Pretty Bird! Pretty Bird!
Our members continue to share their pictures of new species (and subspecies) from all over. Take a look:
LinLark was in Mexico recently and got a picture of a Cinnamon-rumped Seedeater. That’s a new one on me – maybe for you, too. Yes LinLark – it’s a first for the site!
Some birders go to great lengths to see and photograph a bird species for the first time. How many times would you go out to find a subspecies though? Birder2011 went three times to see the Oregon subspecies of a Dark-eyed Junco. As you can tell from her photo it was worth the trip. By the way, it is extremely difficult to get a shot this good with the very bright white snow and breast and the black head of the bird – well done!
What would you do if you saw a creature like this walking around your deck? Rebecca Bowater took a picture of it – a Weka (otherwise known as a Maori Hen in New Zealand). Best wishes to Rebecca as the North Island was being pummeled by a storm a couple days ago.
