""Fresh adult" plumage appears in the big Sibley guide. I added "very colorful" as the photo shows the bird more colorful than the guide - this could be normal variation in the bird or the point-and-shoot camera enhancing the…"

"Looks like a Whimbrel to me in very colorful fresh adult plumage. They're found along the California coast in winter."

Bosque Bill replied to Skip's discussion Opinion Sought in the group Burque Birding
"It is my favorite guide for identification and is used by many as "the reference" for North American birds. It is a bit big to carry into the field, so I also have Sibley's Field Guide to Western Birds which is smaller, lighter, &…"

"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."

Bosque Bill replied to Skip's discussion Junco? in the group Burque Birding
"Pink-sided, Oregon, and Gray-headed are probably our most common with the Gray-headed mostly at elevation and confused with Red-backed. I've seen a few in my backyard under the feeders, but they flew before I could get a good ID."

Profile Information

Where I Live:
North Valley in the little neighborhood immediately southwest of the Alameda Bridge called Bosque Dell Acres.
About Me:
I was born and raised in Albuquerque, was in the first graduating class of West Mesa HS, but was away for many years and am very happy to be back home!

My new travel blog... http://bosquebill.blogspot.com
Favorite Thing(s) About Albuquerque:
Birding, biking, the bosque & Beethoven... that about sums it up. Check out my website for a comprehensive list of birds found in these parts, for an interactive map of biking and hiking trails in the bosque and foothills, and more.
My Website:
http://www.bosquebill.com
What I'm Reading:
Been reading the Lord Peter Whimsey series by Dorothy L. Sayers - very well written mysteries set in those golden days of the 1920's in England after the Great War and before the Depression.

I read all the time, always have. My first choice is quality Science Fiction - love space opera, adventure & explorations, and aliens (no, sorry, don't believe they've landed... and you should be glad they have not!) I'll dip into thrillers and/or mysteries from time to time. Anything to escape reality.

Obviously, I don't use this blog very often. No, I'm not asleep, I'm doing other things such as posting to Burque Birding or Open Space or Born in Burque or Westside or Isotopes Fans or… Continue

Happy New Year

Posted on January 1, 2008 at 10:13am 0 Comments

I'm trying to work on my bird list database queries to accommodate the new year... what I call my Y2.008K problem, but my head is too fuzzy this morning... so I'm doing this instead.

Finished the second Daniel Abraham novel weeks ago and can highly recommend it - I can't wait for the next two "seasons."

OK, enough goofing off. Back to the code mill.

Daniel Abraham's Novels

Posted on November 20, 2007 at 5:36pm 0 Comments

Hey yall,



I'm in the middle of the second of Daniel Abraham's The Long Price Quartet and loving it. I learned about this local author right here on DCF. Now fantasy is not usually my preference; I'm more of a hard science fiction guy, but this is tasty and interesting. There are no gnomes or witches. There are innovative concepts, gripping plot lines, a fascinating society, and characters you come to care about.



I recommend you start with "A Shadow in Summer" before… Continue

Thanks! I do feel much better now. Still not 100%, but in ways I feel better than I have in years.

Thanks for thinking of that! I saw the special, noted it was availablable on DVD, checked Netflix, put it on order there, and I see it should arrive in my mail box today! I'll see if there are any extras. I first learned of Glass when I won tickets to see Koyaanisqatsi back in the 1980s. I'm a big fan now of him and Godfrey Regio :)

Woo hoo! Yet another appreciator of opera. There can't be enough of us, you know. :)

I joined the bird group you wrote about in Burque Birding. I like the idea of "green" birding and then sharing those adventures.

Ahh...the maligned Westside. You can't get the stellar views of the Sandias on the east side, after all. Most of my Albuquerque life has been spend living on the westside. I'm glad we're on the same side of the river.

I appreciate your website. We purchased a fixeruper in corrales in the hopes of retiring to that area to enjoy the birds and the bosque.
