I have to admit that I didn't use a web site that I know to be correct (and I'd trust Sibley's over most sources) so if that says they can both have pink legs, then I'll believe him. This place listed it as one of the major differences, though, so that seems odd.

Hey, maybe it was taking a summer holiday to the othern climbs.

Well, if it really was a Louisiana Waterthrush up in Norm's neck of the woods then he should call the Rare Bird Alert immediately! Norm will get a name for himself among birders in his area :-)

Why do I wish that birds could talk?

Don't I know it. I'd love to hear what they would say (after they got threw chewing me out for what us humans are doing to the places they like.)

eric, I was thinking that same thing today while watching nature be so cool. The only 2 things that disturbed me were:

a train

a quad (those 4 wheeled disasters that invade the silence)

...all human interferences. I appreciate your comment

I like the heron shot and there seems to be an OOF tern in that pelican shot.

I know how important it is to be cautious, but many times it helps to know roughly where You were when You made a shot. It saves time trying to I.D. the Critters! A hundred mile circle would do just fine. Only a few White Pelicans near here, and they are confused, guess You are in Texas, or West of there. Great Blue could be almost anywhere, They do get around some.

Nice shooting, wherever You were. It is not easy to catch them moving.

Hi tsiya - just so you know - Normcar is located up in central Alberta. We know that so it makes our job of id'ing the birds he posts that much easier
