It had been more than a week since I was out scouring one of our favorite haunts for migrating birds. Or just any bird that was willing to show its face.
Lunch time. Our deli sandwich came with a serving of vinegar and oil. Just tear open the package and apply to the bread. It was chilly enough to wear a jacket under the camera harness.
I managed to put a tiny hole in the packet before I carefully tried to make my sandwich even better with a touch of the spicy liquid. Somehow I sprayed a jet of salad dressing all over my pants and jacket. I don't understand why my camera was spared but it was. I looked at my poor phone with the cracked glass. Yup. I got it covered.

This day W9 and I find our celebrity slumming with his American cousins.
"The European Goldfinch is a very common finch seen throughout all of Europe. These goldfinches have been reportedly seen on a regular basis in North America. Because it is a known captive bird kept by pet stores, they are not recognized as wild birds. "

There is no lack of great sounding sparrow ID courses. Here's a snippet from one:

"To flush the birds from their hiding places, he (Tim Keyes) and his fellow co-leader, ornithologist Gene Keferl, brought along a 60-foot rope with weights attached in the middle. During our field sessions, they dragged the rope length-wise through the dense marsh grass of a salt marsh and through the tall weeds of an old field to get the sparrows to come out."

I just think that's hilarious.

John Cassin "...worked at diligently, cataloging and clarifying the institution's [Philadelphia Academy of Natural Sciences]collection of more than 25,000 birds..." allaboutboids.com
Job perk: He named a lot of birds.
This birb could be called the Yabba Dabba Doo bird because that's what he likes to yell.

"...The only problem is, they’re so beautiful, so beautiful. Sometimes one materializes right where we’re sitting and hangs in the air like a thought, watching us, wondering whether we’re good to eat."

"The Aztec god of war, Huitzilopochtli, was represented as a hummingbird for a reason. They are tiny badass warriors."
