Thank you George for these gorgeous photos. Susan and I are bonsai buddies and she recommended your photo site. We are backyard birdwatchers here in Yakima and often spy Tanagers. Surprised to know there are so many varied and they 'commute' so far. Also we are going to Costa Rica in Feb. Looking forward to your "Tika" bird photos.
Good luck on you journey and can't wait to hear of the Adventure.

I would like to document the presence of Tropical Kingbirds at the Hassayampa River Preserve for 2003 thru 2006 and 2009. Were your May 2005 photos taken at the preserve? Do you have photographic evidence for the other years? Thanks for any help you can provide.

I live in the central highlands of Mexico along the flank of an ancient volcano. I see Prairie Falcons almost every day. I observed one this week flying toward the mountain with nesting materials secured in its beak. I have isolated a possible nesting area to a long cliff that overlooks a deep canyon and extends along the edge of an ancient lava flow. I am grateful to you for your pictures of the nesting Prairie Falcons. Now I have a general idea of what to look for: the type of nest the birds build; the loccation they prefer; how long the chicks stay on the nest; etc. My boots, pack, and camera gear stand at the ready.

Hi George! Really wonderful collection of bird pictures! I just took my first woodpecker picture this week (in the back yard,http://www.pbase.com/rbfresno/image/46045783 ), did a woodpecker search on pbase to ID it, and came upon your terrific woodpecker collection. My longest reaching equipment is my 200-400VR + TC-14 (just got the TC two weeks ago). However, when I see what the 600mm can do in hands like yours, I start thinking....

I'll visit again for sure!!
Sherrel Hailstone 22-Jun-2005 18:32

Hi George; Just found your web site, about 90% of the birds you have pictured are here on your farm. Very excellent pictures, hope we can meet some day.
