I haven't been there for years as well. It is beautiful there. Let me know when you have another bird walk. If I am free, I will try and attend!

Tomorrow I am going on my first Bird Walk. It starts at 9am, and we need to leave at between 8 and 8:30. Sounds easy, but my husband is usually getting up at 9:00am, going on the bike for 45 minutes, and then having breakfast with me. So if we can change all this, we will be at Fern Dell at Griffith Park first thing tomorrow. I remember going there when I was a teenager. It is gorgeous. Griffith Park is home to The Griffith Park Observatory, and you can see the Hollywood Sign from there. We are going to the meeting place The Trails Café early, so my husband can have his coffee, and we both can have a healthy breakfast. The walk is only an hour. Stopped at the library a few minutes ago to get bird books. Really looking forward to it! Also if all goes well they have them at Malibu Creek and all over at beautiful spots. I have always loved birds, but there was a documentary on HBO about birders that really made me want to see if I could be one. So here goes!

there is something special about being out in the rain and standing still and watching rain drip form your wide brim hat.
I was out walking and geo caching in the pouring rain yesterday and I came to this conclusion as I signed the log book - with head tilted down to sign the log book I watched the water drip off of my hat and I felt satisfied and happy.
-- it could be the same standing there in the pouring rain looking at a bird too...

Getting out to look for birds
Squamish Estuary who knew it was so large and had different trails almost like separate parks. In the morning I went out with Dalhouise hiking the newer section on the west side of the channels for about two hours - came home ate lunch and then went out again with Noni and Dalhouise for another two and half hours. The second section is on the eastern side of the river and channel closer to town and the first developed.
Birds were there but not as many as I would expect - it was warm but the wind certainly was cooler when we first started out but we warmed up quickly as we moved.
Almost surprised a naked lady...
I was taking some pictures - talking to Noni and then walked a few steps and came unto an opening / beach area and there was a lady standing with a towel around herself and her clothes in a pile nearby. Was she naked maybe not -- but I think so.
It is too cold to swim - but I think she was sun bathing - trying to get a jump on her tan.
She seemed to be embraced - but who knows..
By the time we returned home Noni was getting sore again so today's length was just the right hike for her..

I thought I had a pet bird yesterday. He landed on our opened third floor balcony and stayed there all day through the snow and rain. Yes I have three feeders hanging just out side my glass door --and he did visit all three occasionally through out the day. Most often though he sat on the floor or in my planter flower pot looking inside at me and the Dalhouise.
Dalhouise would come and go and he did not seem to mind the dog one bit..
He was with me from the time I woke up around 7 am to about 5:30 pm .

Love - or something of that nature --- today as I walked around the pond I noticed that some mallard ducks were doing the act of baby making.
I use to own ducks on my little homestead in Ontario before I moved west and found my self living in a Condo and now walking to a pond nearby.
So as I walked around the pond today I spotted a Mallard head and a male on top - at first sighting one would think he is trying to drown her...

In the morning I walk around the pond spotting mallard ducks and eagles and a blue heron then in the afternoon
I went hiking with my friend on the Chief a hike to the First Peak: 1.5-kilometre trail with an elevation gain of 540 metres. (1771.65 feet)
I was looking for some birds and didn't notice any on that hike

- Next day - I am a little sore but doing well - not going to tackle the other peaks for a few weeks though..

don't figure - I replaced my suet cake in the feeder two days ago and just left the remaining little chunk on the patio table. Guess what - there has been no birds going to the new suet cake but to the little chunk -
I am watching this Northern flicker in my flower pot pecking away at a smaller chuck that has fallen off the table now - why not go for the brand new suet cake hanging in the basket ......

Yesterday, a bird bander, Fred Bassett, was able to capture and band a Rufous Hummingbird in our backyard. In the late 90's, Fred and others began to realize there were some Western US species of Hummers that did not migrate south but went east instead. We have planted our yard with hummingbird plants and maintain one feeder all winter. The freeze Tuesday in the south killed all our plants and the bird showed up at the feeder. I will add some more pics later today on the process.

I didn't take part in the Christmas Bird Count but my Dad did. Where he lives, that day the temp was -29C/-20F so the birds weren't out and about and he only got to count 18 species. But one was a Barred Owl so he was happy about that!

I participated in the local Christmas Bird Count for Audubon last Saturday. Our circle had a total of 137 species for our count area in North West Florida. Our best birds were Black Scoter and Western Kingbird. If you participated post your experience here.

Snowy owls are day hunters, and can be found where there are lemmings for them to eat. Listen to the radio clip in this link, very interesting! I'm going to have to put Birding By Ear on my Christmas wish list.

How about a 30 minute bird walk once per week and we can create a sticky topic of best bird seen on bird walk. What do you think?

Hello!

Would the Team Leaders consider adding a Team Goal? I'd like to have a goal of going on a birding walk once a week. I can add it to my personal goals page of course but maybe this would be a good one for the team too. It doesn't have to be an ambitious, long hike...any way in a natural or park area where birds can be observed.

I finally got some binoculars of my own and now I'm hoping for warmer weather so I can get out birding. I went out for a walk in a big park last weekend but all I saw were black capped chickadees. They're adorable, but I've seen them before. It was a cold day so I guess the other winter birds were getting cosy out of my sight.

It's so cold here i'm even feeling sorry about not feeding the squirrels. I've been putting away the Christmas decorations and trying to declutter, so I haven't had the time to watch the birds at the feeder.

We are finally having winter weather. The birds have really been eating my bird feed. (which remands me I'd better put out some suet). This year I have more sparrows and house finches. They are always little piggies.

I'm down here in Daytona Beach riding my Buell and all of a sudden there are feathers almost in my face. A red tailed hawk almost flew into me. Thank goodness it missed me. I got a really good look at it's tail feathers though. So glad we didn't collide.

YES! It is that time of year. We have had more geese than usual over head! The crows have been making a lot of noise as well. I am not yet feeding the birds as we have so must natural food for them around the house and on the farm. My Hubby and I both love the birds and well he has made our home a great place to watch the birds this time of the year by planting surbs, plans, and tees for the birds and us. We still have weed seeds, grass seeds a plenty. We will start feeding them after the first snow. Sound like your oak-leaf hydrangeas are beautiful. I don't have any of those. Please, Tell me about yours. Thank you! HUGS! Jenny

I know what you mean when you talk about them being puffed. It like they put on their warmer coat. I just love to watch them and it is getting cooler here for sure.

Well, we got a shallow bird bath yesterday and set it up next to the deeper one. I can usually look out my window as I work out so we'll see if they use it. I hope so!

---and it's either getting colder out or I am feeding the birdies way to much! They always look like Christmas ornaments to me when they puff out!

We have a place they can get water but it is on the ground and not safe as I would like.

Good evening, everyone!

I just realized today that I need to get a shallower bird bath. I watched a house finch dip one wing in, shake it, dip another in, shake it, then he'd try to jump in but would get nervous....poor lil' fella!

I put a flat dish on the ground but I think it would be better to get a flat one off the ground for the wee birdies.



Si vales, valeo.

Hello All!

That sounds wonderful. Sure sounds like a lot of fun.

Have not walked yet! Had a bad night of it as i was not feeling well but now I am up and doing better. Plan to take that walk before 1 PM. OH! We sure have a lovely array of birds this fall. So much fun to watch and listen too. I just love the Humming Birds too and would love to see a Magpie. I have never seen one. Hubby and I love to sit on the porch and watch the birds. We need to do that more. God is so good and we are so blessed! Have a great day all! HUGS! Jenny Drop by my blog if you get a chance. emoticon

Just got back from the Buffalo round-up in S. Dak. Really a great sight with the cowboys in front and behind. The only birds I saw were Magpies. The hummingbirds are still here in Illinois, they should be migrating shortly. Crazy year for weather.

Yesterday as Hubby and I were out walking and enjoying the wonderful fall day we saw a strange site. Something about the size of a medium dog was moving fast on the ground.
It turned out to be a raccoon. Hubby shouted out to STOP! The raccoon to stopped and looked at us for a bit. He did not seem to be afraid of us at all. Then he hurried on his way.
We have been seeing geese, and normal back yard birds. Hope you are all having great bird adventures.

We sure enjoy the birds and have not noticed the migration of the birds yet here but it is sure to come soon. It has turned cooler. Today we were in the 30's. emoticon

I can't believe birds are migrating already. I can't wait for some of them to stay here for the winter. The Kinglet is a cute little bird.

HI all! Hope you have a great week. Today is cool but nice. The Middle East problems is serious. Praying. Hope you all stay safe. I love to walk for exercise and enjoy the wonders of nature and the joy of the morning. The sounds of the morning birds singing and the fresh air are a great way to start a day. Have a blessed day!

28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. K.J.V. in Public Domain

Hello!

I was sitting on the patio for about 3 hours earlier today in the afternoon and saw a ruby crowned kinglet. Rare for my area so he must be migrating through.

It was a lovely bird watching day here in southwestern PA. Overcast but some sun. Cool but not too cold. Saw the regulars and one lone turkey. I could tell they had come earlier too because all of the leaves were scratched up. kim

We have a Vet in town that knows a lot about wild birds. See if you can find one. If not find a bird club. People in bird clubs usually raise their own. They should know. Let us know what you find out.

Nursing a little pigeon fledgling, he was in a bad state when I picked him up on my early morning walk-looks as he will make it, still feeding him with a syringe but sure he should be eating by himself....any advise? how do I wean him off, it's been 6 days now. any help will be appreciated as I have no idea what to do next.

It's the same temp here too. We went over to my sister's and loaded up by little Buell and parked it in the garage here. Getting ready to go to Florida. I'll miss my little birds. The water birds in Fl are entertaining though. I love to watch the Pelicans fly so close to the ocean and those little sandpipers that go 90 miles a hour with there little legs. My wrist is getting better, but I still have a way to go. Oh well.

Doing some House chores this morning! Watching the birds a little and getting in some good exercise and walking. Doing my Bible devotions. Drinking my water. Having been listing to some great uplifting music. A good morning. What are you up to???

We have two suet up now for the birds. We get a lot of birds that eat the suet. I sure like to watch the Black-capped Chickadee. They are so quick and just fun to watch. Hubby and I went for a nice walk. It is bitter cold and we did see some birds in flight but no other wild life during the walk. I guess they were smart and stayed cozy in their little homes. emoticon We had a good time and so enjoy getting back in the house to get warm. Looked out my window and saw Cardinals at feeder. NICE!

Well it took 3 day and the squirrels ate all the suet. Eddie thinks he is a inside dog, so he is only out there ever-so-often.

Today in our back yard i saw Cardinals, Chickadee's, European Starlings, Finches, and a Red Belled Woodpecker. It was sunny and a nice day in the 40's. A great day to watch the birds.
What is going on were you are????

Cold and snowy today. The snow birds (Juncos) are really liking the birds seed in my open bird feeder. Saw a Cardinal earlier. They seem to like it better then my nice bird feeder with the sunflowers in it. Just got back from my 1st session at the physical therpist. So I haven't had too much bird time.

Hello! It was cold here today because of the wind. The temperature was from the teens to the
low 30's but felt colder to me. Did not get out much today and only saw purple fences, gold fences, woodpeckers, junco's, and a few other type birds. Hope you all had a great day birding and living the healthy Spark way. Jenny emoticon emoticon

had some unusual warm weather and the birds were really singing. i read about the whooping cranes that they raise in wisc and migrate down to florida in the late fall. they made it to alabama and the cranes won't follow the hydro-plane after that. so they are going to crate them up and release them in a near by refuge in alabama. this is the first time in 11 year this has happened. they think it is the weather.

Hi Everyone. I was good today and walked at lunch. I really, really didn't want to go but I talked myself into it. I'm so glad I did. I'm out here in CA and it's like a beautiful spring day. All the little tweeters were out and playing in the grass and trees. I saw sparrows, finches, mockingbirds. I didn't want to come back to work. I wanted to stay and watch them play together. I really want to get into bird watching, but I am soooo busy with work and home. When we go camping I get my bird book out. It's so much fun to find new birdies. Well I gotta go. Work is calling. Hope your all having a good, stress free day emoticon emoticon

I'm looking for a few good bird watchers. Actually I'm looking to "hire" someone to take over my position as leader of this team. If you are interested, please Sparkmail me.

I'm in zone 5 also. The hyssop is an herb that smells like anise. It has a purple tube-like flower here is a link to it. www.herbcompanion.com/Herb-Profiles/

It is a member of the mint family so it can be aggressive but it pulls up easily.
