Steller's jay, Colorado Springs. I almost never see them, but this fall the front range drought has brought them down to my peanuts, dog food, and water. Peter

Rediscovery of Sillem's Mountain Finch

"In early June 2012, Yann Muzika photographed many finches during a difficult trek in Yeniugou Valley in western Qinghai, China (1500km east of Kushku Maidan), including one he could not identify. In August, he sent a batch of photographs to Krys Kazmierczak, the maintainer of OrientalBirdImages.org, who immediately identified the mystery bird as the long-lost Sillem's Mountain Finch."

Wow! I'm amazed! These are so awesome! I hit the jackpot!
Booklover those are amazing pics you found. I just love the bird riding in the back of the other.
Mr. Peterdactyl I love the hawk picture you took from your backyard and the Halloweeen bird photo. You are a great photographer!
Yes I love Halloween.
And Booklover the picture you got from Facebook with the bird and the preying Mantis - awesome!

Oh thank you so very much Mr. Peterdactyl! Those are lovely pictures!
I bet the group will be amazed at how you caught the birds in flight and with food in their beak.
