Well overall the trip to Panama was a fail=NO owl. Lots of little birds, mostly too little and too far away and very often backlit. But there was this pigeon we imaged. Unique in that it is 3 feet tall and has 5 inch talons. Big enough it can actually sit on its buttocks! It was after we invested yet another 4 hours in the dugout and then two hours invested on foot---hoping it would be there. The reports from the indigenous were that the nest was still active but you never know. Very glad to find it though, hiking with a fever and constantly dripping with sweat, but you power on when you've got that much time invested. The cuipo trees are way tall. I'd estimate this bird was 120 feet up and the little openings between all the lower story trees/branches were few. Anyway, the largest most well armed pigeon I've ever imaged-

My son and I managed to make it to the Oregon Coast yesterday to see the common scoter that is hanging out at Lincoln City. This is a Code 5 ABA rarity, the highest rating for rare species. It is normally not found east of central Siberia and is only the 2nd sighting ever of this bird in North America. Birders from all over the continent have made the pilgrimage here to see it!

It was a ways out from the shore, so the photo isn't great, but I wanted to share nonetheless.

We also saw the tropical kingbird that has been spotted there and sure enough, it was still there. This is uncommon, although there a few that somehow make it to the PNW every year. Strangely enough, we see more of the tropical kingbirds west of the Cascades, rather than the western kingbirds that are found in Eastern Oregon. I guess coming up from the south is easier than crossing the mountains to the west. Got a couple of decent shots of the bird.

Finally, we saw lots of red phalaropes at Boiler Bay. They are of course not in breeding plumage at this time. The best shots were in the grassy areas next to the parking lot! :)

All were shot with the 7D2 and the 500/4 II with a 1.4X III. Thanks for looking!

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Is that on the Skagit, Peter? Definitely something I want to do this winter. It's a bit of a drive for me though.

No this is in Kent WA. A pair of eagle have a nest above the river, They came back early and trying to rebuild the nest. If you go up here I suggest between 2nd week of Dec to 2nd week of Jan and not to Skagit, Go to Nooksack river 50 to 300 Bald Eagles and also your way back you can stop by in Eide Rd in Stanwood WA exit 212 from I-5 then 8 miles from the freeway is Stanwood WA have you been there before? The Short eared owl are there right now. I will PM you where to go for the Eagles.
