well this year, with some great finds and photos. I can hopefully contribute some more in the near future... working for a living has it's downsides...
Got out last Wednesday for a bit in the sunshine and saw that their are some Western Bluebirds about up here and I went looking for my go-to Canyon Wren near OK Falls.
