We were super lucky to spot the highly coveted Boreal Owl while it hunted in the spruce trees along the shore of Lake Superior this winter. This tiny fluffball of feathers was a lifer for us and caused quite the scene among all of the birders in the area!

🧡❤️💛 Last day of the 2018 Great Backyard Bird Count. I welcomed each and every feathered friend who faithfully returned to our feeders. They count on me so I counted on them... 🤗😉😂.... #greatbackyardbirdcount #gbbc #birdnerd #backyardbirds #birdbrain #featheredfriends #cardinal #japanesemaple #birdlovers #winterbirds #fortheloveofbirds

A very common songbird in Santa Barbara, the Yellow-Rumped Warbler has a very memorable song. (allaboutbirds.org is a great resource for songs/calls, and much more!) These sweet birds do have a bright yellow patch on their “rump”, although it’s easier to identify them by the yellow on their throat and the small bit under their wings. They hang out in shrubs of all sizes!

steller’s jays are one of my favorite birds. i have been fortunate that both of the regions i’ve lived in have had these birds. when i became a birder while working as an educator at a park in washington state, i saw these guys all the time. after moving back to colorado, i noticed that i can find the interior subspecies out here if i go into the foothills and mountains along the western part of the state. the bird in the reference photo generously provided by photographer janine russell appears to be of the pacific variety of steller’s jay, where the coloring is a bit darker and it has blue streaks along the crest rather than the bold white ones of the interior variety here in colorado. what’s your connection to steller’s jays? have you seen them or are you hoping to someday?

Hot heron! Birds will open their mouths and pant on hot days. Today is definitely one of those days - the sun makes it crazy hot and I was taking many chances to cool off in the ocean today. This great blue heron was hanging around on the beach hoping one of the fisherman would drop his catch. Made for some nice close up views. Tomorrow morning I’m heading to a wildlife preserve! Gonna be awesome. #AllTheBirds
