Saw first kingbird today--way early...Also a pair of downy woodpeckers.

Between noon and around 2pm today (Feb 15), saw easily thousands of Sandhill Cranes flying in bands over the Rio, pausing to catch updrafts, waiting for smaller groups to catch up. I'm downtown, was walking home from store, heard them (so loud yet so far away!), took pictures. Got home, used a better camera to zoom in on them, get some movies. Fascinating! But it seems to me that it's very early... and too early to wear shorts, but I did. I'll head for Tingley Beach tomorrow to see if any of the huge birds lazing around there. At least when we get strange weather it's nicer than weather in many other places!

BIRDS OF NEW MEXICO by Stan Tekiela has been a helpful one for my wife and me. There are many bird field guides-often they show birds that we don't find here.

I've been told that the very best book for identifying birds is the Sibley Guide to Birds.  Opinions, anyone?  Thank you.

Thank You!

The Rio Grande Nature Center has guided bird walks on Sat. and Sun am - 8 pm during the summer months. They are a great way to learn more about bird identification and behavior.

Can anyone tell me about any bird watching events coming up or classes I could register for? 

Thanks,

Bonita

Great idea! Now I know where the swallows who patrol the arroyo/ditch between Kit Carson Park and Tingley Beach hang out.  I saw about half a dozen this morning, including one who sat on a telephone wire for me so I could get movies of him.  He even sang a bit!  Below, in the stream, were a Mallard Duck couple with 5 ducklings. This was a good day to go birding.

Speaking of swallows ... park sometime at the NE corner of the Central Ave. bridge over the Rio Grande, and take a short walk down underneath the bridge, right at the river's edge, and look up.  There must be a hundred swallows' nests attached to the understructure of the bridge.  It's quite a sight from the bridge sidewalk to watch them fly back and forth over the river to look for insects, but it's even better from below!

Saw and photographed 4 Swallows at their usual mid Spring hang out, Central and San Mateo. I think that perhaps the evening lights attract bugs for them, and the birds also may grab bugs from car grills. Then I saw a single Swallow as my Central bus crossed through the intersection at University Bvld; the birds like to rest on telephone wires. It's nice to see these summer daredevils. I'll watch for them west of The Frontier (south of Central on Cornell) as well as over the ditch to the northeast of Tingley Beach. Also on Thursday (May 09) I saw a Western Tanager on south Harvard; it was eating seeds high in a tree.
