    Thanks Marco and Pat. I had a lot of birds feeding this morning. This is a House Finch that showed up for a little while

    Joel - the colors and lighting on the young wood duck is superb! With all of your beautiful bird shots, it would be impossible to pick one favorite but this one would definitely be my favorite top ten!

    I recognize this guy----This is the only woodpecker I have actually seen in NM. Beautiful shot Joel; I really like the foreground/background with subject in the middle composition, very unique.

    I also thought you might be interested in this Mystery Bird -----I will be going out tomorrow in search of him and that ever elusive bobcat that has been seen for the last several days straight hanging out in the middle of the crane and geese flocks while they are feeding. He must be a crafty cat.

    Thanks Bob and Denise for the kind words.

    I have seen some info on that bird and a few theories about it.....what do you think? Lesser Sandhill or melanistic variant or some kind of hybrid?

    While I am typing this you are probably already at the Bosque.....wish I was there too

    Well, We have a local bird expert that seems to think it's a juvi that didn't molt this year. In the spring they preen mud into thier feathers for camoflage, then molt before thier flight south. When you look at the picture closely you can see where he has no feathers on the neck indicating disease. So my guess is that he is simply a sick or malnurished bird that din't molt.

    Here are some from the Bosque today:

    Northern Flicker---Sorry, I wasn't up for cleaning up all of the small branches



    Sandhill Crane---



    And what's a trip to the Bosque qithout one flyout shot
