This is just a collection of some of the birds we have seen since Jan. 1st. Taken anywhere between our garden in Truro down to Landsend and The Lizard. Nothing rare except the Great-Grey Shrike from Stithians. We took the Wood Pigeons because we had never noticed a Juv. (no neck markings ) before. We have had a lot of Siskins in lately but for some reason they don't photograph well. Same could be said of the 3-4 Scaup that we saw at Gothian Sands yesterday.

These are from our recent trip to California. There are a lot of them but California is a big place and this is only a fraction of what we took. We covered 2500 miles by road, down as far as the Mexican border. California is constantly shrouded in a haze which doesn't help with photography.
We spent a day at the Salton Sea, one of the hottest places on earth and it smells awful.
Had a great time though and came back exhausted.
