    Birding sounds similar but cooler than golf in a lot of ways.

    Maybe if you bought the Swarovki ELs she'd still be your girlfriend.

    FTR, I made fun of a subset of birdwatchers, a subset which invites taunting. FTR2, I'm a lifelong birdwatcher. FTR3, some of my birding companions sport Swaro ELs -- and every damn one of them is a snooty poser coastie.

    It's far less frustrating, IME more rewarding and less expensive (after sunken costs of bins and spotting scope).

    The past 2 weeks stretch has been pretty good for my FOYs: Townsend's Warbler, Dusky Flycatcher, Lark Sparrow, Lazuli Bunting, Pacific-slope Flycatcher, Wilson's Snipe, Clark's Nutcracker, Bushtit, Black-headed Grosbeak, Townsend's Solitaire, Olive-sided Flycatcher ("quick three beers"), Yellow Warbler, Brown-headed Cowbird, American Pipit, Red Crossbill and a few other species that aren't popping in my head as I write this.

    What FOY's did y'all get in the past couple weeks?

    Fucking liar. No way you didn't see a House Sparrow, American Robin and European Starling between January 1 and mid-May.

    Oh yeah...more of a comment for a Timberridge. Walking around with expensive equipment and writing something down in a book that people are just supposed to trust but don't actually care about.

    When I'm out and have my nockers with me, I dig watching birds. One of the best parts of early season scouting.

    Oh, okay. Those who haven't experienced the joy of spring migration will never get it.

    Nope. You're not a birder. When a birder claims to see a species out of normal range, habitat or season, other birders will launch an interrogation, sometimes polite, sometimes not so much. Noob credibility among birders is not so easily earned. Bullshitter will be ostracized from the Christmas Bird Count.The experienced ethical birder knows when to say, "empidonax flycatcher, maybe Hammonds or Willow or Cordilleran, but no voicing" and call it unidentified empidonax. Noobs also do that for accipiters (which actually aren't that hard for a birder with hawk chops).

    I'm psyched the common nighthawks are back on my roof. They're welcome to sit on my roof and gobble up mosquitos as long as they like. I move pretty soon, I'll be a little closer to the river and I think the hummingbird feeder will see a lot of action. No need for glass when they come right to you. Haven't seen a finch yet this year but I do like those songs. Way more than the cardinals, who seem to only exist to wake me up at 4am lately.
    They got a name for the winners in the world

    What species of finch?

    Common Nighthawk is in a family called goatsuckers (no kidding). Cool bird, numbers dwindling due to habitat loss and pesticide use. Mags in the Sierra and Rockies may see another goatsucker species, the Poorwill, in subalpine areas in summer. A Poorwill is sometimes mistaken for a rock (no kidding).
