SW Commuter Path

We returned to the bike path in hopes of relocating the vulture today, but no luck. We did find a large flock of roosting turkey vultures, but no black vulture with them. In the other direction, we found a hairy woodpecker. As a phenology note, we saw some pine siskins chasing each other in a tree overhanging the trail! In walking through the neighborhoods, we came across a flock of wild turkey in a yard.

My Best BIGBY Find to Date!

While taking a walk down the sidewalks of my neighborhood, Paul Schilke and I found a black vulture in a kettle of turkey vultures!!!

It just goes to show, you absolutely never know what you'll find on an evening stroll. Oh, the joy of birding!

Late to the Game 2016

I've been slow to start this year's BIGBY, but with some nice backyard feeder birds and a neighborhood walk this afternoon, I'm on the board!
