Hi All,

We've been on the road a lot lately with little time to play online, but I wanted to check in with all my friends and say hello!

This photo of a juvenile male Red-naped Sapsucker was taken yesterday near Powderhorn, Colorado. The chestnut-red of his throat and crown were particularly well developed for such a young bird (probably about 5 weeks after fledging). We caught 14 RNSA this past weekend, and I'll tell you, they are real biters with very sharp claws. Spunky birds and a favorite of mine. We also caught and banded 56 other songbirds and 77 hummingbirds of three species, great fun. We're off to another area of Colorado on Wednesday. Cheers,

Hummer

Good to see you back posting again and glad to hear that you have been enjoying your outings, Hummer!

That is one very handsome young male RNSA too! They didn't draw blood, did they?

Hummer, howz it going on that Lumix converter? Have you heard anything? I just got my FZ10 back and went out for a fantastic day of shooting with that converter. I want you to have it, not now, but yesterday, because I'm looking forward to some of the photos you get with it. Please let me know, thanks.
