mini-bird report >
Linty, please....either you or Frank post...LOL! I enjoy reading about your journeys.
Hehehehehe - I will tell Frank he has either post his own messages in the separate thread or give them to me - every birding trip and I will post them.
If you renew it often ...it will be always in top ..There arent so many messages here in this thread so it is easier to find something...Also If you miss something ...you can find them all together...
In the old Boma ...maybe I hadn't seen your message and maybe you hadn't seen seen my answer..becouse all was in one thread and after a day you missed it
Now I know ...when I 'll see your name ..or your thread ...on the top...I will open it ...and for sure I will do it Lynty
So I should call it something like *Franks reports* ?? If he continues sending me the reports I will do so. It does however seem a cumbersome way of running a blog - having so many individual threads.
Lynty I suggest you to create a new topic in this thread ...where you can put only BF 's reports...So it is easier for you and for us to find all the repors together..Like the topic about the stork cam (have a look )....where you can see all the pics one after the other...Every time you put a message the topic goes automatically first of all and there is a mark in front of it...so we know that there is a new message there...You can do the same when you want to send a new report about Torondo redtail , just write it at your old topic and we all imediatelly will know that you put something new there.....Just try it...At first I thought it was too difficult for me too...but now I love this new Boma
As BIGFRANK finds it too difficult (I agree) to post on Africam now I offered to post his report for the day. I have no idea where to put stuff or how to find it after - it is a miracle if I do find it . Frank's report......
Lynty and I met early this morning and went to Humber Bay Park,as much to walk on such a bright sunny day as to bird watch.We saw plenty to keep us busy including,displaying Mute Swans and Buffleheads.The Buffleheads bobbed and did short liftoffs and splash landings pushing their little chests forward while doing so. 8 Trumpeter Swans were seen and heard.Other dux were Mallard,Gadwall,Hooded Merganser,American Widgeon,Common Goldeneye,Lesser Scaup,American Black Duck and American Coot.Singing Song Sparrows,calling Red-winged Blackbirds and Killdeer more signs spring is springing.We had a great sighting of an American Kestrel,hovering very close to us for a prolonged period looking for its lunch. Beautiful to watch. Lastly as we changed from streetcar to bus we saw 3 Northern Mockingbirds fly away from us. In all a good day! BIGFRANK
I think the american coot only had one leg. It was all I saw - even when the coot was chased by a female mallard all that was visible was the one leg moving like crazy.
thanks stoaty put your site in favourites - barry
I don't keep records or try to take pics of the birds that I see in the UK but if anyone is interested in my birding trips they are normally reported, along with his (bad) photos by my birding partner, Stoaty, on www.stoaty.com!
Thanx Barry, the first bird report. I know it is backyard birding in Canada this weekend, so I hope more ppl will post their sightings. Remember what is common to you, is a rarity for someone else in another part of the world and if you are a birder it is always good to know of someone else's sightings
