Fork-tailed Flycatcher
On November 17 2010, Tina Green discovered a Fork-tailed Flycatcher in Stamford Connecticut. As of today, Nov 25th it is still present. Here are some images.

A gallery of images can also be seen at the following link. Note that many of the images on the second page of thumbnails are images only posted to aid in the determination of sex and possible origin of the bird.

March 1, 2010. Finally found time to upload approximately 600 new images to the site today.
Here's a sample gallery of latest images.

Unusual Junco. A few weeks ago I noticed this guy outside our dining room window feeding with a flock of Dark-eyed Juncos and White-throated Sparrows. My thought it might possibly be a hybrid of the two species which does occasionally occur. I sent a copy to Mark Szantyr who is an expert in the field and he agrees it's a good possibility. With the big push of juncos hitting the area it's fun to look for these "out of norm" birds. For more great info on these possible hybrids see Marks excellent article and illustrations here. http://birdinggeek.blogspot.com/2009/08/two-probable-dark-eyed-junco-hybrids.html

Colima Pygmy-Owl

I've processed a fair number of images from a recent trip to Mexico. We spent out time on the west coast in the San Blas area which is a few hours north of Puerto Villarta. Other than some cracked ribs it was a great trip with lots of new birds. Especially cooperative was a Colima Pygmy-Owl..... smaller than a Fox Sparrow! These images will be added to the image library as soon as time permits but If you want to see some images from this latest trip check out this gallery.
